From Swapan Chakravorty

May 2, 2010

The film brings an element of dark political satire that is rare in Bengali cinema. Especially enjoyable to those able to catch the cultural allusions (such as those to the films of Ghatak and to the songs), the film will appeal to those who might find in it shades of a political chase. Most important, the film is prescient about the displacement, material and otherwise, that global capital is bringing to our lives. The dialogue is consistently witty, with a bathos that reminds one of the best moments in the theatre of Utpal Dutt. This is a film that will make one believe in the creative intelligence and boldness of young filmmakers from Kolkata.
