      Default Kaashi---in search of Ganga

      220px-Kaashi_in_Search_of_Ganga.jpg

      Ashdoc's favourite cinematic haunt---the mofussil towns of UP Bihar , and I was not going to miss a chance of seeing them again on celluloid .

      The movie begins with Devina ( Aishwarya Devan ) who is a journalist coming to the holy town of Benaras in UP to cover it , and striking a friendship with Kaashi Chaudhary ( Sharman Joshi ) . He is a small town guy and she is an urban sophisticate . She says that she does not mind the difference in their standard because she is lonely in life with no family and begins to hang out with him . He introduces her to his family and she quickly becomes part of their regular routine . One thing leads to another and soon she takes the lead in taking him to bed .

      But one day Devina comes to Kaashi and tells him that his sister Ganga is missing and they frantically search for her . The two meet Ganga's college principal and she says that no such student is in the college . But a girl says that she is Ganga's classmate and that Ganga was in love with the son of a prominent man and she got pregnant with his child . Ever since that she has gone missing .

      Kaashi's world turns upside down and he goes and threatens Balwant Pandey the man whose son allegedly made his sister pregnant . Soon Devina takes him to the police who ask him to identify a dead body which has clothes given by Devina to Ganga but has disfigured face . Kaashi believes that the body is of Ganga .

      Mad with rage , Kaashi searches for Balwant's son Abimanyu Pandey who he believes was responsible for the pregnancy and death of his beloved sister and murders him . But in the subsequent trial after the disposition of witnesses the judge comes to the conclusion that no such person as Ganga existed and Kaashi is a mentally disturbed person who lives in make believe world . But Kaashi believes that Balwant Pandey has bribed the judge and attacks and kills Pandey in court .

      So what is the truth ? And who is Devina after whose coming in his life all these things suddenly happened ? The answers are in the movie .

      The movie begins as a straightforward revenge thriller that later metamorphoses into a suspense whodunit , and turns interesting in the later part of the second half . Background music is good and songs are sentimental and pleasing to hear . Acting by everyone is appropriate . Colours are darkish however and photography is okay .

      The movie does show what I wanted to see---the life of Benaras with religious rituals on the banks of the holy Ganges with diyas lighted and prayers sung .

      Verdict---Okay .

      Two and a half stars out of five .

      Please tell me what happens? Is he mad or Ganga was real. I'm so intrigued.

      He is mad . Devina takes advantage of this to convince him that his sister Ganga has been kidnapped and provokes him to murder her enemies like Balwant Pandey and his son . Actually Ganga and kaashi's parents have died years ago and this has left him mentally unstable . But Devina uses her own sister who claims that she was a student studying in the same college as Ganga to convince kaashi of a false love affair and false pregnancy due to Abhimanyu Pandey . Then comes up with a disfigured dead body with clothes which she has given to kaashi for giving to Ganga worn on the body . This fills kaashi with rage and he kills Balwant Pandey and Abhimanyu Pandey , who are Devina's enemies and killing whom is her purpose .

      But by this time the love affair between Devina and kaashi has gone too far and she has fallen in love with him . So in the end she tells him the truth . But kaashi says that he can form relationships only with dead people ( like his sister Ganga ) . So he kills Devina too . In the end he is shown hallucinating that the dead Devina is with him and taking care of him and he is happy in that state though lying in mental hospital .

      മറന്നു പോകാവുന്ന മനസ്സും.....നിലച്ചു പോകാവുന്ന ഹൃദയവുമാണ് നമ്മുടേത്....ഇതിനിടയിൽ ......കിട്ടുന്ന കുറച്ചു സമയം സ്നേഹിക്കാനും...സന്തോഷിക്കാനും കഴിഞ്ഞാൽ...അതാണ് നമ്മുടെ സ്വർഗ്ഗ തുല്യമായ ജീവിതം
