Abhimaan can be a complex emotion and in high doses it can prove to be destructive. Director Raj Chakraborty uses this emotion to the max and creates an engaging film replete with melodrama action, and comedy.
Abhimaan is the story of a proud business tycoon Ashok Deb Burman (Sabyasachi Chakraborty) and his estranged daughter Madhuja (Anjana Basu). Madhuja harbours abhimaan for her father — who disowned her after trying to kill her husband. Twenty five years have now passed. Mellowed with age, Ashok now wants to mend his relationship with Madhuja. For this, he seeks the help of his grandson, Aditya, played with aplomb by Jeet.
While the storyline is predictable, we must laud Raj's impeccable execution as he manages to extract excellent performances from his cast. Jeet fits effortlessly into the role of a rich and swashbuckling businessman for whom family always comes first. Saabysachi has delivered another great performance. Kharaj and Kanchan Mullick bring just the right amount of comic relief, albeit a bit OTT, to the melodrama. But it's Anjana, the adamant daughter, who steals the show. With her restrained and nuanced performance, she carries the film on her shoulders. It's hard to miss those chunky statement finger rings that sometimes distract you from the proceedings.
The songs by Shuddho Roy are shot in picturesque Europe. Saaiyan and Mon bechara are particularly catchy. What we like about Raj is that he continues to make mainstream movies unapologetically. Go, watch this masala movie for sheer entertainment and nothing else.
