CAST : Dev, Rittika Sen, Waheeda Rehman, Rupa Ganguly, Swagata Mukherjee, Kaushik Sen, Jisshu U Sengupta.
DIRECTION : Aparna Sen.
GENRE: Drama.
DURATION : 2 hours 31 minutes.
Verdict : Watch it only for good performances .
Pluses : Dev is good, Couple of decent songs,Rittika Sen looks stunning, Waheeda Rehman is surprise package, heart wrenching climax.
Minuses : routine storyline, Jisshu Sengupta lacks confidence on screen, too much manipulation in screenplay in 1st half.
Plot : The high point of the film are the performances. All the actors, including Dev, have performed perfectly. However, Jisshu and Swagata take the cake. Jisshu's kohl-eyed take on Tybalt adds that right dash of salt to the broth, while Swagata plays the perfect blend of the Nurse and the Chorus, giving the narrative that slight push whenever it needs a twist. Even Rittika does a good job of playing the innocent and playful Zulekha.
