@svfsocial ‘s #loveaajkalporshu is the latest addition to the @hoichoi.tv film collection, a film which looked promising and fresh since announcement, but doomed at the box office. Here, I will tell you why.
Love Aaj Kal Porshu, as the title sounds is NOT just a love story. It’s a love story or an idea of a love story wrapped in a thriller. It may sound confusing and so is the film. The first twenty minutes of the film is very interesting. It starts off as a simple guy meets girl story, and takes a subtle twist which will leave you pondering, what’s going on? You will find yourself very engaged till the plot is revealed. And once it’s revealed you will find that the base on which the story has been written is very shallow. The basic concept of the film is very interesting and fresh which could have been developed into a lot many angles, but it did only let me down.
Owing to a couple of amazing films @pratimdgupta has behind him as director, #shahebbibigolaam and #macherjhol , I was expecting some good thrill that Bengali cinema has never seen before. However, it came around as an unconvincing narrative with quite a few loopholes in plot.
Performance by @paoli_dam is laudable. In fact, she is the show stopper. Arjun Chakraborty lacks the charm for a character like this. @madhumita_sarcar looks beautiful in every frame; she is one actor to look forward to. @chakrabarti_anirban , our #ekenbabu , is also in the film and shines like a bright star. Abhijit Guha understands his comic timing well and delivers a short but praise worthy performance.
Cinematography by @subhankarbhar has played the lead role in making the film what it looks like, delicious. Music by Arindam Chatterjee provides oxygen to the film.
Having said that, I would like to add something here. Had it been made properly, with logically justifying every layer and emotions of the characters, even then, it would have fell apart at the Tollywood Box Office as Bengali audience is yet not ready for this level. Kudos to the director for taking a chance and making a film like this, however I would loved it if the story completed the circle it needed to.
