‘Phande Poriya Boga Kande Re is expected to be a comedy or at least a love story with a name like that but surprisingly it turns out to quite a disappointment. Here the girl falls in love with the boy instead of the other way around!
The film is about two families who are at loggerheads over some issue. One is the family of Raju and the other of Misti.His father kills Misti’s uncle and Misti’s father kills his father. Both grow up and meet each other on a train when she is on her way back home after completing her studies and he on his way to reclaim some inherited property from the government.
He manages to land up at her place after running into her brother and father. Once they realize who he is, they want to bump him off, but there is one problem. They don’t do that within the four walls of their house, but they are unable to bring Raju out of the house as he understands their intentions and plays a cat and mouse game with them. He manages to create situation after situation where he doesn’t have to step out of the house. He even manages to get Misti ‘sort of engaged’ to Deep, her childhood friend. When he somehow manages to flee, Misti’s father and her brothers go after him and beat him up. That is when he realizes that she loves him when she declares her love for him. What was he thinking all this while? She even tries to commit suicide, but Raju saves her and her father and her brothers forget their animosity and hatred towards him.
The film is a complete different film from Soham-Srabanti’s last film together,’Amanush’ which was a psycho thriller and where Soham was brilliant. Over here he is good, but others are okay though TV actor Koushik Chakrabarty as Srabanti’s elder brother is quite good. Here we have a bicycle which even ‘talks’ (by way of funnyman Kanchan Mullick).The film has two music directors Jeet Ganguli and Samidh (for two songs), but none of the songs click. That includes Soham-Srabanti’s item number, ‘Coca Cola’ shot at Filmistan Studios, Mumbai which has the Munnis,Sheilas and other characters from hit item songs present in the song, but simply fails to make an impact which has been composed by Samidh.The climax of the film is quite dramatic, but quite strange as well. How does Raju not realize that Misti loves him till the very end? A couple of songs have supposedly been shot in Mauritius, but they are completely wasted.
