The Review

One tends to be choosy about friends, food, books and films. Thus, less number of film reviews on my blog. If I am not impressed with the movie, I won’t review it. So, you can understand that I liked the movie. Rony 2 is a noble attempt in terms of its story and the sociological angle. While the last instalment dealt with the aspect of loneliness in urban areas like Kolkata, Rony 2 dives further ahead. Om, the little guy essaying the titular role of Rony amazes me once again. The last review was about your calibre and you have done it once again over here. Sweta Tiwari, who essays the role of Rony’s mother is a surprise package. She seems to be very confident with her facial expressions especially when she looks towards the floor and takes her own time to introspect her son’s psyche.

Rony seems to be a very matured individual who wants to donate his materialistic stuff to an orphanage and after visiting the same, he realises the special children over there are hungry for love and attention and there is hardly ant difference between them and Rony. Ah, remember the song by Blue. “One Love is all we need.”

Rony 2 surpasses Rony in terms of technicalities like cinematography, music, background score and direction. Acting and screenplay have always been a strong point in Arijit Mukherjee’s films and they didn’t disappoint. All in all, it is a family movie with a great statement about nuclear families in Metropolitan cities. Above everything, it is an honest attempt to visualise the authentic pen-picture of people who are getting busy with careers and ignoring the warmth of near and dear ones.

Rating – 8/10

Pros

A feel-good script

Crisp screenplay and editing

Great acting by Om, Sweta Tiwari and the guy in the orphanage who paints well.

The sweet camaraderie between Title and Rony

The scene where Rony watches a small child having some nice time the grandmother and Rony feels the emptiness in his life

The shift between Hindi, Bengali and English in the screenplay, that is how an educated Urban Families talk, scream, shout among others.

Cons

Rony needed more silence in a few scenes, rather than dialogues which could have been avoided.

Watch it

The Film Craft

I never review a book or a movie unless and until I’m impressed by the art in totality. So yes, I enjoyed watching Arijit Mukherjee, Yeh Aashiqui. One of the most important aspects of Yeh Aashiqui is the relevance to the modern world. Art cannot be created in isolation to the present society, well some choose to ignore it, they are free to do it. But Mr.Mukherjee has chosen to work on the social aspects like the loneliness of a kid in a metropolitan(Rony), Suicidal tendencies( Life) among others. This time he ventured into the loneliness of an urban house-wife. We are the generation who are glued to the social media and in the process, we chose to ignore our near and dear ones in the vicinity. Social media has killed the distances and somewhere down the lane, it is creating tensed situations between two individuals. The story is predictable and that is where Arijit Mukherjee wins as a director, he knows how to narrate a story which is already predictable to the audience. I will give a thumbs up to the neat execution of the film.

Arijit Mukherjee has been technically well groomed with other aspects of the filmmaking, thus there were brilliant close up shots, the juxtaposition of black & white along with coloured sequences. Cinema is a big canvas and the painting has been neatly painted over here. Thus, full marks to Bappa Dasgupta(Cinematographer) and Tamal Chakraborty( Editor) for your contribution to Yeh Aashiqui.

The little protagonist of Rony is back in this venture and he is very promising over here. You have a long way to go. He knows how to emote without dialogues. Om, keep it up. Saikat Das gives a clean performance as a dutiful husband and doting father. He keeps it real over here. He is careful and rude, he has both the sides. The script did not glorify him, instead, it showed both the negative and positive aspects of man dwindling between office and home. He is the most powerful character of the film.

Pratyusha’s portrayal as the lonely wife looks commendable. She excelled in the close-up shots and dialogue delivery technique has been very confusing. She is lonely , she is very confused and the dialogue delivery has been blended well with the confused state of mind. Confusion has been beautifully dealt by the female lead.

You know what ? Loyalty is the most beautiful thing in the world.

I loved the climax. Thankfully, the film does not preach, instead, it shows what is happening and offers a solution.  Yeh Aashiqui is a noble film, go to Arijit Official Youtube Channel and watch it.

If you agree with my views, leave a comment

If not, please get lost..kidding..feel free to criticise.

Pros

The Climax has been beautifully handled.

Direction, Editing, Cinematography..loved them

Good usage of background score.

Relevant social subject.

Commendable supporting cast.

Cons

The opening song could have been shorter in length.

 

Ratings – 8/10

সহজ থেকে সহজতর হয়েছে যোগাযোগ ব্যবস্থা, জটিলতার খোলসে আজ আর আটকে নেই ব্যবসা বাণিজ্য, পরিবেশ বান্ধব সফটওয়্যার নিয়ে এসেছে কাগজের ন্যূনতম ব্যবহার। এক কথায় বলতে গেলে, প্রযুক্তি বিদ্যার বিপুল অগ্রসর যোগাযোগ ব্যবস্থায় এবং ব্যবসা বাণিজ্যে যুগান্তকারী বিপ্লব  ঘটিয়েছে।
 
