An autocratic bad tempered woman controls family members-her husband, two brothers and the servants which symbolizes the political dictatorship of Ayub Khan in then East Pakistan. Both stories run in parallel. Outside, the people of East Pakistan(now Bangladesh)rise in political protest, and inside, the family members raise their voices against the tyrannical woman. The two brothers get married and the situation gets more complicated when there are conspiracies for the control of the family between the sister-in-laws by having the keys of the house. Written by
One of the best Bengali movies which stirred the whole nation during the most important and glorifying period of Bangladesh
"Jibon Theke Neya" is a timeless classic directed by one of most potential directors of Bangladesh Zahir Raihan. It tells story of Bangladesh under Pakistani dictatorial rules in the 70's metaphorically. Zahir Raihan took a bold step to portray the political movements in the then East Pakistan with this movie. Inspired by events surrounding the mass uprising of 1969, the movie was released prior to the war but still represents the true spirit of independence. In this movie the National Anthem of Bangladesh,"Amar Shonar Bangla Ami Tomay Bhalobashi" was played for the first time. The song was not only used as the National Anthem but also was able to generate the sense of Bengali nationalism among the masses. The lyrics of the song that was sung inside the jail captured in the movie too will make clear how motivational it was. It is summarized like this 'break that lock, break that iron gate of jail, fire on the jails and release all victims'. So it is not only a movie to be picture of the socio-political scenario but proved to be an effective catalyst in bringing about the people of East Pakistan under the same banner that demanded independence and autonomy.
