Recently Hyderabad has hosted a Bengali film festival and Ranjan Gosh film “Ahaa Re” takes us into the intense love- story plodding plea for communal harmony. In fact, I would rather say good showcasing of cross-border harmony through a form of the most awesome feeling that is love.
The map is very saw edges. As per the present arena in west Bengal ,where it may be political or about a strong woman, this love story is so much to say we must hear.
The third feature film of Ranjan Ghosh has it all where a simple story of the cross border that touches your heart and conveys a great message.
Arifin Shuvoo plays the role of a chef from Dhaka and Rituparna Sengupta is portrayed as a home cook. A cross-border love story between two passionate cooks produced by Rituparna herself and directed by Ranjan Ghosh.
Farhaz Chaudhary (Arifin Shuvoo) is a popular cook in Dhaka, Bangladesh. After heartbreak with his in love, he shifts to Kolkata and got a job in a college friend’s restaurant in Kolkata. In Kolkata, he meets Basundhara, a middle-aged woman who runs a family-owned catering business. Basundhara (Rituparna Sengupta) is older than Farhaz and keeps a dark secret from her past.
Two bindings on the experiment with food, and very soon, the Farhaz is very close to the family of Basundhara, who lives with her father-in-law and a younger brother. Over time, Farhaz falls in love with Basundhara, but it feels that due to the normal social barriers of religion and age, Basundhara simply does not accept it.
The story also projects the woman who is able to stand up for herself. To be honest, All the actors have done a great show. Super acting by veteran actor Paran Bandopadhyay. He is the backbone of the film.
Handsome and calm look of Bangladeshi actor Arifin Shuvo catch the show with superb performance.
Basundhara (Rituparna Sengupta) is a calm and self-confident female whose closeness of emotion within the outer intimacy is hidden. She does not wear her feelings on his sleeve.
Ahaa Re is a great example of that fact of today’s love beyond anything and no doubt that the remarkably restrained performance of its actors makes it housefull. A super film directed by filmmaker Ranjan Gosh with melodious songs like “Aay Behestey Ke Jabi Aaay”(from Nazrul Islam’s box) and Ki Jala Diya Gela More” will be definitely emotionally hooked you towards the movie.
