Storyline

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

Mostofa Sarwar Farooki's best film so far...
8 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'd waited well over a year to see this much hyped film and Mostofa Sarwar Farooki yet again doesn't disappoint; in my opinion this is probably his best work and a much more polished effort than 'Third Person Singular Number'. The fact the narrative is set in a village in Bangladesh is irrelevant because the story of its people is a universal one and the message transcends cultures. This is the story of how close mindedness and the winds of change clash in a rapidly changing world. Bangladesh's official submission to 2014's Oscars, in what was a very strong 12 months for world cinema, didn't make the final list of nominees but it doesn't really matter because this is an accomplished film that has been praised both in its home country and at the select film festivals its played at. With the exception of 'Monpura', this is the best piece of cinema to come out of Dhaka's growing film industry in the last 10 years. If I could bet on one filmmaker from Bangladesh really cracking the international film festival circuit in a big way in the future, my money's definitely on Farooki. A recommended film.
