Snehmoy (Rahul Bose) and Miyage (Chigusa Takaku) are pen friends who exchange wedding vows through letters. Fifteen years pass but they never meet. Yet the bond of marriage is strong between them. This unusual relationship comes under a cloud when a young widow, Sandhya (Raima Sen), comes to stay with Snehmoy along with her eight-year-old son Poltu. Snehmoy and the little boy bond and the arithmetic teacher discovers the joy of palpable bonds and fatherhood. There develops an inexplicable thread of understanding with Sandhya too. But Snehmoy remained loyal to his unseen Japanese wife. When Miyage was ill from cancer, he took a long leave from his school and tried his best to find a cure for the illness. Meanwhile, malaria took a toll on him and he died. Coming of Miyage in a white sari to Sunderbans after his departure was really touching.

"Eye of the Beast" at least takes itself seriously for the most part, but that doesn't necessarily make it any better than the rest. There's a lot more talk that we're used to, and most of the squid "action" is reserved for the clumsily filmed finale in which the hopelessly phony CGI creature is finally put to rest. The one thing that is nice about the conclusion is that we finally get to see the eye of the best promised by the title. Until that point, we're stuck with imagining what the rest of it looks like because all we get to see are its tentacles.For someone who's never been much of an actor (and this film is not likely to change that all that much), James Van Der Beek is decent here. He has a nice scene in a bar with co-star Alexandra Castilo that works, so much so it feels like it belongs in a completely different movie. The rest of this is mostly dull, silly stuff that's too boring to be any fun and not well made enough to be taken seriously. There's also a ridiculous backstory involving a feud between the Indian and native fishermen that comes out of nowhere and seems to have nothing to do with anything. It just pads out the running time, and if there's one thing that "Eye of the Beast" doesn't need to be, it's longer. Even as brainless entertainment, this dud falls miserably short.

And apparently, breaking up with someone via text is now used. Yay for technology. High school is not so fun.

The killings begin to start as soon as he gets a rejection letter from a certified shrink where he only goes after the people who have the same name as him which is Arthur Taylor. And leaves his mark by first trying to make it seem like they killed themselves and then planting a phonebook page on top of them with some words scribbled on it. Sam Dietz (Leo Rossi)is the homicide cop assigned to the case who was transferred from station to a new station where police don't work with each other as a result of a lack certified law enforcement officers. And he partners himself up with Homicide cop Bill Malloy (Robert Loggia) who often disputes with Dietz's assumptions and findings. This is the perfect example where much of the police protocols are incompetent, and that the victims don't appear to have any other close relatives or friends. The cops are too thick since their must already been cuckoo evidence around that the Judd Nelson character is not all there as well as his name- never mind the tape recorder. This is incompetent police work at it's best. the other thing I had a problem with is that although Nelson's performance is exceptional, I can't get over the fact that the so-called serial killer would know the victim's place of residence more than the people who live there in such a short time. 1 star out of 4

Nice film all in all. This movie's finnish title is 'Mies San Fernandosta' - the man from San Fernando.
