Dinabandhu : A Movie That Touches Heart

Watched Dinabandhu ? If not get a glimpse of this Munin baruah Movie from this article .

'Dinabandhu' is based on one famous short story 'Zowtuk' ( dowry) by Dr Bhabendra nath Saikia , the magician who used the Assamese language to describe the strangest of all situations .
The veteran of Assamese film industry likeTapan das is performing as Dinabandhu , the lead ,with Arun nath acting as his friend or llike the living conscience of the hero .They are aptly supported by the new brigade comprising of charming actresses Prastuti Porashar , Gayotri Mahanta , Nishita goswami and Jubin Garg .

The protagonist is a typical middle class person who thinks his earnings are worth spending to buy happiness for his family .His earnings are limited as he wants to stick to the rightful path and without succumbing to corrupted means . He wants to please everybody , including those who never knows how and how much he earns .He celebrates his own wedding almost grandly going out of his ways . Difficulty started coming when his wife falls sick and he cannot opt for better treatment for her ; hence she passes away . Dinabandhu takes private tuitions to make the both ends meet .

The time for marriage of his daughters came . Once again he goes beyond his capacity to fulfil the wish of the in-laws of his elder daughter . When the time of his second daughter comes he just cannot make out how he will manage . He writes a story describing his situation from the on-start of his life how his elder daughter's and his own wedding celebrations have destroyed the foundation of his life . He indirectly suggests younger daughter Bani to elope with her fiancé to save his face , and of the guilt of not being able to celebrate her wedding .

A very thought provoking storyline as well as beautifully adapted by Munin Baruah . The story was converted into the drama form in a successful manner which perhaps encourage producer Krishna Roy to produce this movie too . Music was composed by Jubin Garg and it is only enhancing the movie .
This one is albeit a collector's piece for those who loves movies and especially the genre of serious movie .
