Season’s Greetings Film Evaluation: Celina Jaitly and Lillette Dubey Are a Delight


Meant to be a tribute to my nice much-missed good friend Rituparno Ghosh, Season’s Greetings is glutted with clotted feelings, all making an attempt to  make themselves heard in  a movie too taken up with its concepts of aesthetic artwork and cinema to hassle with  how actual or unreal the characters seem when positioned into these soulful songs of  Rabindranath Tagore.

Rituparno (God bless his soul) additionally performed a number of  Rabindra Sangeet in his  movies. However in his cinema, the plaintive tones had been natural. Right here they’re thrust upon a story already creaking and  groaning with representational tasks.

We first meet the movie’s protagonist Romita (the beautiful Celina Jaitly making a comeback ) making love with Usmaan. The amorous strikes make method for a selfconscious dialog the place Usmaan talks about Ammi  and Romita waxes eloquently on her Maa…The cultural combine is  rubbed into our face,  smearing the selfconsciously creative frames with  affectations of a ‘message’.

Quickly Romita and her ponytailed  lover-boy are at her mom’s fantastically appointed  house for dinner exchanging sarcastic barbs about  the husband/father who we collect has not come to go to Romita and her mom for 15 years.  Because the dialog on the dinner desk strikes from accusatory to banal to dreadfully boring, a transgender househelp Chopola (Sree Ghatak) bustles about with the barbeque and purple wine.

 In 45 minutes, the movie needs to cram in problems with Hindu-Muslim marriage, transgender acceptance,  marital   dedication and a calculated shock ending that  subsumes one other  essential  debate on Article  377.
Sadly the movie doesn’t have the wherewithal to tug via the a number of points it  creates for itself. What’s going to maintain  you watching Season’s Greetings until the tip are the 2 actresses, Lillette Dubey and Celina Jaitly Haag, so stunning and so above the bickering that they’re pushed into!
