A musical whose memories will stay for a long time to come...
20 January 2014 | by sandipan-bhattacharyaSee all my reviews

Maybe I'm biased, but coming straight to the point, this is Srijit Mukherji's best film till date. And that ought to tell you enough since some of his earlier films were ones that changed the entire face of mainstream Bangla cinema.

To be very honest, when I first saw the trailer of Jaatishwar I was slightly unsure of whether this would be as good as the director's previous works... But having watched the film, I m awestruck. I feel enriched musically and also as a Bangali... A wonderful film... A musical journey worth cherishing... Its a complete film, with brilliant cinematography and a script that celebrates our language... On the acting front Prosenjit Chatterjee delivers yet another epic performance... Jishu, Swastika, Abir, Mamata Shankar all are very good... But the winner here is the music... When a film is labelled as a musical of memories, the director had to ensure the music justifies the label... And who else than Kabir Suman to pull this one off... Absolutely brilliant work... Thanks Srijit Mukherji for yet another fantastic film... A movie like this deserves no less than 10... You forget all cinematic clichés, the little inconsistencies here and there and the only thing that remains with you as you leave the theatre is one good feeling of having watched a new milestone being set in Bangla cinema... And of course the proud feeling of being a Bangali...
