When Hollywood Comes Down to Earth

Bengali Movies for Families

Sometimes, the best movies are those that are the most true to life and realistic. At times, there is just too much dramatization, and that can render a movie less enjoyable as the audience finds it way harder to relate to it.  It seems like that is the lesson the Indian company Cine 9 has taken to heart.

Jaani Dykaha Hawbe

The movie – Jaani Dykaha Hawbe – is all about family.  Starring Parambrata Chatterjee, Anjan Dutt and Payel Sarkar, the moviemakers are promoting the film as an evening of entertainment for the whole family.  The film tells a normal story that could happen to anyone.  But what makes it into a movie, is that it is told differently.  Two of the characters – a model and a musician – fall in love but drift apart due to the divergence in their careers. But of course, the story does not end there.  It is how the two are united that makes it into a real feel-good, family movie.

The movie’s director – Namit Bajoria – says that Cine 9 is trying to change how Bengali movies are being made. This movie imparts an important message that “relationships are more important than career.”  It is definitely a great movie for the whole family – enjoyable and with an important life lesson.
