A Few from Tollywood, one from Bollywood, a few from Bhojpuri films, one from Bangladesh – this is the cast-design of “Maryada”, a Bengali film, shot 60% in London(as claimed), directed by Tanmoy Sengupta, only God knows who he is.
The film starts in Benaras where film is being shot. Director says action……….Rituparna Sengupta and Firdous starts dancing in Nalban, Kolkata. If you think they are the main characters in the films, you are wrong, they appear only in a 3-minutes dance-song sequence which has no bearing with the main story. Similarly Subhasish Mukherjee is also there with two-other Tolly artists – have their own story which is completely disconnected with the main story. Only Tolly’s Mrinal Mukherjee, in a role of corrupt MLA has little connectivity with the story of “Maryada”.
Jogdip (of Bollywood) is there in a small role – only he knows why he agree to do this kind of role in a Bengali film.
“Maryada” is basically a story of Kishen and Kajal who live in Benaras. They are small time thieves. Kishen steal a suitcase of an old woman in Benaras railway station. But later Kishen decides to do some good deeds. He finds that old woman and brings her in their house. They come to know that the old lady has come from Kolkata to Benaras to meet his two sons.
Kishen comes to know that both the sons has left for London. So Kishen, Kajal and the old lady come to London where they meet Jagdip who reaches them to the son Abinash. Seeing her mother-in-law with two unknown persons, the wife of Abinash gets irritated, but Abinash tells his wife to utilize his mother as their maid servant. Then comes the second son who also wants her mother to become their maid servant. Seeing this Kishen and Kajal decides to take the old woman in their own custody. Jagdip gives them support. Now the four starts playing game with the two sons and their mentor JK. They decide to give them a good lesson as they are unable to give proper “Maryada” to their own mother.
The film is full of vulgar dance numbers and more than vulgar comic scenes, unattached to the main story.
