“I had been thinking of you in a different context, having finally caught up with your film “Spring in the Colony”, which I found extremely engrossing, layered as it now is with my own memories of Kolkata. I like the combination of genres – love story, coming of age, Brechtian chorus and learning play, multi-stranded complex narrative, with each thread having its own pace and dynamics, its own turning points and ironic reversals – and the fine performances. A little gem of a film, for which once more, my warm thanks!”
