We would have given the film five out of five stars had it been renamed as ‘A Perfect Guide on How Not to Make a Film’. Sitting through the entire length of the film will make you feel like you are sitting on an electric chair.
What it is about?
Newly-married Ananya Chatterjee (Arpita Chatterjee) is a news anchor and she loves the way her husband and in-laws support her. She had to resume office, a after her marriage because of an important assignment had come up and her husband never created a fuss about it. But things come to a head when a riot breaks out in the city because of a controversial, Bangladeshi female author. Here they show the picture of Taslima Nasreen and placards with her name but nobody refers to her name in the dialogues.
Ananya gets stuck in the middle of a riot and is promptly saved by a small-time crook, Siraz (Parambrata Chatterjee). Siraz hides her in a garage and they had to spend the night there. In the morning, when Siraz brings Ananya home, the first one who looks at her suspiciously is her husband! Soon her in-laws start judging her too.
The film has failed abysmally in every possible department. The script is loose, there’s a hamfest going on in the acting department. In the technical department, it’s a failure too -- the music is jarring, cinematography is bad, the editing is the worst.
Here is a list of a few funny faux-pas that you should watch out for if you are going to watch the film:
1. Ananya wears a backless blouse with the bra hook tucked at the sides!
2. She takes showers wearing all her jewellery.
3. The reflection of the crew behind the camera was visible on the mirrors of the car which was being driven by Debangshu.
4. Only one news ticker is seen running on the news channel throughout the day.
5. Debangshu leaves for Ananya wearing a black helmet. It suddenly changes its size and shape in the next shot.
6. The newspaper headline of the next day is an old headline.
7. The letter which Ananya writes can hardly have five lines on a single page but the voiceover (of Debangshu) reads out two complete pages!
8. Debangshu doesn’t even read the letter aloud. His father and sister reacts to the voiceover (telepathy!) and start saying sorry for what they have done.
What to do
We are surprised that the film even made it to the multiplexes. Watch it only if you have some money to waste.
