Sometimes small films are released which don’t have any leading names and yet they turn out to be more or less decent films at least in comparison to other recent films.
‘Tomake Chai’ is one such film where you don’t know how to react and turns out to be an okay film.
The film features only names like Sudip Mukherjee, Dulal Lahiri and Biswajit Chakrabarty and practically no other leading names. It is about two politicians who are at loggerheads with each other. While Bikash is honest, idealistic and respected, his rival Nagen is corrupt, scheming and will not even stop to finish his son even if his rival has saved his son’s life.Bikash is even attacked by Nagen’s men one day where Nagen is present and a channel which happens to be present on the spot and captures it and later on even his son goes against him. With all this, there is another sub plot in the film which becomes quite a major plot towards the end regarding the marriage of the sister of Amit (Bikash’s P.A) whose sister gets married to the son of a wealthy businessman only after Bikash intervenes and there is heavy drama centered around it.Bikash even manages to locate his beloved Jaya for his mother and gets married at the same time with Amit’s sister.
Though the film is being shown at a North Kolkata theatre where the audio system is pathetic, the film is okay because largely because of the performances of the two leading actors Sudip Mukherjee and Dulal Lahiri especially Sudip.He is excellent as Bikash and god knows why he doesn’t get more chances to perform on the big screen. The others have done their job, but Kanchan is simply terrible and irritating. The songs are not great though the line up of singers are impressive. The film is definitely a little different.
