“Most of us have had definitive characters like the Bioscopewala in our childhoods – people whose peripheral legacies inevitably fade during our pursuit of adulthood. Even when we move forward, it always comes at the cost of leaving someone behind.”
“The passage of time may dim the glow of moving images just as it can reduce the intensity of human feelings, but do they ever vanish altogether? In Medhekar’s take on Tagore’s timeless classic, they certainly do not; if anything, they assume new depth and urgency. ”
“The tales of Tagore that are a part of every Bengali family folklore have far more depth and intensity, the reverberations of which linger on in their psyche forever. Medhekar’s additions are enough to contemporise a tale that never dates; what he doesn’t add are moments that would have added another layer to Bioscopewala.”
