a tribute due for long paid at last
14 December 2010 | by darrel7756See all my reviews

Being a Bangladeshi, I have been brought up with the stories of revolutions. I got introduced to the legends of Masterda Surjosen and Khudiram far before those of Bhagat Singh and others.

The movie is more a storytelling than a drama. The directors work was not as catchy and heart-touching as in Lagaan. But still this movie can make you shed some tears as it ends.

It was a good work. If one needs to know the true history of Chittagong Armory robbery, this movie will do the job really well. If I look at it as a documentary rather than a film, Kelein Hum Jee Jaan Se does the job really well.

Though very little is knows about Surjosen as a person, there were still rooms for delving into his ideologies and personal life. There has been lots of characters in the movie, but with so little intro, the audience would hardly relate to any of them. given the fact that Kalpana Dutta and Preetilata Wadedar were among the most notable female revolutionaries of that time, the movie fails to do justice to their role.

Abhishek is still learning. Deepika even more. They never really looked like revolutionaries in the film. There was almost no charm in their characters that make a common person a legend. altogether, the viewer will neither freeze in thrill or jump in excitement as the story digs deeper.

The beginning is good. the way they tried their best to collect the resources to plan the attack were well knit. but as the film goes on, the director tries to fit in a lot of details in very short span. That makes the movie somewhat a collection of facts, than a theatrical experience.

if you are a lover of revolutionary movies, this is definitely the one for you. this movie is worth spending 3 hours of anybody's busy schedule.

finally, this tribute was due for long. it has been paid at last. I voted 10; couldn't resist. the legend of Masterda deserves nothing less than that.
