when there are only few movies about the historical war in 1971, this kind of movie will confused everyone. The director should be ashamed for it. there are many historical event about 1971, how many of them are focused already? still we cry when we read the true story from freedom fighter. this kind of movie can be made after making 1000 positive movie about our war. then people can accept it as a story. this is a propaganda and a chance to commit their act by a movie. the director tell that she is a daughter of a freedom fighter, then what about her grandfather? people of Bnagladesh know about them very well. rather it is unexpected to get a movie like this in this time when the government is for the freedom fighter. shame on you Ms director and also to your father.
