Director: Lokesh Gupte
Quick Viewpoint: ‘Ek Sangaychay…Unsaid Harmony’ wastes an important issue by over hammering of the ‘message’.
- Kay Kay Menon! Though not an extraordinary character, he still manages to interest us in his character by is performance.
- The seriousness of the topic that parents need to communicate with their children.
- Technically the film is neat. Lokesh Gupte as a first time director does a decent job as a director (though not as a writer).
- Literally, nothing happens in the second half! The film only deals with the aftermath of a big incident that has happened in the first half. None of it feels important on a narrative level!
- The whole screenplay has many logical errors. From the very backdrop of a strict father who is an inspector to his relationship with his 20 something kid, all of it feels distant from reality.
- The film deals with an important subject like youth suicides but fails at understanding the issue in depth. It just doesn’t understand how a planned suicide is different from a momentary action!
- The second half keeps stressing on the message repeatedly even when the message is incomplete & the context of the situation is something else.
- Kay Kay Menon’s character is expected to get some sympathy from the viewers & has been projected in the film similarly. But while watching the film it is impossible to feel any sympathy for him as the audience only see him as a stupid over egoistic father.
Final Verdict: ‘Ek Sangaychay…Unsaid Harmony’ doesn’t reach any harmony on the screenplay level. But feels like an empty film that is stretched to an extent where it has the soul itself.
