New Bengali Movie Bonku Babu- Review,Poster, Trailer; An Out n Out Saswata Chatterjee Film

BonkuBabu-Bangla-Movie-ReviewWe live in the age of matchbox type families better known as nuclear families and the joint family system is fast dwindling. Tall skyscrapers have replaced the grand ancestral houses in which many a joint family used to reside earlier. The disintegration of the nuclear families and the side effects of this disintegration is what form the backdrop of the New Bengali Movie Bonku Babu.

The story of the film is about Bankim Chandra Chowdhury who is a retired police officer. His family consists of his wife Sarala, his two sons, daughter, two daughter-in-laws and his grandson. He is a strict and angry old man who maintains strict decorum in his household. Bonku Babu watches the sad state of affairs as joint families disintegrate all around him. This keeps him concerned and he strives even harder to keep his own family under one roof. His younger son Agniswar however decides to move away from the joint family system. What happens next? Is Bonku Babu successful in keeping his family under one roof is what forms the rest of the story.

Director Anindya Bikas Dutta makes a great debut and definitely deserves a pat on the back for the sparkling film that he has made. Grave matters have been handled confidently under the garb of humor. Issues like breaking down of joint families, not looking after old parents or promoters troubling common people for land for flats have been dealt with beautifully. The small issues which ultimately lead to the breakup of big families like watching of serials or spending time more with the spouses and not paying attention to the rest of the family have been dealt with fantastically in the film. The script is tight and binds the story in a great way.

Acting is the biggest high point of the film and with Saswata in the lead role as Bonku Babu, the director definitely had no reason to go wrong. Saswata is simply mind blowing as Bonku Babu. He breathes life into the character and I doubt whether any other actor could have played this character with such gusto and confidence. His acting is so strong that the other actors despite putting in their best fade under the aura of Bonku Babu. Had the audience not been aware of the film’s casting beforehand, I am sure that not many would have been able to identify that it is none other than Saswata Chatterjee playing the angry old man Bonku Babu. Hats off to Saswata for emoting with such fineness even with such a heavy makeup on! With his acting in Bonku Babu Mr. Chatterjee has indeed proven that he is an actor par excellence and is the pride of the Bengali Film Industry.

Laboni Sarkar as Sarala is a perfect foil to Bonku Babu. Laboni Sarkar as the quarrelsome wife of Bonku Babu further adds on to the old man’s charm. Arjun Chakraborty, Rajatava Dutta, Rupa and Arunima, all do justice to their roles as the sons and daughter-in-laws of Bonku Babu; but sorry folks you simply fade into the backdrop once Saswata makes his entry as Bonku Babu!

Music in the film by Debojyoti Mishra matches well with the feel of the film. Special mention must be made of the item song “Tul Tuli” which is sexy yet entertaining.

Bonku Babu is definitely a ‘Must Watch’ as it almost comes with a guarantee certificate of healthy entertainment. Go to the nearest theatres to watch this 70 year old “Angry Old Man” in action at the earliest.
