    Disclaimer: As a sensitive co-viewer and cine-lover, I would not like to share the secret of this thriller movie - at any cost!!!!

    First time in life, I headed for a movie on first-day-first-show ... that too of Prosentjit [ more popularly called as “Posenjit” in Bengal] ... that too in Bangalore … Did not really even day-dream the same in past!!

    I won't say that the heart was content, as we came out of the theater! The good side of this feeling - "Sesh hoyeo hoilo na sesh" [ When end is not really the end - it enthralls ]. And the part to blame is the salesmanship of the economist-turned-director Srijit - with the promos, music video, media coverage he made our thirst so acute that it was difficult to quench it completely. All of us had a clear guess on the movie-matter, from the teasers. When you see exactly that's what happening on the screen - it gets really disappointing, and I started hating when the title song pitched in a disguise of a mock end. The following ten minutes makes you like the movie more, and make you put yours hats off to Srijit. Then I started appreciating his strategy to build up the climax, seeded since the promos itself. Story-wise, the movies' overall impression has reminded me that of Sushmita Sen starrer SAMAY, finally.
    Once again, Prosenjit strikes an adorable power-packed acting in the role of a middle-aged-sharp-but-rough-n-tough-IPS officer. Param played the more crucial role - a nerdy, young police officer, a tender-heart-lover, an underdog in front of an expert - he showed off all these colors pretty well. Raima and Abir were spontaneous in their respective roles. Another classic came from the veteran, ace director Goutam Ghosh - as he characterize brilliantly the role of a failed poet - and special kudos to the original writer of those lines of vibrant, revolutionary poetry recited by him.
    Music of the movie has been sincere, but does not play a pivotal role in the movie. An effort from Anupam, with Musician's Hat, well accepted and encouraged. But there is a touch of monotony in his singing style. As he is the lyricist too, one observation is sometimes converting a modern-poetry [Adhunik Kobita] into a song forcefully makes it really heavy! Overall, usage of wide variety of instruments and vocals singers has made the musical bouquet a colorful one. The background scoring is job well done too.
    When the sweet wrapper of modesty in story-like conversation falls off, and dialogues in cinema adopt the lingo of reality, it comes as a shocker to many of us. But I relish a fun looking at the maturity. The truth is that that's how we talk in real life. Like two college-pass-out buddies are not expected to converse without slang, similarly a police officer is no strange using some hard-hitting swear words. Srijit took a big stand to mature Bengali movie in this aspect, but looking at the timeline, I am pretty confident that this screenplay did not get any indulgence from "Delhi Belly" - a mere contemporary thought from new generation movie makers. This movie has traces of some subtle comedy, not really attributed to those vulgar verbals.
    Overall a good movie worth watching, 4/5.
