    Ainabaji A great improvement in Bangladeshi Box office cinematography

    A great combination of story and direction nice cinematography.
    Promising acting overall a great work. Amitab reza a new director from
    Bangladesh who just showed that it possible to do a better work if you
    give such effort. A great combination of thriller, romance and comedy.
    Its kind of a psychological thriller. Chanchal Ahmed a great actor
    showed his talent. I would suggest every movie lovers to watch this
    movie in the theater. Its a pre-release review so a details review will
    come soon after the release. This is the directors first big screen
    direction. I always loved his work. He did some excellent drama in
    Bangladeshi TV drama.

    Aynabaji: Exceptionally Good

    Amitabh Raza: He is one of the finest maker in Bangladesh. Previously
    he made so many excellent TV dramas and commercials, so when I heard
    that he’s coming into the big screen and making his debut film, I was
    so thrilled and excited. Besides that, Rashed Zaman, the
    cinematographer (whom I call Bangladesh’s Emmanuel Lubezki) was the
    other captivating element of this film which entices me even more.
    Today, I went to see the film which was the very first day of it’s
    release and came back home with wide wonderment and joy.

    The lead actor, Chanchal Chowdhury is one of the brightest actor in
    this generation. Before, he was so good in Monpura (2009) and
    Television (2013). And now in Aynabaji he simply enchanted and stole
    the whole show single handedly. I can guarantee, he will win The
    National Award for sure. The story line was so unique and had so much
    depth, which allows Chanchal to make it more blazed. Chanchal is a
    sheer virtuoso of acting and this is obviously his best work so far.

    Not only Chanchal, the others actors, actress also put up a good show.
    Lutfur Rahman George, Partho Barua acted very well. Masuma Rahman
    Nabila was surprisingly good. There were some teeny tiny irrationality
    with the story line, but they are absolutely negligible, because if you
    want to compare with Bangladeshi Standard, Aynabaji was exceptionally
    good. In camera work, in sound editing and mixing, in casting ensemble,
    in costume, the whole film so skillfully mastered. The songs are pretty
    good, the script has so many punches and humors.

    Hats off to the whole team. This movie is highly recommended for all,
    to the general viewer and also for the other people who kind of love to
    see different tracks of movies.

    Best movie ever in Bengali..

    In Bangladesh movie industry are not helpful, standard and they are not
    developed. But some directors are really hard and soul trying to
    developing this sector. Amitabh Reza Chowdhury one of them. This is the
    only crime movie which is goes to level of Hollywood. Story, direction,
    casting, screenplay all of sector they did very well. It’s a crime
    movie, and it full fills our expectation. Last twist is extremely
    awesome. which is quit awesome. If you did not see this movie, go
    hurry!! see the movie. you’l love it.. Chanchal Chowdhury, Masuma
    Rahman Nabila they are heavy weight actor in Bangladeshi movie
    industry.

    History made in Bangladeshi Cinema

    May be some people could say that it is overrated or something like
    that but actually this movie is a piece.A challenging role played by
    Chanchal Chowdhury make the movie special.Every small role was given
    importance by Director. Amitabh Reza Chowdhury was the real kick
    ass.His shooting with a drawn was a great
    idea.Location,photography,cinematography,cas ting,costume,set
    designing,editing ; everything was just awesome.The story was unique
    and different. The dialogue was the best of Bangladeshi Cinema.Some
    dialogue contains a deep meaning.It is worth to watch.And obviously in
    Cinema Hall.

    Glorified,Longer version of a ”TV ADVERT”

    Female lead has no clue whatsoever what she is doing! It is quite clear
    she doesn’t know or understand very basic concepts of acting! We have
    hoodwinked by a false AD campaign run by the producer’s PR company!
    complete waste of time and money! There are TV dramas which are million
    time better than this! Director was clearly no clue when casting this
    awful lot. Since when partho, that talk show host became actors only
    god knows! Chanchal is the only good thing in this movie and clearly
    show difference between a born actor and people who randomly acts in TV
    adverts! He tries to carry to the whole movie on is shoulder but after
    first half fails miserably! A talented actor like him deserved better
    co stars…at least some people who actually can act!

    Best Bengali movie so far

    Hello everyone. Aynabaji! Best Bengali movie I have ever seen 🙂 Good
    job Amitav Reza. Smart debut for you! Story, Cinematography and
    Background musics were awesome! And hats off to Chanchal Chowdhury for
    his dedication and brilliant performance. Without any doubt, this is a
    new era for Bengali film industry. Such a brilliant work from Aynabaji
    team! Good suspense and thriller! Very good art film from Amitav Reza.
    He has potential to do good works.

    Newcomer Nabila was very natural. And this movie deserves some awards

    anyway . It was great to see house full Cinema halls again in
    Bangladesh . Thank you!

    Aynabaji : Pure Bangladeshi Story with Fabulous Cinematography

    One of the good movies of recent times. I like the uniqueness of the
    plot. Probably this is the first Bangladeshi movie that tries drama and
    suspense genre with pure Bangladeshi urban flavor. It’s mesmerizing to
    see familiar locations like Paribag, Puran Dhaka, Sadar Ghat etc with
    subliminal frames. Chanchal Chowdhury again showed why he was awarded
    National Film Awards back in 2009.

    Though the film has an unique plot line but I feel somewhere it lacks a
    bit depth as a full length feature film (probably it’s the expectation
    from such a talented bunch of creative peoples). The second thing is
    the slow momentum and pace of events, sometimes you need to wait a bit
    more to see next events to happen. And the last thing is over using of
    drone and new/unknown frames to present the sequences. No doubt it is a
    sex for eyes to see such beautiful cinematography but this also
    distracts you and make you to give more attention on cinematography and
    frames (technical aspects) than the story itself.

    However, the hype creating and overwhelming response of the crowds
    inspire us that there is still a big market for Bangladeshi movies, our
    movies.

    Best thriller of all times in bangla cinema.

    I have seen this movie thinking that it will be a waste of time. But
    once the movie started, I had no idea that how it dragged me into the
    story. Picturization was very realistic. There are small loop holes
    though, but a viewer will not notice it if seen once. Other than that
    it was a flaw less script. no where did it feel that something it was
    abrupt. The story was created as an experienced story teller. Nowhere
    did I feel that this particular scene was of no use. It had humor,
    taste of suspense, thrill; in total a perfect package. Truly this movie
    has raised the bars of bangla cinema. It is not for any specific group
    of audience rather it is for audience of all ages.

