Hrid Ma Jaarey
Kemon Achen?Ki khobor? Well, I am in a Bengali mood, because Bengali Malayali bhai bhai. Maybe we are a rice eating community. Likewise Bengali movies were so popular in Kerala once, Just like Malayali directors influenced Kerala, Keralites were influenced by Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Ritwik Ghattak, and Tapan Sinha. I still rememeber me watching all those Satyajit Ray movies eventhough I didn’t inderstand the language during my childhood days. Thanks to Doordarshan, they used to air movies from different languages and Bengali movies had a special attraction. My favorite was Ritwik Ghattak, I was totally was in love with him after watching Madhumati. I liked Subarna Rekha as well. Satyajit Ray movies were too high for my intellect.
I watched Hrid Ma Jaarey, (Live in my Heart) was released in 2014. Main actors are handsome hunk Abir Chattrejee and talented Reema Sen. See, this is where beauty fails in front of talent. Reema Sen has no more beauty than her sister Riya Sen, but Riya Sen doesn’t have a career at all. My malayali readers may not know who Abir Chatterjee is, lemme introduce him to you. He was in the list of Top Desirable Man in Calcutta Times (2014). He is one of the Superstars in Tollywood. He is one of my favorite actor in Tollywood, he is not only handsome, but also very very talented. He is the one acting as Vidya Balan’s husband in Kahani. I have seen his movies including Prem By Chance, BojhenaSheyBojhena, The Royal Bengal Tiger and so many other movies.
Hrid Ma Jaarey is a special movie and it is counted as a mix of various Shakespearian stories. It has a trajic end, and this movie is seen as one in top 10 Indian cinemas made on the backdrop of Shakespearian drams. Yes, it is a tragic movie and at the end we really feel bad for the lead characters. I was attracted to the psychological element in that.
The plot is like this. Abhijit ( Abir Chatterjee) is a successful mathematics professor and his students love him and respect him.
He is a single and he feels happy and go lucky with his singlehood. He has a sister, and both bhai behan lives a happy life. One day he meets with a Psychic LOL. Then the problem starts. This psychic says that more than scientific , philosophical and technical knowledge , there is something called hidden knowledge in the universe and its mediums. The she warns Abhijit to be careful about his heart, and gives an indication that even though he is peaceful now he may fall into deep pain after sometime.
Uffffffffff, ye psychics bhi na……….Use kya zaroorat thi ke ye sab baatein karne ki………..bina pooche har jagah ye log aa jaate hey……
Abhijt, who is basically a rationalist hates all these occult stuff, denies the psychic inputs and going ahead in life. Still, his heart was like a peaceful and serene pond, now a stone is thrown by this idiot psychic who doesn’t know how to handle the situation. She simply hijacked his subconscious mind. Why the hell, she has to do that. First of he did not ask her any question. Secondly, she got irritated when a rationalist questioned the psychic.
I don’t debate with a rational. I don’t watch talk shows against or for astrology or the occult. I am ready to go for a debate which we praise Lord and his creations. I am ready to speak tirelessly on how god has blessed my life. I can run extra miles to prove on how god is protecting us and how he yearns for us.
I can’t fight a war for astrology, or any occult. See, if your 9th house is afflicted you will of course be a rebel. If your 9th house is beneficially aspected then there will be reverence for divine things. That too on your own way. We all are programmed in a different way. My 9th house is totally in a collective placement, so I will be always after divine side of the life. My husband’s 9th house is placed in a rebellious mode so even though he is a theologian he hates astrology. What is the point in simply wasting our time in discussing the authenticity of astrology when my 5th lord is in the 9th house? At the same time, we all can praise the lord and be grateful despite being an astrologer, theologian, politician, or a criminal.
Well, coming back to Abhijit, he is disturbed from then onwards. After sometime he meets Debjani, our female protagonist Debjaani, ( Reima Sen) .
He loses his heart and both fall in a sexy and heated romantic relationship. Until then Abhijeet is a very successful man. He is doing a research. He has prepared some notes in the system and due to Debjaani’s lack of technical knowledge his system gets crashes and he loses all those precious work, but he forgives out of love.
Another important person in this movie is Abhijit’s student Shinjini (Sonali Sanyal ) is very much infatuated with him. She got upset that the man whom she loves is in an affair with another gal who is more suitable for him. Moreover when Shinjini proposed to Abhijit , he refused and kicked her out of the house. Now there is no remedy for women who is jealous for her love. I know. It’s really deep and she will play any nasty games either to get that guy back or, to defame the guy and other lady involved. The truth is that, the guy will not go even if he goes that will be for a very short term. So, it’s good not to keep any expectation from anyone or don’t give any expectations to anybody.
Now this vamp Shinjini also played a nasty game, like a sex scandal that Abhijit approached her with an indecent proposal and Abhijit is suspended from the college and he loses his job. Not only job, but also the reputation, peace, intelligence and more. So, Debjaani comes to the rescue and both going to Port Blaire. Debjaani is a doctor and she got an offer there, Abhijit also get a job , but he is unable to perform as a good teacher.
He is a mathematics professor where logic has to be used highly to interpret the formulas, now he is looking for the divine reasons on why all these things happened in his life. He is losing his technical knowledge and slowly drifting towards the side of philosophical and theological thoughts.
