At last distributor of Yash Chopra in Kolkata, Pritam Jalan becomes the director of a Bengali film titled “Trishna” which is 75% “ditto” copy of Bipasha-John starrer “Jism” – which Mr. Jalan has denied earlier.
Tiasha (Rituparna) is married but she has a past. She came to “Roychoudhury Home” as a nurse. And from that status she becomes one the major holder of the property. Aling with Tiasha’s husband Arindam Sil and his sister (Sudipa Basu). Only this portion of the storylune of the film is little bit of different then “Jism”. The rest is the same.
Tiasha had a plan to grab the earlier property, but she couldn’t find how to fulfill her plan. Then comes Raj (Anshuman) a Fashion Photographer, who falls into her trap.
Raj comes to Sundarpur, a sea resort for a shoot, God knows what. He, while roaming around the beach, find Tiasha. That’s the beginning of the falling into the trap. Tiasha starts luring Raj using her body, her charm and her mystique attitude. Raj fall so deep in her love that he starts miss-understanding his old schools pal who is accidentally the S.P of local police station (Lokesh Ghosh) and public prosecutor (Rana Mitra). The cop and the legal officer smells something odd for their photographer friend. They tried to stop Raj from mixing with Tiasha but they failed.
Now comes Sekhar into the picture who also understands the fishy relationship of his wife Tiasha with the photographer. Tiasha becomes successful in convincing Raj to kill her husband so that they live together. Raj kills Sekhar and disposed the deadbody into the sea. And then it is revealed that Tiasha had forged a false will of her husband wherein the huge property is endorsed in her name only.
Ultimately Raj was sent to jail for killing Sekhar, Tiasha fled away to Miami, US with the huge property.
What a poor story!!! And what a poor-poor film “Trishna” is !!!!!!! The entire film looks like a Tv soap with only mid-close and close shots. Anshuman has good physic, but he far from acting. Only Rituparna tries hard to save the film with her body charms but at the end of the day “Trishna” remains a amateur version of “Jism”. Pritam Jalan should understand there is a huge gap between distributing a film and making a film. One is business and the other is a craft, if not art.
