Critic Reviews for Chander Pahar
Director Kamaleshwar Mukherjee's film version of the popular 1937 adventure novel by Bibhutishushan Bandyopadhyay struggles mightily for an epic quality.
There isn't much to recommend the film, which only escapes being truly awful by a complete absence of meanness and a compelling lead performance by Dev.
The thrills seem to have evaporated from Kamaleswar Mukherjee's handsome, slow-moving adaptation of a classic Bengali novel.
Painfully awkward in execution, from the stiff dialogue to the time-padding slo-mo sequences and glaring CGI.
The many misspellings in the film's subtitles do liven things up, even if the film's patchwork use of Bengali, Swahili, Portuguese and English make them somewhat inevitable.
