Review of Khela Jawkhon Review of Bengali Film Khela Jawkhon starring Mimi Chakraborty by Arindam Sil dgtl

For several years, there have only been thrillers or intrigues in Bengali cinema. It is claimed that Bengalis do not go to see any other movies. This complaint is now so popular that when a truly thriller film comes out, the public’s enthusiasm is very high. And if this thriller is by Arindam Sheel, then there’s a little extra excitement in the book. Because by doing ‘Byomkesh’, ‘Shabar’, ‘Mitin Masi’, he got his hands on this industry. Now do Feluda again. It is therefore natural to have high expectations about ‘Khela Jai’.

A good thriller has two parts. Weave a web of mystery and twist the net. If both can be done with equally skilled hands, then only the minds of the public are filled. The story of this film revolves around Urmi (Mimi Chakraborty). He fell into a coma after an accident. Stayed in hospital for eight months. When the doctors almost give up hope of survival, Urmi regains consciousness. But the memory does not return. The people around him feel unfamiliar. I don’t remember the faces of husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law (Arjun Chakraborty, Varun Chand, Alkananda Roy). Even the face of the son lost in the accident is grim. Many memories suddenly came flooding back. But the behavior of the surrounding people is so confused that his head is more confused. Urmi no longer remembers who she really is. What he remembers, he cannot match the words of others. Meanwhile, a stranger suddenly arrives and says his son is alive. Is it true, or is he coming back from a coma and losing the difference between reality and fantasy? The director has woven the web of mystery well. So this film can be noted for the first part of the thriller.

The film's story is kept alive by Mimi's performance.  Whether it's emotional scenes or action scenes, it's equally fluid.

The second part is to fold the mesh. It almost doesn’t start until the climax. New questions arise in the scenario. But the answer does not match. As curiosity grows, a bit of impatience can grow too. The climax begins with the unraveling of the mystery. This format lends itself well to ‘Who Dun It’. But the story of this film is not just ‘Who Dun It’. There are many aspects. Who, what, when, how, why – all questions arise. And they are answered in the climax. Suddenly, a lot of information is presented to the public. Before you know it, the picture is over. So I think it would have been nice to get the answers a little longer. Especially when there are so many characters in the story. The public will want to know more about everyone. It might seem then that if the film had been seen in multiple episodes like the Netflix-Hotstar thriller series, several characters would have become more recognizable.

The director knows how to create drama in the thriller. It is clear to him that if a scene is cut in a certain place, a tight scenario can appear on the screen. But he didn’t neglect the other aspects of the film while making a good thriller. Urmi lost her memory after coming out of a coma. This story is therefore also his struggle to find his own existence. The director has taken this path as long as it must be shown with sensitivity. But that didn’t compromise with the pacing of the thriller. The making of the film is like any international thriller. Camera, lights, music – everything is done with care. Some frames shot at wide angle are so beautiful that the viewer forgets the story. In a storyline that is so suspenseful, the cinematography demands separate praise. The action scenes are also shot quite efficiently.

The film’s story is kept alive by Mimi’s performance. Whether emotional or action scenes, he is also fluent in everything. He did all the stunts in the movie himself. His hard work is therefore evident on screen. Audiences know that Arjun and Mimi’s chemistry has been intense ever since ‘Apaar Gan’. So it would be nice to see the two together on screen again. Characters of Anindya Chatterjee, Sushmita Chatterjee, June Mallya, Harsh Chhaya, Varun Chand or Alkananda Roy are limited here. All gave such worthy performances. But everyone will remember Mimi.

Few directors have shown the courage to make female-centric thrillers in Bengali films. If you want to watch more thrillers after watching ‘Drishyam 2’, you can watch this movie. At least Bengali movies are not far behind in this regard.
