Storyline

Rameshchandra Chaudhry, a lawyer by profession, is in love with Hemnalini, and is displeased when he finds that his father wants him to marry Sushilla, the daughter of a widow. He initially refuses despite of his father disowning him, but changes his mind when the bride's mother pleads with him, and gets married without even seeing, leave alone getting to know his bride. After the marriage, they board a boat which overturns after a storm, and they end up being the only survivors. Unable to get Hemnalini out of his mind, he refuses to be intimate with his bride. On talking with her gradually over the next few months, it slowly sinks in that she is not Sushilla but Kamla - the bride of another male! The question remains: what can he do under these circumstances, and what impact will this have on Kamla - who has traditionally accepted him as her husband. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Really stylishly and elegantly made!!!
7 August 2011 | by (Oman) – See all my reviews

A cinematic retelling of a Tagore classic where the predecessor (cinematic) boasted legends like Soumitra, Aparna Sen, Utpal Dutta & Rabi Ghosh is no mean feat. Rituporno Ghosh has attempted and succeeded in the hard task of presenting Tagore to a new generation of viewers bought up in this cyber era. Before you start watching you would wonder how a cast of Jishu Sengupta and the Sen sisters would hold up to the aforementioned cast. You would think that this endeavor would fall flat on its face due to the apparent inexperience of the present cast when compared to the old one but you would do well to trust the eccentric genius of Rituporno. Even though he has a habit of taking cinematic liberties (Chokher Bali for instance)this time he has stayed true to Tagore and interspersed the entire film with Tagore references and delightful selection of Rabindra sangeet. Its like a love song - a poetic tribute to our beloved bard. His knowledge of all things Tagore seems unparalleled. Its his effort that hides the acting inadequacies of this young cast. His presentation of this beloved tale makes you ignore that. You hardly even notice the lack of histrionic talent.

For a Tagore sophomore like me it was mesmerizing. And gut wrenching!! Tagore, through his work, had this ability to provide the entire spectrum of sheer joy and heart stopping pain. Such beauty! No wonder his work still outsells any modern work in Bengal. This movie combines the best of both world - Tagore's writing and Rituporno's direction. It should be watched by everybody who calls and thinks themselves Tagore lovers. This one linger long in your mind. Vintage Rituporno!! Feels like Tagore works are experiencing a renaissance....

Bhengeche Duaar, esheche jyotirmoy

Tomari hok joy!!!
