Nice Art, Nice try.
11 July 2013 | by rony36See all my reviews

OK, I have read all 5 reviews (up to my writing) and found some disappointments from reviewers. But I've found more amusing things than errors which are more strong than these errors.

Although we have got a good numbers of spectacular movies from Aparna Sen and it's another. Yes, "Goynar Baksho" is a long story but she tried her best to represent all in 2.5hours. Because you must have to consider the tricks to grab "Audiences" of all classed and regions. May be she have some future plan about '71 liberation War (Just my assumption).

In a single word it's a complete movie with complete sense of making. Superb set, screenplay, cinematography. Most importantly dialogues. Just amazing. But I must say Konkona Sen Sharma acted 20% of her acting skill. I think a poor performance came from her in this movie. May be director could choose a different actress replacing Konkona who would be fit for this character.

Now telling something boring stuffs about Bangladeshi directors. More or less Aparna Sen had putted '71 plot here inside this movie and I should say it's a brave stuff, where Bangladeshi directors or film makers are not so interested to work with this beautiful plot (except some movies like Guerrilla, MeherNigar, Amar Bondhu Rashed and some other more). They just think complete war film with this plot. But I must say they can put this plot into commercial film like this "Goynar Baksho". Salute and thanks Aparna Sen to use this '71 plot.

At very end of my review, I'm thanking to the Director/Writer of this movie "not to let her(Somlata) go with that Rose hold poet lover". :)
