Le Chakka Review
At last Much Awaited Film “Le Chaka” has hit the floor with which we have a lot of expectation, craze, and excitement as it is a Raj-Dev-Payel Project. So expectation is very high but I feel it could be much better if Screenplay and Plot is strong. It is not that the film is not good but as it is project of Raj Chakroborty so we have lots of expectation from him. I felt some of the scenes could be presented better. Or else Dev’s improvement as an actor and Payel’s Para girl avtar was fav.so will Le Chaka work? it will defiantly work but it will not be challenge or Prem Amar.
The story is basically about a North Kolkata’s Dargipara where people are living with their old tradition; they have their own cricket team also “11 Bullets” the team with 11 inefficient player who love cricket passionately but do not know how to play and they have been defeated by DOVERLANE DAREDEVILS where the captain of the team is Abir Bose(Dev) who has coincidentally come to live to this Para from South Kolkata and after that cultural clash between Ghati and Bengal has started between Abir and Rani(Payel) as well as other member of the same Para .But slowly slowly this clash between abir and rani make them closer and they fall in love each other. Then Abir also start liking the other inhabitant of the Para. But in the meantime two political parties wants to divide the Para for their political advantage .At this moment how Abir has use the cricket as a weapon to build the unity between Para members and trained them how to play cricket and how he has solved the problem that is story all about.
Catchy Dialouges, Dev,s Macho attitude,Payel’s Para Girl attitude ,comedy scenes between dev and Payel is awesome. The camerawork done by Somak Mukherjee is awesome .If Screenplay is little strong then the film will be the raj chakroborty’s best work ever.The 2nd half of the film is much catchy than the first half.
As per as performance is concern Dev is superb, his acting, diction everything is fabulous .He is the heartthrob of Bengal.Payel is the new diva of tollywood her chulbuli attitude, emotional scenes everything is outstanding. Her chemistry with Dev has shown the magic again after I Love You. Not only both of them but also all the characters has given their superb performance which is a strong point of the film.
The Music of the film is extraordinary ,hats off to Indradeep Dasgupta who has given this kind of superb songs where in every song there is a whistle and clap from audience I found.We expect a lot more hit from this man with magic of music.
Srilanka location and the song picturization as well as choreography is superb I do not have any word to say.
Raj da’s direction is superb why I am saying this because after giving three hits the attempts like le Chaka it’s really deserve a applaud because Le Chakka’subject is very new from all contemporary Bengali film and he has that guts to attempt is that’s really appreciating.
Overall Le Chaka is a good movie and if you asked me why you will see this movie then I will say three things:
1) The Subject
2) The Chemistry Between Dev and Payel
3) The Competitive permormance of Dev and Payel where o bole amay dekh e bole amay dekh.
