Rating: 3.5/5

tale: The mysterious go back of Raja Mahendra Kumar Chowdhury (Jisshu U Sengupta), the second prince of the Bikrampur estate, spurs a debate and a decades-long courtroom case. He returns as a Naga sanyasi after 12 years to assert his country. however is he the one? Or is he an impostor?
evaluate: non secular awakening is not an ordinary affair. Renouncing the fabric requires a certain richness of coronary heart. Braving lifestyles’s storms desires internal serenity. this can sound like a speak on spirituality however while a true tale is tailored on screen maintaining its essence, adding dollops of drama and developing moments of emotional connect — it's far entertainment that’s eloquent.
Srijit Mukherji’s Ek Je Chhilo Raja — touted as Bengali cinema’s magnum opus this yr — attempted to spellbind the audience with the captivating story of the Bhawal sanyasi. And it made a cinematic adventure that introduced to lifestyles history thru one of the most fascinating stories in Bengal. With a story like that in hand, who wishes to fear?
The director clearly does because an awesome tale needs an equally top screenplay and appearing. Ek Je Chhilo Raja has both in abundance. a sequence of equipped performances from Jisshu, Anirban, Jaya, Rudranil and Rajnandini were well supported with a script that etched out every character well, regardless of the display screen timings. scenes of different emotional tones – the one in which Jaya, who performs Jisshu’s sister, expresses her deep affection for her mejhda and the only in which Jisshu begs for a dignified demise from his brother-in-regulation Anirban and own family doctor Rudranil – stand out. They tug at your coronary heart strings with out performing over the top. however the question remains, how near are they to the data.
And while there are lots of such scenes, the film isn't always a tearjerker. It alternatively permits you to objectively view the adventure of the characters, empathise with their selections and receive them with all their flaws. whether it’s Jaya’s impeccable bangal bhasha and smooth emotions, Jisshu’s womanising approaches, religious awakening or conflict to come to phrases with the material global, you'll not relate but you may reason.
Characters played through Anjan Dutt and Aparna Sen are possibly the maximum relatable ones and via being so constitutes of the maximum a ways-fetched portion in the film. A, it’s not a court drama. It’s plain drama. There’s a number of television serial-like TRP-inducing moments, that have little or no to do with real prison complaints. B, it looks and sounds all too present day for the duration shown. The nationalist sentiments and feminist shades in their dialogues sound compelled. they are greater like a distanced couple interacting in modern instances. yet, you will enjoy the breather.
not which you want a few respite as it’s a backbone-chilling murder mystery. It’s no longer. It’s simply that the deep, penetrating emotional exchanges to this point within the film see a lighter tone. And that is also every other scoring factor for the film. It makes use of human emotions and all-feasible relationships well by means of dint of its storytelling.
Actors make a contribution in making what could have been an everyday narration into a poignant story. Jisshu gets the entire screen time to surpass his best and he does. however Jaya and Anirban scouse borrow the display. Jaya emotes fantastically and Anirban improvises skilfully. Rajnandini is Chandrabati, mainly for the target audience so as to see her for the first time. Rudranil is contained in his appearing in the course of, peaking on the proper second. Aparna and Anjan are a pride collectively. however while it's miles search for the self, the Naga sanyasi tune might have been less hurried.
With restricted price range for Bengali films, recreating the zamindari opulence becomes a battle. but the movie manages to preserve the audience engaged with the proceedings in one of these way that scanning the units will now not be top of your mind.
