Only few weeks back we have seen the big release of Jisshu-Koel starred “LOVE” directed by Ringo. A superb romantic movie with great camera work, dialogs, locations and what not. Koel did excellent work in LOVE. LOVE is one of the few of recent Bengali films that was not copied from South Movie Hits. The movie did not do very well, possibly since the movie was specially targeted towards city people. It was anyway a story with a sad ending!
Well, now the HIT couple Jisshu Sengupta – Koel Mullick is back again this Friday to rock Calcutta with yet another Bengali Feature Film “ Bor Ashbe Ekhuni“. This is also a nice movie directed by Rangan Chakraborty and produced by Bangla Talkies. Jisshu Sengupta plays a role of modern software engineer while Koel plays the role of a girl with a rural/semi-urban background. Jisshu falls in love with Koel at first sight. Koel, with nothing but a career in her mind, was looking for an apartment in the city, but being a young unmarried lady, could not manage to find any. She ties up with Jisshu Sengupta to play a real-life drama of husband and wife in order to get an apartment. However, they promise not to sleep together during their stay. Kanchan Mullick has done excellent work as Jisshu Sengupta’s friend in Bor Ashbe Ekhuni. He plays the role of a cameraman who works in TV serials. The song “Dol Dol Doluni, Bor Ashbe Ekhuni” is going to be a popular hit number for sure.
The movie is a remake of super hit Priyadarshan comedy ‘Golmal’!
Review and Storyline
Director: Rangan Chakraborty
The gist of the movie Bor Ashbe Ekhuni
Kanchan Mullick is jobless. He is a photographer and staying with Jisshu Sengupta while looking for jobs. Jisshu is Abhi is the film. A very simple engineer who is very calorie concious too!
“Sokal 9 ta manei Radio Mirchi-te Ami Mitil Niye Esechi Bhalobasar Gaan” – Mitin keeps practicing her speeches at the girls hostel where she is staying. During her early period of stay, she even sings some songs to cheer up her friends:
Sombare Bhalobasa Chaina Chaina Chaina, Chaina Re
Prem Name Khela, Jhamela Jhamela
Jene-Sune Oi Pothe Jaina Jaina, Na Na Re.
However after few days she starts to realize that she needs a place to stay without noise and problems of hostel life. She and her good friend (Mallika) start searching for a cheap place to stay. However, none of the hom-owners are ready to rent their property to an unmarried single “female”!
Finally she comes to an apartment owned by a widow (Tanima Sen). Who keeps saying “Ki Kando” all the time. However, after showing the apartment in great detail, she asks who are going to stay at her place and also asks where is Mitil’s husband. Mitil could not let the apartment go just because she is not married. So she replies that she is going to get married next month so looking for a place to say in advance. The landlady finally accepts to rent her the house.
Mitil (Koel Mullick) and her friend then come to a Bar to drink some coffee. However the Bar worker would not allow them as they are not accompanied by some gents. She sunnenly finds Jisshu Sengupta (Abhi) and Kanchan Mullick sitting at a table a drinking bear. She decides to sit with them and drinks some bear for the first time in her life. However she gets totally drunk and we find another song “Nesha Nesha …. Eto Boro E Sohor, Khunjchi Ami Ekta Ghar/ Eto Boro E Sohor, Khunchi Ami Ekta BOR”! Mitil (Koel Mullick) starts dancing at Kolkata srteet and Jisshu Sengupta tries to calm her down.
She wakes up next morning and calls Jisshu Sengupta. She asks Jisshu to meet her this evening. Mitil (Koel Mullick) apologizes about her drunken behavior last night. Then she asks Jisshu for help and she offered some money for the deal. Jisshu Sengupta enjoyes Mitil (Koel Mullick) speaking and accepts her proposal. He is already in love with Mitil.
On the other hand, Kanchan Mullick tries her luck with Mitil’s friend.
Jisshu Sengupta has to go through a fake marriage ceremony to convince the land lady that Mitil is really engaged and getting married. Even the marriage register remained fake. Jisshu is extremely happy with his fake marriage with Mitil while Miltil is very excited with her future. Now the landlady won’t disturb her anymore.
Mitil (Koel Mullick) has a morning program with Radio Mirchi next morning and asks Jisshu Sengupta to help her with it. Jisshu Sengupta gives her idea about the morning show “Wake Up To Dreas” – Bhorer Swopnogulo Sob Bhenge Jabe Ta Keno? The show becomes very successful.
Mitil comes back home and meets Jisshu Sengupta. She wishes to eat out, but Jisshu Sengupta says NO. Jisshu Sengupta cooks food for her while we listen to another romantic song ” Tomake Na Lekha Chithita Dak Bakser Ek Kone”.
Then the cooking continues for days.
Jisshu stays with Koel all day and leaves at night every day. One day, Mitil (Koel Mullick) gets really sick at night and the land lady asks Jisshu Sengupta to come and take care of her. He takes care of her. He even goes to Radio Mirchi to cover Mitil. He does the show and incidentally Mitil’s parents hears the show. They become very skeptical about Abhi (Jisshu Sengupta) after hearing the song “Tomake Na Lekha Chithi Ta Dak Baker Ek Kone” (2nd time in the movie) by him.

However, Jisshu Sengupta starts spending nights speeping at couches at Keol’s Apartment. One day, the land lady asks Mitil (Koel Mullick) if she is expecting a bay soon. The comment by the land lady makes her tense and she starts thinking about it. She decides that she should not play the game of husband and wife game any more. She comes to discuss with her friend. Her friend suggests that Koel can actually marry Jisshu Sengupta and make the story a reality, However, she is not convinced.
Koel comes back home and asks Abhi (Jisshu Sengupta) to leave as she thinks the deal with Jisshu Sengupta is not working anymore. She does not realize that she hurts Jisshu’s feeling who is madly in love with her.
Abhi (Jisshu Sengupta) leavs Mitil (Koel Mullick) without any word with pain and while walking down the road he sees a new wed couple on the road. He imagines himself to be the bride and the director introduces the title song of the movie “Bor Ashbe Ekhuni” into the movie.
Meanwhile Mitil’s mom calls Mitil’s land lady after trying her cellphone. Mitil’s land lady picks up the phone and describes all about the registry marriage of Mitil with Abhi and how much she missed Mitil’s mom that day. Mitil’s mom gets really confused and forces Mitil’s father to come to Kolkata to investigate the matter.