    My expression after seeing this movie, as it ended – I just jumped out
    of my seat and was shouting out ”I do wish to see part 2 of this
    movie….”

    Simply a wonderful piece of work.

    brilliant direction,casting, exceptional story, best Bangla movie ever

    All casting is awesome. Chanchal Chowdhury as Ayna is the best part of
    the movie. His performance is simply outstanding. Amitav Reza Chowdhury
    just made a blast on the city by this movie. and the best part of the
    movie is i have never seen ending like that. Totally different ending.
    I was surprised and thinking what he have done !!! Bangla film industry
    was not in a good condition. I think it will be in a good shape after
    that movie. The name of this movie is so much related to the story.
    very nice, smart and choosy name.Thanks to Syed Gaosul Alam Shaon for
    such a good story. Ayna is a magician of acting. He made an illusion to
    the society.

    A new taste of movie

    This is my first time review writing to IMDb, please pardon me for
    mistakes.

    According to Bangladeshi movie industry, ”Aynabaji” gave us a totally
    new taste. It’s absolutely a new trend for movie industry. ”Chanchal
    Chowdhury” proved his talent again; all other shiny actors (including
    actress) did a very good job. Thanks to all.

    Choreography was wonderful and I recommend everyone to watch this
    movie.

    Most importantly, I would like to thank ”Amitabh Reza Chowdhury” and
    Sound designer for using modern sound recording technology. For long
    time I didn’t visit cinema hall for watching any Bangla movie and
    surprisingly this is the first time I found separate sound tracks has
    been used in Bangla movie (In Bangladesh). According to my observation
    I think sound track was recorded using 7.1 channels or 6.1 channels and
    also of course Dolby noise reduction technology has been used.

    If the sound recording engineer doesn’t mind then I would like to say,
    there was one mistake and that is, when the political person was
    speaking from behind then his voice was coming through front or center
    channels. There could be another improvement, when the train was moving
    rightwards; the sound should be fade-out/fade-in to right back channel
    whereas sound directly gone to rear right channel. Thank you.

    Ayna, a struggling actor, gets to live his profession in real life after failing in his career. A story about the dark side of metro city Dhaka.

    This is a trademark cynicism. Ayanabaji has very consciously picked up
    the story of the image of social conflict of locality . People live in
    the midst of nature. Dialectics of the realities of the main themes of
    the movie. Director has cleared all his talent and labor. The story has
    become a full movie Ayanabaji as per variation of screenplay structure,
    humorous dialogue and full dedication to be a successful production in
    the contemporary period.

    Musical arrangement was so touchy and emotionally attracted.Uniqueness
    of artistic way of art direction and so far every single shot provokes
    every mango audience to fixed in their seat. Cinematographer Rashed
    Zaman has done a tremendous job for giving his merit of knowledge of
    experience in every single shot to made screenplay as if live
    imagination.

    Besides, traditional Bengali film footprint it is little bit quite
    different for its story telling process as per ‘dark comedy’ images can
    be found in the Screen. Simply, other sides of coin of life compared as
    exchange of mirror reflection of the life story is Ayanabaji.

    Scripted by the director to portray the struggle of life without
    fantasy. it is not a fairy tale . Film is larger than life proves to be
    concerned of.

    Each character in the film has been able to establish a spiritual
    relationship with the audience. present themselves in very honest way
    without any kind of fraud with audience. Class character portrayed
    honestly has the right to present positions and relationships.

    Sound-light-period game has increased artistic value of movie
    audiences’ interest and attraction. Shot continuity able to properly
    present the series of events as his urban structure creates a unique
    illusion.

    Filmmaker expresses his devotion and honesty. Lexical artistic value
    not the slightest compromise.All of the lexical grammar of the film’s
    existence has drastically Ayanabaji reformation.

    Its a time to be a change maker. Turn to take responsibility.

    In Ayanabaji you’re probably familiar with the people there. Ayanabaji
    either side of your story. Above all, we can;Ayanabaji able to build on
    our originality. Ayanabaji bet to catch the picture. Please accounts
    …. You bet. You may see the other side of the mirror,smiling face;
    the smile of pleasure.

    When it’s not ‘so bad it’s good’ but actually good

    Movie Review: Aynabaji (আয়নাবাজি)

    This was going to be a solid 5-star. Then the ending happened, which is
    too abrupt at best and too convenient at worst. But let’s begin at the
    beginning, shall we?

    If you live in the city, (or if you read the newspaper, or if you don’t
    live in a cave, basically) you won’t be surprised with the fact that if
    you do a crime here, you don’t always have to do the time. Money and
    power, that’s what you need, and you can go scot-free. Oh, there’s one
    other thing you need, though. That’s Mr. Aayna (Chonchol Chowdhury).
    Why do you need him? He is only a cook after all, he works in ships.
    He’s simple and he’s nice- he even has a drama school for the street
    children in the neighborhood. But is all really what it seems? Is Aayna
    really at the sea when he disappears every other month or so? Or is he
    somewhere else, like, in someone else’s life? Is he taking their place,
    doing their things, being them?

    Reporter Saber Something (forgot the last name, played by Partho) is
    having a bad day, on the other hand. His divorce is final, his news is
    non-existent since people are shutting their doors on his face, and
    when he does get a scoop, boss won’t hear of it. So he drinks, and his
    manservant/self-appointed guardian (Jamil from Meerakkel) is literally
    the only one who cares about him. But a reporter’s gotta report, and
    following Aayna around is bound to give him some proof, right? But it’s
    not as easy as it sounds. Aayna plays his game, and better.

    But hey, there’s a new babe in the block, so let’s focus on that for a
    sec. Hridi (Nabila) isn’t your typical girl-next-door. I mean, she is,
    but if you are a single bachelor in living in the neighborhood, she’ll
    flirt with you over vegetable carts, bring you cake for no reason and
    plan a trip to Sylhet with you in a heartbeat even though she knows
    practically nothing about you. Girlfriend is either really gullible or
    really stupid. But what she does in the move is raise the stakes- which
    way would Aayna go? Love and acceptance? Or the biggest gig of his life
    that’s also the biggest risk he’ll ever take? Does he really have a
    choice?

