Great Films

Great Films aren’t just good cinematic experience, it’s life wrapped in moving images making us change the way we look at something. If it’s not a life altering experience, it’s not a great film.

Akaler Sandhane [1980] Review: A famine from the past and its echoes into the future

It’s unfortunate that forty years on, Akaler Sandhane is as relevant and timely as it was, back when it released. The villagers have wider access to transportation, food and mobile phones. But the lack of awareness, cultural understanding and opportunities remains consistent. Films like these must get made today. We need more honest filmmakers like Mrinal Sen in these times to reveal our truth. Because if art doesn’t, no one will.
