Nachom-ia Kumpasar (Let's Dance to the Rhythm)
This was a Konkani movie made in 2015. It is based on the lives of 2 jazz artistes, Chris Perry and Lorna Cordeiro who thrived in the 1960s-70s.
Chris Perry was a Goan composer, songwriter and film producer. Lorna Cordeiro was a Konkani singer known as the "Nightingale of Goa".
No wonder, this movie has got some really wonderful songs and though I didn't understand the language but the music was great.
There were English subtitles that helped me comprehend this film that I saw in January 2020.
It really impacted me as the story was narrated superbly and enacted wonderfully well by Vijay Maurya, Palomi Ghosh and their co-stars.
Kudos to Bardroy Barretto who directed it so well. It was simply superb.
Nachom-ia Kumpasar has won 24 international, 3 national and 10 state awards making it the most awarded Konkani film.
It was also shortlisted at the 2016 Oscars for Best Picture and Best Original Score.
Do I really need to write more?
Go, watch this movie and you'll be mesmerised by the magic it weaves....
