An encounter between the lead characters in Shesher Kobita


At the point when Rabindranath Tagore penned Shesher Kobita, he gave another definition to love and aching. As the years progressed, perusers have contended whether Amit and Labanya’s adoration accomplished satisfaction through detachment and delighted over the how the creator had taken self-feedback to another level. Along these lines, when Suman Mukhopadhyay chose to make a film on this artistic excellent and picked Konkona Sen Sharma and Rahul Bose as Labanya and Amit individually, the decision offered ascent to specific questions. Could Rahul, with his somewhat emphasized Bengali, be ‘The Amit Ray’? Imagine a scenario in which Konkona didn’t catch Labanya’s quality in straightforwardness. Imagine a scenario in which the graceful substance of the story lost all sense of direction in interpretation.

In any case, Suman’s on-screen adjustment puts each one of these questions to rest. His Shesher Kobita can be termed as an adept tribute to the Bard, as the film is well-made and has possessed the capacity to hold the quintessence of an adoration story well relatively revolutionary. Rahul gets to be Amit from the first casing — defiant, obstinate, smooth, however in the meantime, a sentimental with a kind nature. He speaks to the well-perused and affluent Bangali babu of pre-Independence Bengal, a charmer whose quality and force stun everybody when he meets his perfect partner, Labanya. Rahul’s acting appears a small bit constrained some of the time, yet Konkona resembles this character was composed remembering her! Downplayed and solid, yet defenseless and enthusiastic, Konkona’s Labanya is an enjoyment to watch.

However, Sesher Kobita is as much DoP Sirsha Ray’s film as it is Suman Mukhopadhyay’s. Through his camera, we wind up amidst the cloudy, green valleys of Shillong. All the outside edges are visual enjoyments and stand as a splendid scenery for Amit and Labanya’s powerful story. Debajyoti Mishra’s music and Dev R Nil’s ensembles effectively transport the gathering of people to a former period.


Swastika Mukherjee as Ketaki is a decent decision. She is haughty however powerless in her affection for Amit that at last makes her an alternate individual. Debdut Ghosh as Shovonlal is a disclosure. Perusing the novel, one may not envision him as the noiseless admirer of Labanya, yet he will always be Shovonlal in your psyche once you watch the film. Soumitra Chatterjee’s interpretation of Nibaran Chakraborty’s ballads and Aparna Sen’s version of the notorious ‘Hey bondhu biday’ couldn’t have been something more. In any case, the main thing that is lost from the film is Amit-Labanya’s pie in the sky discussion of their future together. We just wish the chief hadn’t altered it out.


Numerous youthful viewers today might not have perused Shesher Kobita, but rather that won’t be a lot of an impairment while watching this film. Suman depicts an adoration that is practically supernatural, its dialect everlast.
