If you be want to be a successful Bengali film director, learn the lesson from Swapan Saha. It is only he who knows the tricks of the game and who can feel the pulse of the audience.
“Keno Kichhu Kotha Bolo Naa” is his latest commercial venture which gets applaud from the frame one till end of the 16th reel.
A few decades ago a film was made titles “Koshish” starring Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bhaduri. That film was well appreciated for it’s not only theme but the treatment also. But it was not a mass film. Both the principal characters were dumb. Swapan Saha has done “Keno Kichhu Kotha Bolo Naa” with the same theme but with a different style more closer to the mass and hence more commercially viable.
The storyline is very simple. Rajashri (Priyanka), a dumb and deaf girl falls in love with Somnath (Rahul) who is also dumb. But unlike “Koshish” here the contradiction lies in their class difference. Rajashri is the only daughter of a rich industrialist and Somnath is a petty hoarding painter.
In this film Swapan Saha seems more modern in his shot taking and editing. Even the treatment of the film is not like his earlier films. Here we found a new Swapan Saha who is fighting with the X-gen film directors of the Bangla film industry. The set, the props, the costumes are all unlike typical Bengali film.
Though, the basic storyline is taken from certain South Indian films, but all the credits goes to N. K Salil for its trans-creation in Bengali. His screenplay and dialogues are meant for the audience he usually caters.
Rahul and Priyanka have tried their best to portray dumb and deaf characters. But why they have not used sign language instead of half shouting is really very difficult to understand. It seems the film’s sound track has become too noisy for their unnecessarily half shouting. But they have proved they are hottest pair of the Bangla film industry these days.
Unlike “Chirodini Tume Je Amar” ends with a positive note where the two loving couples unite at the end of the film.
Jeet Ganguli’s music is not up to the mark. The only negative point of this film.