প্রযুক্তি বিদ্যা মানুষের দৈনন্দিন জীবনে এনেছে বিস্ময়কর পরিবর্তন এবং ঘুচিয়েছে ভৌগোলিক দূরত্ব। এখন আর  অন্তরায় নয় একের সঙ্গে অপরের যোগাযোগের ক্ষেত্রে, গতানুগতিক জীবনে বৈচিত্র নিয়ে এসেছে হোয়াটস অ্যাপ, ফেসবুক ও ম্যাসেঞ্জার। অনেক অজানা তথ্য মানুষ আজ জানতে পারছে হোয়াইটস অ্যাপ, ফেসবুকের মাধ্যমে, অনেকাংশে মানুষের ভুল বোঝাবুঝির নিষ্পত্তি হয়ে যাচ্ছে এই সামাজিক যোগাযোগ রক্ষার মাধ্যমে যাকে ইংরাজি পরিভাষায় বলা হয় “সোশ্যাল মিডিয়া”।
 
দুর্ভাগ্যবশতঃ  কিছু সংখ্যক বিবেকবর্জিত মানুষ তাদের বিকৃত রুচির পরিতৃপ্তির জন্য এই সামাজিক যোগাযোগ রক্ষার মাধ্যম কে ব্যবহার করছে, বিশেষ করে মহিলাদের ক্ষেত্রে এবং এর ফলস্বরূপ কতিপয় মহিলা এই “সোশ্যাল মিডিয়া” থেকে নিজেদের কে সরিয়ে রাখছেন। 
 
এই স্বল্প দৈর্ঘ্যের ছবির মুখ্য নারীর চরিত্রে তৃষা যিনি একাকীত্বের শিকার, তিনিও প্রথমে মানসিক দ্বন্দের মধ্যে ছিল “সোশ্যাল মিডিয়া”-র সঙ্গে নিজেকে জড়িত করবার বিষয়ে, কিন্তু পরে সাহস করে এগিয়ে এসে ফেসবুকে যুক্ত হয়ে একাকীত্বের করাল গ্রাস থেকে নিজেকে মুক্ত করে এবং স্বামী সৈকতের সঙ্গে ভুল বোঝাবুঝির অবসান ঘটিয়ে সুখি  দাম্পত্য জীবনযাপন করতে শুরু করে।

The Movie Review

Arijit Mukherjee’s latest directorial venture Life is all about loving your life and winning over negativity on all aspects. He keeps his objective short and sweet just like his first short film Rony which dealt with the alienation of an urban child from his parents. Life comes up with a commendable opening sequence where the director introduces a fast moving city embedded in powerful neon lights and people moving to and fro from here to there across the screen. There are some well captured moments where one of the characters picks up a broken piece of glass which signifies the broken state of the human soul in an urban landscape; thumbs up for using such imagery over here.

I’m thoroughly impressed by the editing of Tamal Chakraborty’s editing throughout the entire course of narration and yes Bappa DasGupta’s cinematography also deserves applause. Mr Mukherjee cleverly used special effects (read VFX) to portray a psychedelic situation where one of the characters converse from a place too far from the city of Kolkata. You need to find out that place by watching this drama of life. There are two characters over here in the film, a lonely depressed working woman in the huge metropolitan and a mysterious character from a place too near yet too far away. It is their endearing and relatable conversations which lights up the laptop screen. The dialogues are realistic and Arijit Mukherjee’s delicate handling of Tanmoy De’s storyline doesn’t lose focus or drifts away from the core.

The film discussed the issue of depression and suicidal tendencies among the urban youth and comes up with an optimistic message in the end .The best part of the movie Life is that it doesn’t preach anything but portrays the grim reality of death. Payel Majumder and Ayush Mukherjee comes up with convincing acts in the film and doesn’t give any major reason to dislike. Though I personally feel, the dialogue deliveries could have been better especially the voice over of the lead character. Nevertheless, the movie is a great attempt to draw our attention to towards suicide and clinical depression and wiping out the vague notion about the utopia of after-life. Thumbs up to the entire team of the Life for coming up with a fine piece of art. Do watch it. Do not miss this short film.

Pros

Relatable Storyline.

Strong Social Statement.

Smart Editing, Cinematography, VFX.

Tight Screenplay and direction.

Lovely Background score

Good Facial Expressions and Body Language by the Lead Characters.

Commendable & Economical Production Design

Cons

Dialogue delivery in few scenes (personal feeling).

The opening credit song didn’t leave a mark.

Ratings – 8.5/10

RONY : A Movie Review


Arjit Mukherjee’s short film RONY is about urban alienation of a single child . Parents are busy with earning money and securing the financial future of their child while the little one fights the gruesome loneliness . You cannot blame the parents because they are doing it for their kid and you cannot blame the child , because he/ she need the emotional support of the parents.

The film scores high on the emotional aspects and the strong message it provides to it’s audience that the most important thing you can give to your child is  TIME . They need to grow up with parents not alone or by themselves. The kid emotes throughout the film with his eyes and facial features . There are hardly any face to face conversations between the parents and the child , thanks to the mobile phone – it has successfully evaded the need of human touch and physical presence.

The Mom and Dad tries to bribe the kid with toys and choclates instead of their time and beleive me it is a grim reality, Arijit Mukherjee deserves a thumbs up for such  acute observation of these minute details. Cinematography is commendable and the screenplay is accurate. The length could have been chopped to fifteen minutes to avoid boredom in the end . The song could have been avoided , no doubt its a good one though.

It raises the issues like the need of siblings and grandparents in the house . Nuclear Family is the trend but yes it comes with a dose of problems. Full marks to honest movie making and a noble intention. Catch the movie..
