Amal Neerad’s ‘Bheeshma Parvam’ is an epic opera mounted on a gargantuan canvas that talks of bonds and betrayals and reeks of blood. With sprawling subject matter that rightly captures the ambition of its writers, ‘Bheeshma Parvam’ is a delightful ode to some of the best mobster cinematic works to have come out this side of the world.
‘Love’ attempts a horrific vivisection of a dysfunctional marriage and deftly works on the seeds of depressive confusion that it sows. Confronting their primal fears, the couple in ‘Love’ has a go at each other desperately, almost hysterically, letting us take a sneak peek at the monsters that lurk within them, that would stop at nothing until they have struck down their adversary dead. Another triumph from Khalid Rahman, this one!
