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.

Uttam Kumar Suchitra Sen Film Festival Organized to Mark Mahanayak’s 34th Death Anniversary


The evergreen pair of Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen has delivered a huge number of hits. The films that they have acted in have become some of the milestone films in the history of Tollywood and also of Indian cinema. This evergreen pair never fails to recreate the magic whenever they come together on the big screen. Both the actors are now dead. However to pay tribute to Uttam Kumar on his 34th death anniversary and also to the late actress Suchitra Sen, Silpi Songsod organized the Uttam-Suchitra Film Festival. Present at the film festival inauguration ceremony were Gautam Ghoshe, Dulal Lahiri, Madhavi Mukherjee, Ranjan Bandopadhyay, Ratna Ghoshal, Reshmi Ghosh, Gautam Sushmit, Sanghamitra Banerjee and Shakuntala Barua. The inaugural film shown was Saare Chuattor.


Speaking at the occasion, Gautam Ghosh said “This is indeed a great honor for any artist to get so much recognition even after his death 34 years ago. The fact that he is so popular among the people till date shows how talented a person he was. I will really urge the distributors to release the films of Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen on a commercial level. One will be able to judge and also understand the international standard of his acting”.

Shakuntala Barua reminisced about her acting days with Uttam Kumar. “I used to go back from shooting and go back and tell my husband that my hero will be Samit Bhanja. The other day I would tell the name of someone else. But when I finally told the final name of the hero as Uttam Kumar, my husband was apprehensive and asked me to cancel the shooting. He was so handsome that fathers and husbands feared their wives and daughters would melt after seeing him”.


The other films which will be shown during the course of the film festival are Sagarika, Alo Amar Alo, Indrani, Pothe Holo Deri, Agniporikha, Surjotoron, Harano Sur, Sadanander Mela, Sabar Upore and others. The film festival will continue till the 30th of July, 2014 at Nandan 1.
