    Churir Pake Badha…

    As an admirer of the genre of filmdom, one feels that whether production houses like Surinder films or writers like N.K. Salil or directors like Sujit Mondal remain intertwined within their professional domain or surpass every known logic & legitimacy of celluloid polemics? Ingmar Bergman had explained, ’I don’t want faith. I want knowledge’. This quote becomes even more relevant today as governments of under-developed economies consciously thwart the downtrodden general masses from acquiring ‘knowledge’ or ‘health’, as these remain the 2 pillars upon which the enlightment of a human being can prosper, blossom & flourish in an aggrandized form. The bureaucracy not only consists of bureaucrats & senators but profit making business machineries as well. Thus when a film gets produced by Satyajit Ray in the 1960s, it remains a stark distinct phenomena from what Surinder Films ‘transcreates’ in 2009. What’s happening in the name of producing Bangla films is nothing but derogatory and disastrous. People like Sujit Mondal and N. K Salil are predators knowing nothing about the integral intricacies of film creation. They know how to fool the already tormented audience and squeeze business out from them by any means whatsoever. As a film “Saat Pake Bandha” remains as a 2hrs 15mins mayhem. With lavish artificial sets, artificial make-up, flummerous dialogues, thoroughly stolen screenplay (lifted from the Anil-Kajol starrer “Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain”), pedestrian camerawork and medieval concepts, this film pulls Bengal a step backwards into an abyss of darkness. It has become crystal clear that the Sujit Mondals and Anup Senguptas are not willing to study or bring forth the reality infront of the masses for their own vested interest. When Ray, Eisenstein, Stainslavsky or Bergman created a film they made it from their impulses; not for looting and bluffing the masses financially. What can these jerks be tagged as? Looters? Liars? Businessmen? Capitalist agents? Anything, but definitely not film makers. If Salil emphasizes with chutzpah that “serious films” don’t fetch profits, then it may be said that for more than four decades these “serious films” have enhanced the Bangla filmdom with relentless profits as well as the attainment of art (within scarce resources). Astonishingly this stolen venture romps in some innovative music. Jeet Ganguli flaunts his prowess in this domain compared to the other nincompoops behind the frame in this film. The song “Boro Eka Eka Lage Amar, Lagena Bhalo Aar…” is melodious and honestly withers in a breath of fresh air into the gagged auditorium. From the logistics point of view we discover that Rahul (Jeet) is being treated in an Intensive Cardiac Care Unit (ICCU) after a car accident! It’s also amazing as to how long this blatant copy-paste work would continue in the name of film making and stab Bangla culture in the long run. Kudos for the “Saat Pake Bandha” team! You are unquestionably a great bunch of “learned mavericks”!
