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

"Acceptance of something new in the system is good, but completely denying the thing just on its predictable negative impacts is the foolish act, it is depended upon us, how we use it so it results'', everything has its limitations but with proper usage it could turn to be the boon and the same thing may cause the negative impact if it crosses its limitation.
2012's Bangladesh movie ''Television'' has something interesting story to know about, it's the story that revolves around the old village chairman's orthodox traditional restrictions and changing modern mind of that community youngsters, that old village chairman has some negative stereotypes regarding the changing trends and the advent of technology which may mislead its community members and about posing threat to their tradition, in order to avoid its impact he imposes various rules and bans the use of various modern gadgets like mobile and television, but the question is until what extent such practices prevails to be in action? At the end of the movie the same old village chairman who unfortunately misses the chance of visiting the pilgrim place witnesses the same pilgrim place in the television and reaches the state of euphoria and finally realising that every thing in this world has its own pros and cons, but its consequence is depended on how we use them.
The entire casting is so good that each and every artist had provided full justice to their respective roles, the story has been neatly narrated and no doubt it reaches the mind of people and evoke their emotions, very fine and incredible work done by the young Bangladesh film maker Mostofa Sarwar Farooki.
