An NCPA-NFAI Presentation
Bengali Film with English Subtitles
A dawn to dusk account of a young man in search of a job. This is his day of an interview in a swell Indo-British firm where, logically, he has to look his best. His only suit is in the laundry, and as luck would have it, all city laundries are on strike from that morning. The film is an intense search for a new suit to be borrowed from any of his friends, the loss of a good one procured that way, again a frantic search, and finally the interview – an erratic blending of fictional narrative, news reel coverage and near-cinema-verite type documentation.
