T.Sarkar Productions who have produced quite a few successful Bengali films in the past like Angshumaner Chhabi, the Feluda films by Sandip Roy,Ei Prithibi Tomar Aamar(by Swapan Saha), etc have produced ‘Hada Bhoda’ a rib tickling comedy generally suited for the very young audience starring Mithun and Aritra Dutta Banik(the host of the show Dance Bangla Dance which also brought Mithun and Aritra together for the first time and the director of DBD, Subhankar Chatterjee is also the director of ‘Hada Bhoda’). Aritra who has become the darling of the masses with his antics matches up more than expected to the Mahaguru and in fact manages to surpass him at times.
It is the tale of father and son Mridul and Sayan(also known as Hada and Bhoda, their respective names).Mridul, a clerk works hard to give his son a decent upbringing ,but his son Sayan, a spoilt kid and an extremely mischievous kind, an Indian ‘Dennis The Menace’ simply ruins his reputation. So much so that his principal serves him an ultimatum and gives 7 days to change himself, otherwise he would get a T.C. One day Sayan prays to his late mother to help him trade places with his father so that he could show the world of his capability. His mother grants him a wish for 7 days and they trade souls. Sayan becomes an excellent student and becomes a changed person while his father starts acting like a child and becomes a little ‘ferocious’ while in the office stunning his colleagues and his boss. All this happens right after interval so the pace of the film picks up a bit as before the interval things were dragging a bit. Mridul receives a call one day and comes to know his son has been kidnapped by Mashima’s nephew and his boss and colleagues who are all hand in hand.(an old lady who dotes on Mridul).When Mridul goes and encounters the goons, midway the clock strikes 12 and Mridul and Sayan become their old selves as it had become midnight and 7 days had passed. However Mridul rises to the occasion when his son is injured and beats the goons. Both father and son decide not to change themselves so they decide to remain as they are while both deciding to be good human beings.
Aritra who had made his debut in ‘Paran Jai Jaliya Re’and caught our attention with his one liners again excels in his first lead role in this film where he holds more than his own ground against the ‘Bengal Tiger’ Mithunda and surpasses him on many an occasion. In fact all youngsters should love this film and this film will make Aritra a real ‘child star’ and his fame will increase among the masses by leaps and bounds. Another child artiste Bittu, a very fat kid whom we had seen on DBD as well on Saurav Ganguly’s ‘Dadagiri ‘has his first major role in a film as well and he does exactly what is exactly expected of him-to create laughter.Mithun supports Aritra well and the music of this film suits the exact nature of this film.Sidhu (Cactus), Surajit (Bhoomi) appear at the very end of the film.Biswajit Chakrabarty as Mridul’s boss who speaks delightful ‘incorrect English’ is very good.
