Cheeni, Bengali film is streaming online, watch on Hoichoi TV with English subtitles, release date 5th February
Cheeni is a heartwarming drama in the Bengali language, revolving around the sometimes tender, sometimes bitter mother-daughter relationship.
The film centres on the fractured relationship between a millennial daughter and her recently widowed mother. Cheeni (Madhumita) is a working girl with a mind of her own. She is headstrong and wilful, and stays alone in the city, away from her strict, domineering mother (Aparajita Adhya)
All hell breaks loose when her mother’s doctor calls Cheeni one day to tell her that her mother is behaving very eccentrically. She is drinking a lot, and behaving in a manner totally unlike her. An unwilling Cheeni moves back into her mother’s home to care for her.
As the mother and daughter work their way around their acrimonious relationship, forgotten secrets of the past tumble out and forbidden issues are raked into the open, eventually leading to healing and redemption.
