Akash (Firdous) writes the lyrics, Diganta (Amitabha Bhattacharya) gives the music and Aditi (Rituparna Sengupta) sings the song in the film “Aamar Bhalolaga Aamar Bhalobasa” and thus Lata Mangeshkar comes back once again in Bengali cinema after long 16 years.
This is the only plus point of the film “Aamar Bhalolaga Aamar Bhalobasa” released this week. The film is directed by Chanchal Chakraborty. I have tried hard, but failed to remember the name of a single film directed by Chanchal Chakraborty before this. Is it his debut film? I don’t know either.
The story is nothing new- “Ek Phool Do Mali”. Firdous and Rituparna are childhood friend. They grew up in the same village. Firdous has a lion’s heart. He always try to do good for others. But he never thinks for himself. So, he never got time to say “I LOVE YOU” to Rituparna. So he remains as a silent “Mali”.
There arrives Amitabha the new doctor of the village health center. He becomes the second “Mali” of Rituparna. As Firdous is the silent “Mali”, Amitabha takes the role of the vocal “Mali”. Rituparna was waiting for such a vocal “Mali” and so in one “Barsaat Ki Raat”, Ritu and Amitabha meet physically and Ritu becomes pregnant. Amitabha, listening this, decides to marry Rituparna Immediately. And Firdous decides to leave village with a job letter in his hand. But he promised to be present on the wedding day of Amitabha and Ritu.
But there were Tamal Roy Chowdhury and Ramaprasad Banik in the script. They are in change of doing all types of unbelievable villainous jobs. They tried to kill Amitabha, and Ritu’s father Soumitra Chatterjee requested Firdous to marry her “Lagnabrasta” daughter.
On the wedding night Firdous came to know that Ritu is pregnant and Ritu thinks it was Firdous who has killed Diganta to marry her. So, Ritu decides not to sleep with Firdous though they are husband and wife.
The story line after this becomes so stupid, it doesn’t need any elaborate description. At the end Firdous becomes father of a Church. How? Father Sabyasachi Chakraborty has picked him up from the street in an unconscious state and gives him shelter. After the death of Sabyasachi, he becomes the father. But why Firdous was lying unconscious in the street? Because he was very ill and he was feeling from a nursing home where he found Amitabha alive, and Rituparna delivering a daughter. But why Firdous went to nursing home? Because he was totally drunk. Why? Because Biplab Chatterjee’s sister was dead and Rituparna was separated. But who is Biplab Chatterjee? Please don’t ask too many questions.
I forgot to mention that the story you hear up this point is in flash back. Whose flash back? I don’t know. May be Rituparna’s, may be Firdous’s.
