movie review

ROKTO

Director: Wazed Ali Sumon

Stars: Pori Moni, Roshan, Ashish Vidyarthi, Amit Hasan, Nader Chowdhury

Strength: Cast, Costume

Weakness: Story

Runtime: 140min

Rating: 2.5/5

PLOT: The story of a girl in search of her true identity after having lost her memory completely.

REVIEW: At the center of the film lies Pori Moni, who is the main reason for the long queue at the theatres. Her performance throughout the film was noteworthy, however, during the action sequences, she did not feel like she belonged to the scenes and as a result, it made her character look clumsy. Her costume selection was impeccable, which suited her brilliantly. Her English pronunciation however, could have been much better. Besides these issues, Pori Moni performed rather admirably. 

The songs in the film were uplifting, especially “Dana Kata Pori”, which elevated the audiences' enthusiasm. Making his debut with this film, Roshan performed commendably. His action sequences were quite entertaining, however, his dancing needs improving. The likes of Indian stars such as Ashish Vidyarthi contributed to the film greatly. The cinematography and production was also impressive.

The main weakness lies in the story, which is not very unique. Adding to that, the story was not properly narrated as a result, the movie lacked audience engagement. 

Overall, the movie will be appreciated by Pori Moni fans, but it could have been much better had there been a proper storytelling effort.
