Nachom-ia Kumpasar Reviews and Ratings
Loosely based on the lives of musicians Chris Perry and Lorna Cordeiro, Nachom-ia Kumpasar celebrates the jazz scene of Goa in the 1960s with a beautifully executed score based on songs by Perry. Save for slightly inauthentic Konkani accents, under Bardroy Barretto’s excellent direction, Vijay Maurya and Palomi Ghosh deliver solid performances as Lawrence Vaz an Dona Pereira, the cinematic stand-ins for Chris and Lorna. Prince Jacob as Logic, the band manager, provides comedic relief from their star-crossed romance. Shot beautifully by Suhas Gujarathi and with jaw-dropping National Award-wining production design by Aparna Raina, Nachom-ia Kumpasar is a powerful exploration of love, music and the inextricable connection between the two.
