Bikas Ranjan Mishra’s Pagla Ghoda (adapted from Badal Sircar’s famous play with the same name) holds a mirror for us to reflect. The film which is available on Hotstar depicts four men in a crematorium reminiscing about their unyielding love interests when an unknown girl was burning in the pyre. In the two hours that unfold, the film portrays ‘Pagla Ghoda’ or ‘Mad Horse’ as a metaphor for the rush of blood in our veins, of lost chances and vague morals, of individual cowardice and collective will to upheld the dichotomies and sustain the injustices meted towards women. Bikas Mishra’s film remains truthful to the original and yet, raises a few questions that will haunt us even after the film is over. A Silhouette review.
