Darur Kirti story: 

Satinath Chowdhury (Paran Bandyopadhyay), his wife Sandhya Chowdhury (Anashua Majumder) and his man Friday Rafik’s (Satyam Bhattacharya) mischievous plot bring all his sons and daughters back to Chowdhury Bari. Furthermore, they convince their children that there is a pile of gold coins stored somewhere in the house. As all the siblings—Minu (Shantilal Mukherjee), Himu (Chandreyee Ghosh), Niki (Durbar Sharma), and Bini (Avery Singha Roy)—start living together in pursuit of hidden treasure, their love, annoyance, hatred, and apathy spill out.  

Darur Kirti review: 

First things first, Dadur Kirti is a watchable drama. It goes too high on melodrama often, yet it lands comfortably on humour and brilliant performance by the ensemble cast. That, by no means, makes the series perfect. It is dotted with sloppy script and totally uncalled-for emotions. The drama is, in fact, loud and blazing. Even then, Dadur Kirti is engaging and often entertaining.


The show has unperturbed Bangaliana at its core, painted with traditionalism. It portrays a series of old-school and orthodox emotions. And yet, it is Bangaliana that will engage the viewers. The plot, however, is fanciful and predictable.   

The collective performance by this huge star cast does justice to the series. One of the problems that we often see in ensemble cast series (or movies) is that it ends up wasting talents. This, on the other hand, uses almost every actor and actress well. Each character tells a story and each actor walks their journey well. Chandreyee and Kanchan are mesmerising. Not only does their chemistry work, but they also individually perform well. Shantilal and Jayati’s chemistry (despite their tiff) falls short. However, all of them together are a riot that was pioneered by Paran Bandyopadhyay. 

Satyam is a pleasure to watch on screen. Rafik’s romance with Pritha (Srijla) becomes real for Satyam’s doe-eyed look. Srijla has her ups and downs but overall, she puts up a steady performance as a kindhearted brat of the Chowdhury family. Rwitobroto Mukherjee is poised and lovely as Saikat; however, his character is underexplored. So is Palash's (nicely played by Soham Moitra). All the characters will not be important. However, Saikat and Palash are.

In the show, humour lands well and it often comes out of situational comedy. High-octane emotion does not work that well. Meanwhile, the ghost and the darkness are predictable and cliched, yet they work well. The show runs a tad too long (around 30 minutes per episode on average). The music is charming but it goes overboard with the last song. It also has some outstanding shots, especially within the corridors of the palatial Chowdhury Bari. Cinematographer Madhura Palit deserves a bright mention for her work.   

Dadur Kirti verdict: 

Dadur Kirti is not a phenomenal work and yet it is highly watchable. It has a predictable plot and is dotted with loud sequences. However, fueled by Bangaliana, the show runs well. It is one of the Hoichoi’s fun shows.
