Absolute Rubbish; this flick deserves to be in the sewers...
25 February 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

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"
