Bengali cinemas most lovable on screen couple is back after a gap of 16 years


Since the beginning of their career as film directors, the director duo Shibaprasad and Nandita have made films upon the aspects of the social life of people which we never often think about in our everyday life. Moreover, the films from this director duo often takes us on a ride to the reality where we experience the flavor of a family, some relationships, some crisis and their way outs in an unique way.


From the makers of Muktodhara, Alik Sukh, Belaseshe and Ramdhanu comes another film ‘Praktan’ (The Formar).


Yes, we all fall in love at some point of time in our life and often fail to keep loving in style. But one failure may give way to a success for a lifetime. This film somewhere proves it.


The story rolls as Sudipa (Rituparna) a promising architect meets with Ujan (Prosenjit) a travel guide and an explorer as well as a history enthusiast, with a concern to participate in his heritage walks in Kolkata. Sudipa and Ujan fell for each other and eventually got married. The crisis they faced, started as they began their family life. On one hand, Ujan hardly had any time to give to his family because of his busy shedule and the economical struggle he faced everyday and on the other was Sudipa who was well payed but knew nothing about compromising and adjustments. She was stubborn and her all focus was on fulfilling her aspirations. She even knew nothing about what living with the in laws really meant. Unlike Ujan, she dreamt of a nuclear family. Daily quarrels and nuisense poisoned the relationship which gradually resulted in a divorce.


Jumping ten years, while on a train journey back to Kolkata from Mumbai, Sudipa (Rituparna) meets with Aparajita Adhya and a little girl. As their conversations went on, Sudipa came to know that they were none other than Ujan’s present wife and daughter.


From here the story gains a pace which takes the viewers to a simple yet healthy outcome.


Roy & Mukherjee managed well to portray the instict called ‘Love’ within a compartment of a train where three generations of people were actually exploring the true meaning of it.


The first was the family of Ujan. Secondly, Biswanath and Manali who were returning from honeymoon and finally Soumitra and Savitri Devi who were returning to their city from their Mumbai based son’s place.


This film marked the acting debut of Anupam, Surojit (Bhoomi fame) and Upal (Chandrabindu) fame. They were not there in the core story but there journey and their jamming supported the real story all through the film.


Posenjit and rituporna is back with Praktan


In terms of acting, Rituparna’s part went reccesive as that of Aparajita’s gained dominance because of her simplicity.


Prasenjit acted remarkably good overal.


The musicsters catched the eyes as all of them acted well beyond expectations.


As Biswanath and Manali added the spice of comedy to the film Soumita and Savitri gave the taste of dessert to the delicacy.


In terms of Cinematography, the director duo portrayed the City of Joy with some extraordinary top angle and extreme long shots.


Music Directors Anindya and Anupam gifted a tracklist for the film stadded with gems where the songs like ‘Tumi Jake Bhalobaso’ and ‘Kolkata’ are already superhits.


Finally, the film ‘Praktan’ deserves a place in the must watch list for all the film buffs. This is the one which you should not miss this weekend.
