JANI DEKHA HOBE (2011) Bengali Movie Review: Misplaced Belief

Calcutta, Nov 25, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) All of us are aware of that old adage ‘Simple is Beautiful’. What most of us do not realize is that too much of simplicity might lead to undesirable results, particularly when it comes to film-making. Director Birsa Dasgupta, whose debut venture ‘033’ wowed us with its fresh, crisp and simple brand of storytelling, is back with his second offering ‘Jani Dekha Hobey’ (or, ‘Jani Dyakha Hawbey’, as the makers prefer to call it). Unfortunately, this time round, the man seems to have taken the value of simplicity in movie-making too much to heart.

Calcutta, Nov 23, 2011 (Databazar Media Ventures) Rahul is a low-key actor noted for his understated style of acting. His choice of roles and banners might be a little zigzaggy but that is routine for all rising actors. He comes from a theatre background but is now firmly rooted to cinema. He talks about his work in Ajob Prem Ebong Ekti Bus-er Golpo and why it did not do as well as everyone expected it to. This is a strikingly unusual film acquired by Databazaar Media Ventures for distribution, streaming etc for North America and Canada. Another film Kagojer Bou directed by Bappaditya Bandopadhyay has also been acquired by Databazaar Media ventures in which Rahul plays an important, off-beat lead.

Calcutta, Nov 22, 2011 (Databazaar Media Ventures) The introductory voice-over of the hero Nakul in Ajob Prem Ebong Ekti Bus-er Golpo immediately reminds the viewer, in a slightly different way, of Ritwik Ghatak’s Ajantrik. Ajantrik (1958) based on an unusual story by Subodh Ghosh, was one of the few films to win critical acclaim abroad. Georges Sadoul of France praised it as a ‘landmark in world cinema.’ Henry Langlois wished to have a print of the film for the French film archive.
