a tale of human relationships
20 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Based on a story by the late Sunil Gangopadhyay the film narrates the tale of a pair of unhappy Bengali couple in the US who are supposedly successful in their lives. A melancholic tone pervades the entire movie.

Pradeep (Prasenjit Chatterjee) and his wife Kuhu (Padmapriya Janakiraman) who has a sharp tongue falls apart. Their good friends, a couple Ranojoy (Chandan Roy Sanyal) and Ursashi (Kamalinee Mukherjee) also leaves the town and moves to San Jose after Ursashi was tremendously hurt by the criticism of Kuhu about her cooking at a dinner she had hosted in honor of Bengali acting legend Soumitro Chattopadhyay at her house.

On business assignments, Pradeep has to visit different cities in the US. On one such occasion, she visits San Jose, and a covert relationship develops between him and Ursashi. In the meanwhile, Kuhu meets her former Bangladeshi lover Usuf(Indraneil Sengupta) after a long time. Inspite of her initial resistance, she can't hold him back for long. You get the drift … some characters I feel have no relevance to the plot. An uncle of Kuhu living in the US hallucinates and goes running out on the roads in a bid to reach a railway station in Kolkata, apparently a flashback to an incident 30 years back in his life. The director (Aniruddha Bhattacharyya) pays scant attention to the child characters – son and daughter of Pradeep and Kuhu. An illness brings Pradeep and Kuhu together, but will they live happily ever after?

To find out watch this film whose redeeming features are the beautiful US locales (Ranjan Palit's camera-work is splendid) where it has been mostly shot, some poetic sequences especially towards the denouement as well as some credible acting by the lead characters. The director pays a sort of homage to Martin Scorcese's TAXI DRIVER where Pradeep (like Travis Bickle) is seen in a particular sequence moonlighting in the street .. Tanusree Sankar acts in a supporting role.
