22 shey srabon! The date is mingled in the bloodstreams, veins of every bengali/indian as its the death day of the great Rabindranath Tagore. Hence the date itself has become immortal. But can you imagine this as a "chryme" thriller movies title..?impossible.and here begins -22 shey srabon ..the movie.
Kolkata, through many decades of movie making has been portrayed in various ways..tillottama, city of joy but a side which we always have been aware of but never been bold enoug to depict...22 lurks around the dark alleys of dark peoples minds , and the city. This darkness prevails throughout the movie, in story,in characters,even some times it slowly creeps into audiences minds.
If story is regarded as the base of every movie, 22 has a very good base. Good script, but what happens if a cup of "chai" is served with "malaai maarkey".?.If the script is chaai, the dialogues are obviously “malaai"...its harsh, its coarse, its rough...but it is what we hear day by day in every corner, street, bus, train, schools college even in our families..so over all the base was rock solid.
Performance wise i think Parambrata(Abhijit Pakrashi) was very good,he had the flow, timing , excellent dialouge delivery..what more could you ask for from a talented actor director..? but woh kya hota hai ke "dal bhat ar biriyanir tofat ta bujhtey hobey" we can surely upgrade parom to fried rice but the biriyani was some one else... Raima(Amrita) was also up to the mark as she did not have huge significance but well written character has been justified by the actress. In every sequence where she featured she was appropriate..Abir(surjo) was really a striking stunning performer.. short sweet sleek( Kuri bochor por free thakley abar try korbo) leaves a mark of cupidity . Goutam Ghosh(Nibaran) was - and is -and will be a character which the movie world would not forget for decades..an ace director himself makes a huge influence on the heart of people. In a character of a lost manic-depressive, unrecognized poet ,he is brilliant and i fear that would this role have been given to some one else how much we could have lost. A big salute to the maker of "Moner Manush"
The editing was good could have been better
With the use of various new type of cameras like 5D, Soumik halder(D.O.P) gives us a lively superb presentation.
Musically the movie offers u a lot, Anupam ( music director)adds to the pain of the previous "autograph". it is highly soothing, sensible, sweet, dusky and melodious. Surely this years one of the biggest hit tracks are "ekbar bol nei and gobhire jao"
Srijit Mukherji,is a director with only 2 films old including 22. what to say..will u understand by adjectives..i dont know. i think i should write a letter to him..the strangulated bengali movie industry was in high need of oxygen..it demanded a director who can provide culture, heritage, passion with technicality, modernity with intelligent presentation. If autograph marked him as "potential" then 22 lifts him to the ranks of 'outstanding". Every frame , every pixel is abrupt and is perfect. A hugeapplause was given to the ovie by a jampacked hall after the end credits. This is really touching, and extraordinary. Films are made for this appreciation and 22 deserves it.
Now if u are thinking this trash writer has overlooked the identity of the film, u are mistaken just as the viewers of srabon in a theatre.
PROSENJIT or shall I say I say PRABIR sir…how could he do it…the slangs, the look , expressions, feel..what ever u could dream of, he delivers..a magnificent performance, undoubtedly one of his best..amazingly the actor- director duo has created magic in last two films..the movie has prosenjit written all over it…the blend, the charisma..leaves you in a booz. Its grand its huge its majestic..its remarkable.
22 srabon a must watch for every movie lover and as it has every right to badge the title “22shey srabon”..in its own right it claims to be a masterpiece. A must watch..ultimately thanking Venkatesh Films for making such a extraordinary movie. And to the viewers who appreciate good cinema.
This puja make yourself drench in srabon.It is superb.
