An awesome journey through continuous laughter and a good moral.
22 January 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ashchorjyo Prodeep Second Venture of Anik Dutta. An awesome journey through continuous laughter and a good moral. I really loved the way the fairy tale was linked to a commercial truth. The unexpected climax was really shocking and little sad. Slightly inspired by Ray's classic Parash Pathar. Acting - Superbly done by Saswata Da, Roni Da and Sreelekha Mitra Music - Goes well with the movie.. Cinematography - Good! Dialogues - Best part of the movie! Direction - Great work done by Anik Dutta

P.S. A must watch movie .. One of the finest movie of this year.. Full- on entertainment! But some scenes including the ending, maybe a bit vulgar or disturbing for U/A audience !
