SURPRISE TWISTS ENTERTAIN – Kaache Aachho Tumi Bengali Film
For their venture into the world of films, the Siddiqui brothers have done quite well in their first film, Kaachhe Achho Tumi. The surprise twists and turns might sometimes appear sudden, but they come across as a pleasant surprise. The film begins with a pretty young girl (Swastika Mukherjee) searching desperately for her lover Sunny (Rohit), in vain. Her life revolves around her quest for Sunny much to the desperation of her older brother (Koushik Banerji) and his wife (Laboni Sarkar). They take her to a psychiatrist who advises them to take her for a holiday to Gorumara forests in North Bengal. They meet a bunch of young boys who befriend the three visitors. Among them is Rohit (Jisshu Sengupta) who is sympathetic to the feelings of the young girl. He tries to persuade her to believe that Sunny is dead but she is rigid in her belief. It is only when Sunny’s ex-fiancé (Parijat) shows her pictures of his dead body that she is convinced. Rohit by then has fallen in love with Swastika but she rejects his love to live with the memories of her first love. How she turns around and understands what place Rohit holds in her life is filled with a surprise twist that involves character fluxes as well as story shifts. What are these twists? That would be giving the game away.
Kaachhe Aachho Tumi is an entertaining film minus any item numbers, minus much violence and some wonderful songs not placed out of turn. Zubin Garg’s musical score is melodious and flowing. Jisshu is good but seems uncomfortable in certain scenes. Rohit as Sunny probably in his debut, has a wonderful physique and can shape up as a good action hero though he needs to work very hard on his emotional quotient. Swastika has the most author-backed role among everyone and does it well but the character gets into tedium after a point. Parijat in a debut performance is not good in the first half where she has strongly negative shades but is very good in the second half when she turns positive and supportive. The creamy layer goes entirely to Rajatava who for once, has a many-shaded character of an egoistic, cruel and diabolical industrialist whose hair turns white after the loss of his only child and tries to make amends in the end in his own way. It is a brilliant performance.
The film reinforces the necessity of a strong storyline filled with surprises to make a film work with the audience. The location shots at Gorumara are picturesque but marred by the scenes of idle gossip and shallow jokes exchanged between the girl’s brother and his wife on the one hand and Rohit’s batch of friends on the other. The friends are like second-thought extras introduced into the film for variety. The camera could have been more imaginative in exploring the forest-filled landscape of the north Bengal. All said and done however, Kaachhe Aaacho Tumi is an unexpectedly entertaining film.
