New Bengali Film 89 Review, Premiere Pics; An Edgy Thriller that Entertains and Excites, Must Watch!

“Those eyes !! Those very eyes are everywhere. They seem to haunt me…” said Purba to anti-terrorist squad inspector Anup. A scene from the recently released psycho-thriller film 89 is what I am describing here. Manoj Michigan’s new psycho-thriller which released on Friday is inspired by Hollywood films like Silence of the Lambs.

The film begins with Purba, a psychologist being the sole witness of a bomb blast and her helping the anti terrorist squad to catch the criminals responsible for the blast. She meets Anup, an inspector working with the squad and a friendship blossoms. However certain incidents become the reason for the cause of turmoil in Purba’s life. What are the reasons for the mental turmoil? Can she figure it out? The film answers them beautifully.

After the hugely successful comedy film Damadol, Manoj Michigan’s 89 is surely a worthy successor to his earlier directed film. The director keeps the narrative simple. The going back and forth between times is dealt aptly so as not to confuse the audiences. The linking of Purba’s mental troubles aptly with the serial killer deserves praise. Not a single moment in the film will make you feel bored. Things keep on happening one after the other. The director must also be congratulated for dealing with the direction as well as the production department with much élan.

DOP Supriyo Dutta who has again worked with the director after Damadol has done wonders with the camera. The light and shade play in the cell where the serial killer Sabyasachi is kept seriously gives goosebumps. A Hollywood-ish effect surely pervades in the treatment of the film. The use of black and white in some of the scenes also adds another level to the film.

Music by Raja Narayan Deb is a perfect fitting to the psycho-thriller. Without good background score, the story would not have been so effective for the audiences watching the film.

Acting is one of the high points of this film. Shataf as Anup and Raima Sen as Dr. Purba do a good job in the film. Shataf has a good screen presence and should be utilized more by the directors of the industry. Raima after her stint as the cardiologist in the film Hrid Majharey does justice to the role of the psychologist. Barun Chanda as Dr. Mullick also is apt for the role. However the actor who steals the show despite having lesser scenes than the others is Saswata Chatterjee. If the actor scared you as the killer Bob Biswas in Bollywood film Kahaani, he will give you nightmares with his role as Sabyasachi. It takes immense courage to give life to such a character. Hats off to Apu da for the flawless acting and surely those eyes will haunt many seated in the audience after they leave the hall.

Manoj Michigan’s psycho-thriller 89 is a film worth taking a trip to the hall. And more so for people interested in numerology!!
