Ek Je Aache Kanya (2001)

Posted: November 9, 2015 in Bengali films, Konkona Sen Sharma, Sabyasachi Chakraborty


Ek Je Chilo Kanya heralded a new wave in Bengali cinema – a kind of cinema that is contemprorary and handles an urban vexed issue with great finesse. What is remarkable in the film is a great performance from debutant Konkana Sen Sharma as a psychotic temptress who becomes a nightmare for a tenant (Sabyasachi Chakraborty) and his lover (Debasree Roy) who work in an advertising agency. Sabyasachi and Debasree also perform credibly.

Without revealing the storyline, I would recommended the film for viewing. On a sad note, the director Subrata Sen who showed such great promise with this film didn’t quite live up to the expectation with his subsequent works (Swapner Feriwala, Nir Nirjane) and seems to have disappeared from the film-making scene.
