The film seems to stretch a little after the plot is laid out initiall. ​But the cinematography is good and the director does his best to hold this emotional tale together till the end.

Mrs Sen deals with two women, whose identities are shaped by their husband's surname. They are forced to grapple with the fact that their husband lived a dual life that neither of them had knowledge of. Who is the actual Mrs Sen? Does Somnath's (Rohit) second marriage to Sohini (Hrishitaa) nullify his earlier one with Anuradha (Rituparna)? Or does Anuradha's presence invalidate Sohini's position? Is it at all possible for these two bereaved women to share a bond?

These are questions that Agnidev Chatterjee tries to answer in the film. And we feel he has succeeded, to an extent. The storyline is not linear and constantly swings between the present and the past. The use of dialogue is sparse, letting the two actresses — Rituparna and Hrishitaa — emote silently, and brilliantly. There are lots of close-ups of Anuradha and Sohini's faces, serving as windows into their turbulent minds. Rohit Roy does a good job but has significantly less screen time than his leading ladies. After all, it is not his story. It is the story of the missuses.

On the flip side, the film seems to stretch a little after the plot is laid out initially. There is also a lot of rona-dhona , which gets a bit too soppy after a point. But the cinematography is good and the director does his best to hold this emotional tale together till the end. Even the lovemaking scenes — traditionally the weak point of Bengali films — are well executed.

The supporting cast, too, is good. Biplab Chatterjee and Anusuya Majumdar are just right for their parts. Shubhasish Mukherjee, who plays Sohini's differently-abled brother, could have kept it a little more restrained. Shankar Chakraborty as Anuradha's brother steals the limelight in his scenes. But the find of the movie is Priyangshu Chowdhury, who plays Somnath and Sohini's eight-year-old son. His measured acting is definitely meant to amaze!
