Review: Mukherjee Da’r Bou – not your typical saas-bahu drama!

Published on 27th Oct 2020 by BlogBuster Editorial Team

If you love watching family dramas, Mukherjee Da’r Bou should be one of the first movies on your list. It effectively unfolds the intricacies of a dysfunctional family and leaves you with a smile on your face. The story revolves around the complicated relationship between a woman and her mother-in-law and takes you through their daily lives. But there’s more to it than what meets the eye. 

The daughter-in-law tries to win over her mother-in-law throughout the movie. She manages her moods, gives in to her whims and yet finds it difficult to please her. She’s a caring daughter-in-law and a doting mother who also manages the household. However, their mundane lives take a sudden turn when the father-in-law passes away, and the daughter-in-law takes a drastic step.

Director Pritha Chakraborty sets the narrative emphatically for a directorial debut. Koneenica Banerjee plays Aditi, the quintessential middle-class daughter-in-law who tries to strike the right balance at home. She manages the household while caring for her recently-widowed mother-in-law. Anashua Majumdar’s performance as Shobharani, the mother-in-law, is equally impeccable. She seamlessly transitions between a caring grandmother and an irksome and sometimes evil mother-in-law. Both the actresses complement each other with their effective dialogue deliveries. In a role that binds the story together, Rituparna Sen excels as Aratrika who tells both the women what they need to know.
