Jeet with all his action mannerism is again back after “Wanted” in Rabi Kinagi’s “Josh”. This time his lady-love is Srabanti. The remaining team is the same. Music by Jeet Ganguly, editing by Rabi Ranjan Moitra. The only change this time is the villain- this time this responsibility is entrusted on Puneet Issaar, the famous “Coolie”-man, who was responsible for Amitabh’s deadly wound.
Indra (Jeet) is the student of an Engineering College in Kharagpur. He falls in love with Anu (Srabanti), sister of his class-mate, seeing only a DVD sent by the G.S. to his brother. Anu works in Singapore.
The film has three parts. The first is the time present, where Indra falls in love with Anu, decides to go along with his friend to their village Haveli only to meet his lady love and returns home with Anu on the day of aashirbad of his sister. Indra tells everybody that from that day Anu is going to live with his family. But one day in a bazaar after a lot of dhisum-dhisum Indra find that Anu is missing, and one of the passer-by informs him that a group of people has picked her up. He comes back home and tells everybody the story of Anu.
From here the second part starts in flash back. It starts from the day Indra reaches the village and meets Anu for the first time, and end in a long-stretched fight sequence between Anu’s elder brother Tapas Pal’s men and the local goon Puneet Issaar’s men. Tapas Pal here is for the maa-maati-maaush and the villain is opposing that. All people died, and Indra flees with Anu, after killing Puneet’s brother. Puneet is in town now to take revenge of his brother’s death. Flash Back ends here.
The ‘resolution’ part starts her and this is the third part - again in time present. This part ends in hero’s win and villain’s falls. Jet is quite good in this kind of macho-roles, probably the best in Bengali film. So “Josh” is his just cup of coffee. Srabanti had nothing to do, except being a beautiful prop in the midst of such a bloody-bath. Puneet is visually good. But the surprise package comes from the veteran Haradhan Banerjee, as the old man of the family. His drunken sequence is the best relief of this action packed drama.
