is an average romantic comedy with bits and pieces of out-of-the-blue romantic scenes and a lot of forced comedy.
Meghna (Srabanti) is the daughter of business magnet Subhendu (Biswajeet Chakroborty). Avik (Hiraan) is the son of Subhendu's childhood friend Subimal (Supriyo Dutt). Subimal has entrusted buddy Subhendu with making a man out of his 'beyara' son. Meghna and Avik start off on the wrong foot, get on each others' (and often the audiences') nerves, but finally fall in love.
is an average romantic comedy with bits and pieces of out-of-the-blue romantic scenes and a lot of forced comedy. If you are the kind who laughs at each and every forwarded PJ that comes your way, some of the punchlines in the film will have you in splits. But, to be precise, those punchlines are one of the few things that the film has going for it, the other being child actor Soumi, who plays Meghna's cousin Brishti. It's Brishti who's got the best dialogues. Sample this: When Meghna tells her, "It's bad to read someone else's letter," she retorts saying, "I know. That is why I am not a good girl!"
As the film loses the funny one-liners in the second half, it loses the audiences' interest too. Although Srabanti looks good in the film, she comes across as much older when screened opposite Hiraan. Plus, in the song sequences that have been shot abroad, she looks plump, especially in E mon ajkal. Hiraan is a lot better than what we saw of him in his last film two years ago. Kharaj and Supriyo are left grossly unexploited. Biswajeet Chakraborty is effortless as the satisfied-with-life businessman. But the scene, in which he loses control and slaps his wife, comes as a rude shock.
Lastly, just one question to the film's editor: Which train to Maldah do you get from Kankurgachhi station?
