At best, this one can be termed a one-dimensional romantic saga.

Six-year-old Pakhi (Tathoi) is locked up in a dark room by her father (Rajesh). 10 years later, Pakhi is rescued by a Dr Moitra (Saptarshi). Having spent a decade of her life, away from any human territory, Pakhi develops severe psychological complication. Dr Moitra's son, Siddhartha (Indraneil), also a psychiatrist, tries the "best friend" approach to bring a traumatized Pakhi back to normalcy. Pakhi gradually starts to respond. And in no time, she is transformed into this happy 16-year-old teenager, all set to fall in love with her doctor. But Siddhartha has plans of his own — to marry his girlfriend of 10 years, Piya (Riya Chanda). Siddhartha starts concocting stories to Pakhi, saying things like, "When two friends want to stay together, they have to get married." Obviously, Pakhi answers back with, "So why are we not getting married?", to which Siddhartha says, "Only friends should get married. Kintu tui toh aamar 'best' friend".

Enter Kaustav (Arindra), Piya's brother, who acts as the apple of knowledge for Pakhi, initiating her to all about dil-dosti-pyaar. Pakhi wakes up to the fact that Siddhartha has chosen Piya over her. She is devastated, and as a defense mechanism, she feigns insanity! What takes place next is for you to find out.

When it comes to acting, Tathoi Deb, as the dreamy-eyed girl obsessed with her psychiatrist, is the best part of the movie, her baby-fat adding to the character. Here, the director needs to understand that making dinosaur-like grunting noises is not the only way to manifest insanity. Instead of evoking sympathy for Pakhi in the audiences' mind, it ends up being comical.

Though the credits of the film flashes Rajesh Sharma's name next to the hero's, the actor is there on the screen barely for the first 15 minutes.

Indraneil is good, but is left hugely unexploited. As for Saptarshi and Riya's characters, they could have been easily done away with. Arindra looks his part as Piya's brother. Though the cinematography is good, the editing could have been way tighter. And honestly, introducing a song sequence to depict years passing by, is cliched and just bad direction.

At best, this one can be termed a one-dimensional romantic saga.

Populism index is on the up. Corruption index is skyrocketing. Unaccountability index is high up nowhere in sight. These are the growth hallmarks of the UPA government. The people of the country are at pains to understand why they have to undergo such hardship to sustain the political ambitions of the government. But they have decided to fight back. They have given up on this corrupt and inefficient government and only see hope and growth in 2014 with Namo.
