Watch Trailer, Teaser of Hoi Choi
Bengal’s most controversial and hot and sexy actress Paoli Dam‘s film ‘Hoi Choi’ released few days back to an appreciative response all over Bengal. Paoli, in the movie has played the role of Piyali who is a Theater Director and she claims to be inspired by Mahesh Bhatt for this not-so-easy role.
“Earlier when the director Debarati Gupta (Director of Hoichoi) offered me this role, I was very nervous. I have seen Directors directing me on the sets but I had never got the opportunity to play one. I only had one inspiration while performing this part and that was Mahesh Bhatt sahab. I copied his persona totally and added my own touch.” said Paoli Dam. Hoi Choi is a story of a group of young theatre actors and their struggle to make a mark in the society where Paoli plays the Director.
Film maker Debarati Gupta decided to make a film on the decline of Group Theater in Bengal, HoiChoi obviously has raised a certain level of expectation among the audience. Going by the star-cast and Posters which are obviously very eye-catching, HoiChoi also managed to create a ripple before its release.
Paoli’s hair style in the movie is very interesting and critics and fans have different opinions about this new experimental look. The Kolkata Bangla Movie HoiChoi, in spite of having a very good plot could not utilize Paoli’s potential to the fullest. Co-stars Rahul and Priyanka have done their parts well though. The audience reaction of the movie was mixed as owed to the ensemble cast that the movie has, the fan base probably got divided quite a bit.
Director Debarati Gupta has done her best to make this movie class apart but in her efforts to portray theater well, has in many places lost out on the essence of cinema. Apart from the minor flaws, Debarati’s potential as a good film maker with clear concepts has been well highlighted by way of this new Bangla movie Hoi Choi.
A must watch; Hoi Choi is another movie made to match up the trend of the evolving Kolktata Tollywood Bengali film industry.
