In Darbaan if you view the film carefully and observe the shades being used in each and every frame, you will notice the difference and it is directly related to the moment of the story. For instance, the scenes at the beginning essaying Raicharan and young Anukul’s bond are shown in bright shades, while those essaying Raichu’s emotions and guilt are portrayed through earthy colours. It’s a small yet significant detailing.

Since Darbaan is set in the post-independence era, the events such as the nationalization of coal mines needed to be on point. The use of real locations and antiques added a perfect element to the story. Although there were scenes with special effects in it, most of the visuals were natural.

Overall, Darbaan has redefined the importance of visual storytelling and has explained how colours can play a significant role in the narration.
