Much Expected "Le Chakka" arrives at last. As it's a Raj Chakraborty-Dev Project, Excitement, Craze & Expectations were at the top. But I feel that, it could have been much better if screenplay & plot would've been a little more strong. From his debut, I'm observing that Raj Chakraborty has much talent his direction is also good, but he is not the best even he has the ability. Some scenes seemed unnecessary and it was felt that this scene would've been made much better. Dev's improvement will catch your eyes and Payel, as a PARA GIRL was fab. But did Le Chakka worked? Yes, but in parts.
Catchy Dialogues, Dev's Macho attitudes, Payel's PARA GIRL Tittudes, Awesome sequences of Sri Lanka shot wonderfully by Somak Mukherjee, Slapstick Comedy - These qualities charm the movie but on the other side, Some unnecessary scenes, A fair direction, a bit of unmethodical screenplay, extra pace and unimpressive plot let down the heads as well. It's not that this movie's bad but we wanted more. It's all the way Dev And Dev. His new trendy look, his attitudes, his playing, his dancing - everything charms us all the way.
PLOT - Dorjipara, a old-fashioned area in North Kolkata which has its own Team BULLET XI which is a disaster in itself. DOVERLANE DAREDEVILS, the mighty team from South Kolkata always beats BULLET XI. Suddenly, Abir(Dev) & his family arrives at Dorjipaara to live. This neighborhood is enemy of Abir because he is the best player of DOVERLANE DAREDEVILS. As time flies, Dorjipaara becomes peaceful for Abir when he finds his lady Love Rani(Payel). Two different Political Party holders, Mihir Babu & Sishir Babu tries to affect Dorjipaara in their area winning war. But, Abir Unites every man of Dorjipaara to fight against the harmful Politics happening then.
ACTING - It feels great to see Dev who is improving himself very fast. His every move is becoming charmer as we see him more. And anyways, Dev Madness is already everywhere in Bengal. It haunts me to think of Watching A Dev Movie First Day, First Show. Payel's Chulbuli attitude was very nice and his chemistry with Dev shows the magic again after "I Love You". The Rest Dorjipaara Team has done good but I missed Kanu(Partha)'s comedy. But one thing's for sure, many dialogues were censored many times. But, what to do? This film is also highly inspired from the youth, remembered PREM AAMAR?
MUSIC - Now comes the category which is very appraisal. The music by Indradeep Dasgupta was wonderful. Every song was outstanding especially the title track and Bindass Para. We will expect many superhit songs from him in the future.
DIRECTION - Raj da is very talented which we know from very early. His films always "Hatke" from the other films released at that time. But Le Chakka would've been his most fabulous work if he showed more skill. He could have handled some scenes better and honestly speaking, there was no need of the three romantic tracks for visualizing. It seemed unnecessary. Anyway, fingers crossed for "Dui Prithibi". Best Of Luck. Ebaare Fatie Dio.
VERDICT - LE CHAKKA doesn't let down our expectations anyway but the appetite's not full. Anyway, it was great to watch Dev hitting Sixes and bowl-ding every player in his front. Allover, Le Chakka will run successfully in the theatres for at least 50 days and after that, it may slow down. Recommended, especially for the new idea to come out in Tollywood.
