Directed by Rahi Anil Barve, Anand Gandhi
What on earth is this? This….this….magnificent creature masquerading as a movie haunts your senses for long after the closing images of raging destruction in the stunning finale
Little wonder that the incredible Anand Gandhi who created—no, I won’t use the mundane word ‘made’— the astonishing The Ship Of Theseus, is closely associated with Tumbbad. The visual imagery of this film is incomparable. Perhaps Sanjay Leela Bhansali on a particularly anxious night, would think up the visual language of Tumbbad. Raging and divine, Tumbbad looks like a universe that God created and forgot to put on the human map.
Feverish and fertile, this is a work of luminous lunacy. A parable on greed, lust and lustful greed this magical mystical film weaves layer after layer of drama based on illusion, subterfuge and self-delusion.
