Avik Mukhopadhyay’s cinematography in October is proof positive that an austere, minimalistic mood can also appear poetic on-screen if shot with intelligence and perception. October is a meditative film and both director Shoojit Sircar and Mukhopadhyay have captured the story’s essence without resorting to excess. To achieve this, Mukhopadhyay uses almost one-point lighting and a very restricted colour palette. He has shot with an Arri Alexa mini with Cooke S4 lenses.
One of the most affecting scenes in the film is a major character’s death, but here too the movie doesn’t tip into melodrama. Mukhopadhyay chooses a pale yellow light complemented with thin blue, and effectively communicates the melancholic atmosphere. Having won the National Award for cinematography an eye-widening three times, Mukhopadhyay is presently shooting Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla starring Amitabh Bachchan.
