DUB SHATAR

dub

Plot: A complicated relationship between a female social worker and a drug addict.
Review: Another extraordinary acting by Jaya Ahsan saves this dull movie. It wanted to be poetic movie with some great music and cinematography – it is in some sense but fails to deliver a punch to engage the audience.  During the entire movie, I was looking for that extra effort to make it worth spending time for. Unfortunately, it never came. Ambiguity and hidden meanings are the traits of Nurul Alam Atique. He didn't impose his unique style in this movie. It is straight and to the point film with some stylish camerawork from Rashed Zaman.
Renu, performed by Jaya Ahsan had another magnificent flawless acting. Other than her, we don't feel any connection with the other characters – they just pass by without us having to look back. Renu's blind brother tried to create sympathy, but rather we feel more Renu, who helps him see the world. Other characters couldn't come out of their television style acting. Often over-acting, it felt like another TV drama. These extra characters float around without much significance.
Renu falls for a drug addict, a recluse man. The man, who for a moment feels to be normal, but it turns out that he can not change. We are left with hope which never materializes.
The movie has some great camerawork tagged along with collages. And there are the songs… Jaya, Shehzad and Sumel produced songs which were made for certain scenes – the songs and the scenes blended nicely to sequences.
I found the ending of the movie is interesting. It came with a bit of twist that we all like to watch. Again, Jaya stole the thunder of all other characters of the movie. Overall, it is movie I wouldn't go watch in a theatre, I will buy a DVD.
