বাংলা সিনেমা কে স্বপ্ন দেখতে শিখিয়েছিলেন মানিকবাবু। সেই সময় টাকে বাংলা সিনেমার স্বর্ণযুগ বলা হতো।
কারণ সেই প্রত্যেক স্বপ্ন দেখা কে সত্যি করার মতন Veterans দের নাম আজও বাংলা সিনেমার ইতিহাসে জ্বল জ্বল করছে।
তারপর থেকে Bengali Film Industry স্বপ্ন দেখা বন্ধ করেনি, তবে আফসোস ছিল তার পেছনে ছোটার মতো দৃঢ়তা বা ধক এতদিন কোনো director এর মধ্যে দেখা যায়নি তাই কোনো producerও risk টা নিতে পারেনি।
Cut to 2017,
আমি স্বর্ণযুগের সাথে তুলনায় যাচ্ছি না, তবে এটা বলতে দ্বিধা নেই বাংলা সিনেমা নতুন করে কিছু myth ভেঙে ইতিহাস লিখছে।
And carrying that all important flag is none other than Srijit Mukherjee…(দূরে দিগন্তে যুদ্ধ হাজার, মাটিতে পা ‘পড়তে লড়তে মরতে ভয় না পাওয়া’ রাজার).
All the deserving credits goes to each and everyone of team Srijit Mukherjee and SVF to make this much a challenging film possible that too with all the constraints a local film industry faces.
Now, coming to the film,Yeti Obhijaan is a never seen before cinematic experience for a bengali audience for its landscape, a visual treat like Chander Pahar was that pleases every eye .Courtesy the ever beautiful Swiss Alps and the best man behind the lens , Mr. Soumik Haldar.
The two best aspects of this puja release is the cinematography and the background score/music by Indradip Dasgupta.
You even take back the theme song when you leave the theaters.
Overall, performance-wise, the film successfully rides on the shoulders of Prosenjit-Aryaan as Kakababu-Santu and their conversations.
Their chemistry being a lot fresher and better this time around.
Though Aryaan still needs to cover a lot of grounds i feel.
About the rest of the casts , the notable mentions are Jishu as Rana, mim bidya as Miss Verma, Allex as Cane Shipton and Ferdous as Mr. Gupta (yes, Srijit continues reviving careers).
Amidst all these , the film I felt was a tad slow paced….it takes time to cling on to the main story (blame the lucrative picturesque locales that the director couldn’t resist to show)
The second half also takes time to pick up its form at the beginning.
But, having said all, the bottomline goes Feluda, Kakababu films are beyond judgements, they are emotions every bengalis possess.
They are our childhood.
Nowadays, a lot of people tend to give mandatory opinions without adequate Knowledge. That is quite Dangerous!! Its a request to them to get well informed before you speak.
And to those who are complaining a lack of suspense and thriller element in the film, I am sure they haven’t read about Kakababu.It is a Children’s adventure.
Expect wisely,you will never be disappointed.If you want thriller and suspense, Go watch Chotuskone and Baishey Srabon 😊.

P.S : Go and watch Yeti Obhijaan to relive your Anondomela days and also sit through the End scrolls to witness the ‘Thrilling’ Making video as the icing on the cake.
