With the rain gods turning fierce, a trip to the theatre for this film is not worth the effort
Are you an avid fan of TV serials? Does your daily routine depend on their schedules? If so,
won't interest you much. And if you are ardent watcher of 'new wave' Bengali films, the film will kill you with its high-voltage melodrama. It looks and feels like a mega-serial fitted into a two-hour capsule. But, while the world of TV serials has come a long way, the storyline of
talks about things they showed 10 years ago. Ananya, a loving and meek housewife, who, despite being intelligent and well-educated, prefers doing back-breaking household chores. Her happiness depends on the well-being of her husband and in-laws, who don't appreciate her efforts one iota. One day she meets her long-lost childhood friend, Sreya (Koneenica), a smart and working single mother. To fulfil her husband's wish to be a filmmaker and her family's dream of a better life, Ananya reluctantly takes Sreya's job offer. Sreya's lecherous boss (Krishna Kishore) exploits her and turns her into a sophisticated escort. Ananya suffers in silence and ultimately turns senile. This cliched plot is turned into a dragging film where same scenes are repeated over and over again and the music is of the listen-and-forget category.
The only watchable part of this 'serial-in-disguise-of-a-film' is Ananya Chatterjee. She effortlessly fits both her avatars — sweet and simple housewife and reality-hardened and gorgeous escort. While Koneenica tries a bit too hard to be Sreya, one honest piece of advice can be given to Nigel — the actor really needs to work on his diction and tone down the melodrama. A very important scene like the revelation of Ananya's true identity to her family turns into a hilarious one with Nigel's over-acting.
All in all, with the rain gods turning fierce, a trip to the theatre for this film is not worth the effort.
