All in all, a good watch for the kids, as the exam season nears its end.

The films pans out as a story being narrated to the audience by Paran Bandyopadhyay. Siblings Titli (Megha Deb) and Tabul (Sayan Sarkar) come to Digha with family for a vacation. There, the two adventure-freaks, who invoke Feluda and Mata Hari, stumbles upon a mystery that takes their vacation on a different course. Turns out, Lalkamol babu (Bhaswar Chatterjee), who is the occupant of the room right next to theirs in the hotel, has disappeared without a trace. The two kids, while chasing this mystery, chances upon a gang of ghosts. The film, based on a short story by Prafulla Roy, has enough thrill-value to keep its target audience — the children — hooked to the screen. More so, if your kid is a fan of The Famous Five or Feluda.

The film, although having no big names to boast of, makes an impact because of the convincing performances. We have Bhaswar Chatterjee as the tormented soul who is looking to avenge the villains. Apart from a couple of dialogues in the first few minutes of the film, Bhaswar's role is mostly silent. He nails the frustration and the helplessness of his character merely by emoting through the eyes. We have Shantilal Mukherjee as the paar Bangal manager of the hotel. Well timed one-liners coming from that kind of a poker face acts as the perfect comic relief. Jayjit Banerjee too holds his own as the evil brother who can go to any length for money, as do Bijoy Mukherjee and Shankar Debnath as the remorseless contract killers. But the stars definitely are Megha and Sayan. While Megha is praiseworthy as the sensible sister with a solution to every problem, Sayan, as the cheeky sidekick to her Nancy Drew, tugs at the heartstrings. Their uninhibited acting, with a hint of that adorable cockiness, characteristic of the pre-teen years, makes them look the real deal.

The font used for the title of the film in the posters might have struck you for their similarity to that of Bhooter Bhabishyat . Well, that, and occasional use of the dialogue, ' haami garib aadmi aache babu ' is where the similarity ends. The ghosts though, are a mishmash of the dementor-ish look of the Harry Potter series and the Bhooter Raja-esque voice of the Goopi-Bagha series.

The music, however, should have been way stronger since it was intended to act as an anchor to the plot. The screenplay falters at places where the jump between scenes seem too abrupt. The biggest blunder, though, is in the first scene itself, when the audience gets to know the reason for Lalkamol babu 's disappearance, thus taking away from them the pleasure of unraveling the mystery along with Titli and Tabul.

All in all, a good watch for the kids, as the exam season nears its end.
