So, he becomes Prem to impress her. Gouranga also lands up at Gobinda’s house and discovers that he has got a sister called Rai (Sumita) who desires a boyfriend called Prem and so he too becomes Prem too impress her. Just when the confusion had started, there was a complete chaos. Banya lands up at Gobindo’s place and discovers he is not Prem. Her dominating mother (Sudipa Basu) lands up there with her helping hand, Kandarpo (Kanchan Mullick), who is the would-be-suitor for Banya. Just when he reveals facts like Gobindo being an adopted son, it turns out to be much more than that and finally it is seen that Gobindo and Gouranga are brothers and so Banya is their cousin and therefore Gobindo can’t be with Banya anymore.

Golemale Pirit Koro Na received mixed reviews from critics. However, the soundtrack of the film gained positive compliments. As a whole, the film was an average.

The critics of The Times of India said -

Mistaken identities, ideal love and a whole lot of confusion. Goley Maley Pirit Koro Na, Anindya Banerjee's comedy that took two years to see the light of the day, can be summed up in these three phrases. The film showed promising signs - it's myriad plots and sub-plots are held together by a wittily written narrative - sadly, that's not enough to create a blockbuster. There are stock characters - the forgetful governess, the bumbling cook, the country bumpkin uncle and love-struck women - but it's the protagonists who let us down. Jisshu Sengupta is the harassed son. A lot is expected of him - managing the family's fortune in the village of Chyangrapur (yes, that's what the village is called), looking for the ideal husband for his sister and even managing labour union problems. Unable to cope with these vicissitudes, Jisshu flees to the city every weekend to meet his fictitious friend, Prem. As if one set of problems wasn't enough back home, Jisshu goes around looking for more in the city. He becomes 'Prem' and befriends city lad Ritwik Chakraborty. Payel, the lead actress, is Ritwik's lovestruck sister, mad about Prem - the Salman Khan kind. But when she meets the Prem of the city, it's 'prem' (love) at first sight. Confused already? Here's more. As if to balance two sides of the equation, the director makes Ritwik's character let himself loose in Chyangrapur. There, quite predictable, he stumbles upon Jisshu's lovestruck sister who mistakes him for Prem, her Prem.

The first half of the film manages to set the premise for the second half by successfully transferring the characters where they ought to be in order for the plot to move ahead. The second half begins on a positive note. Comic relief in the form of Bratya Basu's Nebu Kaka - the country bumpkin uncle and Ritwik's interactions with Jisshu's family members keeps one engaged. The romantic numbers - Elo Re Elo Prem Elo Jibone and the very retro Ding Dong are melodious and hummable. The director is bang on target when it comes to shooting locations, flitting back and forth between Kolkata and North Bengal. The song, Elo Re Elo Prem Elo Jibone, shot in a picturesque Pattaya, the narrative and a particular dream sequence are the only high points of this blockbuster that never was.[4]
