Chauranga Movie Review: A hard-hitting trip to rural India
‘Chauranga’ is a movie about the social evils and mentality of the rural India without over-the-top drama and Bollywood-style one-liners. A simple yet hard-hitting one; which limits itself to a few characters. Surely not a movie for those who love entertaining flicks. Here’s what I have to say about the movie:

Star Cast: Sanjay Suri, Soham Maitra, Ena Saha, Riddhi Sen, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Arpita Chatterjee and Anshuman Jha

Director: Bikas Ranjan Mishra

Producers: Onir, Sanjay Suri and Mohan Mulani

Claps For: Cinematography, Direction and Story

Slaps For: Half-baked characters

What’s New: Story about rural India and the mentality of the village men without going over-the-top, keeping it raw and simple.

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Story: Chauranga is about the illiterate Santu and his love for Mona- the zamindar’s daughter for whom his mother works. What he doesn’t know is that the zamindar and his mother are having a secret affair. The story moves on when his brother, who studies outside the village, comes back home and gets to know about his love for the girl.

Performance: Sanjay Suri has done a decent job, and we do not blame him since he tries his best to look like the rough-and-tough village man but still comes across as a suave guy who has just donned the clothes of one.

The kids- Soham Maitra and Riddhi Sen have done a good job and look endearing on-screen. Their scenes are a treat to watch. Ena Saha does well in the little role given to her.

Anshuman Jha barely has a few dialogues but lets his body language do the talking.

Dhritiman Chatterjee is wonderful as the blind priest- perhaps an indication to the blind beliefs of rural India. Arpita Chatterjee and Tannishtha Chatterjee have done a commendable job.

Director: As stated earlier, Bikram Ranjan Mishra goes the raw way- without adding any drama. He keeps it very simple and captures the essence of the day-to-day lives of the village men. Be it the elder brother forcing his little brother to sit down and complete the food or the way a zamindar hides his affair with a woman of the untouchable caste- it all has been captured in a wonderful manner.

However, in his bid to cover the various social evils prevailing in rural India, the essence of each character gets lost. While none of them is a hero, neither of their characters comes across as something one can take back home.

Cinematography and background music is good and engaging.

Combo-On-Offer: Drama

Verdict: We give the movie CLAPS for showing the true side of rural India without adding any spices.
