Love Songs -Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
The movie Love Songs-Yesterday, Today and Tommorrow is done by Jayabrato Chatterjee who is a Journalist-poet-author. Previously he has done Kehkashaan with Victor Banerjee, Mallika Sarabhai and Girish Karnad.
Anyhow in this movie you can see Jaya Bachan, Om puri and Mallika Sarabhai in major roles. The story is about a fun-loving widow Mridula Chatterjee who runs a NGO for challenged people in Kolkata. She has a grandson Rohan (Prithviraj Choudhury) whom she plans to visit in the beginning of the movie. Rohan has a girlfriend Tara (Doel Basu). When Mridula meets Rohan, he insists her to recollect her memories. Mridula starts telling Rohan and Tara that how she had to make choices in life for Rohan and herself. She tells them about her love Aftab Jaffrey (Om Puri) whom she could not marry. Now the twist in the story comes when Mridula has to decide whether to begin life afresh with Aftab or not.
Chatterjee touched a subject that has been done before. The movie lacks novelty from the beginning itself. The director tried to cover all the places in Kolkata but some how did not show it clearly which is one drawback in the movie. Instead of showing the places as a slideshow he must have shown it in a different way. Coming to performance, Jaya Bachchan and Om Puri have done well as expected, but Mallika Sarabhai has been wasted in the movie. That’s all for now friends.
