Ghawre Bairey Aaj is a 2019 Indian drama film directed by Aparna Sen, starring Anirban Bhattacharya, Tuhina Das, and Rwitobroto Mukherjee. The movie is based on Rabindranath Tagore's novel Ghare-Baire, which explores the themes of love, friendship, politics, and patriotism. The film is set in contemporary Kolkata, where the story revolves around three central characters- Sandip (Anirban Bhattacharya), a social activist; Nikhilesh (Rwitobroto Mukherjee), a publisher and his wife Bimala (Tuhina Das). Sandip comes to Nikhilesh's home to seek his help in political activism, and soon becomes friends with Bimala. Bimala, who till now had a sheltered life in her husband's home, is drawn to Sandip's charisma and ideals.

As Bimala starts to spend more time with Sandip, she is exposed to the harsh realities of politics and the oppression faced by the common people. She is inspired by Sandip's speeches and the fight for justice, and soon becomes an active member of the movement. However, as the political situation worsens, Bimala realizes that she has fallen in love with Sandip, and is torn between her loyalty to her husband and her newfound passion.

The film beautifully captures the complexity of relationships and the power dynamics that exist between individuals. The lead actors give nuanced performances, bringing life to their characters and making the audience empathize with their struggles. Anirban Bhattacharya is convincing as the charismatic Sandip and portrays the idealistic young leader with great conviction. Tuhina Das as Bimala gives a restrained yet powerful performance, showcasing the internal struggles of a woman caught between duty and passion. Rwitobroto Mukherjee as the calm and collected Nikhilesh is a contrast to Sandip's fiery personality, and brings balance to the story.

The film is shot in a minimalist style, with the focus on the characters and their conflicts. The use of natural lighting and the simple yet elegant set design create a sense of realism and authenticity. The music by Debajyoti Mishra complements the story and provides an emotional backdrop to the scenes.

Overall, Ghawre Bairey Aaj is a moving and thought-provoking film that explores the themes of love, politics, and patriotism in a nuanced and sensitive manner. Aparna Sen's direction and the brilliant performances by the cast make this a must-watch film for fans of Hindi cinema.
