After twenty years living abroad, Padmini Choudhury, an actress-turned-producer, returns to India to make a film with her director husband Sambit Roy. Journalist Mallika Sen reports on the first day filming celebration, and accompanies actress Kakoli home to conduct an interview. Arriving home, Kakoli becomes violently ill and passes away. The police discover that Kakoli was poisoned earlier that day, and everyone from the "Shubho Mahurat" celebration becomes a suspect. Mallika investigates the case, but it is her perceptive aunt, Ranga Pishima, who puts the clues together. Written by L. Hamre

An actually good Bengali film
28 June 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In the current era of Bengali cinema, where often the average wit required to endure a 3 hour torture is less than a 3 year old's, this Rituporno whodunit comes as a fragrant zephyr. In fact, unlike some other critically acclaimed movies made by Rituporno (like Raincoat), this one is well-paced, and holds the audience till the very end.

Granted it is taken from the Miss Marple story 'The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side'. But for someone who has NOT read Agatha Christie to a great extent, this will truly be worth the ticket. Again, for the ones like us, who have been die-hard Christie fans since our teens, we should know pretty well how difficult it is to make a screenplay out of a Christie novel. Simple b'cos her stories have the psychological treatment much more than actual actions. This is where Rituporno excels. He has got a fantastic script, acted out by brilliant actors, and what we get in the end is a true treat.

A very good Bengali film after a L-O-N-G time.
