The amateur cast who originally hails from the same village in Assam where this coming-of-age film is set in is the highlight of the otherwise dull story about following one's dreams. If I say that it is the only highlight of the film other than the beautiful nature- kissed shots, most of which I hear were done in natural light, it'd be like me chasing the ideal dream about this review. I can try and relate to all there is about not conforming to the rules of society, but when a story is filled with bits and pieces, which are average per se and not as a whole, I find that the message gets lost. That is exactly what happens in Rima Das's Village Rockstars where a group of school kids, led by a sometimes taciturn, sometimes high- powered Dhunu the only female member decide and try to start a rock band. Driven by imagination and a one-time experience at a musical soiree, Dhunu and her mates encounter a series of limitations, none of which hinder their aspirations because the film has everything sorted out for them. Even if they do, Dhunu finds a way despite being mysteriously hit by puberty. A film for aspiring cinematographers. TN.
