Starring: Konkana Sen Sharma, Prasenjit, Pallabi Chatterjee
Directed by Rituparno Ghosh
Yet another tale of marital infidelity. There may not seem anything remarkably different about
Dosor. But this Bengali film finds Rituparno Ghosh in fine form, managing to do what he knows best: looking intimately at the fragility of relationships, exploring the depths of his characters’ innermost emotions.
Something about Dosor reminded me of Kieslowski’s Three Colours Blue. The car accident, a death, its repercussions, the hidden betrayals that a catastrophe can brutally bring to surface and a journey of reconciliation that the protagonist has to go on. Like Blue, the central character is that of a wife reconciling with grief. But, unlike Blue, the husband is still alive; it’s the seeming end of her relationship with him that she is really mourning.
After a weekend rendezvous, Kaushik and Mita meet with an accident...
