Guha Manab - The Caveman Review & Rating
Guha Manab' penned by Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay is not an ordinary love story. It deals with deeper human psychology. Director Paromita Munshi opted for this film in her first attempt to the direction which needs guts and she deserves some appreciation for the same. However, things didn't shape up properly.
Then again, continuity takes a beating in several scenes, especially the last one, when the colonel gets off a car wearing white sneakers and leaves behind a pair of black Oxfords on the beach. We can’t call the performances bad, as all actors have done justice to their roles. It’s just that the story is so convoluted that all their efforts come to naught. This is not a film worth the time and money.
