Z- Motion pictures latest Bengali release is “CHIROSATHI” by director Haranath Chakraborty starring Hiran and Koel Mallick.
Another love story this week again. Two weeks before Z-motion picture’s earlier film “Tomar Jonny” was also a love story and which failed miserable in the box office. That film was the debut film by Nilanjan. But this time Z-motion pictures had relied upon a veteran director like Haranath Chakraborty.
Haranath Chakraborty known that the success of a mainstream Bengali film lies in the tempo and pitch of the drama. So Haranath has entrusted this responsibility of high pitch melodrama to Dipankar Dey, who enacts the role of a rigid father who does not believe in love.
But her daughter Ria(Koel Mallick) falls in love with Raju (Hiran). Ria’s elder sister also fell in love with another young man. But the adamant father did not allow their marriage and so she committed suicide and the young man becomes lunatic.
But the problem of this film is its first half where we see Ria falling in love with Raju. And it happened in a college tour in the south India. And before that Ria’s father arrange her marriage with a young man enacted by Bhaswar. Ria’s would be husband deferred the marriage as per Ria’s wish, become she wanted to clear her graduation.
Till then all the characters were seemed one dimensional- either good or bad, no shades. Long 1 hour 20 minutes of the first half is eventless, and that is the main drawback of the film.
Everything happens in the second half. Raju comes to know that it was his elder brother who fell in love with Ria’s elder sister. Raju donates his blood to save Ria’s mother. Ria’s would be husband becomes clear to the audience that he is a drinker, womanizer and ultimately a villain.
Fire minister Pratim Chatterjee and Anamika Saha has enacted the roles of the father and mother of the would be husband of Ria.
Koel is as usual as in her other films. Since last one year she has enacted at least six times the same role she has played here. Hiran is still stiff like his earlier film “Bhalobasa Bhalobasa”.
The dialogues and the screenplay are not at par with Haranath’s standard. The songs are also not catchy.
