In Morning Walk the hero is the retired professor Mr. Joy Sen who after retirement and a peaceful life of staying alone at Kolkata decided to move to his son staying at Mumbai.The story reveals that he met Nilima at the college days but could not marry her due to his preoccupation of political activities.had his own family later but while meeting Nilima for the second time got intimate- the result of which having a daughter by her- which he did not know till he reached Mumbai to meet his son after retirement. The weakpoint of the story is this that Nilima and Joy did not have any communication during such a long time(say 20 years) till they met at Mumbai - in a park.
The story have sufficient Bengali touch- names-some scenes and the style of acting- specially of Sharmila Tagore. But the director Arup Dutta made an effort to give the songs and the disco dancing scenes to make it suitable as a Bollywood film.
Rajat Kapoor did well restrained acting and Diviya- projected a hyper sensitive Ad Film maker well. But her acting is little over- for her shattered dreames. the oter charecters were well matched, and Anupam Kher was real cool and natural througout the movie prooving his worth. Sharmila also did well to support him.
I liked the movie.It carries a message- that the young ones accept many more socially challanged things than those of the orthodox people of yester yesrs. It is happening these days and we are to see more social changes in the coming years.
