“Shyamal Uncle Turns off the Lights” to Lights

Shyamal Uncle Turns off the Lights, All Lights Film Magazine, ALFM

Shyamal Uncle Turns off the Lights is a real life incident of our protagonist Shyamal Bhattacharya. The film is about an 80 year old Kolkata retiree Shyamal uncle in a mission to turn off the lights in his street after sunrise when he noticed that it stayed all the day long. The struggles and insult he suffered is depicted the same from Shyamal Bhattacharya’s life.

Shyamal uncle turns off the light was done in a novelistic way without any pre-planned scripts and casting by Suman Ghosh after Nobel Chor starred by Mithun Chakraborty and Soumitra Chatterjee. This low budget Bengali film was bought for the Mumbai Film Festival 2012. It was Suman Ghosh’s wish to make a socially realist film that at the same time is an intimate character portrait. Most of the characters including Shyamal Uncle were facing the camera for the first time. The script for this film was prepared on spot and the characters was decided the same. Only the script and casting for the leading role Shyamal Uncle was done.

Here in this film the entire generation is represented by Shyamal Uncle who has seen the changes happening around him for the last two decades. The generations which feel odd in their morality, their beliefs, and their convictions don’t find a place or value in the changed scenario and this is shown clearly in the film. Shyamal uncle turns off the light became more beautiful through the songs by Mayookh Bhaumik, and through the visuals by the cinematographer Ranjan Palit. The production work was done by Arindam Gosh films. This film also known as Shyamal kaku and korpreshenar baati . The end takes on a surrealistic tone which was necessary to bring about the exhilaration and poignancy with which the film aspired to connect with the viewer.
