The film ABORTO deals partly with relationships, and also weaves in corporate politics and rivalry into the narrative. In the past we have seen films based around corporates – the Satyajit Ray films SEEMABADDHA & MAHANAGAR & the Madhur Bhandarkar CORPORATE comes to mind. The film doesn’t borrow from the mentioned films and demonstrates the director Arindam Sil’s competency in handling several characters.

The ensemble cast of Tota Ray Chaudhury, Joya Ahsan, Saswata Chatterjee, Reshmi Ghosh, Abir Chatterjee, Pijush Ganguly, Ritwik Chakraborty, Barun Chanda, Arindam Sil & a wonderful cameo by Kaushik Ganguly add to the strength of the film. Some of the characters are weak though. The clicking of clandestine photos of the philandering executive (Tota RC) with his secretary (Reshma G) by the rustic Ritwik Chakraborty which was obviously something the management would have probed further in the light of character assassination of a senior member appeared rather out of place in the scheme of the wily opponent (Saswata C).

An improved script could have truly made this a memorable film.
