Srijit Mukherjee's fifth directorial venture based on Sunil Gangopadhyay's novel was a treat to watch from beginning to end. The attention to detail and innovative camera angles right from the start bore an indication that something special was in store. Srijit twisted and modified the original story to make it relevant in the present times, interspersed it with enough comic moments to make the movie thoroughly entertaining and bound everything together in a non linear timeline seamlessly. Prosenjit Chatterjee delivered in style as Kakababu, the larger than life handicapped yet jovial protagonist and all the other actors were brilliant in their respective roles. The vast deserts and the inherent mystery of Egypt was captured with panache and along with the mesmerizing background score, made the big screen experience one to treasure.
All in all, it was really fulfilling seeing our childhood hero come to life and save the day in style in a scintillating adventure. At the same time it made me a little sad thinking that there won't be another new kakababu novel in the pages of Pujabarshiki Anandamela....
