Recipe for an insane
It can be presumed or assumed that people with sanity make films and people with sanity go to watch them. But after viewing "Ghar Jamai's" first day first show a normal person may easily loose his sanity. It's also surprising and alarming that a how come such a huge number of people (perhaps insane) were cheering and clapping with every "out of the universe" dialogues of this movie. Anup Sengupta may be given a special condolence for creating this "Insane extravaganza". What a pity! The future of Bangali movies rest on the shoulders of these visionary film makers. Forget screenplay, direction and camera works, thew movie itself lacks in sanity and continuity. It may also be emphasized that as there is no sanity there isn't any continuity vice versa. The film (if it can be called) takes us the same old world of estranged siblings, long lost friedns and powdery villians. The mojor points one can highlight in this film is "make up". The profiles of every actor in this film looks more white than a mine actor. Anamika Saha leads the pack looking like a white beast while the rest follow her footsteps. The performances are "unique", "unique" in every sense. The mannerisms are baffling. The songs are equally pedestrian but some how Babul Supriyo's "ke guru ke chela..." in audible. What's most surprising is the inclusion of Piya Sengupta in one of the lead roles. The monstrous, obese shape of the woman makes the camera lense weep and so does the audience. The way she shakes her buttocks and bossoms one may be convinced of the down fall of the level of Bengali actresses of late. The most annoying and alarming fact is that audiances from the lower stratum of the society were enjoying the movie with their stunted intellect. The way these directors have planfully degerating and demoralising the I-Q level of the rural audience has been really painstacking to witness and acknowledge. "Ghar Jamai" had nothing to offer except night mares about the crumbling future of the Bangla movie standard. If this is what Anup Sengupta and Manjil Banerjee has to offer Bengal they must be judging spectators to be insane or perhaps they are themselves insane enough to think and presume that people will enjoy these movies (?).
