Baishe Srabon and Towering Expectations and why not? May be because of such huge expectations from the "Autograph" team powered by Gautam Ghose, Param and Raima, after watching a just OK "Baishe Srabon" I am really disappointed. Let me explain why ...
The story is quite simple, hunting a stone-man and serial killer by Kaw-Poo. A love triangle and an unsuccessful Poet get added into it with some element of surprise in the final scene. The plot have some similarity with a Christie novel which earlier also influenced Saradindu to come up with "Sajaru r Knata". But Overall a good story.
But then, I expected some thrill in this so called "Dark Musical Thriller" and I missed it badly. Musical part is fine, but the movie is neither dark nor a thriller. The first half of the movie was really promising with the built-up, but after the break it failed to live up to the expectations. The background music is just OK, which needed to play a big role in such murder mystery. The treatment in few scenes were excellent, e.g. Gautam Ghoshe at Circular Rail station near the River or Prosenjit's first screen appearance or the Abir-Raima_Gautam interview scene. In some place, it looked not so spontaneous. e.g. The Office scene with Abir-Raima and their boss. Prosenjit-Param drinking together... Really missed the depth in last scene which is supposed to be the climax of the movie, then the Prosenjit-Param chase scene which is also supposed to be a significant scene. I liked the use of poems, seemed to be a tribute to the rich history of Bengali poetry. Nibaron Chakraborty reminded me of Amol in "Coffee House".
If I ever stumble upon this movie again, I may watch it only for one person, Goutam Ghoshe. He gave such a mega performance as an actor after 28 years. I always believed that the Directors are always better actors. Goutam Ghoshe proved me right and Parambrata proved me wrong. Prosenjit did his part, I will not say splendid, because I watched "Unishe April", "Utsab" and of course "Autograph". Abir did well but Raima wasted.
One may watch it for once or wait for the DVD. 2.5/5
