33. Black (2005)
Here we have a Helen Keller-esque story interpreted by Bollywood and plays about like those overwrought Oscar bait movies that play to the balconies (see recent hackneyed attempts like The Upside and Stonewall). The music is loud, the performances are broad and the melodrama is laid on thick. I wasn't impressed.

Image
34. Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola (2013)
Using the thinnest of plots, this movie is basically a setup for one music number after another interspersed with hi-jinx and revelry. In a way, it kind of distills Bollywood down to its essence and is at least tonally consistent, but is ultimately forgettable and not terribly compelling.

Image
35. Ardh Satya (1983)
Anant Velankar is a cop who wants to make a difference but in trying to fight against the corruption that plagues his city, he starts drowning in his own demons. I found this one to be very compelling with good acting and a very serious, gritty story pitched at an even keel with a believable arc to it. This really should be more well known (it's only on one of the three India lists) and is definitely one of the better movies I've watched this month.

11. Nagarik / The Citizen (Ritwik Ghatak, 1952)
12. Ajantrik / Pathetic Fallacy (Ritwik Ghatak, 1958)
13. Meghe Dhaka Tara / The Cloud-Capped Star (Ritwik Ghatak, 1960)
14. Taare Zameen Par / Like Stars on Earth (Aamir Khan/Amole Gupta, 2007)
15. Andhadhum / The Blind Melody (Sriram Raghavan, 2018)
16. Komal Gandhar / A Soft Note on a Sharp Scale (Ritwik Ghatak, 1961)
17. Titas Ekti Nodir Naam / A River Called Titas (Ritwik Ghatak, 1973)
18. Jukti, Takko Aar Gappo / Reason, Debate and a Story (Ritwik Ghatak, 1974)

These three films present Ghatak moving in a somewhat different direction narratively from his earlier work; they are much more difficult to understand, at least for me, and more overtly political as well as indebted to various kinds of theatrical and filmic experimentation. While you might say that the earlier features belong to something of the same tradition that Satyajit Ray's early work occupies, and show a heavy influence from Italian neorealism, these three go off in very different directions from the earlier work and to a large extent from each other.

Komal Gandhar is the story of a clash between rival theater groups, from both the West (Indian) Bengali and East (Bangladeshi) traditions. Like Meghe Dhaka Tara it gives us the wonderful Supriya Choudhury in the lead role as Ansuya who spends much of the film trying to bring these groups together and deal with her own conflicting feelings about both the politics and real-life relationships. It's a tough film without a background in either the history or this kind of theater, and matters were made worse by a fairly mediocre print quality but the music (as always in Ghatak) is wonderful and overall it feels like another piece of the jigsaw puzzle of this world that I'm gradually starting to piece together.

Titas is a bit easier to grapple with, thanks in large part to the high quality of the Criterion copy that's now available, but the mixing of mythological elements into this story of poor village fisherman along the banks of the eponymous river still made for lots of challenges. It's an extraordinarily beautiful film, in fact one of the most beautiful b&w films I've seen, period, but I will certainly need another viewing to take it all in.

My favorite of the three on initial viewing is pretty clearly the Jukti, Takko Aar Gappo, the director's last feature, due in no small part to Ghatak's own lead performance as Neelkantha, a failed, alcoholic writer - very much a self-portrait - who, living only for drink, loses his wife and embarks on something of an odyssey travelling around the country with another, younger man and a young woman, and eventually a third man - a Sanskrit scholar who speaks mostly in that language, which alas was unsubbed. This also has plenty of challenges for those unfamiliar with Bengali history - really the subject of all of Ghatak's films in one way or another - or mythology, but it's quite beautiful, at times rather funny, and seems to me to represent the director/actor's quest to find his own place in his cinema in a radically self-critical way, exploring his own mistakes and failures and those of his contemporaries like Ray, and in particular their failure to deal with politics and the plight of the ordinary people. It might be Ghatak's most overtly Marxist film; it certainly feels like his most personal and singular work.

19. Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (Mira Nair, 1996, USA/INDIA /UK/Japan/Germany)

Filmed in India entirely in English with a principal cast of mostly British-born actors, this is one of those weird coproductions made by a liberal/left-wing director in and about a conservative country that realistically has no place in that country. According to IMDb this didn't show in India until 20 years after filming and had to be shot largely in secret; there are a few similar stories regarding Iranian films and I'd imagine others as well. It's a sumptuous, beautifully shot and fairly well-acted story that takes it's name from the ancient erotic Sanskrit text and it certainly seems like Nair wants this to be some kind of new-old tale of the relationship between sex and love, but alas it feels very cliched and ordinary in most respects outside of the sex scenes, which are fairly steamy even by conventional western standards (though far from porn) let alone those of south Asia. Essentially the story of a servant who becomes the courtesan to a seemingly powerful king, rivaling her girlhood friend who has become the queen, all after having falling in love with the king's sculptor who is naturally a rival to the kind in this love quadrangle. All four of the lead actors are attractive, especially Indira Varma as Maya, the courtesan, and it's not unpleasant to watch or anything but it really doesn't add up to much in the end.

20. Raja Harishchandra (Dhundiraj Govind Phalke, 1913) + extras

So this is India's first feature, but in it's surviving form it's only the first reel (10 minutes or so). The YouTube video that's linked on ICM is 53 minutes, with a short documentary preceding the full reel, then another copy of that reel with some more footage - and I think some alternate shots - then more short fragments of work from the director; it's essentially a Greatest Hits of Phalke. This is some fascinating stuff and despite the poor condition of the works (all of them dating from the teens I think though some of the later pieces are unidentified) it's possible to see a real talent at work; the special effects in particular are pretty inventive and high quality for the time and compare well enough to what was being produced in the USA, France or Germany in this period. Definitely worth seeing for those interested in pre-WWI film history, in India or elsewhere.

Yes, frbrown, 'Towers of Silence' has some haunting, beautiful compositions, mostly influenced by Zoroastrianism imagery and symbolism. It often attempts to be in Parajanov's territory with mixed results, but it shows a director with ambition, talent and with something to say about death, enlightenment and a desire/pursuit to understand the invisible world of dreams and nightmares that surrounds us,

The main production company remains a mystery, but I would certainly discover which country is the No.1 producer if I could find the credit somewhere. But I know for sure that it made the Top 10 Bangladeshi films of all time (which is not on icm, not even as a unofficial list).

IMDB country listings are shite, each of the poorest African country was added production even though they only served for location purposes. For example all those enviromental docs listed up to 10 countries, taking them all where it was filmed.

This nicely showcases Bhutan's beautiful natural scenery with several breathtaking shots of valleys and mountains obscured by clouds. As a narrative though, it is less successful. The teenager's humiliation, shame and repression is curious, but the very slow pacing (lots of elongated landscape shots) dilutes the intensity of the drama - and it is a full 50 minutes in before the narrative becomes more than a just a repetitive look at her daily routine.

6. Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001, Ashutosh Gowariker) India: 5.5 - Everything leading up to it was horrible clichéd (It's not enough the antagonist is colonizing party overtaxing people, he also has to be a horrible human who shoots innocent rabbits) and I could have done without the love triangle, but the cricket game self was engaging. So basically the movie is okay when it just shows what happening, but completely falters when it tries to do any characterization or backstory.

9. Andhadhun (2018) India

Loaded with several twists and turns, little can be said about the plot here without ruining a fresh experience, but the film really places the concept of human decency in question, weaving a tapestry of morally conflicted characters, some of whom act less honorably than others. There are several suspenseful moments as the protagonist's life comes in danger and as things spiral increasingly out of control. Hitchcockian stuff. Great ending too.

36. Charulata (1964)
37. Agantuk a.k.a. The Stranger (1991)
Here's a pair of Satyajit Ray movies that while on the surface seem quite divergent are actually more similar in theme than they appear. Both are centered around affluent, intellectual households who seem to be comfortable with where they are but are upended by a visitor who reveals a certain beauty in life beyond just the tangible. These are both excellent movies and really do make for an good double feature.

Here's an Exorcist pastiche possession story done in typical Bollywood style with over-direction and thick melodrama. It does have a few effective moments but is ultimately just too heavy-handed and cliche in its approach.

