Ace Director Swapan Saha shows hope yet disappoints in his current film Ei Prithibi Tomar Aamar, a tale of two star-crossed lovers which ends in a tragedy starring newcomers Avijoy and Priyanka Sarkar(though she has already starred in one of the biggest hits of last year Chirodini Tumi Je Aamar). It is the story of two people from two diverse backgrounds whose fate brings them together and makes them lovers and they decide to end their lives together in order to remain united even after death. The character of Shibu is new and interesting and more so because of the performance of newcomer Avijoy.Swapan Saha who has made several hit films in the past with Prasenjit & Rituparna( Prasenjit being his favourite hero) has made a film with a completely new film with a fresh pair. It is the tale of an illiterate hawker who saves the life Purnima, a girl from goons. A contact Mama, a tout in the Motor Vehicles Dept helps them rebuild their life and initially helps them financially too.Shibu slowly starts falling in love with Purnima (at one time even gets beaten up without protesting as he had accepted money to pay for Purnima’s exam fees).He gets involved in bad company and there follows a cat and mouse game with the cops who misunderstand him. One of the members of Bobby’s gang eyes Purnima and becomes obsessed with Purnima, but Shibu puts an end to his advances. Bobby confronts Shibu regarding this matter and is injured by Shibu.He is admitted to a hospital. Bobby’s elder brother vows to finish off Shibu if Bobby dies. Bobby’s elder brother comes to know that Bobby is dead although it is not Shibu, but a nurse at the hospital (her husband was murdered by Bobby) who has killed him. The cops also think that Shibu has killed Bobby. They tell Purnima that if she bring hims to them, they would see that he would get minimum punishment and no harm would come to him.Shibu comes home to Purnima but both of them commit suicide although the police had surrounded their house from all sides.
The storyline might lack a little sense at times, but is the it becomes more credible due to the performance of the lead pair especially Avijoy as Shibu.His role as the illiterate hawker is simply marvelous and he excels in his first role. Though he is of medium built, yet he is quite convincing in the action sequences as well. The songs of this film might be a little hyped as Swapan Saha might be trying to promote this film as a musical tragedy, but it is just okay. The main support of this film is Rudranil Ghosh as Mama, the tout of the Motor Vehicle Dept who becomes Shibu’s friend, philosopher and guide and helps them through their crisis. Dire circumstances had made to be what he had become and he is simply brilliant, Nowadays he is being seen in a couple of films and one hopes to see much more of him in the future as he is a brilliant actor. The storyline gets a little melodramatic at the end which wasn’t necessary and the songs look out of place in that setup if we go by logic, nevertheless it might be a success.
