Mani Kaul

Though I am not a big fan of Mani Kaul’s features, his films are visually striking and have a strong emotional impact, the impact changes in its quality and quantity from scene to scene. One leaves the theater, which is usually a dingy arthouse one, with this bundle of disjointed emotions, makes you feel that the film maker is trying to make a cinematic statement rather than create poetry / art on screen. Duvidha, though, is worth a watch.
