Without Strings / Binisutoy
Dir: Atanu Ghosh / India / 94 minutes / Bengali / 2019
Kajal and Sraboni, both in their mid thirties, meet as strangers at the audition of a reality game show. Presumably coming from ordinary middle class backgrounds, they get connected when Sraboni suffers an accidental fall, injuring her hand badly. Kajal helps her get up and escorts her to the doctor. On the way, they narrate two engrossing tales from their lives, depicting modest human dilemma. The stories proceed through the time they spend together. But the ending leads to a bitter altercation.
