    Punascha is a serious film about the relationship between an elderly author and his old flame which hits the headlines one fine day when things goes all wrong. The lead roles of Animesh and Mohona are played by Soumitra Chatterjee and Rupa Ganguly. Animesh, an author decides to reunite with his flame after so many years one night after he rushes back from Delhi after receiving an award. However when he dies due to a heart attack in the middle of the night, hell breaks loose as everyone comes to know about the relationship and the media becomes involved as does Animesh’s wife, Banhi and Mohona’s daughter. Suddenly there is palpable tension all around and the daughter starts questioning the mother and blaming her for the incident as it has repercussions on her life as well.

    The film’s first half is centered on the relationship between Animesh and Mohona. Through their dinner table talk, the film tries to focus on the relationship of what could have and what could been had Animesh and Mohona come together. There is even a song sequence of Dol based where Rabindra Sangeet is being performed by a group in the form of an Antakshari against of Santiniketan thrown in as a sequence to realtor to the Vishwa Bharati connect. Soumitra Chatterjee and Rupa Ganguly don’t look too mismatched as a couple though one thinks perhaps she should been looking a little more older. Rupa Ganguly is excellent as Mohona, the lady who finds her happiness and her love after so many years, but only to lose it all within a few hours in a way which shatters her. Sayani Ghosh in a small role as Mohona’s daughter who initially goes against her is good. Credit must go to Angana Basu who again delivers as Animesh’s role and is very good and natural. There are a few things which go against the film. How does a daughter come to a forgone conclusion about the relationship between her mother and Animesh and go to her room and start singing a song with her friend? Did the intrusive neighbours-by this we mean the 3 ladies have to turn up to be friends with Mohona at that time? These are a few things which go against the film.

    The last scene of the film is again beautiful when Mohona and her daughter hug each other in the rain. It is a complete rejuvenation of the soul.
