As a student of Bengali it immediately occurred to me that the words were not corresponding to what was being said and I felt like the film was seeking an international audience. The surrealism of directors such as Gilliam is very pointed and well-crafted whereas Tader Desh is like a garish maelstrom of obnoxious digital effects. Was throwing in kiss scenes, lesbianism, and drug use supposed to make the film edgy? It just comes off as a cheap move. Of course the director has to display his name (AGAIN) right in the middle of the film just to remind you. Tader Desh was obviously produced by someone with too much ego and not enough skill as a film maker.
Mr. Sen, being a colleague of Q by the virtue of being co-directors on the upcoming film 'X', it's unethical of you to review his film and also gloat about it. Like Anupama Chopra doesn't review Vidhu Vinod Chopra's films, people who are in any manner affiliated with a filmmaker should not be reviewing their films.

Hey, I don't wish to barge into this cultural superiority battle , engaging as it may seem, but what's wrong in being a tribal ? We have some lovely tribes in our country & many tourists visit India only to acquaint themselves with our tribal populace. Why harness this prejudice.
