Reunion Review & Rating
Reunion, the debut movie of Murari M Rakshit captures the nostalgia that comes with the term itself. Every friend's reunion brings millions of memory an that's what leads us to the story. The movie starts with Arko (Indrashis Roy), Abhi (Saurav Das), Joyita (Saayoni Ghosh), Shuvo (Samadarshi Dutta) and Romita (Anindita) arranges a reunion in Kolkata after twenty years of their college life. Romita wasn't the part of the same friend group in the college. She becomes instrumental to make others open up about their college days.
As they start to remember the past, they started to talk about Rudra (Parambrata Chatterjee), their college senior, who was like a guide in their lives. The days of student politics return in their memory and it becomes a driving force of the story. Rudra's ideologies, student politics in 90's West Bengal and its nature has been shown with utmost sincerity. However, the same plot feels faulty as it didn't let the protagonist any grey shade altogether.
The film suffers through several jerks in the storytelling. We see Rudra forming a band with Arko and other guys almost out of nothing. However, this gives a chance to add some lovely songs in the story. The music by Joy Sarkar is impressive and compliment the film's set up quite aptly.
The film with some flaws stands out due to its honest execution. It never goes preachy or pretentious at any point. Rakshit's effort is commendable but what shines in the movie is the performances delivered by the ensemble cast. Indrashish, Sourav, Aninidita, Saayoni, and Samadarshi did justice to their parts.
Parambrata Chatterjee and Raima Sen did a tremendous staying absolutely natural and credible in their portrayal. After a long time, the popular pair returned to the big screen and the chemistry was just perfect. Sabyasachi Chakraborty was splendid in his brief yet meaningful cameo.
