Bibaho Diaries Review
Mainak Bhowmick is a smart filmmaker. He does understand the temperament of the new generation and usually come up with fresh ideas which leave us with a message and in a hilarious manner. His erstwhile work 'me and my girlfriends', 'family album' is quite different as well as subversive in their own ways.
Bibhabo Diaries is a contemporary analysis of a modern couple of this era. Pratay(the outstanding Ritwick Chakraborty) fell hook ,line and sinker over Royona(a promising Sohini Srakar) and much against the wishes of the two family members. Then starts all fiascos in the family of the newlyweds. Both of them started fighting over trivial issues of everyday mundane life and romance seems to have taken a backseat.
While Pratay is a theatre actor/director,Royona is a freelance photographer but marriage and the weird expectations takes its toll and Pratay has to join an advertising agency as a copywriter and his passion about theatre dwindles away. Then sexual jealousy creeps in and the sudden entrance of Pratay's childhood friend and his fiance adds fuel to the fire! Because of the couples immaturity and the inability to deal with the age old institution makes matters worse! Whether they will patch or drift apart forms the crux of the story.
The film is a rom-com, so nothing extraordinary happens. The narrative is free flowing and meant to entertain the audience and it does. The superfluous script is elevated by the brilliant performances by all its actors. Overall the film is like a fresh breeze of air which really gives you a good time. The rest of the character actors are all splendid. Like Kamalika as Royona's elder sister deserves applause as a melodramatic housewife.
Lily Chakrabory,Biswanath Basu ,Biswajit chakraborty all adds flavours to the dish. Sourav Palodhi's script and Moinak's expert direction indeed makes the audience have a blast.
