Today, I had the opportunity to watch Chander Pahar, here in Kolkata at the Inox theater in Forum Mall, along with a good friend. Though the lead actor in the movie easily isn’t one of my most favourite actors in Bengali cinema, but I was still pretty much eager to watch the movie primary because of two reasons:
- I had read the original novel of the same name by Bibhutibhusan Bandopadhyay when I was literally a child. I loved it!
- Bengali film industry hadn’t seen such a movie before.
I’d say I wasn’t entirely disappointed by this flick, and it in fact deserves a lot of praise for a few things.
