Storyline

Hossain is a Bengali Muslim with an idealistic vision: he wants to establish a little utopia on an island in the Padma delta. He doesn't care if the people who populate it are Hindu or Muslim. It is 1947, just before the partition of India, and the Hindu fisherman Kuber briefly accepts an offer by Hossain to ferry some of the community's cargo from the island. He would be fishing, except that all the fish he usually catches have been driven away by a big storm. In the process of getting the cargo, he gets to see what the colony is like and, even though he is fully aware of the gripes of a former colony member and the limitations of it, comes to share some of the Utopia vision. When he returns to his home and a variety of unfortunate events make it in his best interest to leave, he knows just where to go. Written by Swarup Basak

Good news by the River
6 November 2011 | by irtondoSee all my reviews

Movie shooting on the edge of the Padma River, where a community people live face to face with (or against) the nature and the weather. Love, family, religion and work are, like in Europe, the reasons to go on and find the cause for smile and cry as life goes on. Very good work. TOP SCENE: at 1h,30min (more or less) a man is punished for his love relation with a married woman as the husband beats and calls her as a bitch in front of all the people. The man have to stay for two days chained to a tree, and we can see the woman, during the night, who goes to him bringing some water risking her life, as two men silently watch the moment.
