Soulmate is a brave attempt to study  modern day relationship(s) in the backdrop of  urban India. Thus, do not expect mushy gushy romance, full of goon fights among other ingredients of teen romance stories. Instead we have two grown up individuals engaging themselves in heart-to-heart conversation at a place, which is away from the speedy life of Indian metros. Soulmate brings you near to the stark reality of life, unravels hidden past thus provides few great moments of cinematic thrills.

Sudip Mukherjee and Pratyusha plays the lead roles of two individuals enjoying some great time in and around the cozy beaches of Mandarmani. Both of them are effortless and it is widely appreciable on the screen. Sudip Mukherjee’s baritone voice added up to his on-screen personality, good to see him after a long time. Pratyusha is a completely different person over here, in the last film she was a troubled alienated housewife and over here, well find it out by yourself. Arijit Mukherjee is growing in a steady manner as a story-teller. This one looked like a commercial movie, but he keeps it very near to the ground. The balance is really nice over here. The backdrop of sunny beach provides visual delight, so does the background score. Cinematography has been smartly handled by Bappa Dasgupta. The editing has been very crispy, well it is a fine piece of work. The lead pairs steals away the acting spotlight from all the characters, simply overshadows them.
