After “Chirodini Tumu Je Amar…” and “Challenge”, director Raj Chakraborty’s next film is “Prem Amar”. The story of “Prem Amar” is a little different from the above mentioned films because here a poor boy loves a poor girl (though the girl was rich once upon a time). The poor boy Rabi appears and fails in every Higher Secondary examination, he plays carom and teases girls with his friends and apart from that does basically nothing. A new family comes to live in the colony. Rabi falls in love with Riya, the young girl of the family. Riya’s parents want her to get married to Rajiv, a rich fellow who supports their family by paying electricity bills and huge bank interests every month. After a lot of dramas and actions Riya finally feels that she also loves Rabi. So she plays a true inspiration in Rabi’s life and changes his life. He gets a job in a bike showroom and his relation with his family improves. Rabi manages his friend’s empty flat and brings Riya there. But unfortunately Riya’s mother saw them. Angry mother tell Riya to discontinue her relation with Rabi. To separate the love birds Rajiv arranges another house for Riya’s family and they secretly shift there. One night Riya manages to meet Rabi and spends that night with him. The next morning she tells Rabi that she will marry Rajiv to save her family from starvation. Being angry Rabi tells Riya to leave and unfortunately Riya faces an accident and dies on the spot. When Rabi goes to save her, he also gets injured. After being released from hospital Rabi takes several attempts to commit suicide but fails every time.
Then, Riya’s soul appears before him to make him understand the value of his life… and after shedding lots of tears Rabi finally sheds the idea to commit suicide.
Director Raj Chakraborty has brilliantly his previous films’ hit songs in this film. The hero sings “pante taali…” with his friends and goes to see “Challenge”. The dialogues by Abhimanyu are ordinary. Music by Jeet Ganguli has followed his typical style. Kumud Verma’s camerawork is something positive in the film. Choreographer Shankariya and Baba Jadav have done their jobs well. Action master Judo-Ramu must try something new, because all his stunts are just the same in every film.
Soham as Rabi and Payel as Riya are convincing. Biswajit Chakraborty as Payel’s paralyzed father had noting to do. Laboni Sarkar has portrayed a helpless mother. Little Tathoi has nothing more to do so she cried a lot. When the film started Soham was surrounded with his friends but as the film proceeds the friends disappeared one by one.
Director Raj Chakraborty has shown a new dimension to our dying Bengali film industry. He has been gifting super hit film one by one. Now we are looking forward for his next film which can be about how a very rich boy will fall in love with a rich girl and after a lot of songs, dramas and action, this time the boy will die and the girl will go mad.
