The father’s who are siblings jointly have a business of beedi. Roy Beedi is an established name and the Roy’s who are a resident of Chowdhury Lane of North Kolkata now want their son’s to find a way of their own and become independent. Twice unable to qualify their graduation, the perplexed sons forge their mark sheets and show it to their fathers expecting expensive gifts but instead get badly thrashed and chided by their fathers. But this has little impact on these bullies’s and they now focus on impressing girls and shed off their ‘single’ status.

Directed by debutant Srijeet the comedy short film characterizes a commonplace picture of the lanes and alleys of the City of Joy with which we Kolkatans are more or less familiar. A Subho, a Joy, an Abhi or a Priyo is a replica that each of us might have come across in our own families, neighborhoods or among our distant acquaintances. A laudable initiative by Bej Films & MediaTubelight’ has the collaborative team work from all the leads as well as supporting actors which makes it an entertaining watch. The actors all being novice puts up a commendable act.

Fed up with the mischief of their sons and never ending complaints the distressed fathers finally send them off to their aunt’s place at Siliguri. Heartbroken and constrained the mischief makers now start off to their new destination with a heavy heart. Will Siliguri be at peace now? Watch the full movie here.
