Storyline

Kolkata-based Sheela Bhowmik feels isolated and neglected, and decides to leave her busy film-maker husband, Raja, to spend sometime with her friend, Renu, her mom, and then subsequently travels to Kashmir to spend some time by herself. Raja gets involved in a new movie depicting the life of Gautam Buddh, and is on the look-out for a male child to play the character. He does find one, a young school-going lad, Abhirup Mitra; introduces him to the Producer, Vikram; as well as other crew including beautiful Anjali, who has a crush on Raja. Neither Vikram, Anjali nor any of the crew are aware that Raja is the prime suspect in the abduction of Abhirup. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Good watch
13 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie springs a real surprise in many ways, the film is a departure from director Rituparno Ghosh's pet subjects which generally revolves around a lead female protagonist with intense,passionate drama unfolding but here its a film on a male protagonist, an idealist filmmaker Raja(Prasenjit Chatterjee) and his quest to cast and than to make a film with a boy whom he thinks is perfect for the role and the subject is dealt in a lighthearted way bordering on humour.Abirup the boy(Akashneel Dutt) and Raja the director develop a heart warming bond from the time they first meet through the making of the film.

Meanwhile as flashbacks(of Raja) comes in the personnel life of Raja and his wife Sheela(Manisha Koirala) their disturbed marriage due to Sheela's longing for a child which Raja feels will compromise in the artiste within him is linked in the film with Raja rediscovering the child within him while directing Abirup.

The film is marked with interesting twists and turns with certain humour,interesting characters and more importantly just the right chemistry with all the actors.Performances are the soul of this movie Prasenjit has got just the correct expressions(he generally goes overboard)for this one,Manisha Koirala is brilliant she has underplayed her character beautifully,the character could have turned intense and dramatic too had she overplayed it,Raima Sen(Anjali,the fashion designer of the film in the making) has been given a simple role of todays women and she is good as usual but the film completely belongs to Akashneel Dutt,he luminously shines as Abirup overshadows every actor in every scene!He is so good.Direction and screenplay of the film is different from Ghosh's earlier work but its a refreshing change.

Its a must watch for all who love Rituparno Ghosh's cinema.
