Aborto: Film Review – A remarkably well-etched concept that slops post-interval
Arindam Sil’s debut directorial film opens with the lines, "To the Ray who showed me light". Built around numerous gems created by Satyajit Ray, this film borrows names of characters and their characteristics from Charulata, Arayner Din Ratri and a few other classics. At close to 120 minutes, Aborto turns out to be a premature offspring which, with a little more nurturing had the potential to stay in the hearts of its audience.

The film comprises an impressive star cast with Tota Roy Chowdhury and Jaya Ahsan playing Mr. and Mrs. Sen. The story is about the relationship dynamics of the couple set in the city of Kolkata. Aborto, which means the vortex, is a story of deceit, corporate politics and the ever increasing-never ceasing greed to climb the ladder of success.

Saswata Chatterjee and Tota Roy Chowdhury are colleagues who are competing for the post of Vice-President of their organization. A lonely wife Charu Sen meets an upcoming cricketer Hori Bose played by Abir Chatterjee. Duli – Reshmi Ghosh is executive assistant to Mr. Sen and they share a mute chemistry which apparently is the grapevine in the company. Strangely, though there is enough evidence for the characters of Aborto to be linked; a certain degree of emptiness in their connect leaves the viewer craving for clarity in vision.

The screenplay shifts too many gears between the past and present day not letting the viewer concentrate much on either. On a lighter note, the performances delivered by Abir, Saswata and Tota are praiseworthy. The womenfolk of Aborto play characters which are less-meaty apart from Jaya Ahsan who does a fairly decent job. Victim to a conspiracy at his workplace, Tota Roy Chowdhury realizes the happiness he kept his wife and family aloof from. The music of the film is well composed barring an item number which is again an ingredient unnecessary for a film like this.

The idea of reuniting prominent characters from evergreen classics is what may excite the user. Only if the story had a definitive purpose to play cupid, the coming together of Hori, Charu, Duli, Shyamal, Runu, Prosanto, Jyoti and others would have been appeasing. Arindam Sil, whose direction sparks no magic also appears briefly in the climax.

Why should you watch this film?

Even though the film slops post-interval, a remarkably well-etched concept is my reason for recommending Aborto as a onetime watch material.
