A very much experienced police detective Mr. Shabor Dasgupta (Actor-Saswata Chatterjee) is assigned to do the task of solving the mystery of the murder of Mitali Ghosh (Actress-Swastika Mukherjee),who is a woman with a messy past life, who was killed on the night she had thrown a house party for her close friends and family. The task is very tough for Shabor to find the real victim. There are lots of twists in the story.Written by
Ebar Shabor is a sleek film. It is a murder mystery with its fair share of chases, skeletons in the cupboard and shady characters with more facets to them than initially visible. Saswata Chatterjee and Ritwik Chakraborty, perhaps the two best and in-form actors in Bengali cinema at present, deliver two very good performances and are ably supported by the rest of the cast, notably June Malia. The protagonist sleuth, Shabor, is part of the official force, in contrast with the more popular freelancing detectives in Bengali cinema (and literature). This takes way some drama perhaps but enhances the authenticity. There are too many characters in the plot for each to be fully developed in the limited time available, which is a pity as the characters are colourful but we get no more than glimpses into some of them. The sequences of Shabor ruminating in the company of his colleague are some of the best shot, along with the dramatic chases.
To conclude: an entertaining movie, with some accomplished performances.
