Rabindranath Tagore Movie:
Expressing her thoughts on her Twitter handle, Swastika Mukherjee firmly stated, “Robi Thakur should be left untouched. No one should portray him.”
While many Bengali netizens resonated with her sentiment, a few expressed their disagreement. One netizen remarked, “There should be a purpose behind depicting Rabi Thakur.” Another individual shared, “While Bengal has a deep understanding of his persona, the rest of India might not be as acquainted.
It is essential to tell his story through cinema, although the choice of which phase of his life to portray becomes crucial. If the focus is solely on his later days at Shantiniketan, the narrative might lack depth.”