Why this happened in my life? Why am I here? What will happen to me? Why god put me in this situation?
If you are asking these questions often, kindly check your 9th house first. You may 80% see Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu, Neptune, Pluto or Uranus in that house. Then you check the 3rd house you may any of these planets there because from the 3rd house these planets will be aspecting the 9th house. You don’t see any planets in these houses; there will, of course, an aspect on this house from some other houses. Every planets aspect the 7th house. , Saturn, Mars, Rahu, and Ketu have additional aspects. Everyone ask such questions, but people like me like to jump into the deep ocean of theology or philosophy will have such weird combinations. There are other combinations which make you think this way, but I think the aggressive nature of such thoughts is indicated by the above-said placements.
Now, Debjaani and Abhijit are in Port Blaire, hoping to start everything afresh, but there also hurdles come up. New obstacle’s name is Subhro Sarkar (Indrasish Roy) . Debjaani’s friend who is there in Port Blaire. Abhijit becomes upset and worries about Debjaani getting closer with Subhro. Some arguments take place between both, and Debjaani is angry about Abhijit’s doubtful nature. Subhro is just a friend for her. One fine day Shubro meet with an accident and dies in front of them.
Abhijit can’t teach properly because he lost that technical knowhow or he can’t define the complex calculations satisfactorily to the students. The college is doing a background check and they find the Shinjini issue and Abhijit again loses the job. So the wound was deep, now it gets deeper. He is going after the deep philosophical meanings to teach the Mathematics and students are unhappy. Once he was a successful teacher who used to crack those complex calculations instantly. Now he is searching for the divine and philosophical reasons. He lost his dreams completely.
He does a retrospect. He started feeling that until Debjaani enters his life, his life was smooth. Debjaani herself is an orphan and this also adds the intensity to the Abhijit’s madness. His thoughts are like this
- The psychic told there is some unknown reason for every incident in our life.
- He is looking for that reason
- He finds the reason in Debjaani’s entry in his life.
- From the moment she entered in his life, troubles started coming to him.
Now he wants to leave Debjaani, because in his eyes she is the sole reason for his downfall. Now he wants to fly away from her so that start again…… he lost his reputation because of Shinjini , but the real reason was Debjani, He lost his research work because of Debjani, Shubro lost his life because of Debjaani, last , but not the least, Debjaani’s parents died in her childhood. What explains more about the ill omen which Debjaani carries? (Maybe she is born in Gandaanta Naskhathra LOL)
He comes home and tells Debjaani that he needs moksha from her . So of course she can’t take that. Well, if any lovers who feels their love life is sinking and have a fear that their spouse wants to say bye bye, kindly don’t block him or her in your life. Set them free…….You can’t block anything forcefully, the universe will chart it’s on course. Suppose I am in an affair and that guy is telling me “I need moksha from you, oh then you are the most welcome uncle, a door is open kindly get lost or F off.” But make sure you are not coming back because universe can’t stop for you or wait for you or me. I don’t like staying back in the time licking my wounds. I let them heal. So that new skin can cover up with more shine. So, don’t get emotionally attached to anyone, so that they will leave the deep wound in you.
Debjaani is trying to stop this guy and she says he has to kill her if he wants moksha aka mukthi. Abhijit is explaining to her why he cant continue , but she is provoking him. Please don’t provoke anyone in the relationship. If you see no chemistry then believes that his/her Karma has finished in your life and it’s time for him/her to leave you. Here Debjaani is provoking and finally, Abhijit kills her………..
Poor guy…….his life is totally gone.
Looking at her dead body he could not stop himself, he runs away……….While running away he gets a recorded message from Debjaani in his mobile. In the message, she was describing how she loves him and cared for him and she had a gift which can change their lives forever and it is at home. The poor guy runs back and finds a CD and when he plays it was the scanning a report of Debjaani and she is carrying his baby.
Ha………………..now the destruction is complete.
He should not have met that Psychic or she shouldn’t have told him what was in store for him……but
She told him
“Ek daage sa fark hota hey
Zindgi aur moth ke beech
Us fark ko mitne mat dena
Is dil se bachke rehna
Ajeeb aur gareeb khel khelta rehta hey Kameena
Chain jitna laata hey, dard use bhi zyada deta hey
The Rog( bimaari) called the heart claims many lives
Heer Ranjha, Laila Majnu,
Alone the lovers had nothing to lose
But when they got together,
They were destroyed
Try to stay away from love….try to stay away from it
If you don’t
Destiny will chart its own course………………………………
There are more things in heaven and earth Horatio. Which is bigger than your philosophy? .Tell me do you want to know it or to run away from it…….So why do you want to know it? Let the universe take its own troll guys……….
After the movie I was thinking
നമ്മുടെ ലാലേട്ടനും ശോഭന മാഡവുമായിരുന്നെങ്കില് ഇതൊരു ഇന്റര്നാഷനല് ഹിറ്റ് ആയേനെ ഈസ്റ്റ് ഓര് വെസ്റ്റ് ലാലേട്ടന് ഈസ് ദ ബെസ്റ്റ് . ആ മനുഷ്യനെ ഇത് ഹൃദയത്തില് തട്ടുന്ന രീതിയില് ചെയ്യാന് പറ്റൂ
