Srijit Mukherji doens't fail to impress this time
Srijit Mukjerji the mind behind the brilliant films like 'Chotushkone' ( a gripping thriller) or 'Hemlock Society' ( a dark comedy ) seemed to have lost his mojo for the last few films. Ventures like 'Nirbak' ' Bugum Jaan' and more recently 'Yeti Obhijaan' were very disappointing indeed. But this time he has managed to deliver a yet delightful film about how far a father can go to make her dying daughter's last wish to come true. It's refreshing to watch Jishu Sengupta on screen, he seems to have evolved a lot as an actor in the past few years. Even though the film is full of legendary actors like Anjan Dutta it is actually Sara Sengupta essaying the title role of Uma who steals the show. Anyone who is from Kolkata and has witnessed Durja puja here will know what an impossible job it is to create a 'fake durga puja' in kolkata. But that's fine as Srijit never lets us ask a lot of question about the possibility of this happening. Though the film is genuinely a very good film, the colfilcts at times feel a little repetitive and a few characters are outlandishly too bad and cruel, and one particular sudden change of heart is a little unconvincing. But one cannot disagree that Srijit Mukherji is back in form and boy what a nice film he has made.
