Saptasur, the second Bengali film of the year has nothing new to offer by way of content though it is one of the major releases on Christmas. We see a new pair Nabin and Varsha (though she has acted in Love Story so can’t call her a debutant).The tale is like this-
Nil stays with his mother and Father Joseph outside Kolkata. He arrives in Kolkata to attend college and prepare for the boxing championship. He stays with Mohan, Father Joseph’s friend. He defeats the college champ, Raj (a ruffian) who is also a drug supplier planted there by Nil’s father which he is unaware of and even wins the heart of Preeti. .Nil lands in front of a car which was being driven by his father and is injured. He is taken to his father’s house where he sees his photo with his mother. He later gets to know about his father’s identity from his mother. Meanwhile Biresh, the manager of Nil’s father Surya Priya along with Raj decides to kill Nil. When Nil confronts his father, his mother and Father Joseph along with Mohon all land up there, but Father Joseph gets killed while trying to save Surya Priya.
There is nothing in this film which is worth mentioning. By ‘Saptasur’, we thought it would be a musical worth speaking of and it indeed boasts of an impressive lineup of singers including Bappida himself, but not one song is worth remembering and further more most of the songs were unnecessary in the film. Neither Nabin nor Varsha can act and she has not improved after Love Story. What was the use of taking Mohon Agashe? It was great to see the great man after years and the role was appropriate as well, but somehow he could not add anything to it.
