Teko (2019) Bengali Movie Review: Ritwick Chakraborty’s performance is the only takeaway from this predictable family drama

Teko (2019) Bengali Movie Review: Story & Performances

Abhimanyu Mukherjee Directorial Teko starring Ritwick Chakraborty, Srabanti Chatterjee, Manasi Sinha, Kanchan Mallick, Abhijeet Guha, Sudeshna Roy, Aritro Dutta Banik, Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, & Shreema Bhattacherjee was released in theatres on 22nd November 2019 & premiered on Addatimes on 9th June 2023.

The film Teko, directed by Abhimanyu Mukherjee, revolves around Alokesh (played by Ritwick Chakraborty), a man obsessed with his hair. He asks his mother (Manasi Sinha) to find him a suitable bride who has long, beautiful hair.

Eventually, he meets Meena (Srabanti Chatterjee), who shares the same hair obsession, and he proposes to her primarily because of her gorgeous locks. However, Alokesh's quest for better hair growth leads him to purchase Byomkesh oil, which ends up causing him to lose most of his hair within just five days.

After knowing this, Meena cancels the marriage, leaving Alokesh with no other choice but to seek revenge. Will Alokesh be able to win Meena back? Can he successfully take his revenge?

Unfortunately, Teko offers nothing new, and its predictable storyline may fail to hold your interest. The film's only saving grace is Ritwick Chakraborty's brilliant performance, as he brings the character of Alokesh to life and portrays his struggles convincingly. However, the courtroom drama at the end is poorly executed, and the comedy falls flat in most scenes.

Srabanti Chatterjee's portrayal of Meena is satisfactory, although her character could have been given more depth. Manasi Sinha and Kanchan Mallick have limited roles that don't allow them to shine.

Director Abhimanyu Mukherjee missed crucial opportunities for better execution in Teko. The music composition and background score by Savvy are decent, but the cinematography by Souvik Basu and editing by Rabi Ranjan Maitraa fail to make a strong impression.

Final Words:

Teko, directed by Abhimanyu Mukherjee, is a poorly written and executed family drama that fails to make a positive impact. Aside from Ritwick Chakraborty's outstanding performance, there isn't much to captivate audiences.
