A nice finishing!
18 November 2012 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Humayun Ahmed is my favourite writer. He is a brilliant character. He enriched our bangla litareture with his brilliant works. He always realize a readers feelings and describe it simply. As a film director he is also concern about viewers feelings. I was eagerly waited for this movie. Ghetu Putro Komola is his last film. An outstanding movie(as a point of my view). The song of this movie is excellent. If you totally understand this movie i am sure you can't be stopped your tears. A historical cultural movie about dark side of pleasure or entertainment. Now it is going for Oscar. We never forget you Humayun. You always live in your work with us. You('r book) always sleep with us beside our pillow. As a my point of view 10 of 10.
