Eti (2008) Bengali Film Review

Eti is a Bengali Film based on a MMS scandel. It is more like a routine love story where a bunch of college-goers get together, play pranks and make merry but are caught unawares? or rather with their pants down ? by the subsequent twists and turns. By the end of it, Eti becomes a complex story too simply told.

Eti is a Bengali Film based on a MMS scandal. It is more like a routine love story where a bunch of college-goers get together, play pranks and make merry but are caught unawares? or rather with their pants down ? by the subsequent twists and turns. By the end of it, Eti becomes a complex story too simply told. At the centre of all the action is Gourab, who plays the super cool Sanjoy in love with Shreya (Roopali). The couple, along with two other couples and a still-single friend, plan a holiday in Darjeeling. The gang of friends (which boasts familiar faces from TV and theatre) is meant to have a blast on the road but the foolish gags and lukewarm dialogues slacken the pace.Gourab and Shreya get cosy and make the mistake of recording their intimate moments on a handycam. The sequence is candidly filmed with Gourab caressing Roopali?s bare back as they make love on satin sheets. But the director does desist from turning the film into a sleaze fest.What had started off as a teen romance changes track post-interval. Things take an ugly turn when the teenagers get sucked into a porn racket.A giggling, squealing Roopali takes time to get under the skin of her character. Gourab does better as a mischievous fun-loving youth, except for the times when he bursts into tears as things go awry.Of the rest, Bhaswar tries to be the friend-philosopher-guide to his pals; his bright and chirpy lady love Sweta livens up things a bit. Swaralipi fits in as a silly romantic, while Dhruv, the guy without a girlfriend, is hardly funny.But the wafer-thin plot struggling to hold the chain of sensational events takes a toll on the film. The pedestrian treatment does not help matters. Digitally shot, Eti has the feel of a home video with shoddy editing and jerky camera movements.
