TAKKAR - haar manbe Swapan Babur Ahankar.
Swapan Saha, N.K Salil and Zee Motion Pictures (for the maiden time) offer "TAKKAR" to the psychologically crippled and starved audiences of Bengal. Needless to say that this food is stale and hence the starvation shall continue. What "TAKKAR" says on 18th July 2008 has been spoken a hundred times before. This was also the gala launchpad of Rishi and hence some words are required to evaluate him. Rishi is nothing but a big flesh. His inablity to speak Bengali in a proper diction and modulation makes his acting all more horrifying througout the film. Swapan Saha and N. K Salil has given him dialogues which looks to give him serious goosebumps throughout the 2hr 40mins drama. Prosenjit looks good with an added moustache. Rachana Banerjee gives a watchable performance according to her stardards. The rest of the cast have nothing to do but sout and yell infront of the pedestrian camera work of P. Debraj. The only posotive in this film is the performance of the second debutant Bhashwar Chatterjee. This talented young small screen actor gives a sensetive performance in this baffling breathless biopic. The songs are nothing but stop gap measurements. Gautam Susmit paints some forgettable and painful sentences. But the painfull of all is the action of Mr. Judo Ramu. What this Chennai man has done is equal to ridiculous comedy or perhaps some broken montage in camera work! Naturally audiences getting into the theatrers with a voyeuristic attitude. But samaritans like Swapan Saha might turn voyerurism into an inherent part of the Bengal suburban life! TAKKAR fails. And it fails miserably. The story could have been bearable even if it concentrated and work more on the uncle-nephew relationship. Instead Swapan babu makes the characters frown and widen their eyes in anger and rage through the entire bioscope. TAKKAR will hence remain as Swapan Saha's "haar manbe ahankar"
