If there was a competition among Bengali films that were poor copies of Hollywood flicks, 'Mishti Chheler Dushtu Budhhi' would definitely be one of the top contenders for the first prize.
The animation along with the credits at the beginning of the film clearly suggest that the film would be grossly 'inspired' by the Macaulay Culkin-starrer Home Alone but it is a torture sitting through the entire length of the film.
What is it about?
Noted criminal Kalicharan who is just out of jail, teams up with his aides Puti and Baka and his love interest Mona to rob Mitra Villa, the residence of a rich hotelier. All the family members – two brothers, their wives and two children – were off to a business-cum-pleasure trip to Mandarmani and the seven-year-old boy of the elder son, Som along with the 70-year-old masala movie addict grandfather had to stay back at home for some strange reason. The man servant, Madhav, who stayed back to take care of these two, was actually an informer of the goons. What happens next is the short-of-hearing granny and the kid, with the help of the child’s toys and some household items, overpowers the four intruders and hand them over to the police.
The length of the film, thankfully which was a little under two hours, saved the audience from a lot of agony.
Had the director of 'Home Alone', Chris Columbus known that there would be a remake of this kind, perhaps he would not have made the original in the first place. Poor sound quality which leaves many dialogues lost, unnecessary item number, abysmally bad direction and acting, editing jerks, and amateurish camerawork have all made it a laughing stock. So much so that not even the invited guests at the premiere were laughing at the scenes which were supposed to be funny. The pranks that were shown in the film were not even close to that we have seen in the Hollywood superhit, and the goons falling for stupid traps would make you wonder that the kingpin was out of a reformatory home or an asylum.
What to do?
It is better to be home alone than spend time watching this film.
