Directed by Soumik Sen, Mahalaya is the story of attempting to replace the legendary Birendra Krishna Bhadra with Uttam Kumar, which is still being talked out as the momentous blunder. Not convinced with the hindi voice over of Prosenjit Chatterjee, there are major diction issues there. Jisshu Sengupta is a good pick to play Uttam Kumar, as is Subhashish Mukherjee for the icon. The film releases on March 1st, and is certainly likely to attract audience because of its subject. Hope the treatment is good as well.
