A hitman barely out of a drawn out trance like state is seen attempting to make himself acquainted with the surroundings as he returns home from the medical clinic. He tosses a speedy look at his child and wife who are seated right beside him.
Strangely, Kishore Kumar’s Bengali track ‘E ki holo keno holo’ is heard playing on the taxi radio. After two hours, you end up murmuring this equivalent tune in the wake of going through a ‘mass’ of an excursion of this man named Bob Biswas.
Subsequent to awakening from a mishap induced coma of eight years, Bob Biswas (Abhishek Bachchan) ends up experiencing retrograde amnesia. He can’t remember his past memories after the mishap. At the point when the doctor inquires if he at least recollects his name , he quips, “shuru mein nahin tha lekin aap sab mujhe Bob bulaa rahe hai toh..” Soon, Bob is informed that he has a wife known as Mary (Chitrangda Singh), Benny, who is his son and Mini, who is step-daughter.
As he struggles so much to remember his way of life as a hitman, he ends up in an ethical problem when two officials from the police division reach out to him and request that he knock off a couple of individuals. Nonetheless, when the gun lands in the hands of Bob , it occurs to him that he has likewise got confidential information to keep. While Bob is caught up with shooting people, the young people of the city wind up in the grasp of a lethal drug named ‘Blue’. Unknown to Bob, there is risk sneaking near him and his family.
At the point when the person Bob Biswas showed up in Vidya Balan’s 2012 thrill ride Kahaani, he gave a chill to the crowd’s bone with his misleading appearance. A coldblooded contract killer who takes cover behind the facade of an insurance agent and murmurs ‘Ek minute’ prior to taking out his weapon from his sling gun and firing his victim.
No doubt this iconic character earned a standalone movie of its own.
Does Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani spin-off Bob Biswas do justice to these actors? Shockingly not and a significant fault for that goes to Ghosh’s unexceptional composition! The majority of his characters are silly and scarcely inspire any sentiments. Indeed, even with willing willingness to accept some far-fetched situations, the plot neglects to hit home.
Bob’s inward struggles work just in parts. One wanted that Ghosh had added some more depth to the characters and more profundity to the plot whose subject rotates around the renowned saying ‘As you sow so will you harvest.’
This is one of the significant justifications for why Bob Biswas gets out of director Diya Annapurna Ghosh’s hands.
The debutante director required greatly improved content when it came to giving orders. With this Abhishek Bachchan-starrer, she scarcely touches the surface. But in a couple of scenes, Diya doesn’t have much on her platter to feature her instrumental skills.
Abhishek Bachchan assumes control from Saswata Chatterjee to play the moderately aged hitman Bob Biswas. The entertainer starts his killing binge on a promising note just to be let somewhere around the old composition. Positively not Ab Jr’s important work! Chitrangda Singh as Bob Biswas’ significant other Mary assumes her part with beauty yet gets nothing strong to dive into. Samara Tijori as Mini plays out what’s composed for her. Amar Upadhyay and Bhanu Uday Pratap don’t have anything significant to offer.
The one in particular who hangs out in this parcel is Paran Bandopadhyay as Kali Da who is a mystery manager of sorts. The secretive air around him leaves you inquisitive as you continue to contemplate whether there’s another side to his person that meets the eye. Amidst all the tumult, his Kali Da is an inner voice guardian who ensures that there’s consistently an equilibrium in the slaughter world.
Overall everything is great. The characters played their roles very well especially Abhishek Bachachan and the movie is an interesting serial thriller drama.
