Classic Kaushik Ganguly Movie
24 July 2016 | by suvadeepbanerjeeSee all my reviews

The movie resembles a classic Kaushik Ganguly movie on the likes of Khad, Apur Panchali, Shobdo, etc. The movie touches you once the end credits start rolling.

Two parallel cinematic visions are shown in tandem, one of which explains the relationship between Parambrata and Raima and the other propels the main story forward. The story is unique though I personally find the pace and presentation a little bit lackluster. The cinematography is average compared to some of the excellently shot movies of Srijit and other movies of Kaushik. While watching the movie, the script provides this feeling that something dramatic is going to happen round the corner, but you are kept unsatisfied as the movie progresses.

The acting is of an acceptably high quality though this is certainly not Parambrata or Abir's best. The emotional tension and uncertainties between Parambrata and Raima are handled beautifully and is a pleasure to watch.

Particularly, the stellar acting of Churni Ganguly is top-notch and worthy of a National Award nomination. The only reason she may not warrant it is because of the limited screen-space she gets in the bigger scheme of things.

I personally feel there was a huge scope of developing this into a much better movie and the audience may be left a tad disappointed after the end.
