The Invisible Man.............
Christmas Day brings us the release of three films in Tollywood-Saptashur, Krodh and lastly Rajdrohi. All these films have new pairs in the lead roles.
Rajdrohi is the story of Deep who decides to undergo the test of his late father, a scientist who had discovered a formula to make people invisible. Unknown to the world, his father had actually been kidnapped by Kulin Dhar, the Police Minister who had kidnapped his father in order to get hold of the formula and sell it abroad. No one had agreed to test the formula on themselves as it was risky so Deep undergoes that test and becomes invisible. He then discovers that he can’t become visible as the formula hasn’t been discovered. However he accidentally discovers that his father is still alive when Kulin Dhar kidnaps his mother and his father’s assistant. By this time his father has discovered a formula to make people visible again and so he becomes visible again. Kulin Dhar is arrested and everything returns to normal. He even gets to romance a girl called Raya whose life he had saved during a bank robbery.
Anshuman can’t be called a debutant as he had appeared in the Bengali version of Jism called ‘Trishna’ costarring Rituparna. He has not improved on his acting skills a he is not capable of doing so, but he may have improved his body further and so he is better than the rest. Neither the actresses are nothing much to look at nor can they act. The most significant thing about the film which might catch the attention of the viewers is the storyline. It gets better right before the interval and later when Deep becomes invisible. Now this is something which is absolutely new in Bengal film and has been shown well at least by Bengal film standards. That is definitely the USP of the film as the masses will go to see just that if not anything else. Rajatava Dutta as Kulin Dhar is quite okay although his antics at most of the times do not befit a minister.
