Paradiso is a movie that is at once comic, and also intensely profound and tragic. Though set in 1960’s, in a city, somewhere resembling Kolkata, in India, yet, the story is relevant, now all the more. In fact, the theme of the movie is timeless. The loneliness of a man who mirrors the perception of his family, because of his self imposed silence is at once hilarious as well dark. In a way it mirrors the emptiness of our soul. The man lives in the world, one `Real’, one `Imagined’ till the point where both collide and become one. To see the movie is at once humbling and profound.