    The movie has a fantastic premise, and it works because of its
    magnificent actor. Chonchol Chowdhury carries this move and he will
    easily have you in awe. You’ll clap at his skills, hoot at his sass and
    lol at his quips. He is a sympathetic protagonist too. His work is
    shady and so are his motives- why is he doing this? Money? Escape from
    his own miserable life? The rush of the game, the playing of a new
    character? Would you care? Because I think not, and I think in the end
    you will root for him, as did I and a houseful of people at the
    first-day-first-show today.

    All the other actors were good too. Except Partho wasn’t really given a
    lot to do and Nabila sometimes sounds a little fake. Acting, overall,
    isn’t the problem in the movie. The balance between serious and fun is
    also perfect.

    What is the problem, then? It’s the last half-an-hour.

    See, the movie isn’t very fast paced, and I should warn you right now
    that if you’re looking for masala, you won’t find any here. Even the
    ass-first intro of a girl (it was in the trailer) doesn’t result in an
    item song. The songs play no part in the narrative, all of them are in
    the background pretty much. And none of that is a problem. A movie can
    take its time to get going and still keep you hooked. The problem is
    when you lose the urgency.

    The movie is almost over. The net is closing in on Aayna. Can he get
    out of the mess he’s in? Can anyone help him? Can he help himself? Will
    he listen to reason? You want to find out, but all you’re getting is
    unnecessary scenes with Nabila which is taking up time which could be
    used to flesh out Aayna’s final chapter. And them the climax happens
    and it’s too convenient, too sudden- you might even feel it to be
    improbable. It’s not, really, but it feels that way because it came out
    of nowhere. I can’t stop thinking how much better, cooler, tighter it
    could be if it were done more slowly, more gradually. You’ll be happy
    it ended that way, but you will also be thinking, ‘That was too easy.’

    Also, there was some choppy editing in the second half where you can’t
    tell how many days have passed between events.

    Aaynabaji is strong enough. It is well-acted, well-directed, well-shot
    and well-written, except for the climax, maybe. But that’s really not
    reason enough not to watch it. With the kind of movies Dhallywood
    churns out every year- including movies that try to set themselves
    apart but falls flat (*coughPodmoPatayJolGangsterReturnsOstitto*cough),
    this is gold. So be classy and go support a good movie so we can get
    more of these and less of violence filled bullshit.

    4 .25 out of 5 stars.

    P.S. There are three cameos. One will make girls happy.

    A sort of superhero movie

    One of the best exceptional creation of Bengali movie industry is
    ”Aynabaji”. Very much unlike with traditional bengali movies that are
    produced in both Bangladesh and India.

    The main role is ”Sharafat Karim Ayna”, which is characterized by
    Chanchal Chowdhury, has some sorts of by-borne supernatural quality to
    copy any one’s behavior. He also has the ability to enter anyone’s mind
    and can direct the people around him. He goes to the prison keeping the
    real criminal outside by the exchange of money and anyone can’t
    recognise him. Throughout this movie ”Ayna” enters to the prison
    instead of several criminals in different times. But at last he gets
    trapped as the criminal instead of whom Ayna comes to prison, is
    charged for death penalty. And through this the story goes on.

    The movie is remarkable for it’s exceptional storyline. Such a
    character like Ayna is so difficult to be characterized. The director
    was significantly successful. Cinematography was pretty good. Though it
    contains several numbers of flaws throughout. It was the first Movie
    for the director but he did his best. Some irregularities can be seen,
    though for a low budget movie some flaws are very tough to remove
    Overall, thanx to all the cast, crews and everyone. Hope all the flaws
    can be removed and we will get ”Aynabji-2” or it’s sequel. Very best of
    luck to the Aynabaji team.

    Aynabaji: A movie that every Bengali waiting for

    It seems a very typical Bangladeshi movie that made by a drama director
    in the first 10 minutes but suddenly the super synchronizing of
    Chanchal’s acting and background music you will feel the a thrill that
    you never felt before in the history of Bangladeshi cinema! The thrill
    that every Bangladeshi cinema lover waiting for the century, Aynabaji
    will end your waiting with it’s dramatic story, acting, sound and
    cinematography. No movie is 100% perfect and also this but the last 30
    minutes of the movie will help to forgot every error of the movie. What
    a super finishing of the movie.

    Pelase go to the near hall (must be: Jamuna, Bashundhara or Shamoly)
    and feel the movie like never before!

    One of the best movie from Bangladesh

    Aynabaji is a title, which is simply just one of a kind. An unique,
    classical drama movie, where we find a simple actor Ayna, leading his
    life through acting in his real life performing various roles. Though
    the story may seem simple when we just read the plot, oh boy, trust me,
    It has one of the best and unique plot which you have never heard of!

    The suspense, the simple romance between Ayna and Hridi, the glorious
    plot and the sequences all were up to the level, where I thought ”Am I
    really watching a movie which was made in Bangladesh?” wow!!!!!

    This movie really shows us how men with wealth and high power leads
    their life in this corrupted society, It beautifully pointed out a dark
    side of Bangladesh which was mesmerizing to explore throughout the
    whole movie! Truly marvellous.

    Great work by Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, the director of this film.
    Casting crew were also great in their respective roles. Chanchal
    Chowdhury, who played the main character ”Ayna” in this movie has done
    his role superbly.

    A must watch movie for everyone. Trust me, this movie is worth your
    money and time. I hope many brave directors will come out of the
    shadows with their excellent works after seeing how this ”classic”
    movie rocked the whole nation ”Bangladesh”.

    Excellent

    I watched Aynabaji on the release at Block Buster Cinema. Wonderful
    movie. Different story, cinematography. Everything was wonderful. Hope
    people of Bangladesh will watch more Bangla movies in cinema halls.
    Most favorite dialog in this movie: Everything is true for everyone,
    but for me, only acting. Chanchal Choudhury was great. He put a new
    milestone here. Amitabh Reza always a great director. Good-luck to
    Aynabaji team. Thanks for giving us such a wonderful movie. I want to
    watch it again and again. Creative script writer. Think tank with great
    vision Mr Gausul Azam has written this script. Music composed by Arnob
    & Fuhad. Music legends of current period in all over the world. Chircut
    gonna add extra flavor on it.

