There are some films that haunt you long after you’ve finished watching them, long after you have stopped thinking about them. Interior-Café Night by Adhiraj Bose is one such brilliant short film. Set in a café in Kolkata, this thirteen-minute moving film brings home the idea of love and loss, and how life sometimes gives you another chance to reclaim that love.
It’s one of those lump-in-the-throat films that are subtly poignant, which pull at your heart and make you believe in true love and its immense strength. Naseeruddin Shah plays a cafe owner, who one night, just before closing time, meets his lost-love, played by Shernaz Patel. She had left him 30 years ago.
What is brilliant about the film, apart from the acting, is the way it intercuts between the flashback to the night the lovers parted and the present, when destiny brought them together again. At times the past is playing in the background of the present scene, where the two are talking about the past.
The film features Shweta Basu Prasad, who has returned and moved past her controversies
to prove that her work is what people should focus on.
