Another Uttam Kumar and Suchitra classic
9 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shapmochan is another Uttam Suchitra classic. Uttam Kumar plays Mahendra who is of a musicians family has a very good voice and other musical skills bit cannot practice music because of curse from a guru to one of his ancestors for insulting the guru. Being very poor Mahendra goes to Calcutta and stays with their Family friend Umesh Chandra whose daughter Madhuri takes care of Mahendra. The chemistry between Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar is perfect and all the interactions between the two, with Suchitra Sen helping Uttam Kumar to learn the etiquette of the rich and wealthy in the city which gradually developed into a romance. Pahadi Sanyal as brother Devendra played very well the role of Mahendra's blind brother and Kamal Mitra as Umesh Chandra did his role admirably. The movie has some beautiful songs by Hemanta Mukherjee and couple of classical songs. The entire movie is all Suchitra Sen with her excellent portrayal of Madhuri and the determination to eliminate the curse and inspiring Uttam Kumar to pursue his musical career. It is an excellent movie with Uttam Suchitra pair with a strong story line and good acting by some of the stalwarts of the Bengali films.
