Film Review: Nil Battey Sannata



Nil Battey Sannata = Emotions + Hope - Melodrama...
At the face of it, it seems to be a cathartic journey of a mother- daughter duo but as the film takes you smoothly towards the denouement, you will surely feel a whiff of sensibilities related to so many minute details of humanitarian aspects..love, faith, dreams, struggle, roadblocks, friends, well wishers, hurt, jealousy and nevertheless REALIZATION & REPENTATION..This film again reminded me that there is no alternative to "hard work" for people who are not blessed with luck or monetary facilities, that sheer determination can remove any roadblock on your way and above all " a mother's love" cannot be substituted by anything in this world.. Hats off to the director for daring to make a commercial , very well researched( especially the UPSC EXAM. DETAILS) film out of an inferno of emotions, swara bhaskar for the flawless natural acting, "the principal" aka Pankaj Tripathi for making the character much more than a comic one and of course Ratna Pathak Shah for showcasing an unconventional relationship with her maid played by Swara...a soulful film which I feel should be shown in each and every school of the country...
