    Tujhe sab hai paata hai na maa?Yes, mom's can understand everything but things become worse when they try to intervene too much into her child's private life.It is not all pervading but we cannot deny the fact that it is definitely a problem which some are facing.Ichche,brilliantly showcases this problem.I was not so much interested about this film.But after watching it,i must say that everyone should watch Nandita Roy and Shibaprasad Mukherjee's latest venture.Not because of its didactic nature but to understand the psychology of a mother and her son and therefore the tag line which says 'aami aar aamar mayer galpo' is pretty apt.
    A middle class family where the mother(Sohini Sengupta) is very much concerned about her only son from his very childhood.She believes in competition,for her, "life is race,aage nahi bhago ge to koi tumhe kuchal ke aage nikal jayega".In order to get success in competition she exerts tremendous pressure on her child.The child gradually attains maturity.He(Samadarshi Dutta) was a bright boy and her mother took great pride in that.The boy falls in love with his tuition mate Debjani.As mom's can understand everything,Rana's mom got hold of some love letters.She was utterly annoyed and complains her husband regarding the 'indecent' words used in those letters.The relationship was nipped in the bud.Rana joins university and once again fell for a girl(Ruplekha).It continues and in the meantime his mother befriends Debjani's parents and her son was unaware of it.The movie took a sharp turn when one day Mamata(Sohini)invites Debjani and her parents to her place to celebrate Rana's birthday.She wanted Rana to marry Debjani.Rana revolts against his mother.Watch the movie to find out how that occurs.The ending was natural logical corollary to what had already taken place in that family.Here i would like to give credit to the directors.The way they concluded the movie is something to watch out for.
    Bratya Basu as Rana's father was awesome.There should be a difference between a dramatic performance and a cinematic performance,Bratya did that wonderfully.Sohini at times overacted but overall was good.Samadarshi was terrific.His performance was challenging and he gave his best.
    I would have loved to listen to some melodious tunes,therefore i was disappointed with its music but that's pardonable.If we overlook this negative aspect,the film stands out and becomes a must watch for all.I give it 3/5.
