The peripheral actors in the film appear as if they have been plucked right out of the streets — they can neither act nor mouth dialogues

Though Kaal Madhumas is about broken marriage standing in the way of true love, it is certainly not another Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna . However, there is a similarity. Here too, the plot stretches on like a telly-soap — not in leaps but oscillating back and forth in time.

So, we have an ambitious Kunal (Arindam Sil), resentful towards his wife, Swati (Rimjhim Gupta), simply because she's not up the mark, socially. Swati too realizes that Kunal is very different from what she regarded him to be. He is influential and can do anything to achieve what he wants to. Sarit (Sudip Sarkar) — the neighbour Swati falls in love with — is a simple guy. He is sensitive and seeing Swati in distress, he develops feelings for her. Sarit is fully aware of the fact that an affair with a married woman could cost him his life, but he decides to take on the world for her.

We see the duo going from place to place — away from Kunal's clutches — on a prolonged honeymoon for as long as they can afford. Whether their love will eventually overcome the hurdles is for you to find out.

The story may have a fairy-tale flavour to it, but the director spoils it in its execution. It seems impractical and illogical after a point. The production quality too lacks gloss and the scenes, at times, look like they have been shot with a handycam. There are instances where the songs have been forcibly introduced, thus adding to the length unnecessarily. The dialogues are boring and take us back to the '90s.

Rimjhim's character lacks depth. Her pain and dejection somehow fail to tug at the heartstrings. Debutant Sudip is like this restless teenager, who seems to be infatuated with the idea of being in love with an older woman. The actor should work harder on his body language. Arindam does justice to his character of an abusive husband. Debraj Roy, in a blink-and-you-miss-it role, as Rimjhim's father, has been wasted. Ranjini Chatterjee as Swati's friend, Keya, and her husband Anindya, essayed by Saptarshi Ray, come as a pleasant surprise. The peripheral actors in the film appear as if they have been plucked right out of the streets — they can neither act nor mouth dialogues. Now, how long will the film run at the theatre is anybody's guess.
