Stellar of a performance!
Kangana, u beauty 🙂
Whether its Tanu or Datto, banno tera swagger was really sexy!
With the way she carried off Kusum, walked away with the film.
And aptly supported by winner acts of Maddy,Ayyub,Jimmy & Swara Bhaskar.
Though Swara & Ayyub didn’t get much screen space this time but was enough to leave an imprint.I personally think Swara should be used more often in films, she is quite a talent.
And kudos to Deepak Dobriyal for his comic timings & wit.
Summing it up, Anand L Rai directs another superb family entertainer with heart with catchy dialogues & GOOD Screenplay..
& wickedly gets away without showing double role in one lens’ frame not for once..
Songs are good though the baraat song by tanu was unnecessary.
In short,Kangana’s a Midas with her recent form.




A Bitter-Sweet family drama of an Old but Cranky Man, Bhaskar Banerjee..err..SORRY!!..’BHASKOR‘ Banerjee suffering from Constipation in his Second Childhood & his ‘non-virgin’ self-independent Bengali daughter-cum-Guardian PIKU..

The film resembles any Indian rather bengali family,such is it’s SiMPLICITY. And if you are a bengali you will surely enjoy every frame of it no matter in which corner of the world you are right now. The Portrayal of Kolkata & its northern bylanes of Shyambazar shows director’s roots belongs right here.The beauty of the city comes across with suh Perfection.

Shoojit Sircar has cleverly presented a very predictable & plain storyline with such brilliant execution thanks to Superb performances by AMITABH BACHCHAN & DEEPIKA PADUKONE, aptly supported by Irrfan Khan as Rana, a Sane Outsider witnessing an insane family PNPCs..

The blend or mixture of emotions essayed by DeePiku is Sublime whether it was the unspoken feelings towards Rana or Scolding her father, she rightly steals what rather is an Out & Out AMITABH BACHCHAN Show.
The Music is a Big Plus marking the Bolly debut of our local boy, Mr. Anupam Roy.Apart from Mermerizing Bezubaan & the Journey Song,the best part of the film is it’s Background Score with those soulful Tanpura tunes.

Overall, with its share of flaws here & there,the film may not be that popular all over India still it remains an Emotional ‘Motion’ Picture..close to my Heart.

Special Mention : Mousumi Chatterjee for adding much needed refreshment in parts.
I Rate –3.5/5



Have seen many a love stories on Screen but when it comes to Master Craftsman Srijit Mukherji, love stories had to have a twist..With an out of the box never-seen-before concept..Truly an experimental film,only one of its kind that teaches the true essence of LOVE and its whole definition with sensational CAMERAWORK by who else, Mr. Soumik Halder (Kudos prapti..)
A brilliant apt entitlement..and a bang on tag line summed up to a philosophical surrealistic movie.Watching it is an exploration and discovery of various muted emotions that our surroundings has to offer..Beauty of Nature.
Jagadish Chandra bole gechhilen,Srijit ki osadharon vabe byakto korlen..
Basically he reinterpreted four universal truths in this world and plays with his favourite subject i.e DEATH smile emoticon
Also An excellent tribute to iconic romantic tracks of bollywood interwoven in the last plot.
The film is different and not his Genre ofcourse so Definitely not everybody’s cup of tea but a representative of culturally rich INDIAN Cinema.
Watch out for the GEM of a scene..Lust of the Tree..Hat’s Off!!
