Celluloid mirror to social malaise

His seminal 1973 classic Garam Hava still resonates in the recess of viewers. An ecletic cinema on pangs and pains of partition remembered as definite work on post-1947 tragedy. Since then Mysore Shrinivas Sathyu, auteur extraordinary has given sterling works as Kanneshwara Rama, Chitegu Chinte, Bara.  Much water has flown since then and the iconic director returns after 12-year hiatus to test his metier yet again with “Ijjodu” — The Incompatible.   

Though one can still witness flashes of brilliance of his cinematic acumen, “Ijjodu”, is however, not masterclass.

A let down from the maestro, Ijjodu, which was awaited with avid expectations, fleets and flits like rudderless boat, sparkling only in its last ten minutes.

Still “Ijjodu” is a cinema you should have no qualms gracing given that Sathyu is at helm again with another thought-provoking film that needs encouragement and patronage.
