Swapan Saha probably for the first time has done a tragedy. At the end of his latest Ei Prithibi Tomar Amar both the hero and heroine commits suicide.
Latest entry to the Tollywood stable is Abhiraj who is playing the lead role Shibu in this film. Before this Swapan Saha has tried with Abhiraj in he television mega-serial Ei Ghar Ei Sansar, where he has come to confidence of this veteran director. Swapan Saha wanted a new face which is very simple and Abhiraj properly fits into the trill. Though he smiles sweetly, his acting capability is still doubtful.
N. K. Salil has written the story and the screenplay-dialogue of this film. But after a long time he seems very shaky and directionless. He failed to generate any king of this story curiosity for the first 2 hours of this 2 1/2 hours long film.
Shibu a toy seller loses his mother in the first 5minutes. After the cremation of his he saved Poornima (Priyanka) from the hands of two truck drivers and he comes to know she is an orphan and stays in a home. In the 10th minute of the film both Shibu and Poornima becomes homeless.
And it continues till the 120th minute of the film, with little bit of ‘dhishum dhishum’, bang-bang and song dance sequence in their dreams. No real story till at that point, so no tension amongst the viewers. But thank God, Swapan is an intelligent director; he understood it and he managed it with Rudranil Ghosh. Rudranil plays the role of Mama. It is only for him this film is watchable throughout.
Mama is the character who stretched his helping hand towards this couple. Mama has a connection with the underworld and so he places simpleton Shibu in that gang for living.
And that brings the ultimate tragedy in the couple’s life. Police thinks Shibu is one the gang members and they request Poornima to bring his down. Poornima doesn’t believe the police, and hence she takes the decision of committing suicide.
The last 30 minutes have some tension and the unexpected tragic end make the film a little bit interesting.
There is music but without any effect. Cinematography is very general, even failed to capture the beauty of North Bengal. Only Shibu-Poornima’s temporary residence is a deserted but are beautifully illuminated both in day and night sequences.
