Yours Truly (2018) | Hindi | Sanjoy Nag
Mithi Kumar is 57, has never been married, and lives alone in her ancestral house where she has rented the ground floor to Vijay (@pankajtripathi__ ), an astrologer obsessed with his soothsayer parrot Yudhisthir and loudly makes love to his wife, because he can't "control the sound". Mithi is predominantly lonely, and doesn't have much to do except commute to work and back. There are a lot of scenes with trains and the flavour of local train travel in West Bengal has been beautifully captured. And the reason why Mithi loves taking the train because she is secretly in love with the announcer at Howrah station, or more accurately his voice. It sounds weird, but imagine the things that can fascinate someone. She finds solace in the voice of the announcer whom she has never met, and keeps writing him letters year after year, simply addressed as "announcer", never getting a reply. But in her head she can hear him speak and guide her through daily activities. She fantasises about his hand caressing her face, or him telling her how beautiful she looks. She grows impatient sometimes, thinking that her one-sided love is going nowhere. But she brings herself back to believing that this is how it is meant to be, and this make-believe world of love is all that is left to give her company. Her life is in contrast with her tenant Vijay's, whose life is entirely intertwined with his wife. Her personality is opposite to her much younger sister Laali's (@aahanakumra), who is outspoken and unapologetic about everything. But Mithi has built a world of her own, where she is friends with only two things - loneliness and the announcer's voice, interspersed by restless curiosities.
This one is a thoughtful and sensitive movie, with meticulous nuances that speak a lot about how love and loneliness can go hand in hand. It probably doesn't have the spark of movies that try to give similar messages, like The Lunchbox for example. But it's quite a quick watch, so feel free to try it out.
