  1. I was pleasantly surprised to see this movie, as I did it not expecting something more than a run-of-the-mill social. It has one of those rare things in movies, which without revealing to the reader I cannot describe in much detail except to say that it surprises you almost half way into the movie ( when most movies pack the major moments into the first quarter or the last ).

    There is also some great music in this movie, of a kind rarely seen in Bangla films, including a live concert with violins, flute and piano.

    Great acting by Priyanka Sarkar in a difficult role ( difficult because it did not have any great dramatic moments or demands ). Supporting cast was competent though I felt Indraneil Dasgupta could have portrayed his sense of absurdity and otherworld-ness a bit better.

    Camera work in widescreen was top class for a Bangla film, and the director must be recommended for not allowing the story to slip, though at times it could have.

    All in all, a very nice movie which many people may stop watching somewhere in the first 20 minutes as I almost did. It will reward you after that.

  2. I saw a good Bengali movie after a long. I didn't expected much from the movie when I started, but I proved to be wrong after the finish & I'm happy for that. The directer/story writer have done a very good job. They have been very successful in respect of the uniqueness of the story and in maintaining the suspense till the last scene of the movie.

    Though some of the films idea seemed to be taken from Prestige and The Final Destination series, but that never shortens the work of the director. Some of the dialogs are almost the translation From the movie prestige. The dreaming idea have been taken from the Final Destination movie. But unlike there, the length of the dream is long enough. And the destination is quite different.

    Real life location choosing have been done very nicely within Kolkata (EM Bypass, Mukundapur, Bijan Setuetc). The music of the movie are also good.

    Someone may not like the advertisements shown within the movie, but I think this could be granted for the financial reason looking at the Tollywood industry situation.

    Will wait for the next work from this director.
