"Moner Manush" or "The Quest", A man in search of man!
11 June 2011 | by vikram-ry123See all my reviews

I was surprised last year when I heard Goutam Ghose directed a film on Lalan Fakir and Prosenjit Chatterjee is starring as Lalan. I thought what a terrible curse is going to fall on Bengali film's.

I watched over tons of Prosenjit Chatterjee's movie when I was a child. I hate all his commercial films as a rationalistic quality-film lover. But it is my greatness to see some exceptional acting by Prosenjit Chatterjee in "Moner Manush".

Director Goutam Ghose lefts no criticism to the viewers. His brilliant efforts makes the film above and beyond in sanctity. The location is perfectly going with the central theme. We studied Lalan Fakir in our history of Bengali Literature and the director has visualized every scene like eye witness.

I should not tell the story just to increase lines. The film is completely discoverable. The best biographical film ever made in Indian Film History. I am giving 9.5/10 in this review.

As the film ends my facebook status was: "A must watch biographical film. The world should watch or the world would miss. The choice is your's." No more words "excellent".
