Well I must say that I have already watched it twice and I would still feel the thrill if I am asked for watching it again. Now question may arise that how can I feel the thrill after watching it twice. Yes, there only lies the magic of 'Baishe Srabon'.
I have come across certain people who have an objection with the 'obnoxious' slangs in the movie. But it is just the ketchup on the food without which the movie would have lost its taste. The 'city of joy' is struck with five murders in the space of just eight months. In each case there is found a paper with a verse of a dead poet(Sukumar Roy, Jibanananda Das, Binay Majumdar, Shakti Chattopadhyay and Sukanta Bhattacharya) written on it. Abhijit(played by Parambrata) is an efficient and young cop seeking for the truth agrees to take the guidance of Prabir,an ex-cop(played by Prasenjit) who has been suspended for torturing the prisoners. On the other hand, a channel is searching for a serial killer to take an interview for a special episode of their thriller-series. But the main cloth of thrill is weaved by Nibaran Chakraborty(played by Goutam Ghose), a mysterious poet who calls Rabindranath for publishing his poems and often roams about the streets of Kolkata at night.
The acting in the film was outstanding. Prasenjit is just getting better as the day is passing. Parambrata's character needed a smart yet emotional presentation and he passed the test with distinction. Goutam Ghose's performance was undoubtedly the X-factor of the movie. His elocution was also too good. Other actors like Raima, Abir, Anindya and Sumit played their part perfectly.
The most extra-ordinary aspect of 'Baishe Srabon' is its cinematography and editing. Soumik Haldar deserves a salute for his cinematography. Srijit has again proved that he will continue to gift good films to the Bengali audience. He has also mastered in the screenplay and the dialogues. The music and lyrics of Anupam Roy has already become a hit even before the release of the film. 'Ek bar bol' by Anupam himself and 'Gobhire Jao' by Rupankar specially makes an impact.
'Baishe Srabon' is not only a thriller. It also makes you emotionally involved with its poems and thoughts. Had it been just a thriller, it would have lost its repeat value. But at the end of the day, one must say that it is completely unique and another footstep to create another 'Golden Era' of Bengali Cinema.
