  • Paran Jaay Jaliya Re rating: 4 out of 10(Chandi Mukherjee wrote on 27 Jul 2009)

    “Namaste” Ravi Kinagi-ji for your latest venture “Poran Jaye Joliya Re” which is primarily shot in Kualalampur with its much seen Petronas Tower in background, but always referred as London in the film. Is it a “Namaste London” hangover Mr. Kinagi or you thought you would be able to fool the Bong audience? Must be that, and only for that Mr. Kinagi had designed even a football match in a small Malaysian Ground between “The British” and “The Indian”. Anyway, sir, audiences are much more intelligent than you thought while making a ditto copy of “Namaste London” in Kualalampur.

    The story line is also same like the original. Anna (Subhasree) is an NRI. Her father (Biswajit Chakraborty) and mother (Laboni Sarkar) are worried about her western thoughts and action. She has a fiancé also, his name of Harry.

    Anna’a father and mother take Anna to India to spend a few days during the Durga Pujas. There Anna meets Raj (Dev), a traditional young Bong.

    Anna’s father forces Anna to marry Raj because he finds him a suitable boy for his daughter. Anna sought her elder brother’s (Tota Roy Choudhury) advice, who was thrown out of the house by their father for marrying a foreign girl. Tota advices Subhasree to agree into the proposal, but let the poor boy Dev to come to their place and understand their milieu. So, Dev come to Kualalampur with Subhasree, Biswajit and Laboni. Reaching home, Anna refuses to marry Raj. And the Raj decides to win over Anna and ultimately he succeeds. This is the storyline of the both original and the copy.

    The film stands on two pillars. The first pillar is Dev, who has become the most popular hero of Bengali cinema within a span of just two years. He has been able to create a persona of a typical loveable Bengali boy, which Uttam Kumar created during the 1950s’.

    The second pillar is editing by Rabi Ranjan Moitra. Rabi has created a subtle pace with the body of the film which is very uncommon in typical commercial cinema.

    The innovative idea of choreography in the song sequence “Poran Jaye Joliya Re…” is also another uniqueness of the film.

    Apart from those things, there is nothing more entertaining in the film.
    One wonders why Aritra Banik and Rahul is there in the film? In fact what Aritra did in this film was absolutely to guard the faults of the director.

    The film has been opened with a big bang in the Box Office. But it is all due to presence of Dev, not because it is a copy of another hit film, “Namaste London”. So, the directors who are ready to make films with Dev can safely rely only on this handsome guy and his popularity factor, not on something else.
