Two people come in contact with each other and also fall in love with each other. The hero doesn’t reveal his identity and conceals it initially, but later on the heroine comes to know that he has been doing so as he had killed his step-mother and father because his father had neglected his mother. Such is the story of a new Bengali film ‘Bindaas Prem’ which is not exactly a ‘Bindaas’ love story though it has a name like that, rather it is anything but bindaas.
The film has potential, but doesn’t quite exploit it. Also one guesses that it needed more credible actors or actresses to make it a better film. The reason why Rohit uses so many aliases while on the run is justified, but Rani is shown to be sort of obsessed with him which quite doesn’t work. Had they been shown to gradually fall in love , it would have been better but then the hero can not fall in love with anyone because he is beyond all that .Another character who is never shown, but we hear of him, a dreaded Maoist called Chakradhari is somewhat sidelined as he doesn’t get much prominence and he does not become an important figure and remains just a ‘passing phrase’ in the film.Megha who had acted in ‘Jor Jar Muluk Tar’ previously is okay.Mainak who had also acted in Mar Sangee before again acts in a tragic love story as the film results in a tragedy when the two lovers leap to their death when the cops are hot on their trail. He decides to improve his dancing skills, his smile and his acting though he has looked his part in this film. In any case he is a very unconventional looking guy.Swagatalakshmi Dasgupta, noted singer who makes her debut as an actress (yes, she does not sing at all) and tries to look very glam and mod as we have never seen her before, but the fact is she is just okay and we would rather hear Swagatalakshmi, the singer. Rajesh Sharma does not have much to do. The locations are quite interesting.
The film is definitely a little better than some recent films.
