'Samantaral' is a great story to watch with a good message. The story starts when the Riddhi Sen comebacks to his grandfather's house. The way director narrates the story and the characters which come with the sink to the storyline make the audience hooked to their seats.Dialogues were well written and the screenplay was engaging. Samantaral once again proves content is what matters in the film.
Coming to the performances and technical aspects, the lead actors Soumitra Chatterjee, Parambrata Chatterjee, Riddhi Sen and Aparajita Adhya done a great job in their respective roles. Production values are good and special mentions for editor 'Govinda Chatterjee' for his great editing. The background music also beautifully enhanced the scenes.
Final verdict a must watch masterpiece with a strong message to respect every human being.
Samantaral starts with the introduction Sujan (Parambrata Chatterjee) who is one of those persons in a family with whom no one interacts. The screenplay picks up the pace when Arka is introduced and offers a solid film from there on. Partha Chakraborty dares to come up with a unique script in his second film itself and it is applause-worthy. Though the screenplay seems a bit slow, the emotions and performances on screen make things better. Parambrata Chatterjee does complete justice to the role of Sujan and breathes life into the character. Finally, if you can ignore the slow pace and looking for a decent entertainer, Samantaral is the best option.
Partha Chakraborty's second movie 'Samantaral' focuses on those who are unwanted in a family or society. We feel uncomfortable to talk about them. Parambrata Chatterjee plays Sujan the middle child of a family who mostly stays inside his room, alone. When his nephew Arka (Riddhi) comes to stay with his grandfather, he was told his second uncle is mentally disturbed. However, Arka bonded with Sujan. But, something started to bug him. He felt everyone in the family is hiding something from him. The film has a solid storyline dealing with a significant issue that is needed to be addressed. Parambrata performed his role with precision. Aparajita, Tonushree, Riddhi all did a good job.
