He is a Mahara-shtrian, residing in Andhra Pradesh, writing Hindi books with Farsi titles. While you attempt to determine this out, Goutam Ghose's Yatra retains getting derailed at a number of locations.
In the method of deciphering a author's creativeness that strikes between reality and fiction, Ghose goes virtually breathless with an anti-consumerism message. The author Dashrath Joglekar (Nana Patekar – distracted), on his strategy to Delhi to obtain an award, meets a filmmaker (Nakul Vaid) they usually get speaking. Dashrath flashbacks to his novel Janaza, wherein an alter ego, will get concerned within the lifetime of a courtesan Lajwanti (Rekha). She has been raped by her patron's buddies, and has nowhere to go. When the patron's males threaten the household, he takes her to Hyderabad's crimson gentle space, the place she is often comfortable.
At the awards operate, paradoxically sponsored by a metal firm (is company assist for tradition even a giant problem any extra?), Dashrath provides a giant speech towards the evils of materialism – which is the literal bit. At a extra summary stage, Ghose's (or Dashrath's) concepts hold popping in as sudden inserts– random scenes about identity-eroding BPO tradition, a callous media, the risks of the MMS enabled mobile phone, farmer suicides and so forth.
All of this vaguely connects to Dashrath's life / artwork, when he ignores his spouse (Deepti Naval – competent) and youngsters to take his trophy to Lajwanti, who he has historically not met after he left her on the bordello. She takes a break in her classical music riyaaz to do a raunchy bar dance like dance quantity for a bunch of drunk males – which might be meant as a criticism of Bollywood destroying the classical arts.
Dashrath's time at Lajwanti's home will get more and more weird, and the movie ends on an inconclusive notice – the entire expertise leaving the viewer befuddled and emotionally individuous. Rekha has performed the tawaif so typically, she strikes from Munnibai to Umrao Jaan with languid ease and presents no surprises; nonetheless, her spark saves the movie from truly fizzling out utterly.
Ghose has made some very highly effective movies prior to now like Dakhal, Paar and Antarjali Yatra – right here his want for making a considerable assertion and reaching a wider viewers makes him stumble and fall between two stools. Those in search of the Goutam Ghose form of cinema might be upset, a brand new viewers not uncovered to his work might be unforgiving.
