Travelling to unknown lands with no plan to return, might sound like an exotic way of escaping the everyday grind. But what if you are forced to move out of your country that till yesterday was your own? What if you are banished from your own country because you were penning down words that meant threat to the set up? Nirbashito is the story of one such writer who is transported to Stockholm from Kolkata without much warning.
She is being told by her well wishers, that she is in danger if she continues to stay here. In a haste she leaves behind her home, her daughter - a beautiful feline whom she fondly calls baghini. Her journey to Stockholm was marked with respect, as a honorary citizenship was granted to her.
Uprooted from a place that she knew as home, her struggles become an everyday affair in a different part of the world. She feels the thread connecting her to her daughter has been cut suddenly. She waits to get back to writing. While Stockholm seems a comfortable ground, but to evade danger she is cut out of any connection with the world.
Director Churni Ganguly's Nirbashito is the story of a struggle in banishment. Even though the narrative sketch reveals the real unfortunate story of writer Taslima Nasreen, but the story and the way the narrative has been played upon on screen presents for a more universal story of struggle held within an individual's struggle.
Cinematography and direction builds every frame as a postcard that is worth archiving. Churni Ganguly as the nameless writer has perfected the role too and the woman's struggle will make you feel inspired.
To summarize, Nirbhashito documents a struggle that is definitely not worth a miss. The beauty of the struggle is poetically perfected with the right tinge of emotions. Watch Nirbashito to undergo the journey of loneliness.
