1. Crushing on the para hottie
The latest Raj Chakraborty superhit movie, Parineeta, is now on ZEE5. Starring Subhashree Ganguly, Ritwick Chakraborty and Gaurav Chakrabarty, this latest Bengali movie is a gripping tale of love and revenge. But underneath the storyline, there are also several things in this Bengali romantic film that those who have grown up in Bengal will totally relate to. Scroll down to find out.
Growing up, we have all had that one girlfriend/boyfriend who stays in the same para. Crushing on the neighbourhood hottie, waiting out for them in the nooks and corners, marking out the time when they left home or got back home and going to the terrace or balcony at those times is something we have all done. In Parineeta too, Subhashree has a huge crush on Babaida, her next-door-neighbour and she tries every trick in the book to cancel all the wedding proposals his mother gets for him.

2. Trying out how to smoke
And almost getting caught in the act. Teenage is all about rebellion. And while we do not endorse smoking, pretty much all teenagers have tried smoking as the first act of defiance or simply to seem cool in front of friends. In Parineeta, we see Mehul aka Subhashree and her friends trying out how to smoke, and almost getting caught by her brother.
3. Taking tuitions from the studious dada
Every neighbourhood has their share of the studious dada or didi who gives tuitions for pocket money. And before we move on to take tuitions from schoolteachers, that’s where our parents send us first, not far away from their eyes, to improve our grades in school. For Mehul, it is the brilliant student Babaida who makes her study hard so that she passes her Higher Secondary exams with flying colours.
4. The insufferable sibling
If you have grown up with a sibling, you will totally identify with this one. Growing up is impossible without having regular fights and spats with your sibling – no matter how close you are to each other. Whether it is snitching to parents or being a partner-in-crime, they are all a part of growing up with a sibling, like Mehul and her brother.
5. The school gang
Whether it is a mixed group, or an only boys or only girls group, one cannot think of school days without a school gang. From crushes to punishments and from heartbreaks to tiffins, we have shared them all with our school gang.
