Director Sangeeta Dutta does manage to sculpt a sensitive portrait of a family in flux and imbues her film with some deft strokes that capture loss and longing. There is a lilt in the narrative and a poise in depiction. But the film does tend to get sluggish in places and unfold with undue languor. It’s the performances however which help you override the ennui that threatens to slip in, now and then. While Girish Karnad is a dignified modern avatar of King Lear, it is Om Puri’s ambiguity as friend and rival-in-love that adds a tang to the drama. As for the three daughters, they make a motivated threesome, adding all the requisite spice to the family drama. Sadly, Sharmila remains somewhat of a silhouette, dabbling intermittently with her pots, plants and poetry. We would have definitely liked to see more of her and her enigmatic relationship with Om Puri. Life Goes On isn’t offbeat, but it is a different watch. Experience it.
