Ruddhaswas Rajasthan – An Unexpected Journey Into Comedy and Mystery
The Eken: Ruddhaswas Rajasthan was released to great fanfare on Friday, April 14th 2023 in Bengali cinematic form. This film forms part two of The Eken, which has garnered significant popularity throughout Bengal. Here is our movie review including all its strengths and shortcomings.
The Eken Ruddhaswas : The Plot
Eken Babu discovers a missing idol in London and sets out on an investigation, following clues and using observation skills he learns more difficult tasks than expected. The trailer of The Eken: Ruddhaswas Rajasthan shows Eken Babu’s epic journey as he sets out on this quest to solve its mystery.
Eken: Ruddhaswas Rajasthan is an intriguing blend of comedy and mystery that thrives largely thanks to its Bengali comedy element and Anirban Chakrabarti’s exceptional performance as the lead. However, its first half lacked thrill as its punchlines were already revealed in its trailer; script was predictable yet enjoyable thanks to Eken, Promotho, and Bapi who add some personality and heartiness.
The second half of the film truly shines, with Anirban’s comic relief and humorous antics winning over audiences across India. Beautiful drone shots capture Rajasthan’s breath-taking desert landscapes while camel riding scenes bring them all home.