39. Chhal (2002)
The plot of this one is a pretty standard undercover cop infiltrating a gang type thing. This one really feels like Bollywood's attempt to ape the Hong Kong action crime thrillers of John Woo and Ringo Lam, but the director lacks the style to pull it off effectively. What's left are a bunch of poorly staged gunfights interspersed with a fairly suspense-free 'will they find out who the cop is' story that is done to MUCH better effect the same year this was released by Infernal Affairs.

40. Bhuvan Shome (1969)
I actually liked this one quite a bit. It's the story of a bitter, strict businessman who thinks nothing of getting people fired for minor infractions and who decides to go on a hunting trip as a holiday. What he finds in his interactions with the locals while on his trip gives him a new insight into life and helps him discover a better way to live in some ways. I actually liked the understated humor in this quite a bit. Shome comes across as a kind of hybrid of Ebenezer Scrooge and Elmer Fudd, visibly upset by others' happiness and contentment with life. The directing is of special note in that it uses visual cues to punctuate jokes and drive home the points its making without explicitly stating it which is definitely a refreshing change of pace from the often over-blown, sledgehammer approach that so many Bollywood filmmakers take, probably pulled from the Jerry Bruckheimer school of filmmaking.

This was clearly made as an indictment of India's caste class system, but the film works fine as a more universal exploitation tale. There are some great images (axe handle illuminated by lightning), yet the short duration works against the story. The ending is very abrupt while the grueling penultimate scene feels like it should have lasted for longer. The film leaves a quiet impact as it is, but it would have been interesting to see a 90 minute version.

41. Mera Naam Joker (1970)
This movie basically stretches the sad-on-the-inside clown trope to it's 4-hour breaking point while mixing in the struggling entertainer trope. I just found the whole thing to be exhausting and not even as entertaining as the similar length Lagaan (also not worth the time but at least the cricket games were mildly fun to watch).

Image
42. Bhoot Bungla (1965)
With the music being heavily influenced by 60's American and British Rock 'n' Roll and the plot pitched at Scooby Doo meets Abbott & Costello levels of camp with some attempts at old dark house spookiness, I actually had fun with this one. Heck, even my two-year-old was entertained by it. She especially liked the segment with the dancing ghosts and skeletons.

A grim drama that eerily foreshadows the Covid-19 panic buying. The backdrop here is World War II, with British confiscation of rice apparently the cause of rice shortages and soaring prices and while it is disappointing that the film does not delve into the cause, the lack of context gives the tale a very universal quality. Striking images include women scouring for "pond snails" and an assaulted man who only cares if his stashed rice has been stolen.

43. Uski Roti a.k.a. Our Daily Bread (1970)
Very good movie. Not something you want to watch if you're feeling down in the dumps though.

Image
44. Arth (1982)
I was surprised by how restrained this movie was given its plot of a woman's husband leaving her after having an affair. It's the kind of thing that in other hands would be a garish, overblown melodrama over three hours long with musical numbers and punctuated with a happy ending. Very well made although like Uski Roti, not the best movie to watch if you want something lighter.

Image
45. The Burning Train (1980)
This one basically plays out like a disaster flick. A vengeful madman has planted a bomb on a train that once detonated causes the train to barrel down the rails on fire unable to stop and with the helpless passengers at its unbridled mercy. It isn't bad as entertainment but definitely feels too drawn out (like a lot of these '70s disaster movies in general).

46. Rann (2010)
Attempting to aspire to great political thrillers like All the President's Men and the biting commentary on the media of films like Network but with the brute force approach of a Michael Bay movie, Rann doesn't have the faith in its actors or material to let the story unfold naturally, over-relying on quick cuts, restless cameras and overacting in a sort of effort to assuage an ADD addled audience that craves visceral thrills in its meditative dramas.

7. Mughal-E-Azam [The Emperor of the Mughals] (1960, K. Asif) India: 5.0 - A prince falls in love with a servant girl and his father, the emperor, doesn't like that cause tradition and social status. While the grand production designs are something to be admired, there (again) is no reason why the simplistic story has to last over 3 hrs. It makes the plot very repetitive, with the prince constantly defying his father, including going to all out war, rehashing the same conflict over and over again, and the girl moving in and out of prison. It all ends

with the mother of the girl suddenly remembering the emperor owns her a favor, which he grants by freeing the girl, which somehow makes him the benevolent hero of this story :/
The characters are as one-dimensional as one can expect from a fairy tale.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!
