'Bedroom' is director Mainak Bhaumik's second feature film.
Mainak is young, talented, impressionable. But his film leaves one with mixed feelings.
Mainak's earlier film, 'Aamra', had lifted heavily from 'Sidewalks of New York', and had to thus face the ire of critics. But it was a much better film compared to this one. Here, he plays safe and fails miserably.The impressive cast is failed by the limp direction.

The cast includes Aabir Chatterjee, Paoli Dam, Rudranil Ghosh, Ushasie Chakraborty, Biplab Dasgupta, Parno Mitra, Rahul, Pallabi, Anubrata, Vikram, and Tanushree.

A sense of deja vu permeates the stories involving all the three friends, and their romantic interests.

A smattering of topical, urbanite stuff, especially the contemporary sexual behaviour and trends, make us chuckle and smile. Sadly, it is all that the script succeeds in doing.

Some bits are unconvincing, and some are even incredulous.
The characters and situations never fully come to life.

Redeeming factor: the music scored by Rupam and Allan, their songs punctuate ably.
