In the last scene when Prabir is lying dead, the entire ice bucket and glass is full of blood. The blood splatter from his head wound wouldn't have reached the ice bucket lying some distance away to completely fill it with blood, while the part of the table lying in between is relatively clean with just a few splashes.

Just one word..MAGNIFICENT
6 October 2011 | by akki440See all my reviews

With a watched movie list of around 1800, I sure nowadays can guess a crime thriller within half-time. But I was in for a shock. Or should I say pleasant surprise. Bengali movie is surely being resurrected. Every now and then, you will find a movie that's at par with national standards, if not international. The songs are outstanding, each one surpassing the previous, and aptly, the final end credits song, i.e., Gobheerey jao is the best. Now comes the best part. Am a die-hard Al Pacino fan. A few minutes back, I had a debate with a friend, who has not yet watched the movie. I just said, "It's pointless not giving credit to an actor just because he's Bengali. This performance is surely up there in my rating books beside Pacino's Colonel of Scent of a Woman." Dialogues of this movie are a class apart, with extraordinary subtle power, punched with dry sarcastic humor. Download, buy, go to theaters, do what you can, but take this from a guy who regularly watches Akira Kurosawa, Chris Nolan and sundry, you will regret watching a class act if you don't watch it.
