31 January 2014 | by shiladityabasu1988See all my reviews

This movie is a tribute to 19th century Bengali folk music and its trace back to the time when the folk song was at its peek.Its an awesome concept as not much emphasis have been given on the subject.The story telling wise it made me really think that there was character name Anthony, and direction wise it is beautifully directed. The way the movie tells us about the emergence of the Bengali folk song culture is really beautifully depicted in a satirical phrase. Its such an important thing and I would personally feel that many researcher who are doing research on Bengali folk music may actually take a cue from this film. The way this movie depicts the journey from 19th century Bengali culture to this modern Bengali culture and of course the band culture is quite interesting. This one film really made me think that the subject have really been untold of, and to make such a marvelous film with such a delicate and sensitive subject kudos and hats off to the makers. I personally feel film like this can be source of inspiration to people who believes in music, live in music and pray for music. Again well deserve applaud or standing ovation no words van describe the feeling to SRIJIT MUKHERJEE,KABIR SUMAN,PROSENJIT CHATTERJEE AND OTHERS FOR MAKING SUCH A SPELLBOUND FILM.
