REVIEW: The story of the movie is magical. You'll get to know the main story of the movie long before it ends which makes a movie more interesting. The story has been well written by Raihan Khan. The movie gets slow at times but that can be completely overlooked by the amazing performance of the actors. The story-writer deserves appreciation. Tania Ahmed did her job so well that no one can guess this was her first time directing a movie. Her skill as a director was showcased in the brilliant trailer, establishing her potential as a director before the movie was even released. She should be heartily appreciated for striving to present the story very beautifully.
Tarek Anam Khan's first scene of the movie proved that he is undoubtedly a brilliant artist. His style of presentation, dialogues, mannerism, dressing sense, and just about everything else were astounding. The co-star and the heroine Mim has been represented in the most beautiful way; she looked attractive and her acting with Tarek Anam Khan was exceptional. There is nothing new to say about Mishu Sabbir and Mir Sabbir, they were great as always. Irfan Sajjad's looks and acting were great but there some hesitation was felt from him. Adding subtitles was a good initiative and provided better understanding of the plot. The movie "Bhalobasha Emoni Hoy" is like having two stories collided into one story. Despite the suggested mixture, though, the uniqueness of the love story and the way it was presented are sure to leave a lasting impact. Modern audiences should learn to appreciate movies such as these to revive the dying art of Bangla cinemas.
