Haven't found better what we expected from Tareq Masud.
13 June 2006 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a Bangladeshi mother (Sara Zaker) and her teenage son who live in UK. They come to their homeland after hearing the sad news of her ex-husband's death. She realized about her homeland and the relation between husband and wife. The son realized about his root, his soul, his motherland and relation between father and son, mother and son. But they could not back to their root. again they went back to UK where they are the 2nd class citizen.

The concept and idea of this movie was really awesome and deep. But the output is really disappointing. It's unexpected from Tareq Masud. The director of Matir Moina.
