Story: Arjun (Arjun Chakraborty) and his friends of a laughter club are the support system of an old widower Daroka Bhaduri (Soumitra Chatterjee), whose son (Subhasish Mukhopadhyay), daughter-in-law (June Maliah) and grandson stay in the US.

Review: Jara Roddure Bhijechilo is a movie that touches on a pertinent subject in a very straightforward way. In fact, it goes around the very idea of entertaining storytelling to suck the viewer into a world that revolves around the Bard and his creations. And in doing so, it turns itself into a monotonous musical — bereft of the essence of good storytelling, and at times, even logic.

Film starring Soumitra Chatterjee to bring together three generations

True, all actors, including the various child artistes are worth a watch, but the storyline is too Tagore-heavy to leave room for anything else. While the male actors have been successful in adding that little bit of colour to their characters under the omnipresent shadow of the great Bard, June Maliah is really good as the mother torn between the love for her child and the vagaries of life.

But it's the storyline that fails miserably. None of the characters, except that of orphan-turned-Daroka's alter ego, Arjun, is done justice. The story of the son and his Boston-returned family falters and shakes, never making any sense throughout the movie. In fact, one fails to understand why do they want to return to the US if their apartment is getting repossessed, the husband is unemployed and the wife runs the family selling flowers on the streets of Boston, when they can live in relative comfort in India?

The songs hold true to the storyline and so does the background score. The camerawork is excellent and one gets to witness some great shots throughout the movie. But overall, Jara Roddure Bhijechilo seems like a movie made with great intentions which fails to venture much beyond the boredom that's inherent to every form of art that gets overdone. Somewhere, the director forgot that the best way to deliver a message is to bring smiles on people's faces...to actually make them enjoy the means, and the end. He seems to have forgotten that the time-tested way to do that is to entertain, not make you shift in your seat waiting for the ordeal to end.

Watch it if you are a hardcore Tagore fan. But if you prefer your movies to carry you away from the hardships of life into a world that's entertaining, this film is not for you.
