Gaheen Hriday Review & Rating
Gaheen Hriday directed by Agniev Chatterjee based on Suchitra Bhattacharya's novel that deals with the elements of deep-rooted human psychology. In places, the film appears quite predictable. Rituparna Sengupta, otherwise a brilliant actress, looked out of the places in the film due to faulty direction.
The film revolves around Sohini (Rituparna Sengupta), a woman, who wants to get rid of her husband Bhaskar (Debshankar Haldar). Sohini falls in love with Bhaskar's friend Anupam (Kaushik Sen) and gets into an extramarital anniversary. Just when Sohini plans to divorce her husband, he gets diagnosed with cancer. What will Sohini's decision is the film all about.
In acting Kaushik Sen and Debshankar Haldar, two eminent theatre personalities of Bengal delivered excellent performances. The film does well in exploring the inner turmoil of the three leads. All the characters in the film perfectly explore the grey shades.
