Proud to be a Nababarsha [Bengali New Year] release, LEY HALUA LEY is a Bengali adaption of a Hindi Hugely Successful Comic Flick "Hungama" by Priyadarshan which is also an adaption of Malayalam Superhit "Poochakkoru Mookkuthi" which was also written & directed by Priyadarshan, the most liked director of Comedy Movies in Tollywood [South India] & Bollywood. LEY HALUA LEY is a scene-to-scene, dialogue-to-dialogue, character-to-character remake of HUNGAMA(2003) and as HUNGAMA was a supremely fantastic & funny flick, LEY HALUA LEY is thoroughly enjoyable and has enormous elements of jest.
Set in Kolkata, LEY HALUA LEY is a comedy of errors featuring enormous characters in confusion & distress. Where three young people in city Kolkata, Subho [Hiraan Chatterjee], Sonali [Payel Sarkar] & Rahul [Soham Chatterjee] are having a confusing Love Triangle between them, Haradhan Banerjee [Mithun Chakraborty] & his wife Sonali [Laboni Sarkar] come to the city to add to the troubles. The confusion between the two Sonalis takes the story to an extinct and makes a mind-smashing rumpus. Sona Da MLA [Rajatava Dutta], Horegobindo [Kharaj Mukherjee], Kanchan Mullick, Locket Chatterjee, Shantilal Mukherjee, Aritro Banik, Subhasish - LEY HALUA LEY is a funny chaos which is actually transformed into a comedy of muss.
Raja Chanda [Director Of TARGET(2010)] makes an earnest effort to take such a beautiful comic masterpiece to give it a Bengali mien. Kumud Verma & Murli Y Krishna's cinematography in capturing Bangkok was top notch. Screenplay & Dialogues by N.K. Salil is nothing new, just the translation from Hindi to Bengali. Rabiranjan Moitras editing works well. Most Of All, Jeet Ganguly's music works yet again. Four Tracks from the movie work wonders even based in the same situations from the Hindi movie. Lyrics by Raja Chanda works. Jeet Ganguly, Bappi Lahiri, Priyanka Vaidya, Kunal Ganjawala, Monali Thakur, Mohit Chauhan & Shreya Ghoshal - Just see the big names behind the music of this movie. Do yourself a favor, buy the music CD of this movie.
Mithun Chakraborty was superfine I must say. Though he was not as perfect and funny as Paresh Rawal in HUNGAMA but Mithun da was perfect in his Individuality. Laboni's role was also very fun-oriented but I don't think she did as well as Shoma Anand. Hiraan was fantastic in his side role. So was Soham. Payel Sarkar carried out herself very flawlessly. Aritro is a champion. Subhasish was extremely good. Kanchan Mullick was outstandingly hilarious. Rajatava Dutta was amusing. Kharaj was amazing. Shantilal and others were fine in their roles. Moreover, if a person is in touch with Bengali movies and serials then every character of LEY HALUA LEY is known to him.
On the whole, LEY HALUA LEY is a surprise in commercial Bengali movies and I must say the best chaotic funny Bengali movie ever arrived. With so much confusion and distress in characters & the script, LEY HALUA LEY is sure to put big laughs in everyone's mouth. So, if you are willing to have a great time this NABABARSHA then watch LEY HALUA LEY surely.
