Aynabaji (2016) Movie Review: Chanchal Chowdhury delivers a stunning performance

Aynabaji (2016) Movie Review: Amitabh Reza Chowdhury impresses with brilliant storytelling

Director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury's Aynabaji starring Chanchal Chowdhury, Masuma Rahman Nabila, and Partha Barua was released in theaters on 30th September 2016 and premiered on Hoichoi on 8th February 2024.

The story revolves around Sarafat Karim Ayna (Chanchal Chowdhury), who earns money by assuming the lives of high-profile criminals. These criminals pay him a substantial amount in exchange for serving their prison sentences until they secure bail.

Ayna takes pleasure in immersing himself in the characters of the criminals, understanding their behavior, body language, and habits, allowing him to convincingly replicate them during his time in prison. His life takes a new turn when Hridi (Masuma Rahman Nabila) becomes his neighbor. They gradually spend time together and realize they are in love.

News reporter Saber (Partha Barua) becomes suspicious of Ayna's sudden disappearance and starts investigating the matter. The plot takes a dramatic turn when Ayna decides to quit his job after being framed by a renowned politician. Will Ayna be able to save himself?

Chanchal Chowdhury delivers a stunning performance as Ayna, seamlessly stepping into the shoes of every criminal with utmost perfection. The romantic scenes featuring him and Masuma Rahman Nabila are also enjoyable.

The narrative maintains engagement throughout the film, with hardly any dull moments. Amitabh Reza Chowdhury deserves credit for impressive storytelling, and the well-executed plot twists in the second half enhance the film's engagement.

Masuma Rahman Nabila has a limited screen presence, but her performance, particularly in scenes with Ayna, is impressive. Partha Barua, portraying news reporter Saber, delivers a convincing performance. Cameos by Arifin Shuvoo as AC Sajjad and Bijori Barkatullah as Saber's separated wife are acceptable.

The music composition by Arnob, Fuad, Habib & Chirkut Band adds another positive dimension to the film, especially with the songs "Lag Velki Lag" and "Dhire Dhire Jaona Somoy." Cinematographer Rashed Zaman impressively captures visually stunning moments, and the editing by Iqbal Ahsanul Kabir is satisfactory.

Aynabaji is a must-watch thriller directed by Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, featuring an outstanding performance by Chanchal Chowdhury, supported by convincing performances from Masuma Rahman Nabila and Partha Barua.
