"A love letter to Calcutta," declares Mainak. "It's about a typical Bengali family of dadu (grandfather), parents and three brothers and their love interests. Then there's the Marwari community which plays a big part in today's cosmopolitan Calcutta. This is a film about the Calcutta we see now. It's urban and young and yet the Bong idiosyncrasies are very much there." Written by
You will enjoy this if you have ever left Kolkata behind! Maybe shed a tear or two! Thoroughly enjoyable!
In the beginning, I was not so keen on watching the movie until I actually started watching it. The plot revolves around a typical Bengali family, an NRI couple returning home, lads struggling with their love lives. Then, there's the drift between the Marus and Bongs! All those that make up Kolkata.
The movie has a lot of typical Bengali one-liners as well as comedy scenes. All the actors did a great job. I absolutely loved the modern, advising Soumitra Chatterjee in the movie. Parambrata's role was hilarious and Swastika perfectly laid out the role of the NRI housewife.
Having left Kolkata behind 2 years ago, this movie brought tears to my eyes. Every moment, I felt like I'm back home. Forget the loopholes and just bask in the joy of seeing Kolkata once again.
