Emotional, touchy and not just a war movie
18 December 2011 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

The story is one of the modern day classics in Bengali literature. Its not easy to cinematise such a well known story where the audience expects for a classic. I wont say it was a classic but definitely the movie was well directed. All the actors gave an accomplished performance. The main character "Rashed" was played exceptionally well. At times he looked a bit expressionless and emotionless but that goes well with the character. A very matured performance was needed from him and he delivered that. "Ebu" was the most important character. That young fella was well aware of his importance and didn't let anyone down. The Director deserves an applause because he tried to keep the movie in line with the story(though there was a small hiccup at the end, in the book Ebu asked ashraf/fojlu about rashed and one of them informed that rashed had died. This was particularly special to me because I remember I cried when I read that part and the director escaped the very thing :p) But overall it was a good experience at least the story was not ruined for the movie which has been the case for many of my favourite books (Including Count of Monte Cristo, Anna Karenina, The great Gatsby, Ivanhoe, Kalbela, Tenida, Kakababu)If you are a Bangladeshi then it is a must see, if you are not I'd say you wont regret after watching, this movie is well worth of your time!
