Good film
10 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In the days when cinema was at the best known for it's nonsense, running around trees in the late 90's Partho Ghosh after the hit AGNISAKSHI(1996) returned with the same cast jackie, Nana and Manisha

The film is well made by Partho Ghosh

The film showcases human psyche and the film is brilliantly narrated and directed

There is not much running around trees and also the characters are well written

There are several brilliant scenes like the climax and many more featuring Nana

Direction by Partho Ghosh is brilliant Music is okay

Jackie is good in his role, in fact he has a meatier part then in AGNISAKSHI and he does full justice to it Strangely it's a role reversal from AGNISAKSHI(where Nana played the villain here Jackie is the villain) He leaves a huge impact in the last scene too Manisha Koirala is good in her part Nana is the scene stealer, the actor showcases his infinite range People accusing him of repeating himself should watch this film He plays a mentally unstable character with such flawlessness that he strikes you Ashvini Bhave is good in her part while Shivaji Satham is decent Mohan Joshi is okay
