‘Bye Bye Bangkok’, a new comedy movie by director Aniket Chatterjee, consists of many colorful characters in the main role. His first movie ‘Chha e Chhuti ‘ (2010) received the best Experimental Film award.
The story revolves around four couples, played by Anjana Basu – Shilajit Majumdar, Sonali Chowdhury – Kharaj Mukherjee , Kanchan Mullick – Kanchana Moitra, Sujan Mukherjee – Locket Chatterjee. Avijit Banerjee (Sujan), owner of a software company lands up in Bangkok with his absent-minded secretary (Swastika Mukherjee). His wife Anwesha (Locket Chatterjee) comes to Bangkok with her driver Sadhucharan (Rudranil Ghosh). Anirban (Shilajit) is an ad film maker who dreams of becoming a popular film maker and he is going around with producer Pritha (Sonali) to check out the location of his film. The duo ends up in Bangkok too. Anjana, wife of Shilajit is a professor of philosophy. She wins of a TV contest ‘Biscuit Khaao Pattaya Jao’ and gets a free trip to Bangkok. And, she ends up accompanying a salesman named Kanchan. Whereas, Kanchana, model wife of Kanchan, visits Bangkok with Kharaj who a real estate man who is husband of Sonali. Somehow they all land up in Bangkok and stay in the same hotel. The story if hide and seek starts from here. Kanchan hides himself under the sand to escape from his wife. Sadhucharan calls the hotel manager with many names to figure out if he can speak Bengali. Amongst these series of fun filled events, one day the fire alarm strikes in the hotel due to smoking by Rudraneel. This event brings all of them together outside of the hotel and the couples get exposed to each other. They all blame Sadhucharan for creating the smoke and spoiling the mood, but, Sadhucharan asks them to point the finger to themselves.
The character of Biswajit Chakraborty as a travel agent is very funny. Guest Artist Rajatabha Dutta’s performance is as expected. Music is good with Rabindra sangeet. Pattya, specially the blue water, sea beaches, the streets, landscape around Bangkok have been captured beautifully by Premendu Bikash Chaki.
