Calcutta is as much a star of the film as the actors.
12 October 2003 | by (Tucson, Az) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed Calcutta Mail from beginning to end but will have to agree with other viewers and critics that the songs, although very good, tend to bring the roller coaster ride of a film to a screeching halt. Meybe it was felt that the viewers needed to catch their breath since this is a very intense film that and, outside of the songs, never lets up. All the performances were excellent as was the story although, it is interesting that, as in Bichoo, Rani Mukherjee, plays a girl who looses her apartment and moves in with the hero.

The real star is Calcutta and how it is so beautifully photographed throughout the film and the sounds of Calcutta and everything in the film is perfectly realized.
