Movie Review – ‘Kantara’

The last show means the story of The Last Film Show

The story of this film is given by the director Pan Nalin, which he has brought to the screen through the Gujarati film ‘Chello Show’. This film has been in the news for a long time because the official nomination of Oscar has sent this film from India. ‘Chello Show’ has received a lot of love and appreciation at several international film festivals. Now the film has been released in theaters.

The story of the film revolves around a 9-year-old boy (Bhavin Rabari). His father, despite being of high caste, sells tea to earn a living. However, he has high expectations from his son. It is hoped that the son will brighten the name of the family. After watching a movie in a single theater, his son becomes so obsessed with cinema that he only wants to watch his movies. He skips school and goes to watch movies but gets caught. Even though he ate fenugreek from his father’s hand due to this act, his love for films did not decrease. Just then, Fazal (Bhavesh Shrimali), a cinema hall projectionist, comes into her life. Hungry for time is watching different movies while Fazal likes to eat good food and that gives him time. At that time mom used to cook him delicious food in tiffin everyday which he would give to Fazal and in return he would watch new movies everyday.

Based on the movies he watched while sitting in the projection room, Samay along with his friends created a cinema of his own imagination using many things like broken bicycles, screens, bulbs, mirrors. Even the father, who considers his son useless, is amazed at his understanding of cinema. However, with the advent of modern technology, Fazal is fired and the time suffers the biggest shock due to this. After which the story of the film reaches its destination with various twists and turns.

Doctor G Movie Review: The story of the film is absolutely shocking, Ayushmann Khurrana and Shefali Shah will laugh out loud.


There has been a controversy regarding the Bollywood industry and Pan India films for some time now. But after watching the Gujarati film ‘Chello Show’, one realizes that apart from Hindi and South cinema, films made in other regional languages ​​are also great. However, regional language films cannot reach a large audience due to language limitations. This film has also come into lime light only after the talk of going to Oscar. In terms of direction, Pan Nalin has hired celluloid Hindi films and technicians who operate projectors to keep the film close to reality. He has made an excellent film by combining the story with innocent childhood. Several scenes in the film like stealing the reel with the help of friends and going to the ruins to watch the film, cleaning the projector and making a mess out of it and making bangles out of the reels are very well executed. The transition between two scenes that the director shows connects the narrative and the character’s state of mind. Along with this, the director has also shown the mother’s cooking style in a fun manner.

Cinematography, Editing and Acting

Cinematography by Swapnil Sonvane, editing by Shreyas Beltangday and Praveen Bhatt is okay. Cyril Morin’s music is average but the film’s visual effects and background music are powerful. Pre-climax and climax will make you emotional. Bhaveen’s performance is heart touching. It doesn’t look like he’s acting as if he’s a real person. Fazal’s character is realistic as well as ironic, he has done justice to the character. Bhavin’s friends Vikas Bata, Rahul Koli, Soban Makwa, Kishan Parmar, Vijay Mer also look innocent like him. Deepen Rawal also plays the role of father with tea. Richa Meena also looks natural as the mother.

Why should you watch ‘The Last Show’?

Nominated as an official Oscar entry, the film can be seen for its innocence and technique.
