New Bengali Film Britto Movie Review; An Average Fare but for the Talented Ena


Britto is a Bengali word which means a circle. This can refer to circle of life too. In this circle of life, comes deceit, love friendship and all the other human values and emotions. Recently released film Britto deals with these myriad human emotions.

Bitto begins with the marriage of Rony and Mrittika. As the film proceeds, we are shown that Rony is just the average guy with no special skill at his disposal and with no ambition in his life. He fails to keep his job and also earns a fixed income for his family. Mrittika who is mature for her age takes up the job of an escort and pulls the family out of the financial crisis. However she looks for love and due recognition, which she gets from Debdatta. She gets the opportunity to make her name as a singer. But can she go beyond her past life as an escort and make a new beginning? Does love come to her? Britto has the answer to all these questions.

Director Surajit Dhar’s narrative style has an element of restraint which makes it for an interesting watch. However the patience of the audience is also tested due to the dragging of many scenes and situations. One could have refrained from doing so. However one question that I have for the director is why does a woman from a lower middle class background have to resort to prostitution to fend for her family; does it not demean the woman who is capable of so much more? She may not be enough educated but there are always other respectable means of earning! You definitely need to start thinking out of the box Mr. Director!

The camera work by Amlan Dutta deserves a special mention. He has done a great job with the camera angles and this raises the film viewing experiences a few notches higher.

Gaurab Chatterjee’s background score and Shankha Bandopadhyay’s music is soothing and pleasing for the ears.

The biggest revelation in the film is none other than Ena Saha who delivers a credible performance as Mrittika. She plays the role of the twenty something wife with gusto and lights up the screen in the simple cotton saris, the oil smeared hair and the kohl rimmed eyes. The actress has come a long way from her television days. She truly justified her claim that the audiences will get to see her in a new avatar in this film. She surely lives up to the expectations.

Vikram as the good for nothing husband Rony is also good in his part. Joy as Debdutta is also a fitting addition to the acting list in the film. Soumitra Chatterjee and Alokananda Roy have nothing substantial to do in this film.

Overall, Britto with all its good and bad is neither a bad film nor an excellent one. It is an average film that could have been made sensational with a little bit of intelligent treatment. People may want to go to the theaters to watch Britto only if they want to watch the gorgeous Ena in an all new avatar as for the rest, it is all a below average fare that you may not want to waste your money on, especially when there is so much of Puja shopping yet to be done.

Interview: Actress Ena Saha on her New Bengali Movie ‘Britto’ and her Journey into Films


Having mesmerized the audience with her mind blowing performances in serials like Subhasini, Maa, Bou Kotha Kou and others, she stepped into films and did not waste a moment to make it big in the industry; she is none other than the breathtakingly beautiful and talented actress Ena Saha. The actress who made a mark with her role in the recently released Bengali Film Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 is gearing up for her next release Britto. Ena talks about her character in the film and her expectations from herself in a casual chat with Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent Priyanka Dutta. Excerpts…

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaYou were literally ruling the small screen before diving into films; what brought about the decision to shift and in this small time span how did Britto come about?

Ena Saha– I was doing a lot of serials at the time when the offers for film started to come. Initially I could not do it as time clashed or the directors did not allow me to do films. However I got selected for Raj Chakraborty’s Bojhena Se Bojhena film. Then Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 happened. It was during the promotions for Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 that I was doing the shooting for Britto.


Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaYou moved from television to films. How is the experience of working in the two mediums?

Ena Saha– Frankly, I have had a great time working in television and I am also having a great time working in films. I love both the mediums.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaNow that you are totally into films, what kind of projects would you agree to work in television again if offers came by?

Ena Saha– Well, an interesting project will be surely something that I will be taking up. I do not have any such special criteria in my mind for the selection of the project. The only criterion is that the project has to be interesting.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaTell us something about the character you play in Britto.

Ena Saha– I play the role of Mrittika who is a girl in her early twenties hailing from a lower middle class background. Despite her young age, she is mature. She always wants to move forward and when her husband Rony is unable to take the responsibility of the family, she carries the responsibility on her shoulders.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaCan you at all identify with Mrittika?

Ena Saha– There is no similarity actually. I am immature and confused. But the character that I play in the film is matured. She can take any decision instantly and this is something that I just cannot do.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaWhy did you take up this role?

Ena Saha– I have always been projected as a sweet, bubbly girl and this has now become something very obvious. So when this role was offered to me, I took it up as a challenge to see how well can I do some serious and matured stuff.


Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaHow was the experience of working with Vikram and Joy?

Ena Saha– Vikram, though completely mad to the power of infinity is a darling and a great co-artist who has supported me throughout the shoot of the film.

And for Joy da, he never behaved like a senior. He had gelled with so well and not for a single moment did he ever try to throw his weight around and intimidate us.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– You were highly appreciated for your role in Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 and your past performances has obviously raised the expectations of the audience. How do you think will the film do at the box office?

Ena Saha– I am under a lot of pressure and stress at the moment. I just hope that people will appreciate our efforts as we all have worked very hard for the film. I have already been getting wonderful responses from people via messages after the trailer launch and I just hope they like the film in a similar manner.


Britto releases on the 5th of September, 2014. Sholoana Bangaliana wishes Ena and the team of Britto all the Very Best and Hopes that the film will become a landmark, both in Ena’s career as well as the Bengali Film Industry.