    A true masterpiece!! Worth watching

    I was not a fan of Bengali (Bangladeshi) movie. This is the first
    Bengali movie I have added to my IMDb watch list and also this is my
    very first movie review on IMDb. I couldn’t resist to write this
    because I want people to know that how awesome this movie is! It made
    history on Bangladeshi cinema indeed, also won lot of peoples heart
    including mine.

    The story, plot, cinematography, sounds, casts you name it and it’s
    perfect. Everyone in this movie did a tremendously brilliant job. I am
    just impressed!

    Chanchal Chowdhury did a marvelous acting. Also Partho Barua and Nabila
    gave a wonderful rendition. Every other small characters were perfect.
    It’s full of fun and thrills and suspense. The locations were great
    too. Hats off to Amitabh Reza for his brilliant direction. The story
    and dialogues were also fantastic. In a nutshell Aynabaji is a true
    masterpiece. Everything you want is packed wonderfully in this movie.

    I am really happy to see Bangladeshi film makers doing such a mind
    blowing job.

    unexpected

    I don’t remember when I last found an intellectual movie in this part
    of continent which genuinely made me laugh. even though I watched the
    trailer the story was still able to shock me. Their use of moments(slow
    motion/wide shot with chilling background sounds) left me awed. Because
    I had no idea a Bangla movie could achieve this. They had a few
    clichés. But the acting didn’t let yourself get out of the story.
    Thankfully no overdose of celebrities for commercial success .
    Although, I am still finding their voice amplifying annoying. Maybe it
    causes less trouble in understanding a sentence, but can’t shake the
    feeling it seems artificial. In my opinion that’s the only thing left
    for this industry in achieving perfection. All in all, unexpectedly
    good.I just turned into a fan of Amitabh Reza Chowdhury.

  • Mir RashedOctober 8, 2016Reply

    Only one word *Excellent* Movie

    After many days when I saw the Bengali film,Aynabaji actually a nice
    picture.

    If movie like this, possible to make in our country then it will be not
    late to back the golden image of our movie industry.

    Thanks a lot director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, who gift such a wonderful
    movie And thank you so much my dear actor Chanchal Chowdhury is to
    remind us that we still have such a talented actor so we can be proud
    of, we can say that we are not far behind than Bollywood or Hollywood.

    Last and not the list just waiting for another picture that will come
    out and which will have to see again and again.

    character. I can guarantee Its worth watching in theater ! you can just
    watch it without popcorn!

    One of the best Bengali movies in recent years.

    Story & Direction – Director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury did really a very
    good job. Direction was just fabulous. The story is simple and unique
    but very charming. Twists and turns of the movie are also very
    effective and coherence with the story line. The most important thing
    of the story is that there is no unnecessary scene or event in the
    entire movie. Every person seen in the screen has some important role.
    But there are some things that i am not totally satisfied, the story
    could be more deep at some points, some things are not explained fully.
    But comparing to the other Bengali movies in recent years the story is
    more close to reality.

    Acting – The acting of the casts makes the movie very enjoyable.
    Especially Chanchal Chowdhury did an over the top acting. This is
    undoubtedly his best and one of the best performance i have ever seen.
    I am convinced that he is one of the most talented actors in our
    country. Nabila also did a very good performance as her debut in
    cinema. Even the small characters of the movie also did very good
    acting.

    Cinematography – We can see a renewed Dhaka in this film. The shots
    from the above was so good. Traffic jam, daily life, rainy day
    everything has been shown in such a way that it feels our life, our
    story, our beloved city.

    Background music – The songs and the music is just awesome. Every song
    of the movie is perfectly coherent with the story.

    At last, again thanks to the director, producers, cinematographer and
    hundreds of others behind this for giving us a good film. We expect
    more films like this every year from our film industry.

    Amitabh Reza kept his promises…

    It’s great to see cinema halls full of people cheering and laughing and
    enjoying a good film. I couldn’t watch it right after the release but I
    managed to watch it on second week and I must admit the director
    Amitabh Reza surely kept his promises. We waited for his first feature
    film for a long time. He comes with great promises and he delivers a
    very enjoyable psycho-political thriller with a tone of romantic story
    line which didn’t disappoint me at all. Now, instead of saying it
    pleased me, I said it didn’t disappoint me. Why? Let’s get to that
    later.

    A man named Sharafat Karim Ayna serves time in jail for convicted
    criminals in exchange of money. He is a born actor, imitates anyone
    within minutes and manipulates anyone with his hypnotic personality. If
    you pay him well you don’t have to be in jail, he would do that for you
    happily. This guy loves his con acting and loves his mercenary
    transformation from one character to another. There is something
    thrillingly artistic about his life. He isn’t bothered about the
    morality of the act, considers himself a real life actor which makes
    the character more interesting. A woman comes into his life and a
    curious journalist starts asking questions. Great outline, great
    premise. The story begins.

    The story promised a gripping tale of a con artist and you need a great
    actor to pull it off. Chanchal Chowdhury has done an outstandingly
    brilliant job on the male lead. Watching him transitioning from
    character to character was a delight. All the characters he played were
    believable especially the transformation into a rogue politician
    against his will was a showcase of sheer brilliance. The chemistry
    between him and the female lead Nabila needed more attention. She
    looked very refreshing yet a little artificial often. The storytelling
    has a few loopholes, clichés and continuation mistakes which I decided
    to ignore because of the overall experience. The ending seemed a bit
    disappointing and unbelievable at first but I am happy that it’s
    actually believable if you know the protagonist well. There are
    suggestions and references in the film for the explanation. But I
    expected a grand ending. I was expecting a proper ‘prestige’ act. The
    director shared his perception about religious fanatics subtly. Comic
    reliefs were put in proper intervals and I enjoyed some of them.
    Background score was exquisitely well. Background scores were holding
    the intensity when required. The Best thing about this movie is the
    cinematography. The depiction of the Dhaka city was nearly poetic,
    melancholic, romantic and alive at the same time. Every character and
    place got their appropriate angles. It was never visually dull.

