‘Krodh’-War for Justice introduces a new pair as like the other films on Christmas, but it is little different from the rest and is not essentially a love story. Much of it is like a thriller rather than anything else. The love story of Soham and Diya (Debutantes Sujoy and Diya respectively) hardly gets any prominence in the film and essentially just a backdrop to the actual story of Rahul, who is looking to take revenge against his tyrant father who had deserted him and sold his mother to a person when he was young. After getting hit, he lands up the mental home run by his step brother Soham. He recognizes his father at the annual function of the home and even attempts to take his life a couple of times. After he again gets hit on the head, he goes undergoes electric shocks and regains his memory. Meanwhile Soham and his mother come to know the truth and his step mother asks him not to kill Binayak. There is an altercation in which the Forest Ranger gets killed. Rahul decides to forgive his father for his stepmother’s sake, But Binayak decides to kill Rahul. Just when he is about to shoots Rahul, his younger son Soham shoots him instead. Rahul takes the blame on himself and goes to jail. He is reunited with his family after a couple of years.
It is basically a revenge tale with two love stories as the backdrop-Rahul and Kajal and Soham and Riya neither of which gets prominence in the film. It is a different revenge story as here as the son is out here to take revenge against his tyrant father rather than anyone else. Though the new pair is there, it is needless to say that the show thoroughly belongs to Jishu and he has got the maximum prominence. It has not been a usual role for him and he has had to change himself a bit for the role. Jishu has come back well after a while with this film at least as far as commercial films are concerned. Rajatava Dutta as Binayak Choudhury as usual is good and has looked ruthless and Mrinal Mukherjee as Forest Ranger Mahalingam is good as well. Indrajit in his guest appearance as Diya’s brother and an officer investigating Binayak’s case is okay. There are a couple of missing links as well-for e.g. how does Rahul manage to trace Binayak’s whereabouts so easily? What was in Rahul’s bag that was so precious? Swarnakamal is okay and the new pair specially Priyadarshini doesn’t have much to do. Sujoy as Soham is passable, but the best part is that he has a striking uncanny resemblance with our Indian cricket captain, M.S.Dhoni.
