To begin with, Kaushik Ganuguly's "Laptop" deals with a character that is not human, that is not a frame of bones, flesh and blood. The protagonist is the electrical gadget that enters lives of people and destroys them. Obviously, an innovative concept. I won't spend much time in describing the plot as it has been done already, a number of times.
Plus Points: 1) Direction: Ganguly's direction is undoubtedly fabulous. Particularly that scene where the milk dissolving in the cup of liquor tea has been portrayed as the image of an overcast sky.
2) Content: Of course there's novelty and the rich content has helped in drawing audiences.
3) Music: INCREDIBLE!
4) Acting: It has been blessed with sincere performances from almost all the cast. Specially conspicuous are Ananya Chatterjee, Churni Ganguly, Saswata Chatterjee, Pijush Mukherjee, Arindam Sil and Rahul Bose. Of course, Kaushik's acting of a blind man is splendid.
Minus points: 1)Gaurav and Ridhima's love could have been given more space. It was almost superficial. Well, today, all parallel films have got this style of superficiality.
2) Loopholes in the subject matter like Kaushik's walking along a road (mind! He's blind!) without any assistance (but the stick), Kaushik's accepting the laptop in spite of knowing it belongs to someone else and the scenes where Rahul was suddenly described as an imposter have not been well-dealt.
3) Too stuffy! Humour, well, practically nil!
4) Pace could have been faster. Crisp editing would have prevented some yawns in spectators.
