As a leader of the local community, Chairman Amin bans every kind of image in his water-locked village in rural Bangladesh. He even goes on to claim that imagination is also sinful since it gives one the license to infiltrate into any prohibited territory. But change is a desperate wind that is difficult to resist by shutting the window. The tension between this traditional window and modern wind grows to such an extent that it starts to leave a ripple effect on the lives of a group of typically colorful, eccentric, and emotional people living in that village. But at the very end of the film, Television, which he hated so much, comes to the rescue and helps Chairman Amin reach a transcendental state where he and his God are unified. A new twist to the story makes him embrace IMAGE and IMAGINATION Written by Mehedhi Al Nahiyan

Vizontele (2001)
13 November 2013 | by (London, England.) – See all my reviews

This movie is a copy of the famous 2001 Turkish film Vizontele. Exactly the same concept in a darker toned Bangladeshi setting. I hope Farooqi gave credit to the Turkish film and the writer/director/actor Yilmaz Erdoğan. People are giving this movie credit for its originality, which is a lie. The making is decent, but nothing original about it. Very disappointed with Mr. Farooqi. Expected originality and creativity from him like his earlier work, which were fresh ideas. Hoping for actual new ideas from him in the future. Other than that, good performances from the cast, especially Mrs. Farooqi. Its always great to watch her perform, this movie being no exception. Watch it for the actors, just don't go thinking its an original idea from a brilliant mind.
