Saathi Aamar Bondhu Aamar is the debut film of Anindya Sarkar as a director and also debut of lead pair Surya and Shinjini. Do you remember Shinjini? She is the same girl who became new a before being critically ill after being eliminated from the floor of a television dance reality show.
As a television serial director Anindya was successful, but in his very first film he seems a little bit confused. He has to understand that only teen-age love story is not enough for success. He has to understand why “Challenge” by Raaj Chakraborty succeeded. I have mentioned Raaj’s “Challenge” only because Saathi Aamar Bondhu Aamar also has the almost same storyline which starts in a college campus. Here Surya does film stunts for his earning and there Dev did bar-dancing. But Anindya ends his film in “Romeo-Juliet”s’ Indian version “QSQT” style because both of the lead pair dies. Even this tragic end does not seem enough to survive that a tragedy is baseless it doesn’t sell at all.
Doll (Shinjini) is the daughter of a very-very rich industrialish (Sabyasachi Chakraborty) who believes in only ‘masti’ and does it everywhere in the college campus. Her mother (Rita Koyral) always speaks wrong English with wrong pronunciation, and her father always corrects her.
Doll falls in love with Raja (Surya) who is very-very poor, stays alone in a ‘basti’ and does stunt job in Bangla cinema for his earnings.
Doll’s mother wants her daughter to be married to an executive officer, who sings “I am a bad guy” in a shanty joint with a dozen half dressed girls at 1:30 in the morning.
Due to some “hilarious” misunderstandings Doll decides to leave Raja and marry to the ‘executive officer’ suggested by her mom. And very predictably that ‘bad man’ stats torturing Doll after marriage.
Doll decided to leave that man and accidentally (in a very funny way) meets Raja, who now is a courier delivery man.
Goons arranged by Doll’s husbands kills Raja and seeing the dead body of Raja Doll commit suicide, but before that he took the hanky from his husband’s pocket and wiped her ‘sindoor’. What an imaginative end!!!
A better advice to Anindya: why don’t you start a new television serial insead of making awful films??