    I heard about a Korean film (Tumbleweed, 2013) with an exactly similar
    synopsis. I watched that one immediately after this. Apart from the one
    liner synopsis and a few minor questionable similarities, the two films
    are totally separate films. We can say everything that Korean film was
    missing we got those in ‘Aynabaji’. The Korean one says that he serves
    jail for other people but we never see him doing that sort of anything
    in the film. On the contrary, the main lead in Aynabaji kept dazzling
    us with his versatile character jumping all the way to the end. That
    Korean film cannot be an inspiring one and even it is, I would say
    Amitabh Reza has created a whole new story and done much better. Unlike
    Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, who completely copied the concept of
    ”Vizontele” and reversed it.

    The thing that annoyed me most about this film is the ongoing rating
    mania on IMDb. I saw 1500 people rated this film 10/10 before its
    release (29/9/2016). Sometimes people do that on IMDb but let’s admit
    it; 1500 general audience from Bangladesh did not register on IMDb to
    rate this film before its release. This was done under some PR
    campaign. This was the start and after that, thousands of people
    started acting like T-1000 with a mission to give a 10/10 rating to
    save the Bengal film industry. If the IMDb authority checks these
    accounts, they would find all these 8000 votes came from accounts which
    were opened before or after the release of the film. It’s just funny
    that some people want 8000 fake ratings for a film.

    In the end, I have to admit that I was tired of watching our promising
    directors making trash one after another. ”Aynabaji” is a complete
    exception to that. ”Aynabaji” is an entertaining film and it
    entertained me in different levels. This is a great effort for a first
    feature film and we would be eagerly waiting with positive enthusiasm
    for the next film from Amitabh Reza.

    Renaissance in dhallywood

    First if all, this type of movie is the first of its kind in Dhallywood
    industry. Moreover, we have not encountered such plot before in
    Bangladesh. It was quite interesting to watch. I have left visiting
    cineplex due to poor performances by the Bangladeshi movie stars, but
    this movie created huge excitement throughout the country since the
    release of its trailer. It actually compelled me to find a gap between
    my final exam and visit the cineplex. After more than a decade, we have
    seen Bangladeshi cineplexes declaring Housefull. It is certainly a good
    sign and I welcome Amitabh Reza for this renaissance. Now, most of the
    time we have seen that an exciting trailer fails to provide an exciting
    film. But this movie was different. It has pointed out our social
    anomaly in quite with style and definitely has claimed its spot in my
    heart. Lead role played by ‘Monpoora’ movie star Chanchal and he was
    more than impressive. It was really very difficult to act in several
    roles with such perfection . New comer heroine was also up to the mark.
    But some sub-ordinates were disappointing due to over acting. But the
    good news is that- they couldn’t mark a spot in the thrill of this
    movie. If I am going to make a list of all time top 10 bangladeshi
    movie, it will be certainly there. Best wishes for Amitabh reza and co.
    for revival of Dhallywood

    better

    Female lead has no clue whatsoever what she is doing! It is quite clear
    she doesn’t know or understand very basic concepts of acting! We have
    hoodwinked by a false AD campaign run by the producer’s PR company!
    complete waste of time and money! There are TV dramas which are million
    time better than this! Director was clearly no clue when casting this
    awful lot. Since when partho, that talk show host became actors only
    god knows! Chanchal is the only good thing in this movie and clearly
    show difference between a born actor and people who randomly acts in TV
    adverts! He tries to carry to the whole movie on is shoulder but after
    first half fails miserably! A talented actor like him deserved better
    co stars…at least some people who actually can act!

    A new age of bangla movie can start from here.

    What do you expect when you start watching a bangla movie?If you ask me
    this question,I”ll say that i expect almost same type of fiction,same
    type of romance and some unbelievable fights and so on.But this movie
    has changed the taste of bangla movie.And it will change yours too.

    The main difference with the other bangla movies is it has a strong
    plot of events.the flow of the story is so fluent and easy to catch for
    all kind of audience.Though you know about what is happening but you
    will not be bored or the mysteriousness of the movie will not be
    decreased.

    chanchal chowdhury who showed his talents in the movie ‘monpura’,
    proved his skill once again.Without his extra-ordinary acting skill
    this movie cant be as popular as now it is.all the bangali movie
    lovers,this is a highly recommend movie for you all.it will be one of
    your favorite movie without any doubt.

    Best Bangladeshi Movie Experience!

    I had stopped watching Bangladeshi movies from last 6 years. But this
    year, after watching the trailer of Aynabaji, it inspired me to go on
    Hall and watch this movie. And after getting out from there, i think it
    was my best experience. I recommend it for everyone.

    The main character played the best role here. Chanchal Chowdhury acted
    very perfectly. And the director Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, i don’t want
    to disrespect him. He is very creative and the best. The character
    Ayna, it was very interesting. As my view, everyone of the hall enjoyed
    the movie very very much. Hope to receive more great movies like this
    one.

    বুঝনাই ব্যাপার টা !!!

    A great combination of story and direction nice cinematography.
    Promising acting overall a great work. Amitab reza a new director from
    Bangladesh who just showed that it possible to do a better work if you
    give such effort. A great combination of thriller, romance and comedy.
    Its kind of a psychological thriller. Chanchal Ahmed a great actor
    showed his talent. I would suggest every movie lovers to watch this
    movie in the theatre. Its a pre-release review so a details review will
    come soon after the release. This is the directors first big screen
    direction. I always loved his work. He did some excellent drama in
    Bangladeshi TV drama.

    One of the best movie in Bangla film industry!

    This is a great movie I ever was seen. First time I set and complete a
    movie in one change and this is Aynabaji. I will love to go again with
    family to enjoy this movie again! Thanks!

    Musical arrangement was so touchy and emotionally attracted. The
    uniqueness of artistic way of art direction and so far every single
    shot provokes every mango audience to fixed in their seat.
    Cinematographer Rashed Zaman has done a tremendous job for giving his
    merit of knowledge of experience in every single shot to made
    screenplay as if live imagination.

    Besides, traditional Bengali film footprint it is a little bit quite
    different for its storytelling process as per ‘dark comedy’ images can
    be found in the Screen. Simply, other sides of the coin of life
    compared to an exchange of mirror reflection of the life story are
    Ayanabaji.

    Scripted by the director to portray the struggle of life without
    fantasy. it is not a fairy tale . The film is larger than life proves
    to be concerned of.

    Each character in the film has been able to establish a spiritual
    relationship with the audience. present them in a very honest way
    without any kind of fraud with the audience. The class character
    portrayed honestly has the right to present positions and
    relationships.

