The trailer of Anjan Dutt’s upcoming film Saheber Cutlet depicts the journey of a young aspiring chef, played by Arjun Chakraborty, who aspires to work in Paris. However, back home, his family comes in the way of his dream.
The trailer also features Anindita Bose, Ambarish Bhattacharya, Suprabhat Banerjee, Sritama Dey and Dutt himself but does not leave any hints as to their characters. However, with an unnecessarily drawn-out runtime of more than three minutes, the trailer ends up revealing far more about the story than it should.
The trailer begins with Chakraborty informing Bose about his plan to sell his ancestral home and travel to Paris with the money. However, his elderly family members and others object to his plan. He also gets attacked by goons, who tell him to leave the place immediately.
Undaunted, Chakraborty proposes the idea of opening a music café in the courtyard of his home. But later he reveals that turning his home into a restaurant is not truly his dream and he was trying to deceive those objecting to his proposal of selling the house.
However, it is evident that despite facing obstacles while setting up the café, he eventually manages to launch an impressive eatery which has free entertainment.
Meanwhile, he experiences more complications as the sister (Dey) of their caretaker (Banerjee) falls in love with him and her brother accuses Chakraborty of taking advantage of her.
The film promises to delineate Chakraborty’s emotional journey through food as he seems to rediscover his dream. However, the trailer leaves little room for the audience to guess the progression of the story.
Though the film has been referred to as a musical, the snippets of the songs don’t stand out for their musicality at all. Rather, they seem to be simplistic vehicles for expressing verbose ideas.
Saheber Cutlet is slated to release in theatres on 26 October.
Watch the trailer and let us know if you are keen on watching the film.
