Fantastic workBy a customer from Reading, England , 23 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Utsab is an amazing film. I had been trying to get hold of the DVD for quite some time. The first disk they sent me was totally unplayable. Finally after much waiting, the replacement arrived.
It was well worth the wait.
Utsab is subtle. It explores relationships and the Bengalee ethos (to quote Joy) to the viewer's delight. Even for a non bengalee like me, it was an absolute pleasure to watch.
All lose ends are neatly tied at the end, just like in life.
There is no melodrama, but restrained performances. Quite like the old Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies.
Absolute must watch.
The only thing that did annoy me a bit was 'Keya''s dubbing and constant sobbing.....:-S

Good Bengali filmBy a customer from Manchester, UK , 25 Apr 2007Sensitive film....explores the various relationships in the family meeting over Durga Puja...
faulty DVD sent twiceBy a customer from Birmingham , 05 Mar 2007The 1 star rating is meant for the DVD and for Tesco. First they sent me a DVD that didn't play. Then I returned it with a complaint and guess what? They sent another DVD that wouldn't play either. The movie appeared to be brilliant till the first half that I could see, but Tesco spoilt it all.
Probably very good if I got to see itBy a customer from Newcastle upon Tyne , 20 Sep 2006If you rent this beware - apart from the fact the copy I got was heavily worn and the last half hour would not play, the format of the disk does not seem compatible with all players - of three machines I got it to play only on a recent Panasonic DVD recorder. Also if like me you need the subtitles you will require several nights to freeze frame and try and decipher the white subtitles for the numerous scenes where light shades in the bottom of the picture make them more or less unreadable for normal viewing.
Poor qualityBy a customer from UK , 28 May 2006Terrible video quality, it looks like a couterfeit video that someone has shot in the cinema with a camcorder and then transferred to VHS. On top of this, the subtitles are white-on-white, making them impossible to read at times. Unwatchable.
What a wasteBy Kiran Sidhar from London , 11 Mar 2006An excellent example of that is brilliant about Indian cinema, wasted by appalling picture quality and subtitles that you can't read.
