Commemoative art for Rituparno Ghosh
Published:
Rituparno Ghosh died last month. He was a leading Bengali filmmaker, the magnitude of whose journey in transforming the cinema of Bengal was rivalled only by the magnitude of his own transformation. He is widely regarded as a champion of the subject of sexuality in cinema, and put the art back into the films that came out of Tollywood.
 
In India, there are six seasons, not four. They are referred to as the "Shashta-Ritu" in Bengali. Playing on that, I have shown six "Ritus", or six stages in the transformation of Rituparno Ghosh, as though they were six seasons in his grand life.
