Gautam Chandra Halder apart from directing has written the story, screenplay of latest Bengali release “Tumi Kar”. It is very difficult to say what the writer wants to mean by “Tumi” of the title. Whether, he has meant the leading lady of the film, or something else – is unanswered even after the last frame of the film is shown.
The film is set in a village named Madhabpur. The story focuses on the age ole tale of villagers hounded by land sharks.
The local MLA Shanti Ranjan Burman (Dipak De) is not only a corrupt man but also a crook. He forcefully confiscates the lands and properties of the downtrodden mans in the name of industrialization and development. Are you getting any hint of Singur or Nandigram. Don’t worry, director Gautam Chandra Halder is a very wise man –he not that fool to be caught in that trap. So the next moment he forgets the industrialization issue and brings down Adam and Eve from the heaven is disguise of Deb Choudhury (Amitabha Bhattcharya) and Chandra Roy (Rimjhim). As you have not seen the film, you may wonder who the hell they are.
Shanti Ranjan Burman with the help of his sidekick Raghab (Rajesh Sharma) and his goons targets Chandra Roy and her grand-mom for engulfing their land. Don’t ask for industrialization their why their land is required – I simply don’t know. I only find that immediately after this enter the scene honest S. P Mr. Dibakar Choudhury, Arjun Chakraborty and his brother Dev.
Dev falls in love with Chandra. The two took oath to uproot the corrupt Shanti Ranjan and Raghab alongside the villainous inspector Binay Bagchi. Dev, Dibakar and Chandra find able allies in sub-inspector Pundarikakshya Das (Subhashish Mukherjee) and Joy Banerjee. This Joy is an interesting character in the storyline. He is a real estate dealer but turns to a revolutionary. What a balance!!
So, the two sides are well set for the final battle. After an encounter (it seemed very silly with false arms) S. P Dibakar and Shanti Ranjan dies. Peace is restored at Madhabpur. Thank god, in his storyline Gautam Chandra Halder never tried to incorporate really. Ooops!!!
