Masaan review: Dark narrative that provides beautiful cinematic experience
Neeraj Ghaywan's Masaan has finally hit the theatres after being honoured with two awards and a five-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. Set against the visually powerful backdrop of funeral pyres and burning ghats in Varanasi, Masaan is a poetic narrative of pathos and love. The film takes on the tragedy of life, death and loss. The tight screenplay leaves no space for loopholes or stretched moments throughout the 109-minutes of the movie. All in all, Masaan is a hard-hitting narrative set against the powerful backdrop that will stay with you long after you've left the theatres. It is and beautiful cinematic experience you don't want to miss.
