Palasher Biye (2024) Movie Review: Anjana Basu and Subhrajit Dutta delivered decent performances

Premendu Bikash Chaki's directorial family drama Palasher Biye, starring Mimi Chakraborty, Somraj Maity, Anjana Basu, and Subhrajit Dutta in lead roles, premiered on ZEE5 on February 9th, 2024, and on ZEE Bangla Cinema on February 14th, 2024.

The story revolves around Palash Chatterjee (Somraj Maity), the youngest son of the Chatterjee family, who lives in a joint family and wants to marry the girl of his choice. He meets Shalini Sen (Mimi Chakraborty) outside a bar where she is attacked by a few people. Despite handling the situation well, Palash and his friend decide to step in to help her but end up being mistakenly beaten by her.

After learning about their true intentions, Shalini apologizes to them and exchanges her number with Palash. After a few meetings, they fall in love and decide to get married. However, Palash's family does not approve of Shalini. Will Palash be able to convince his family and marry Shalini?

The family drama Palasher Biye suffers mainly due to a weak plot that fails to convince from the first scene itself. The story written by Parambrata Chattopadhyay and Padmanabha Dasgupta along with the screenplay and dialogues by Padmanabha Dasgupta, had significant room for improvement.

The on-screen chemistry between Mimi Chakraborty and Somraj Maity may disappoint viewers, and focusing more on developing the romance between Subhrajit Dutta and Anjana Basu could have made the film more engaging.

While Mimi Chakraborty's portrayal of Shalini is passable in some scenes, it's hard to believe she accepted a project like this after delivering back-to-back blockbusters like Raktabeej and Jaha Bolibo Shotto Bolibo. Somraj Maity, who was adequate in Nikhonj: The Search Begins, disappoints as Palash due to poor dialogue delivery and expressions.

Subhrajit Dutta and Anjana Basu don't have much to do in the script, but they are the only watchable performers in the film. Unfortunately, the director, Premendu Bikash Chaki, fails to understand their potential, leaving them underutilized throughout the film. Editing by Sumit Chowdhury could have been improved by removing unnecessary scenes, while Subrata Mallick's cinematography looks decent.
