The video CD cover of Sapne Dekhe Rajkanya must be one of the most misleading covers ever to mislead people. Whoever would have thought that the three main names featured on the cover - Mithun, Jaya Prada & Kumar Sanu hardly feature in the entire film at all for a brief period of 5 mins each in different song in the film. It is in fact a new pain, Amtiabh & Usashi who are the lead pair of the film & even the mere mention along with the accompanying photographs of Mithun & Jaya Prada cannot save this film from being a disaster. This is the story of a young girl in rural Bengal think who wants to realise her dreams of becoming an actress to fulfil her father's dreams & also her own dreams as her father was an actor too. She too shown constantly trying to evaluate her idol, Jaya prada from childhood, which her mother is totally against & she tries to get her daughter married off to get some relief. Her cousin & her brother-in-law Ranjit Mallick take her away to Kolkata so that she can realise her dreams there. Over there she meets Somen, a struggling story writer for films known to her brother-in-law & she marries him actually to realise her own dreams. She comes across an evil film producer Nabin Sinha who shows her big dreams & tries to exploit her. Meanwhile Somen realises that Jhinuk has married him to save her & own purpose & there are a couple of other twist & turns. He is completely shattered & he tries to drown himself, but he is unsuccessful & is rescued by Minal Mukherjee, her father's friend. Jhunuk comes to know he has intended money from his father & decides to turn a film producer as he has a certain plan of his own. He disguises himself, names himself Mr.Rathore & produces a film which Jhunuk's acts in but his identity is kept a secret till the last. After earning a little name in the industry Jhunuk recieves the best actress aware for the film which Mr.Rathore is producing. Incidentally Somen Biswas also bags the award for best story for the same film, but since Somen & Mr.Rathod is the same person & he does not want to reveal his identity, Mr.Rathod accepts the award on behalf of Somen. After the function is over, Jhunuk goes to Mr.Rathod's residence to seek help from Rathod in locating Somen. After an indecent proposal given by Mr.Rathod. Jhinuk storms out of his house & it is at that juncture that Somen reveals his own identity & the couple are again united. The three big names must have been really close to the director or producer in order to lend their names to such a venture. The only bright spots in the film are when Jhinuk gets to share the stage with her idol Jaya Prada & also receives the best actress award from her after getting a foothold in the industry.
