Chittagong Review - Gong worthyOct 14, 2012NewsIn 2002 Bollywood went on a Bhagat Singh overdrive. More than 4 films were made on him in various languages but the one which was the best of the lot was Rajkumar Santoshi's The legend of Bhagat Singh.In 2010 Ashutosh Gowariker made Khelen Hum Jee Jaan Se. He is yet to get back to work after that disastrous film. Bedabrata's Chittagong was also made around the same time but gets its release now.Told, from the point of view of Jhunku (Delzad Hiwale). One of the many boys who fought with the British under the command of Surya Sen (Manoj Bajpai) and his men Nirmal Sen (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), Lokenath Bal (Rajkumar Yadav), Anant Singh (Jaideep Ahlawat)and others. They shook the British army in the early 30's.Chittagong is a respectable re telling of history but fails to rise as a gripping dramatic film. The end result is satisfactory, ably performed by the cast but not impactful.One of the drawbacks of it coming after Gangs of Wasseypur is that it is a fight in your head situation to keep the actors from GOW away from the characters they play here. Every time Nawazuddin spoke to Pritilata (stunningly pretty Vega Tamotia) it looked like Faisal is talking. Is it the failure of me as an audience or the actors? I don't know.Word of mouth - Chittagong undid all the wrongs of Khelen hum jee jaan se.Rating - 3.5 (Good)Ticket meter - worth 200 bucksRony D'costa Chittagong Review - Gong worthy Oct 14, 2012
