The direction and the team deserves a lot of praise no doubt at all. Having said this, the concept of the cinema without dialogues isn't exactly new. Notable ones in recent times include The Artist, Labor of Love aka Asha Jaoar Majhe. This one is the best of this new 'genre' since the Labor of Love. But what's new is Ankita Chakraborty in a title role in a Bengali presentation. Unfortunately she hasn't got many opportunities to showcase her immense acting talent post her breakthrough performance in real-life role in the Bengali TV-series Ishti Kutum, a rarity in Bengali Television these days. Heard she is planning to move to Mumbai due to lack of good roles here. Request Bengali directors to cast her in more and more title roles. We don't have too many actors who can act really well in urban roles in drama genre without the histrionic that prevail in the Bengali Television. She is a natural actor and deserves more robust roles in Bengali movies/TV/webseries. It's our loss otherwise.

A wonderful piece of art. The best aspect of the work is that you would never realize that it is without a single dialogue. How a poetry can be recited, a conversation can be made, lives can be touched and emotions can be played with, without a single word spoken. No doubt that the way the heroine have acted and expressed is marvelous. But the overall fluency, expressions, music and sequence of the story telling is par excellence. The film deserves a patient viewing for 20 minutes, and in return it would give you pure bliss and joy.

Wow! Where did this gem come from :) ?? This is not a silent movie for the sake of it. This is a movie where words would just seem redundant. Rarely can we see a short film with such rich visual poetry. Take a bow!!

Cont'd... Tarpor chele ta k mone pore or eyes gulo capture korar scene ta.. the dancing suggesting her latent desire to be a dancer(probably).. all these are due to the brilliant direction.. really nice..

Firstly the film is excellent and there are a few things I would like to mention separately.. the film having no dialogues in it adds to the suggestiveness of every little detail and the innumerable interpretations which can be drawn from them.. I loved this aspect because it doesn't confine you to a particular meaning.. now when it comes to scenes there's two or three scenes which I think are class apart.. prothomei hochhe jokhon meye ta pujo korche.. ei scene ta ta questions not only God's intervention in human life but prostitutes according to convention were assumed to be bestial and godless.. ei aspect ta niye onek kichu bolte pari Ami.. the window scene with green morning and the closed window at night.. the white building contrasted with the prevailing darkness within the room inside..

Excellent, very soft and heart touching movie. Many times without saying a word you can tell every thing. This is a very clear example of such things. Arnab Chatterjee, you remind me of Mr. Satyajit Ray. Excellent fat-less acting and very prompt back scoring. Will waiting for more such movies #Addatimes.com Adda ta bes jome uthe6e.

Silence Speaks Volumes.... My hats off to the actors, director & the entire crew of this film!!! It's challenging to put the different elements of acting into a coherent theme (without any words) to present such a beautiful drama! Fantastic job! :)

Watched the movie with emotional intensity. It is an excellent picture where " Silence is Golden " is glorified. With her expression Ankita has reflected her inner mind full of bathos. Bravo to Director Arnab for this venture!!!

This is one of those movies that touches both our heart and soul. Silence indeed has it's own language and in that silence Ankita found words within herself, words for him and we found the words of the director. Will be eagerly waiting for the next work from this team.

To me, the experience of watching this short film was nothing less than absorbing a terse love poem, just like the one we heard during the end credits. Kudos to its creator.
