VARA: A BLESSING
BY PRADIP BISWAS, THE INDIAN EXPRESS NEWSPAPERS, INDIA


This is 3rd film from Khyentse Norbu of Bhutan. His maiden film TRAVELERS AND MAGICIANS has been highly rated for its poetic quality. The film borrows magic realism which is unexpected from Norbu. The current film is set in a rural India, a young woman named LILA and her mother VINATA, a temple dancer wed to a Hindu god, and find themselves on the fringes of society, struggling to make ends meet in a turbulent pit. SHYAM, a low-caste village boy with  a passion of becoming a sculptor in the city. He is propelled to ask Lila to model for him.  Lila agrees, even though she knows that if they are discovered, both their lives will confront a social taboo and jeopardy.

Pitted against the lush countryside in an Indian village not yet caught up with the modern world, Vara a Blessing seamlessly intertwines vivid dream-worlds of Hindu gods, classical Bharatanatyam dance, and music.  It’s a timeless story of love and devotion. The plot is straight lacks the elements of his earlier magic.

Norbu has employed a different style in the film marked by artistic tenacity and sensitive urgency. We, however, are presented half nude body of Vara which often is jarring. Norbu could have raised the film of essence of art of dancing  to a height of memorable grandeur.
If not a very great film, Norbu shows promise to mature in his next venture.
