    Oh!...Not again!!
    This was the short of a kid in an ad-film of a particular brand of bathroom accessories.
    Now after the release of half a dozen of love stories within a span of three months we have to short “Oh!....Not again!!
    This time the director is Raj Mukherjee and the name of his baby is “Love story”.
    The stories of all the recently released love stories are the same, at least the basic premise. A boy/girl meets a girl/boy and falls in love. They are of different status, and so their love is not authorized by the parent belong to higher status, but the lovers believe love is in much higher place than the parent and family. They become desperate. And then finally either they unite or separate (e.g. Chirodini……..Tumi je Aamar).
    Here the story centers round Saheb (Angshuman) and Nandini (Varsha) who were born in the same nursing home on the same day.
    When Saheb was six months old, he lost his father and mother in an accident. He was brought up by Pagla Baba, a “dome” in the burning ghat. Nandini was growing up in the world of love and care.
    They grew up and they falls in love after many incidents and then the interval comes.
    But as usual in the second half Nandini’s parent goes against this love as Saheb has no parental identity. So Nandini runs away from home and marries Saheb.
    There are two characters Shyamsundar (Tapas Pal) and Gajanan (Kharaj Mukhopadhyay). Shyamsundar brought Saheb from Pagla baba and handed over him to Gajanan to bring up Saheb, when Saheb was only eight.
    Anyway Saheb form a Bangla music band to earn money. What a way of earning? I forgot to tell Shyamsundar’s sister committed suicide as she was badly treated by Nandini’s uncle. Shyamsundar killed him and went to jail. This Shyamsundar came out of jail and again complication arises but here the film ends in union.
    Both Angshuman and Varsha in the lead role are beautiful to look at, but they have no acting talent. Tapas Pal is there for only ten minutes. Only Kharaj Mukhopadhyay has to pull the show.
    The music is loud. Editing in the first half is fast.
