  • 10:10 rating: 1 out of 10(Chandi Mukherjee wrote on 29 Nov 2008)

    10:10 means the digital watch display at the past ten. This is director Arip Paul’s first film.
    An aged businessman (Soumitra Chattopadhyay), an reader of books like “Godfather”, wants to be a real life “don”. He has also a gang but they are like jokers carrying most of the time toy-guns.

    This man has a daughter (Aparajita Ghosh Das) who does not like her father’s mafia identity. She loves a young boy (Subrata Dutta) who wants to be a film hero. He gets a chance to become that in a new Bengali film produced by another young mafia (Padmanava Dasgupta) of this city, who happens to be arch rival of the aged don.

    There are two female journalist one of them is a foreigner (Claudia Ciesla) who has come frm Germany to make a story on Bengali mafia leaders.

    Accidentally the Rs. 50,000 was deposited in the mobile number of the aspiring hero instead of the aged don. The culprit was the left hand of the don (Kanchan Mallick). And this mistake created all the remaining fuss of this film.

    It seems that director Arin Paul had no clue of treating such a “nonsense” – drama in celluloid. He had shot the film in super sixteen and then blow it up and after that it has been digitized and projected on the big screen. So all these low budget technology has made the film more miserable. Director Paul and his cinematographer have minimum knowledge of making the reasonable film in a low budget. And the result is blurred, out of focus background, big grains in the foregrounds and sometimes the entire scene in low light.

    At times there is no camera movement at all. Minimum sense of camera placement is also missing and hence the right-left confusion happens. This is not deliberate, this is sheer ignorance.

    There are unnecessary song seqyences in the movie. Out of those songs, two are lifted from popular Bengali folk and Hindi film song. Soumitra Chattopadhyay is miserable in such a comic role. Kanchan Mallick is as loud as he remains ever. Only exception is Padmanava Dasgupta. His script is very-very poor, but as a competitive don is excellent, especially when he faces he German journalist for an interview as a producer of the Bengali film.

    If you mistake this film as a comic spoof of a mafia film, you will be wrong.
