    ‘Mejobabu’ or rather the title of the film is a little confusing because the posters suggested something else but there is a slight change in the storyline. Though the central character ‘Mejobabu’, the second officer-in-charge of the police station is shown to be someone who is honest and is ready to give people a second chance in life, the poster suggested that it would be a love story with its share of human elements. Considering that a new pair debutantes Deva and Nabamita (in fact her name along with her late grandfather is being used to promote the film) are the lead pair, it is nothing short of a shocker as the granddaughter of Mahanayak Uttam Kumar has only 15-20 minutes of screen time (including a song) and the number of scenes in which she features can be counted on a person’s fingertips.

    Deba, a young man turns into a thug and enters organized crime after his blind younger sister; his girlfriend and a reporter supportive of Deva are murdered by the local promoter’s goons when he refuses to sell his house to the promoter. He enters the bad world and engages in organized crime. He starts taking revenge by taking revenge against people who had ill-treated him or other people in general including the officer-in-charge of the police station. When he kidnaps the son of the O.C, the plan later backfires as one of his female accomplices along with ‘Mejobabu’ the second officer-in-charge of the station helps to return the boy to his parents. In an encounter, the O.C kills ‘Mejobabu’ thinking him to be hand in hand with Jiban without knowing he had helped to free his son from Jiban.Jiban and his men surrender in order to lead a decent life in the future.

    Nabamita is not capable of doing anything which should make enter the world of performing arts and for such a film to be released on her late grandfather’s death anniversary is nothing short of an insult to the late legend. She should try her hand at doing something else and the same goes for Deva who has neither the height, physique nor anything else to be a hero and is terrible. The songs are terrible (sung by the director/producer himself).However the same cant be said about the film as one has seen much worse C grade films so it is not so bad after all. The film begins by paying tribute to two legends of Tollywood-Mahanayak Uttam Kumar and producer/director Anjan Choudhury whose less famous daughter Rina incidentally appears in the film as Chhabi, the journalist supportive of Jiban.
