Star Performance,Direction, Music:
Prosenjit Chatterjee delivers a power-packed performance. He’s just in his role from frame one and his stupendous energy is visible on screen.
Jaya is a charmer! She enacts her role so well. She reflects every emotion making it relatable.
Srijato Bandopadhyay, does a fair job. Nothing memorable from the rest of the supporting cast.
After a remarkable with Mayurakhi, Atunu Ghosh fails to attract audience’s concentration as it lacks good storyline and is extremely slow.
. Few moments are delightful . There should’ve been major changes done in the script in order to focus on one clear thing the makers wanted to say.
Special Mention to Appu Prabhakar’s cinematography.Debojyoti Mishra scores average with the songs in the film, but they’ve done magic with the background score.
The Last Word
All said and done, Robibar is one boring film with good performances by Prosenjit Chaterjee and Jaya Ahsan.. It’s a golden opportunity lost!
