Baandhon, by Jahnu Barua (110’)

‘We are common people. The world is too big for us. We have no choice but to trust in it.’

The multiple-National-Award-winning director Jahnu Barua’s Baandhon is an unhurried and minimalist film about an elderly couple leading a sheltered existence in a town in Assam. It’s a bare-bones story that is literally just this: a perennially-bickering old man and his wife are unexpectedly visited by the harsh realities of the outside world when their grandson Pona – an IIT Mumbai student who is the centre of their universe – goes missing on the night of 26/11.
