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

Britto-Movie-Review

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.

Bengali Movie Ei Raat Tomar Amar Review, Poster, Trailer, Premiere Video

Bengali-Movie-ReviewLast week a Bengali film Hrid Majharey paid tribute to the Bard, William Shakespeare and this week a film releases which was inspired by one of the poems of Robert Browning. The film I am speaking about is New Bengali movie Ei Raat Tomar Amar which is based loosely on Porphyria’s Lover. The premiere of this film took place at Priya cinemas in the presence of the film’s crew comprising of actors Meghna Halder, Priyangshu Chatterjee, director Supriyo-Soummo and others like actor Aryann Bhowmick, designer Rajlakshmi and designer Gautam Ghoshe.

The story of the film is about childhood lovers Arya and Nivedita. They have grown up together and from a very tender age have harbored feelings of love for each other. However as luck would have it, they get separated due to Nivedita’s parents moving to a new house in a different locality. However their love remains. Arya meanwhile becomes a victim of an accident and develops a problem in walking. As a result the match between Arya and Nivedita is not accepted by Nivedita’s parents. They select a good and well settled boy for their only daughter. However Nivedita goes to meet Arya for the last time at his house and they spend time reminiscing about past days. They make love and Arya strangles her with her own long tresses. What happens next? Is Arya caught by the police? The film answers them all.

Director duo Soummo-Supriyo’s inspirations came from Robert Browning’s poem, Porphyria’s Lover. A slight trace of Browning’s other poem “The last Ride Together” can also be found in this film. The sense of Carpe Diem evident in the the poem has been used as the basis of this film. The feeling that this is their last meeting together and they must seize every moment has been shown in the film. For those who have already read the poem, they already know the outcome at the end. Hence it would have been better had the director duo tried to present the story in a different manner. That would have retained the interest of the audience till the end. Many sitting in the audience were just waiting when the hero would strangle the heroine. There is a déjà vu feeling to it. The problem with these literary stories is that many people have read them and unless you present it differently it becomes an arduous job for the audience to retain the interest levels. The complicacies of love life shown in the Abir-Raima starrer romantic saga Hrid Majharey compelled the audience to empathize with the couple and also feel for them but the makers of Ei Raat Tomar Amar could not evoke any such feelings in the hearts of the audience. A person seated in the audience will hardly feel any sympathy for this duo. However I will also like to add, when compared with the last film that this director duo made Sare Chuattor Ghoshpara, this is indeed a better film.

Some loopholes in the story also strike out. When Nivedita’s family members were searching for her, they go to every other place looking for their daughter but leave the most obvious place- Arya’s house which was obviously quite illogical.

Acting wise Priyangshu and Meghna have done a good job. As the lovers who are meeting for the last time, they spark a good chemistry. But they fail to connect with the audience in more ways than one.

Music by Amit Dasgupta is quite pleasing. Canvase Monalisa, Ei raat tomar amar, Humse milne tum aaye are good numbers and suit the film quite well. However the song Sohag Chand Bodoni which has been given a remix touch does not sound good. It would have been better had the music director left the song as it is for some songs are better left with their original flavor.

Ei Raat Tomar Amar will offer nothing new and there is a déjà-vu feeling to the whole film.

Rating-2/5
