Storyline

Tamodeep is brilliant, sensitive and eternally perturbed by his grandfather's prophecy that he would either be an artist or run away from home. A junior doctor by profession, Tamodeep has little communication with his near and dear ones, even lesser with his mother Sraboni, against whom he nurses a grudge for intruding into his life during his adolescent years. Quiet and introvert on the surface, Tamodeep is quite restless within. His desires often take complex routes and hover around Meghna, his former biology teacher and now a psychological counselor on radio, Mohini, the sex siren of soft porn movies and Sriparna, a law student whom he befriends on a cyber social networking site. The night before his 23rd birthday, Mohini, gets admitted in his nursing home as a accident victim and Tamodeep's life is destined to change forever.. In his desperate attempt to prevent Mohini from going out of his life, Tamodeep has to go through a series of overlapping events involving the four women in... Written by Atanu Ghosh

Tale of a young doctor...
5 March 2011 | by (Kolkata,India) – See all my reviews

unique idea as expected from Mr.Atanu Ghosh who has already shown his brilliance in Angshumaner Chobi..he has shown how varied and diverse human relationships can be ignoring time, space,race,cast,creed..and so on.The movie swings between imagination and reality and is henceforth quite engaging!!..great psychological exploration by the director...A young doctor craves for a porn star played by Paoli..But things take a different turn when the doctor,Tamodeep(Jishu)meets her as a patient..small nuances have been presented wonderfully.!!Indrani Haldar plays a fantastic role as Jishu's teacher who tries to mould him differently!!..One will find various characters with their different motives and emotions...considering from both plot and character,it is an excellent and a must-watch movie!!
