Koto Shopno Koto Asha
Director: Wakil Ahmed
Cast: Pori Moni, Bappy Chowdhury, Subrata, Shatabdi Wadud
Plot: Bappy's life is surrounded by the love and affection he shares with his students. Teaching both the age groups of children and the elderly, he is detached with his father. Thus, neglecting this absence of love, he keeps himself busy being occupied with his students. Pori Moni participating as a singer in a singing show gets attacked by a group of hooligans where Bappy comes as her savior. Their love chemistry continues further, as Bappy rescues her purse when somebody steals it and tries to run away. After being head over heels for one another the issue of difference in religion rises. Pori Moni playing as Pori Banarjee in the movie belongs to a Hindu family, where her family disapproves her relationship with a Muslim boy. After going through a rough phase, it's a happy ending when Pori Moni's family ultimately approves her relationship with Bappy.
REVIEW: Firstly, this movie's cinematography is the main reason for its failure. A little effort in terms of choosing a skillful cinematographer would have made a massive difference in the long run. This essential lacking was noticed vividly. However, the director not only paid no heed in selecting locations but also failed tremendously in terms of music. Keeping in mind that one of its lead characters is portraying as a singer, Pori Moni did her best in order to fulfill her role from the beginning and her effort has been showcased flawlessly. But due to the director's negligence towards its meager plot and cinematography, Pori Moni's effort and charm could not save the movie. Bappy, on the other hand, gave his 100% to accomplish his character in a soulful manner, but there was still something missing. A lot of movies in the past has been based on the concept of lovers belonging to different religions, which is why Wakil Ahmed as a director could have provided a variation in terms of narrating this traditional concept. It is very baffling to comprehend how a director like him, who he has directed some decent numbers of successful movies over the past, gave no focus on some of the essential issues of the movie. May his next movies reflect more sincere effort.
