Hello readers! We hope 99chill.com will live up to your expectations by providing you with the latest movies and web shows in all languages. Today's blog is about the Bengali movie Belashuru .

About the Movie:

We all neglect our loved ones. Only when they leave do we realize what is missing in our lives.

Belashuru could play the same role as Belasesh, but it's not a sequel, so the story is different. The movie begins with Arati and her husband Viswanas, who run away from home one day, for a morning walk.

This event brings the whole family together. Biswanath and Arathi's four children - all settled in their own lives - decide to take care of their mother. But Biswanath did not let them be with them. In a second, the voice of Amitabh Bachchan-Hema Malini-starrer Bagban can be found. But Belashuru set his charm. The children respect their father's decision and decide to stay together and do what they can to heal their mother.

Belashuru also talks about our disappointments and regrets, the pain we sometimes unconsciously inflict on each other. But ultimately it is our love that helps us find salvation in our relationship. We see Biswanath regretting not being close to his wife during his lifetime.

And now Arati can no longer recognize him because he wanted to spend time with her. It becomes more and more important for him to take care of her.

This story cannot be an exception. Editing could have been tighter. But when emotional factors drive you away, you will forget these little things.

Belashuru brings out the wonderful on-screen chemistry between the two amazing actors. Soumitra as Biswanath is brilliant as always. Swatilekha? A show like Arathi will leave you speechless. Sadly, we'll never see them create their terrifying magic on screen again. The supporting cast includes Rituparna Sengupta, Sujoy Prasad Chatterjee, Kharaj Mukherjee, Aparajita Adhya, Shankar Chakraborty, Indrani Dutta, Monami Ghosh, Anindya Chatterjee, and Pradeep Bhattacharya do full justice to their roles. The script allows each character to develop. Funny intervals are carefully placed.

As far as the production values ​​are concerned, the film is technically good and the music and cinematography are given a little bit. The song and background score to complete the mood palette.

The biggest takeaway from Belashuru is the last 15 minutes of the total Belashuru movie duration of 140 minutes of the film - hit a strong emotional note that will leave you choked up and teary-eyed. By the time the film is over, you will feel like a member of this family. Belashuru makes it a must-watch movie.

Belashuru Storyline:

Alzheimer's patients are not one-dimensional beings. Complex personalities sooner or later withdraw and lose influence in life. They dream when they are happy. They can be selfish and foolish when they are wise. At least no one knows when it will pass from them to others. Only one family member who is particularly prone to aggressive behavior is unable to control them. Even the combination of family and professional care can fail.

This is more so in severe forms of the disease where the patient loses all ownership of his body. But there is another problem. They are completely under the protection of others who can take advantage of their extreme vulnerability to abuse their power over them.

Therefore, Alzheimer's disease is a multifaceted curse for both patients and their caregivers.

Arati (Swatilekha Sengupta) is taken care of by her 50-year-old husband Bishwanath (Soumitra Chatterjee), an Alzheimer's patient. For the entire opening 140 minutes of the movie, we get nothing but a child and his devotion. There is a small moment at the beginning where his only son (Shankar Chakraborty) accuses him of blaming him for everything (for not giving time to his ex-wife), but the dramatic potential of this tension is not developed. As Bishwanath says, in a rare moment of self-expression in the film, he thought he started a new life "together" with his wife, but he no longer recognized her! The baby daughter (Monami Ghosh) echoes this sentiment and tells her older brother (Rituparna Sengupta) that when she needs her mother the most, she loses herself.

Belashuru Review:

I found Arati to be a wonderfully happy old lady. Not only does her husband comb her hair (Amul has recalled this interesting detail), but she cleans her feet, flushes the toilet, and flushes it with infinite patience; He also had four children, without a second thought, from Kolkata and Bombay (wife and children) dived to his side in Santiniketan, found his childhood from Faridpur border and remarried the "bor" (boy) to relive the most precious time. life, after the flood. in the hope that she will remember and bring recognition to her husband.

They give up their busy lives and give it time. Ideally, it should; but the reality is not. Not because the children care, but because the cruel reality of life will not let them. Atanu Ghosh's Mayurakshi (2017) and Indrasis Acharya's Pupa (2017) deal with this complex aspect of responsibility with greater honesty.

Aside from time and loved ones' anxiety, other key factors in caring for an elderly Alzheimer's patient (or any other patient related to it) are space and money. The sarkars of Belasheshe do not lack this either. I am not here to justify the sorrow of the privileged. I am one of them. I have a problem with directors who don't want anything more than just getting involved in real life. Alzheimer's is far more terrifying than what we see here (with rich cartoon relief and unavoidable songs and dances).
