My Rating

  • Prosenjit's Presence is the only Positive Point...

    Soldier rating: 4 out of 10(Chandi Mukherjee wrote on 08 Feb 2010)

    After watching the 140 minutes film by director Dulal Bhowmik, I am very confused from where to start. But, anyway, I am trying.
    Prosenjit’s name in the credit list came first, but he is there for only 4 minutes in the first 80 minutes of the film. Basically Soham dominates the first half with so many unknown artists. There are Arun Bandyopadhyay and Ramen Roychowdhury in small role also.
    The central theme of the film is the demand of Azad Kashmir by the Pakistan, and how a Bengali Brigadier Sabyasachi Sen (Prosenjit) spoils the plan of freeing a Pak-terrorist from the hands of the Indian military. The Pak-terrorist group in exchange were ready to release the four girls students and their teacher (Indrani Dutta), whom they took into their custody. The student and the teacher came to Kashmir for a study tour from Kolkata. In the student group there were a few boys too, one of them is Subhash Chandra Bose (Soham).The terrorist group only captured the girls and their Maam!!
    When the boys reported the incidence to a police officer in Kashmir, the muslim police officer gets an order from the ISI head to imprison there students and label them as Indian terrorist. Some Ratan Sen has written the story. Oooph!!!
    But the boys escaped from the jail and they joined the military camp-canteen as the canteen boys. Brigadier Sabyasachi sen seeing them easily understands that they are not their canteen boys, they are here for a mission. So, he starts giving them combat lessens regularly so that they become one day commando fighters.
    Brigadier Sen has his own story also. His wife (Sreelekha Mitra) and children were killed by the Pak-terrorist in a park while the whole family were singing a song.
    At the end both Subhash and his gang and Brigadier Sen board on a fighter plain and start their mission to rescue the lady teacher and her student from the hands of the Pak terrorists.
    And then the fight starts in a Rambo-fashion, But Tollywood style. Which end in the total-destroy of the Pakistani terrorist group and the release of the prisoners.
    The only positive point of the film is the presence of Prosenjit in the screen. As long as he is there, you will be at least able to tolerate this nonsense.
