Not all its cracked up to be
27 March 2010 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

At about Mid 2008, Bangladesh went through this amazing Movie revival, Everyone literally couldn't wait for the release of this highly anticipated movie starring Chanchal and Farhana. I guess it really didn't live up to its expectations, at least to me.

To begin with the stories potential was completely lost, it was a one of a kind story but there wasn't really much of plot of character development going on. The movie was just a whole collection of one beautiful shot after another. Even though it was a love story there wasn't much of development there.

Now lets go to the good bits, the imagery and obscure dream sequence towards the end was amazing. To top it up and what has probably been the saving grace for the movie was the music. Yes Arnob's music can single handedly make yous it through this movie. the classic titles like 'jao pakhi' and shonar moina paki are still alive among the crowds.

Even then Monpura has proved a major movement for Bangldeshi Movie revival and has safely broken all records set by Bangladeshi movies in the last 50 years. This one's still going down in history. Good watch if you don't expect much
