Story


Street Light is a 2011 Indian Bengali drama film released on Mar 11, 2011. The film is directed by Animesh Roy.

Amitava‘s wife Mitali is an ambitious lady and wants to become an actress. She leaves him and walks out and her vacuum is filled by Hiya, a call girl. She starts living in with him and things continue smoothly till one day at the anniversary party of Rana (friend of Amitava),Hiya comes across a doctor who had hired her services one day and he reveals to the entire world in a drunken state about her true identity.Amitava comes back home to find Mitali back. Who does he decide to spend his life with?


The director is right when he says that his "Street Light" is an urban story that unfolds through three characters. The conflict of interests, the precedence of male ego in a marriage, even though it is the culmination of years of romance that blossomed in college, infidelity, love in a marriage, ambition, "SL" tries giving a peek into all these aspects, which are not totally foreign in the journey called life. And these prepare the setting for the plot, which isn't the typical Tollywood fare, to unfold. Mitali (Locket) leaves her home and husband behind to turn her acting aspirations into reality. Amitabha (Abhishek), due to a certain incident under a street light, walks into Hiya's (Nibedita) life. With no wife for company and an empty house to come back to, Amitabha and Hiya soon find comfort in the confines of a live-in relationship. While Amitabha likes the free-spirited Hiya, he is in doubt whether he loves her in reality. Moving in and out of flashback mode, it becomes apparent that the husband is still not over his wife. The second half has the wife coming back from Mumbai because that life isn't for her and attempting to start afresh with Amitabha. One would expect some confrontation when the wife finds out about her husband's infidelity. But she chooses to be calm and understanding about it. Mitali confronts Hiya instead and comes back with a different opinion about the girl. This scene is interesting as Hiya makes Mitali come face-to-face with the harsh reality of life. She badgers this thought into her that Amitabha "f*** ed her the same way that he f*** ed Mitali and that for men they are nothing but a piece of flesh. The film has a generous dose of cuss words and conversations in English apart from a few intimate scenes, which could have been executed otherwise. It's a few from the cast, who take away from the film's merit. Nibedita, for one, needs to give some serious thought to her weighty issues and acting calibre if she intends to stick around. Certain sequences have faulty English, which makes matters worse. But while on acting, Abhishek, Locket and Arjun as Amitabha's friend and physician do lift the grade a few notches. The film truly scores with its music. The numbers, "Aaj raate amar sathe" , "Jani re mon tor sobhabe abhab jabe na" , "Janam thika" strike a chord with the audience.
