Kaushik Ganguly’s ‘DRISHTIKONE’ is a New Perspective of Love Story.
After 14 years of gap, Tollywood’s hot favorite couple Prosenjit Chatterjee and Rituparna Sengupta were back with Praktan in 2016. Again after 2 years of gap, the couple is back with another love story thriller of Kaushik Ganguly’s “Drishtikone”.
The script is that Rituparna Sengupta (Srimati) is the wife of a renowned ophthalmologist Palash Sen (Kaushik Sen). But due to a fatal car accident two years back Palash Sen died leaving behind his eye foundation “Drishti”. The script showed Palash Sen as a supporting husband despite of being childless. Owing to the car accident, his elder brother Pritam Sen (Kaushik Ganguly) became paralyzed from the waist down and thus Srimati Sen suspect something foul and perilous reason behind this accident. So she decides to hire one of the eminent lawyers of Kolkata to seek justice as she never believed her husband to be killed in a car accident.
Jiyon (Prosenjit Chatterjee) lost his eyes due to an infection but with the help of “Drishti” foundation he got back one of his eyes after a successful eye transplant. Jiyon being a married man had his wife Rumki (Churni Ganguly) and two children. Srimati’s bond with Jiyon’s family, his children made a household breaking threat for Rumki. And as the investigation proceeds, Srimati started to spend more time with his family and also stated to be more attracted towards Jiyon.
On the other hand Pritam Sen (Kaushik Ganguly) was seen pretending as a paralyzed man because he was the only eyewitness of what exactly happened on the accident day. And at the end it was concluded that eye foundation “Drishti” was actually an eyewash and was a organ trafficking racket. Kaushik Ganguly’s character brings out the hidden truth in the case.
Kaushik Ganguly weaved many plots together in this film, and thus making the script a bit complicated. The varieties and shades of Srimati’s character is now well-played. Churni Ganguly as a dedicated and loyal wife is commendable. Kaushik Ganguly also acted and directed with elegance.
Overall the script is good and it will fix the audience to their seats with the hope of something interesting is going to happen at the end. But the clinch of the film is a cliché because the end was not explained in that way as expected.
The film receives 3 stars out of 5.
