A brilliant wacky,sleazy,surreal satire that has its heart in the right place..
18 February 2014 | by arnab_tumpySee all my reviews

When the world is full of fakes and there is crisis all around, how do you discover the truth? The wait is to identify the real. The quest is to make way for a change. Director Birsa Dasgupta takes the sleazy, witty path to unveil the truth. The naked truth or real love is not easy in today's world where every next person believes in barter. What if this barter, this craving for the best comes as a boomerang and teaches humanity a lesson? Yes, the grass in greener on the other side until you step into the same wild grass. Maybe the facts are furious but the presentation was too comical. Director Birsa Dasgupta and story writer Debaloy Chatterjee has worked on subversion. Their gesture on screen was simple and sleazy, they have not tried to be sophisticated, not tried to be too urban to suit the taste of some.

Life is raw, so why not present it raw. They have laughed at familial situations, at love and even made a fool of themselves through the subject of censor board. A bizarre nighty makes way to the city and travels homes. Homes that are orthodox, homes that are too conservative, homes that have a newly married couple and homes that have a struggling actress. Life automatically alters the moment the women wear this fuscia piece of lacy cloth. But what next? The nighty conquers the city. It makes way to the headlines and drapes the city in its own colors. The film begins with a sequence happening in 1985 and jumps straight to the present. Every story along the nighty's path remains unresolved. A question keeps lurking on our minds as to what happens to the family after the nighty moves out?

Witty, allegorical dialogs and settings bring a new wave on screen and definitely is a breather in the midst of the ordinary. Director Dasgupta has adopted an excellent scheme of narration in the film, which truly reminds us of graphic novels. The film is divided into interesting chapters and he distinctly sculptors the edges to present each chapter individually. Moving from hook to hook the Obhishopto Nighty (cursed Nighty) finally meets real love. Love that brews between Apu (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) and Brishti (Tanusree).

With a whole gamut of fine actors from Parambrata to veteran actor Paran Bandapadhay to the jester Mir Obhishopto Nighty definitely is a winner. The music of the film is definitely haunting and sets the mood right with the brilliant lyrics. While Birsa Dasgupta deserves a pat for the storybook like format of the narrative Debaloy Chatterjee deserves an extra brownie for the dialogs.

If you cannot digest the pun, simply gulp in the fun. Obhishopto Nighty is a perfect watch for people in relationships, all sorts are welcome. The sleazy humor is tantalizing and leaves a lurking taste for the time to come.