    The sound-light-period game has increased artistic value of movie
    audiences’ interest and attraction. Shot continuity able to properly
    present the series of events as his urban structure creates a unique
    illusion.

    Thank you

    Awesome Movie!

    So, today i saw Aynabaji and this movie forced me to write something
    about it. Aynabaji is a metro thriller movie directed by Amitabh Reza
    Chowdhury and starring Chanchal Chowdhury, Masuma Rahman Nabila, Partho
    Barua etc.

    Outstanding Performance of Chanchal Chowdhury! Great Acting! Nice
    Direction and Camera shot.

    Chanchal Chowdhury has pulled off few great tricks of diving deep into
    character detailing, it was a treat to watch the ‘training scenes’.
    Masuma Rahman Nabila acted superbly well in the film, her simplicity of
    acting the role was reflected positively towards audiences. Dress
    design was also done well in the movie.

    A thriller with world class quality

    Aynabaji is a thriller movie which surprises us all. The plot of the
    movie is very unique & interesting. Most amazing part of the movie is
    the cinematography. It’s like the road in front of my house could be
    different if it represent me differently. The soundtracks of the movie
    are also very elegant.

    In Bangladeshi film industry, ”Aynabaji” is a very unique one. From the
    beginning till the end this movie makes us thinking what will happen
    next.

    All the actors in the movie are doing very well. Chanchal Chowdhury
    shows all the talent he got. His acting really surprises me. The new
    face Nabila also did great. With all the thrilling part there are some
    romances in this movie also. Those scenes give the perfume to imaging
    sweet moment.

    Overall this is an excellent movie. Everybody should watch it. This
    movie is full of quality.

    Great Cinematography

    The script was fantastic, the theme was fascinating, acting was
    incredible specially Chanchal Choudhury. The cinematography of the
    movie is stunning. The story is really well crafted and the passage
    from one scene to another can be great, a very pretty movie with
    unusual camera angles. Dhaka never seemed so alive & beautiful. It is
    one of the few Bengali films that deserves to be seen multiple times.
    Amitabh Reza Chowdhury did a great job with his amazing direction.

    Though the movie has few flaws in logic and story but it can be
    overlooked. What so ever, this movie is awesome. In fact, it is
    teaching us about that, if someone wants to find peace and do things
    with a cool mind, he or she should hear to his or her subconscious
    mind. This movie showed the pathway to the successful commercial film.
    As a Bengali film its worth watching…..

  • Nabila KhushiOctober 16, 2016Reply

    Effortlessly Captivating

    This one sets new benchmark for both Bangladeshi and Bengali films. A+
    is every department – plot, cinematography, script, cast and music.
    Aynabaji is probably the first Bengali movie that will keep you glued
    to the screen without a moment of break. I didn’t find one loose second
    in the film. Its the most visually delightful Bangladeshi movie till
    date. Old Dhaka, already quiet charming but chaotic – is presented as a
    wonderland! If you have grown up in Dhaka or are familiar with Dhaka
    political power-play, this story would be nothing unbelievable to you.
    It feeds in to the curiosity you already have. To be frank, Chanchal
    Chowdhury raises the bar for Bangladeshi movie actor too high. His
    transformation to different characters feels effortless and natural.
    Debutant Nabila does justice to her character as well. Casting is
    sensible – though we’d be happy to not see Partho Barua in this
    masterpiece. Music isn’t the best feature of this movie, but then again
    it is not the kind of movie that needs music to carry it off. Songs and
    background scores are soothing to the ears with great lyrics. For lack
    of a better word, I’d only say the ending is ‘mind-blowing’. It leaves
    you wanting for more.

    beautifully written and directed

    Aynabaji is a beautifully written and directed movie. Every scene had
    its significance. I have always avoided Bangla movie because of its
    lame dialogues and silly drama. But the makers of Aynabaji took
    Bangladeshi movie industry to a different level. Chanchal has played 6
    characters. Each was played speechlessly by the versatile actor.
    Romantics scenes between Chanchal and Masuma added a flavor to the
    movie which never stretched to monotony. An important message is also
    provided in the movie. That is the corruption scenario of Bangladesh
    Police and the politicians. Bribery can save any criminals from
    punishment (jail).Aynabaji can be described in one word and that is
    ”MAGNIFICO”.

    Great Movie Ever

    Great movie ever and that’s wonderful Bangladeshi movie. I also think
    that, it’s better than Bollywood movies. Actually Chanchal Chowdhory
    acting great role. Nabila also acting great and she most important part
    of this movie. Most of Bangladeshi and Indian people like this movie.
    Ayna’s Anynabaji great and that’s most important political scene for
    Bangladesh. This movie has important part for Bangladesh’s social
    crimes and activities. I think this movie can be selected for Oscar and
    will be won Oscar. This Chanchal Chowdhory’s best movie and that’s
    better than Mon Pura movie. I like Chanchal Chowdhory’s amazing acting.
    Thanks Chanchal for giving this amazing movie for me.

    ”Aynabaji” is shown by me at shyamoli cinema hall. It was a wonderful
    moment. I can’t express my feeling about that moment in words. This is
    an amazing bangla movie I have ever seen. The hero of this movie named
    ”Chanchal Chowdhury”. He is a very very very intelligent actor. This
    movie also have some romantic scene. I think this move is acceptable
    for all ages people. So please go to your nearest theater and enjoy
    this.Please do not take any kind of images from the theater of this
    movie. and don’t wait for coming on youtube. please viwe ”aynabaji” at
    theater.Please support our film industry. and specially thanks goes to
    the whole team who created this ” aynabaji”

    May be the first Bangladeshi movie which will force you to pay full attention.

    The story line is good. But to make everything clear it should take
    more time to show details. Actors are great. I will give full credit to
    the story writer for not making it a super fantasy movie in the end.
    Everyone was expecting a bit twist when it was ended like a
    simple(partially) realistic one. Actually it’s was like a thriller
    novel rather than a total movie.

