Plot[edit]

Riju (Dibyendu Mukherjee) is a doctor who was severely harmed when he got hit by a car. The car belonged to Saheli (Rimjhim Gupta), who is also a doctor. Saheli then tried to nurse Riju so that he came back to his health. She kept Riju at her residence for a period and as days passed, they fell in love. When Riju returned home, he discovered that his mother (Anuradha Ray) had died. He then went to Mathurapur when a doctor called him from there to inform him that a lot of villagers were ill due to consumption of spurious liquor. On the other hand, one day, Saheli came to know that she had cancer and she went to the "Painless Life Centre" and stayed there. Riju tried to find out the whereabouts of Saheli one day since they had not been in touch for a very long time. He landed up at the Centre one day and took Saheli back home as he wanted her to be by his side during her last days. She died after a few days.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Professional reviews
Review scores
Source Rating
Gomolo 2/5 stars

Holud Pakhir Dana received mostly negative remarks from reviewers. Gomolo users rated it 2 out of 5 stars. Aditya Chakrabarty of Gomolo said, "Films made by Kanoj Das have had much stronger lines and social messages in the past, but this film is an exception. This is one soppy tearjerker and neither the story nor the performances are strong to hold your attention."[4]

Controversy[edit]

"I haven't heard the Cactus song. The film is based on a story by Bidu Das. Every colour has a different emotional connect and yellow is no different. It's also my heroine's favourite colour in the film."

Director Kanoj Das about the controversy on the title [5]

Members of the Bengali band Cactus claimed that the title Holud Pakhir Dana was inspired from their popular number "Holud Pakhi" and complained that the film gave no credits to the band.

Band member Sidhu said, "It's undoubtedly inspired from our track. Tomorrow, someone might come up with a title like Bhebe Dekhechho Ki and not give credit to "Mohiner Ghoraguli". We are not asking for royalty, but credit where it's due. In between, a film called Sudhu Tumi Elena had released. Everyone knows we also have a song by that name."[5]

Drummer Baji said, ""Holud Pakhi" is not just popular amongst the younger generation. Even those who do not follow music, also know about the song."[5]
