shashilal nair dares tread a path few makers explore in this study of pre-pubescect sexual behaviour in a mumbai tenenment ,
an infatuated teenager aditya SEAL spies on his voluptuous neighbour with a telescope in a reminder of hitchcock'S rear window.
is it love lust or just curiosity is primal as the woman remains unaware and oblivious of his intentions,
AND THAT DEFINES THE PARAMETERS FOR A TRULY PSYCHOLOGICAL SEX EPIC WHICH IS FAR SUPERIOR TO CRYTALOWSKIS DEKALOG OR THE ITALIAN DECAMERON .
as for peeping tom i think this is far more aesthetic and artistic in every aspect although that is in a totally different voyeuristic context where sex becomes a violent ballad and lust turns into a lustreless horror .
this is rather gentle ,sympathetic yet very explorative and it becomes even more substantive for its sincerity then it was even intended to be in the first instance .
the camera turns from curiosity to lust to vexation and ultimately frustration and disappointment but it remains focused and true to the vision it explores ,
this story is taken a step furter from the sexual epic studies by fellini and bertolucci as it shows the protagonists exchanging places and the minute tdomestic trivia are rendered like musical montages which fascinate the inner eye ,
it gives a rare and precious insight into the sexual intimacy and te eternal question of what constitutes attraction in human desire .
the movie has a casual chic a natural charm and a spontaneous art with its silent frames and expressive performers .
the enigmatic child -the sexually active neighbour and the nameless lover with the wrinkled face of the wizened granny who secretly observes her young grandson is sheer genius .
she indulges casually in her chores where ordinary tasks portray cinematic poetry ,
the camera is eloquent as it moves to show her watering plants and listening to music .
this translates into real cinematic language which is reminiscent of dekalog and peeping tom but much more consummate ,
monisha and aditya have a silent interaction where they communicate through a telescope and the audience become the voyeurs .
the woman eats -she moves and she makes love and it is sheer poetry in motion where even buttering a slice of bread transforms into art
