Murder, Suicide, Psychological Abuse, is all about Mahanagar@Kolkata!
7 August 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It is a Sunday evening, filthy air out side the window, a noise coming constantly from outside, drops of water falling at the street, a boring rainy day. I was searching for a good film that would make my time worthy. Sin City feeling still not erased from my mind. Two days ago my friend gifted me a DVD of Mahanagar@Kolkata... I play the DVD.

Mahanagar@Kolkata is not a film that is absurd in any sense. It is fanatic but still a series of defatigation. A bunch of stories relate every character in cinematic way. In sense of motion picture you can see some reverse motions also! That end up with flattering human emotions. Nearly all characters are sensible. But still I can't forget the character Biren (Arun Mukherjee) draws many lines; Chandan Roy Sanyal, Rituparna Sengupta, Anjan Dutt are also scored well. May be cats 'n' dogs is the central theme of this film. Mutual understanding between a spouse is not always a solution to maintain the relation. Rest of the social life showed in the film is a part of daily dozen. The supernatural elements used in the film is very conceptual but no- doubt influenced by western drama's. The film is successful because I think the project was challenging to every person involved in it.

But I have a question in my mind, why modern Bengali films are getting melodramatic? Directors making films not to entertain audience but to frustrate them? Creativity involves in entertaining only, rest: Murder, Sex, Rape, Intoxication, Suicide, Psychological Abuse; society knows more than your films. All major Bengali directors working on social abuse but that should be avoid to reunion a good society. And Mahanagar@Kolkata totally fails to fulfill social need.
