Kaalpurush
Kaalpurush (Memories in the Mist).
2005. India. Written and directed by Buddhadeb Dasgupta


Kaalpurush (Memories in the Mist). 2005. India. Written and directed by Buddhadeb Dasgupta. With Rahul Bose, Sameera Reddy, Mithun Chakravarty. An intimate portrait of a father, his son, and the women in their lives, told with characteristic melancholy and sardonic humor by master Bengali filmmaker Dasgupta. Rahul Bose, described by Time Magazine as "the superstar of Indian arthouse cinema," plays a mild-mannered office clerk coping with his faltering career, his ambitious wife’s sudden celebrity, and haunting memories of his father, who continues to exert a powerful influence many years after their painful estrangement. As in Dasgupta’s Tale of a Naughty Girl and Chased by Dreams, the past impinges on the present in mysterious, almost surreal ways. In Bengali, English subtitles. 120 min. New York premiere.
Wednesday, April 25, 5:45; Sunday, April 29, 4:00. T1
