So before the director embarks on another Arjun adventure, he should give greater thought to the script and acting

Author Samaresh Majumder's young sleuth took us on various teenage adventures in our pujor chhuti years back. Then we grew up and Arjun lost his charm somewhat to wizards and vampires. However, as Tollywood (re)discovers Bengali detectives in literature, we should have known that once Feluda, Bomkesh and Kakababu have arrived, Arjun can't be far behind. But (yes, sadly, there's a but), if you are looking for a trip down memory lane, you may be a tad disappointed. Even though the film has all the elements of a good whodunnit, an inexperienced protagonist, amateurish dialogues and several directorial loopholes have dimmed its potential. It's true that this film marks Om's debut and we should not judge him too harshly. He lacks screen presence and it doesn't help his case that he's surrounded by powerhouse actors like Sabyasachi Chakraborty (as Amal Som), Biswajit Chakraborty (Major), Manoj Mitra (Bistubabu) and Dipankar De (Mr Sen). Arjun embarks on his adventure to protect the reformed junkie Sita (Raya), the loving daughter of Mr Sen. But he pales in comparison to Sabyasachi's Amal Som. The film can easily be called The Adventures of Amal Som. Arjun is important, but throughout he plays Robin to Som's Batman. It's something director Prem Modi (another debutant) should have guarded against. It's also true that one actor's inexperience can't mar a movie. Still the film fails to make a mark. The director has utilized the stunningly beautiful locations of Kalimpong and Sikkim well — the misty mountains and dark jungles look appropriately mysterious. But what's lacking is the nail-biting suspense of a whodunnit. Blame it on weak dialogues and a way-too-loud background score. Even Major's jokes (part of the reason why the Arjun series was so popular) sound stale after a point. The way this film ends clearly points to a sequel — even a series. So before the director embarks on another Arjun adventure, he should give greater thought to the script and acting.
