HAAR MANA HAAR (2013) Indian Tollywood Kolkata Bangla New Movie Wallpaper Poster

Kolkata, May 27 (Washington Bangla Radio): It is strangely in fashion both among the directors of Tollywood and Bollywood to use the names of blockbuster films of the past and make remakes or whatever of them. But only a few of them are able to live to the names. The same is the case with the recently released film Har Mana Har which is the namesake of a Uttam Kumar film. The name is the only similarity between the two films.

The story of the Kolkata Bangla movie can be summed up in a few lines. A diamond merchant by the name of Aurobindo De Souza buys a diamond ring of Queen Victoria. He was supposed to give this diamond ring to a smuggler named Mr. Chang. However on his way to hand over Mr. Chang the ring, he gets murdered by his rival Afzal.

Juli (Priyanka), his daughter was with him and gets injured in this event. Akash (Shome Ray Chowdhury), a singer and Robi (Debangshu), a lyricist cum composer get hold of the ring. They decide to sell off the ring and they take the help of one Samar Sen to do it.

It is revealed in the course of the film that Samar Sen is a friend of the murdered Aurobindo De Souza. The two boys meet Samar’s daughter Seema (Trisha). They save her life when Afzal tries to kidnap her. As a result of this, Seema falls in love with the singer Akash. Juli meets Akash at the birthday party and she assumes him to be the murderer of her father. What happens next forms the rest of the film Har Mana Har.

Kankan Bhattacharjee’s story is full of utter confusion and makes the audience discombobulated. What they will be unable to understand is the reason why every girl and boy in the film is falling in love. The director himself is unclear about what exactly he wants from the film. Is this a love story or a crime thriller? Or is it just a confused mixup? The story runs all over the place.

Madhu Mani, the music director of the Indian Bangla movie fails to impress us with his songs. They are equally bad and contribute in a huge way to make the film a bad fare for the audience.

June Banerjee, Kunal Ganjawala and Javed Ali are some of the star names who have lent their voices to the songs, but they do not strike a chord in your heart. The film has an item song by Rituparna Sengupta. But one simply fails to understand why she was featured in such a huge way in all the posters. It simply does not work as neither the film works and nor does Rituparna look good in the item song.

Shome Ray Chowdhury, Debangshu Roy, Priyanka Halder and Trisha seem to be in a competition for the worst actor trophy. They are all equally bad in front of the camera. They are too loud at times or else too stocky in their expressions. It is strange actors like Dipankar De and Kharaj Mukhopadhyay agree to do such films. They have the experience to understand what story will work and what will not. It feels really bad when one sees them as a part of such movies.

Har Mana Har is a Tollywood movie which is best avoided by the audience. It neither has a good story nor good songs to keep you glued to your seats. The choice is yours.
