Bibaho Obhijaan Review & Rating
Bibaho Obhijaan review: Pure comedy powered by amazing performances
Birsa Dasgupta's Bibaho Obhijaan starts with Anupam (Ankush) and Rajat (Rudranil Ghosh), two friends going crazy due to their dominating wives. Anupam's wife Rai (Nusraat Faria) is a rebel without a cause while Rajat's wife Maya (Sohini) is an overly religious, Bengali serial addict drama queen.
To get rid of their wives for a few days, two friends head for having a holiday in Darjeeling for three days saying numerous lies to their wives and the boss. But, they end up meeting Gansha (Anirban Bhattacharya), a dacoit. Soon, they realized Gansha is an ordinary village boy trying hard to get his wife Malati (Priyanka)'s heart. What follows is a laugh riot.
Script and Direction
Bibaho Obhijaan's story has nothing new to offer. However, it is entertaining and effortlessly funny. Rudranil has penned the script full with hilarious situations that take the story ahead naturally. Smart and witty dialogues is another important part of this comedy flick. The movie never tries the easy way, doesn't go too dumb or tries to make people laugh with sexual innuendoes. Which makes it a pleasant watch for the family audience. Birsa Dasgupta's direction brings every necessary element at its place and delivers a complete entertaining package for the audience.
The best part of the movie has to be its cast. Everyone in the movie did their part aptly. In acting, Ankush and Anirban Bhattacharya's performance stood out in the crowd. Gansha AKA Anirban's weird pronunciation sounds sweet and funny at the same time. It is bound to make people laugh. Nusrat Faria and Sohini Sarkar did a splendid job in their roles. Sohini's overacting suits the serial-addict character to the T. Rudranil Ghosh, however, has such role before and his mannerisms looked repetitive in some places. Priyanka Sarkar had little to do. Anyway, she managed to shine in the limited opportunity.
Music and the shortcomings
Film's music composed by Anirban Chatterjee perfectly suits the movie. The song Bibaho Obhijaan is quite hummable. However, there are some aspects of the movie which looked dated and quite offensive these days. Making fun of homosexuality or feminism doesn't suit the call of the era.
Overall, the movie is an enjoyable one if you don't take offense in certain things and take it lightly. The story is full of cliched yet entertaining enough to keep the audience hooked. Brilliant acting by the ensemble cast makes up for the flaws. If you want to have a good time with your family and friends, you can give it a try.

What to expect from the movie?
A hilarious plot
The film is a comedy, therefore, the audience would expect a storyline that will make people laugh. The trailer promises a funny premise and the movie should explore the same and make people laugh out loud for two hours.
The movie has a great cast that includes Ankush, Rudranil Ghosh, Anirban Bhattacharya, Sohini Sarkar, Priyanka Sarkar, and Nustaat Faria. With a great cast, the audience will be expecting a brilliant performance as well. We all know Rudranil and Ankush are good at comedy. Anirban, who has done serious roles by far, it will be interesting to see how well he plays a comedy role in a commercial flick.
The script and direction
Rudranil Ghosh has penned the script. Ghosh had written the script for Vinci Da before which was praised by critics and the audience. No wonder, the expectation will be huge this time. Birsa Dasgupta's direction is another reason to add to the expectation.