    Main problem is time limit. Only 3 hours is not enough. Even though the
    main character has got most of the screen time, other actors were
    playing their role very effectively. Clean and easy to understand. Good
    work and keep it up.

    acting from all of the artist. I loved the way how they captured Dhaka
    city in the very beginning of this movie. Till the last minute I
    enjoyed. Maybe I will watch it again 😀

    The vibe of Aynabaji.A new feather flock in Bengali film success,this does not stop the good old days🙂

    Morning shows the day this is not always true, but it seems a little
    more truth for this movie trailer.In this case that the amount of Hype
    was made in the expectation that the people that it was no more after
    watching this movie has crossed the expectation that than the movie and
    now visitors like her, instead proves response!The main character in
    the movie Sharafat Karim Ayna(Mirror) another human character holding a
    mirror to help sustain people’s words before the case even though he
    does not help them see that it will help, then.A total of six agile
    character played by actor. many people do not like him,thinks typo but
    if anyone has seen this movie.then he is bound to be definitely a fan,
    though not his fan,mouth that is to say WOW!Swear word will come out of
    this one character, and one character from converting another,awesome
    make-up in one word,that he has charisma and it was great!Amitabh
    discount anything that has given proof of this make-up man Muhammad Ali
    brought to Kolkata! Amitabh Reza does not compromise anything for this
    movie proved efficient for the small character actors in Hollywood, the
    actress has been cast but we do not have small roles in movies for the
    big star of the Amitabh picked.Reza has become popular enough for this
    movie,it indicates that the Applause sound was a fantastic!!! not !!!
    The rain scene to confuse what I say in one word awesome ❤ ❤ The
    performance portion of this movie, except I do not like … one
    journalist used old model camera,this kind of use that you expect?
    antiquated camera beard and restless at the end of the original would
    have been better if.The title of the music is beautiful and lovely ..
    .. Why do the names of one Habib,Arnob,Fuad,Chirkut.Song ”the sin save”
    has very important meaning and the song I greatly greatly like dessert
    after a big meal seed is last song by Fuad 😁 You all seem like all you
    goof taste.So if we all gather themselves😌 Bengali movie I’ve ever seen
    awesome !!! Best finishing, the this movie is this kind of movie that
    people will not be able to leave the seat until the end! Another
    powerful aspect of this movie is the dialogue,all great dialogue
    throughout the whole movie!It became part of our lives, This is some of
    the dialogue is a political plot did not understand it ? Moreover, the
    politics of the people,one of the biggest acting,I am outside, you can
    be inside?It is fun, the morning after the change of character.Shifting
    one character to another when the wind shifts. Around change, time
    stops, when the truth is a lie. For all the true. Only one mirror?I do
    not think we’ve been constantly played a variety of in order to satisfy
    the interests of our greatest actors, and politicians,they have
    everything influential political voice, we want to get the bank to
    conspire laws! It did not understand ???? There is no item song, dance,
    swinging hip dance,action,sexual scene so why people like piper-boy
    followed by the flute man of Hamylon gone to watch Aynabaji? If you
    want to know the answer you have to watch Aynabaji

    The best Bengali movie ever

    Ayna is an actor and the prison is his stage. He slips into the
    characters of the powerful convicted, in exchange of money and take
    their place in prison. This strange profession is borne out of a
    society that doesn’t give him a chance to follow his passion of acting,
    but forces him to act in the real life. Falling in love with the girl
    next door changes his life equation and he decides to end this career
    with one last performance. But this one takes him too deep in the
    rabbit hole. While on his job in prison the convict is sentenced to
    hanging and so is Ayna who was pretending to be the convict. Although
    the film has a sad ending, the film ends with Ayna continuing to show
    his brilliant acting skills in the jail.

    A fantastic movie to watch!

    I consider this movie as one of the most fantastic and joyful movie to
    watch.Undoubtedly, one of the most brilliant Bangladeshi movie I have
    ever seen. Story, cast, screenplay all are great. It touch a social
    problem that few movie directors and producers took the risk of doing
    like the institutionalized thing. All of the stories developed in this
    movie even if they are all related of the main character, every own
    little story is very interesting and full of emotions. This movie
    contains good drama, thriller, a different comedy insight. Simply a
    wonderful piece of work.

    I can’t speak for everybody, but this is a film that I can watch over
    and over again, and love it more each time I watch it. And, while I
    simply talked about the ending this entire review, that is not all that
    makes this film incredible. However, I will not waste any more of your
    time talking about how wonderful this film is. And please do not waste
    any of your own time. Find a way to see this movie as ASAP. It will be
    time well spent, and you will certainly see it multiple more times.

    Aynabaji, one of the best creation of Bangladeshi movie industry

    Aynabaji is a movie directed by Amitabh Reza Chowdhury who is one of
    the most brilliant director in Bangladesh and casts by Chanchal
    Chowdhury, Masuma Rahman Nabila, Partho Barua etc.

    The plot of the movie is unique and very different from the typical
    Bangladeshi movie . Ayna ,the leading character of the movie does a
    weird job for living .He takes people’s place in prison for money .In
    one case , he faced a very big trouble .What is the trouble and how
    Ayna dealt with it, that part unfolds in the climax.

    What amazed me most is the cinematography. Specially the Ariel shots
    are memorizing . The background music is choice was too good . There is
    almost no loo break in the movie . All credit goes to the Aynabaji team
    for making such a good film in a minimal budget.

    All the actors did play their roles exceptionally good in the
    film.Specially Chanchal Chowdhury(Ayna) . His transformation from one
    role to another is just too good in the movie .

    In a word , ” Aynabaji ” is a very unique thriller movie in the history
    of Bangladeshi movie industry . A must watch film for those who loves
    thriller and suspense stories.

    Story line is not believable

    Likes: Kudos to Director to make a film with such story line and also
    the main actor Chanchal.

    Dislikes: I really don’t like the story line, its not believable at
    all. there are also many faults on the movie; like you can’t be in the
    central jail month after month with fake hair and beard. And you can’t
    duplicate a famous renowned politician.

    Summary: though i don’t like the story line but i feel like i miss
    something in that movie that lead me to watch it again with more
    attention, and that’s the main reason i love this movie. it makes you
    feel like you miss something, it lead you think and confused too. kudos
    to Amitabh Reza again.

    This is a story of a simpleton with a parallel life of a professional impostor who serves jail-terms in proxy of rich & influential criminals in exchange of money.

    Excellence of work has been reflected there!

    The movie is one piece of excellent film making in Bangladesh film
    industry till date. The hard work of the Director totally reflected
    including the entire teams work. Cinematography of the movie shows the
    development of the creative minds and technology use.

