The promos would suggest that Bapi bari jaa is an adult movie but the number of kids that were seen accompanying their guardians on the very first day, to the theatre, shows that parents of today are as cool as guardians of the characters in the movie. The film does have a few kissing scenes but the present generation parents and children do not seem to have a problem watching together intimate scenes on screen.
What's it about
Bapi bari jaa is a story about five friends who were fresh graduates and the way of looking at lives in their own ways but the story is mostly about a youth born with a silver spoon in his mouth who goes on to discover life and love.
Bapi (Arjun Chakrabarty), the son of a reputed jeweller of the city is in love with his friend-since-class III, Dola (Mimi Chakraborty) but Mimi is miles away from the idea. Bapi, an introvert character, makes up for his timidness by footing all the bills for their outings and parties and even for expensive gifts that his friend wants to buy for his girl. Rejected by Dola, Bapi settles for an arranged marriage with Shiuli (Shalmi Burman), who finds out that Bapi is in love with Dola and decides to help him groom into a person who Dola would fall for. Things work out accordingly but in the process Shiuli falls in love with Bapi as well. What happens at the end is worth a watch
The cast. All of them have performed very well an especially Arjun with his fantasies was outstanding. Director duo Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha have done it once again. Music by Jeet Ganguly leaves an impact. Although there are certain parts of the story which one would like to say 'predictable but the end is not conventional and gives a little twist at the end.
Jeet's character should have been made little more stable. For sometime, the audience is left wondering who does he actually love, Dola or Shiuli. Certain sections of the second half is a drag.
What to do?
For the sake of patronisation of gutsy experimentations in Bengali cinema, go for it.
