A film about loving the other. This film critiques certain pitfalls of nationalism that create conditions to justify war, killing and violence. 'Meherjaan' attempts to offer an aesthetic solution to war and violence.
During the war in 1971, Meher falls in love with a soldier from the enemy side. When her love is discovered, she is shamed and silenced by her family and society. Today 38 years after the war, Meher has a visitor she cannot turn down. Sarah-a 'war-child,' Meher's cousin Neela's daughter, who was given away for adoption has come back to piece together her past. Together, these two women must re-tell history through their stories in order to cut through the stigmas and walk into light. Written by
Absolute Rubbish; this flick deserves to be in the sewers...
One of the worst movies in the history of Bangladesh. The movie spreads a blatant LIE of unfathomable magnitude. The director, according to various reports is an ISI-funded activist with the political agenda of confusing a wider new-generation audience. Absolute distortion of historical facts have been depicted, and a heinous effort of misleading the perception of unaware audience is apparent. People from all spheres with slightest knowledge regarding the Liberation War of Bangladesh have condemned this blunder of a movie. Thousands have voiced their frustrations regarding the movie content and how it might be viewed as utterly shameless 'Goebbelsian Propaganda'.
My advice: "Do not even think of wasting time watching this utter rubbish. And if you really do, please do not conceive the LIES the director systematically portrayed"
