Storyline

Kolkata 2013. Abby Sen is a 30-year-old television producer. He is academically brilliant, has a strong background in science and watching science fiction films is his greatest passion. But his programs on television are never popular and fail to make a mark on the TRP ratings. And that is perhaps the only reason why Abby has lost no less than seven jobs. Every time he is fired, his wife Somy gets hysterical and throws down everything that she could lay her hands on. So Abby has not disclosed his last dismissal to her. By sheer coincidence, Abby meets a self-styled scientist who claims to have discovered a time-travel capsule. The scientist volunteers to take Abby back in time when getting a job was not that difficult. But he has certain conditions, which Abby must fulfill. Finding all options bleak, Abby decides to agree to his conditions and travel 33 years back in time, that is, in 1980. Thereafter, a series of unforeseen incidents and intricacies of relationships make Abby's life ... Written by Ghosh, Atanu (1)

Top-Notch acting and the blend of emotion and humour is brilliant
12 November 2015 | by dipsenindiaSee all my reviews

Abir Chatterjee as the protagonist. Abby Sen who despite academic brilliance turns out to be unsuccessful as a television producer. It is very difficult to score for a film which goes back several years in time. Joy Sarkar excels in not only scoring a fabulous BGM but gives the audience a pure nostalgic trip down the memory lane with his songs. The casting is appropriate and delivers credible character portrayals. We forget that nothing is as important as varied shades of humane bonds that life presents as latent possibilities and which elude us in the competitive era of ours for we ignore them for frivolous gains. Life is not only bigger than death but indeed remains the greatest teacher one can ever have. Arunima Ghosh as his wife does a very competent job of playing the role of Abby's wife. Other artists performed very well. Full of emotion and nostalgic . The storyline is unique, acting top-notch and the blend of emotion and humour is brilliant. Must watch.
