Meghnadbodh Rohoshyo (2017) Thriller
Meghnadbodh Rohoshyo (2017) is about a Professor of Oxford, who during his annual sojourn to home town receives a copy of the bengali classic from an anonymous source and wonders “whodunit, howdunit and most importantly whydonit”?
A beautifully twisted plot with wonderful concept and storytelling that slowly peels the onion and makes way for the bulb!
Meghnadbodh Kabyo isn’t exactly what the Film is about however it’s similar when we look at the characters of the film and that of the book. It’s a story of betrayal. The film was good overall, however the only point of dissatisfaction is that the policemen were portrayed as extremely hopeless and on the other hand a woman (artistic in nature) and a film director turned out to be the actual detectives of this plot. And even though that seems amusing, it didn’t quite make sense to me while I was watching the film. Overall a nice plot, good use of Bengali literature, great acting – a film worth watching!
