    Ekti Tarar Khonje rating: 7 out of 10(Subhashis Biswas wrote on 30 Jun 2010)

    After much deliberation with which movie to watch in a weekday afternoon between "Rajneeti" and "Ekti Tarar Khonje", I chose the later one, as Rajneeti can wait. Read some reviews here and there about ETK, and decided that its worth giving a shot.

    As it turned out, it was worth giving a shot, but ...
    Yes, I left the cinema hall with a but in my mind, with some what ifs in my mind. The story line had lots of promises, but somehow I think it got caught in the middle between a "vision unconvensional" and "traditional semi-commercial". Some of the characters, the gangster group, the predictable-to-be role of Dhritiman were the weak link in the movie. Those characters played out something that we used to see in films, but they do not gel well with this movies plot.

    Sayan Munshi really looked great, but I would not say that about his acting. He still has some accent problems, bengali natural sound is not coming out of his mouth. Arpita looked good, though the ageing eye-lines were caught in the camera from some angles. Her role was important, and she did about 70% justice to the role.

    Rudranil's acting is again hackneyed. He need to change things. The cinematography was really god, the color mixings were treat to watch, sort of eliminated the feel-bad things during the dull moments of the movie. Music was okay, the hindi song just after the interval was not needed at all and it was irritating.

    Overall, its definitely worth a trip to the cinema hall, as this effort of "different" in bengali-cine culture should not go un-appreciated.
