An important milestone in Bangladeshi film history!
Over the last few years there have been a lot of Bangladeshi indie thrillers coming out at varying levels of competency. This is far ahead of the pack - tightly packaged, confidently constructed. Some of the location shooting is put to great use to give this film a sense of scope. Cox's Bazar, in particular, has never looked better on film. It's no mean feat for a first time director; the film seems to have been born out of the sheer force of will. Good chemistry between the two leads helps sell it. I wanted to see more of Babu's sister's character. Although she and Babu had similar childhood experiences, she internalized it differently. Anyway, future Bangladeshi indie films with commercial aspirations, particularly thrillers and action films, should look to this as the standard to match or beat. Looking forward to future work by Amit Ashraf. Meanwhile, check this out!
