Jyesthoputro Review & Rating

Jyesthoputro Review: The dynamics of relationships make the movie intriguing 

The premise

Tollywood superstar Indrajit Gangopadhyay (Prosenjit Chatterjee) returns to his ancestral home after a long time after getting news of his father’s death. On returning home, he has to face his young brother Patho (Ritwick Chakraborty) who is annoyed with all the nuisances that followed Indrajit's stardom and which he believes is interfering his privacy in the mourning period. The film is about the conflicts between two personalities, two worlds, and two existences of a celebrity and an elder son of a family.

The audience often expects to get surprised by the film. However, Kaushik Ganguly's Jyesthoputro does nothing as such. The film deals with real and relatable emotions, mostly mundane ones and manages to impress the audience with its beautiful writing, smooth flow, and wonderful conversation. The film gradually leads the audience to a conflict between two brothers over the birthright to perform rituals after their father’s demise. Indrajit also questions the point of performing traditional ceremonies for their communist father. But, is he doing it with a genuine concern or to keep up with his liberal image, that's a question that will bug the audience all the time.

The direction

Director Kaushik Ganguly has successfully transformed the dynamics of the people in a family into a movie. He manages to focus on every character and relationships with equal importance. He has delivered a relationship drama that deals with complexities hidden in day to day common and normal and also explores the idea of the inevitable event called death but didn't miss the humor in it. Ganguly's film never gets over the top while dealing with raw emotions and dramatic moments between two brothers. 


However, Jysthoputro turns out as a memorable journey due to the top-notch performances. Prosenjit Chatterjee was almost playing himself as a superstar. He added some gestures to establish the character. His performance as the elder son of the family is more challenging one and he passed it with flying marks. Ritwick Chakraborty is natural throughout.

One can understand Partho's annoyance, anger, and frustration just looking at his eyes or body language. The scene where he gulps down a few pegs before confronting his brother to give him an earful bears the sign of his brilliance as an actor. Sudipta Chakraborty stands out as their sister with a mental disorder. 

The good

  • Performances by Prosenjit, Ritwick, and Sudipta
  • The plot and the storytelling
  • The real and relatable complexities between the siblings

The bad

  • Technical glitches
  • Minor mistakes here and there


Kaushik Ganguly has done a hattrick this year with his releases and to be honest, he has managed to impress for the third time with Jyesthoputro. The movie is a relationship drama that can keep you glued with not-so-thrilling but substantial elements. It is definitely worth a watch. 

 Pycker Rating: 3.5/5
