Mr. Kolketa Season 1 Review: 

Director Surajit Chatterjee's adventure thriller, Mr. Kolketa, premiered on Hoichoi on 8th September 2023. The story kicks off with the murder of a museum security guard, leading to the arrest of Curator Amarendra Sen (played by Koushik Chattopadhyay), who is accused of both the guard's murder and the theft of valuable muslin from the museum.

Amarendra Sen's daughter, Jhelum (portrayed by Rajnandini Paul), visits the municipality office to inquire about their mutation status. There, she discovers that the person in charge, Kalakallol Dutta, also known as Kolke or Mr. Kolketa (played by Ritwick Chakraborty), is on leave for the day. She gets the opportunity to meet him on her next visit but is unable to obtain the status as Kolke's system does not start that day.

Kolke has a passion for uncovering hidden information about the city of joy, Kolkata. He frequently explores various historical places along with his nephew, Potai. Upon learning Jhelum's identity, Kolke decides to assist her in finding the missing piece of muslin.

Will Kolke and Jhelum succeed in locating the missing muslin fragment? Can they prove Amarendra Sen's innocence?

Hoichoi introduced Mr. Kolketa at a time when we have already seen numerous similar films and web series, such as "Karna Subarner Guptodhon," "Tansener Tanpura," "Rudrabinar Obhishaap," "Alinagarer Golokdhadha," and "Guptodhoner Sondhane." The lack of uniqueness in the plot is a primary reason why the series may not appear as exciting.

The standout aspects of Season 1 appear to be the performances of Ritwick Chakraborty and Kaushik Sen. Their face-off regarding uncovering clues and finding the muslin fragment is engaging. However, the overall execution of the series appears rather ordinary.

Rajnandini Paul as Jhelum delivered a decent performance. Koushik Chattopadhyay and Debesh Roy Chowdhury provided notable contributions with their respective characters too.

The inclusion of historical details in the series and a few comedic scenes are praiseworthy. Subhadeep Guha's background score is commendable, while Masihul Alam's cinematography and Rabiranjan Maitra's editing are satisfactory. The series concludes in a way that hints at the possibility of "Mr. Kolketa Season 2" in the near future.
