Review: Two men fall in love with each others’ sisters. A confusion of sorts ensue. How loose ends are tied up is what the movie is all about.
Mistaken identities, ideal love and a whole lot of confusion. Goley Maley Pirit Koro Na, Aninda Bandyopadhyay’s comedy can be summed up in these three phrases. The film showed promising signs – it’s myriad plots and sub-plots are held together by a wittily written narrative – sadly, that’s not enough to create a blockbuster. There are stock characters – the forgetful governess, the bumbling cook, the country bumpkin uncle and love-struck women – but it’s the protagonists who let us down. Jishu Sengupta is the harassed son. A lot is expected of him – managing the family’s fortune in the village of Chyangrapur, looking for the ideal husband for his sister and even managing labour union problems. Unable to cope with these vicissitudes, Jishu flees to the city every weekend to meet his fictitious friend, Prem. As if one set of problems wasn’t enough back home, Jishu goes around looking for more in the city. He becomes ‘Prem’ and befriends city lad Ritwik Chakraborty. Payel, the lead actress, is Ritwik’s lovestruck sister, mad about Prem – the Salman Khan kind. But when she meets the Prem of the city, it’s ‘prem’ at first sight. Confused already? Here’s more. As if to balance two sides of the equation, the director makes Ritwik’s character let himself loose in Chyangrapur. There, quite predictable, he stumbles upon Jishu’s lovestruck sister who mistakes him for Prem, her Prem.
The first half of the film manages to set the premise for the second half by successfully transferring the characters where they ought to be in order for the plot to move ahead. The second half begins on a positive note. Comic relief in the form of Bratya Basu’s Nebu Kaka – the country bumpkin uncle and Ritwik’s interactions with Jishu’s family members keeps one engaged. The romantic numbers – Elo re elo prem elo jibone and the very retro Ding dong are melodious and hummable. The director is bang on target when it comes to shooting locations, flitting back and forth between Kolkata and North Bengal. The song, Elo re elo prem elo jibone, shot in a picturesque Pattaya, the narrative and a particular dream sequence are the only high points of this blockbuster that never was.
