Nutshell: Kathbirali (2020) Good, bold but could've been better
16 June 2020 | by lionel-logicSee all my reviews

The social message regarding the impotent problem has been increased in the Bengali society due to the conservative environment of the village. Furthermore, it explores the reasons of the odds in the rural area. The chemistry was quite a little off with Sporshia due to the acting skills that limited her to speak within their dialects that mixed with the Dhakaiya ones, until the ending. But, the ending is a bit rushed but it reminds me of Trivikram (S/O Sathyamurthy director) for its new and informative ending, though it could have been slowly justified. Otherwise, the story is brilliant and the other actors foreshadowed it so well that, we can understand the flawed human beings. On the contrary, few explanations are needed! Everyone's acting is awesome but Sporshia's due to the glamorous avatar that overshadowed her acting. To further mention, the protagonist's performance and charisma could have been developed a little more to take a time to the character, otherwise a good performance. The screenplay could have been a little tighter as a romantic story but the screenwriter has the potential to capture the emotions to carry out. It has a brilliant cinematography, good to great acting performances but a story which could have developed with the characters visually, not only in a dialogue form. The ending is quite unpredictable and emotional. Overall, it has the Bengaliana feeling and a bit of a charm, with the mixture of mystery and thriller, as well as its realism! For my friend screenwriter-I remember, Alfred Hitchcock remaked his own film 'A Man Who Knew Too Much', then his remake became a hit as he quoted 'from a talented amateur to the living professional'. I know, you can do it!
