Raincoat

Putu saw Rituparno Ghosh's new one, Raincoat, which was grey, cold, bleak and depressing. Not like Calcutta rain at all - more like London or something. The cast is great on the whole, but the editing is not so hot - its far, far too long. The Delhi crowd around Putu werent too impressed by the whole 'whiny losers weep and lie' theme of the movie, but Putu liked, on the whole. Actual characters in there, even if very uninspiring. Ending very predictable, though. Apart from Aishwarya looking lovely in a rather Ophelia-esque way, the best things about the movie were Annu Kapoor, who was brilliantly sleazy, and Mouli Ganguly, who does the whole kinky Bengali boudi bit effortlessly, and, Putu suspects, unintentionally. Much more chemistry between her and Devgan than between the lead pair.
