The Desciple Reviews
The Hindu: Chaitanya Tamhane’s sophomore film The Disciple is an introspective foray into this inherent need to resist change, while juxtaposing it with the ever-changing modern-day truisms of contemporary existence.
Indian Express: The Disciple will serve as a reminder of how often we as a society idolise and pedestal-ise some things and some people and in that process, how we successfully distance ourselves from the cracks that now accompany them. Watch The Disciple, and maybe next time you won’t skimp on those classical music concert tickets and avoid asking for passes from some organiser. They might just cost you as much as a coffee from your favourite coffee shop.
Viewers Review: The Disciple is a Haley’s comet which normalises a mediocre life even after following your passion. A simple but extremely realistic and relatable tale about a disciple’s journey and about the dying Indian Classical Music. Sumitra Bhave’s voice as Maai giving life lessons interwoven with continous music from the veena gives a soothing experience to the viewers soul. Cinematography gives a visual delight. All this makes The Disciple a must watch film and Chaitanya Tamhane as an important Indian filmmaker- Hemant Sakunde