    The actors played their very well. Chanchal Chowdhury did an
    outstanding performance. He proved his excellence. He is an terrific
    actor which know from other films. But he crossed his own excellence
    here.

    The story line of the movie is very exceptional. Well executed and I
    couldn’t think of any other end it could have been. Every bit of the
    movie had it’s purpose. Well written story and the dialogues too. Music
    director also did very good. All the songs and background music were
    perfectly plotted. Bangla music essence was there.

    Overall, this movie is a very good watch! Every artist behind the movie
    and on screen did amazing which the movie reflects. Hats off to the
    team work!

    An entertaining movie that’s not what it’s hyped up to be

    If the hype around social media wasn’t enough to get someone’s
    attention to this movie, the buzz and response outside surely were.
    Aynabaji stormed through cinema halls at a time when Bengali movie
    industry was awaiting its impending doom and eventual loss of identity
    by morphing into just another counterfeit of more profitable Indian
    movie industries. Evidently, this was enough to make the Bangladeshi
    moviegoers rediscover their craving for Bengali cinema. But does it
    make Aynabaji the movie that it is fabled to be? My answer may not
    satisfy some.

    As I am reviewing it anyway, let me get started with the positives
    first. Aynabaji is unique. There is nothing quite like it in Bengali
    cinema. And the titular character Ayna is certainly one of the most
    complex and fascinating characters in Bengali fiction. He can be seen
    as a meta-commentary to actors in a whole. The struggles that come with
    their professions and how this affect their sense of personal identity.
    The director did a tremendous job at fleshing him out. While not a
    comedy, it’s dry humor was witty and fitting but pretty shallow as
    well. The soundtrack and background sounds were nicely placed in many
    of the scenes but grossly exaggerated in others. While it tried to
    break out of the shell of a typical Bengali movie, it failed. Attention
    to detail in set design, cinematography and the portrayal of Dhaka was
    accurately done. Another thing also worth mentioning is the way some
    recurring characters aren’t just cardboard cutouts but characters
    somewhat resembling real human beings even if the primary focus was
    always on the titular character.

    Sadly, Aynabaji isn’t the perfect movie that many speak of. And many of
    its strong aspects are overshadowed by faults. The biggest issue of
    Aynabaji is that it tries to be too many things at once. A drama, a
    character study, a thriller, a satire, a love story, a psychological
    thriller, a slapstick comedy and in the end, it doesn’t know what it
    is. The plot was needlessly convoluted and many plot elements were
    brought up and then thrown out without a warning or handled without
    necessary care. And some of the major events were made possible by plot
    conveniences which were undoubtedly immersion-breaking, The director
    bet his dollar on a willing suspension of disbelief too often and it
    doesn’t pay off.

    The acting is certainly sub-par. The actors are either overacting or
    underacting. The sound editing doesn’t do it any good either. And the
    cartoonish and grossly stereotypical representation of some side
    characters makes them increasingly difficult to take
    seriously(Especially the major and minor antagonists). In fact, keeping
    a straight face and not cringing becomes rather challenging as the
    movie progresses.

    The writing is filled to the brim with amateurish movie tropes. It
    doesn’t try to think outside the box. As a result, the movie becomes
    predictable to anyone with minimal movie viewing experience. And the
    dialogue, oh the dialogue! It is undoubtedly the worst part of this
    movie. If I had a penny for every time the characters tried and
    miserably failed to say something profound, I’d have my ticket back.
    Bad dialogues don’t make good chemistry either. As a result, character
    chemistry was forced. Most noteworthy being the chemistry between two
    main characters. Last, but not least, the movie’s urge for
    crowd-pleasing ended the movie on a not so high note. And the ending
    certainly felt weaker than what I predicted.

    So, is it worth watching? It is if you are a Bengali. Because its
    success will lead to more filmmakers taking risks or being ambitious
    and the condition of this decaying film industry may improve. If you
    are a foreigner swayed by the high ratings on its IMDb page, don’t
    watch it.

    Overall Aynabaji is a breath of fresh air in Bengali movie scene but
    only as a source of pure entertainment and nothing beyond. But even a
    popcorn flick as this comes with a fair share of positives to make one
    hopeful about the future of Bengali movies. Just don’t expect it
    winning awards anytime soon and don’t hype it to be something it’s not.

    P.S. Sorry for any grammatical errors.l

    A brilliant story with sublime acting

    Aynabaji is a phenomenal movie and with a great plot and tremendous
    acting from all of its cast. Chanchal Chowdhury is perfect for the main
    role Ayna with his unbelievable and prolific acting. This title is
    easily the best film of Bangladesh till date and I would not be
    surprised if they sneak in to the Oscars being nominated in ‘The best
    foreign film’ category. Hopefully this will be the ground breaker in
    the film industry of Bangladesh and we will be able to get many more
    movies like this. The story has got great grit about it and the sheer
    brilliance in the cinematography just keeps you on the hook. Suggest
    you all to go watch it in case you have not yet, it is worth the time.

    It’s excellent !!!

    There are few movies in Bangladesh that are superhit. Aynabaji is one
    of them. The great drama actor Chanchal was in the movie. He played the
    vital role. His acting is always the best. The story is about Ayna, a
    struggling actor who gets to live his profession in real life after
    failing in his career. Gifted with the natural talent of acting, he is
    a man with a versatile character and can morph into anybody he wants.
    It is also a story about the dark side of metro city Dhaka.Though it
    was the firstmovie of Nabila, co-actress but she also did well. There
    are very fewmovies in BD that are thriller. It has a beautiful story.
    The movie has received a good response from audience. We do love this
    movie. It will be the revolution of our film industry.

    some ordinary mistakes for an extra ordinary movies .

    As like everyone I love this movie . But there are some mistakes which
    are not appropriate for this kinda movie . The story is so good even
    the direction is . But there are some extra scene through the whole
    movie . Till now I can’t understand , why there was a scene with
    reporter’s wife and child ? And from where the a set of hair comes to
    Aynas head at noon but there were trimmed short hair at morning . That
    why I am giving this movie 7 . And people love this movie a lot but
    most of them can’t say there is any type of hallucination . Is it
    really a success if ordinance can’t catch the twist ? So, i want to say
    , everyone should think after watching a movie . We are too busy to
    watch a movie properly because we have to post a photo or a status .
