Brilliant movie based on an ever-relevant humane story
4 January 2007 | by jafar_biplSee all my reviews

Antarjatra is a story of discovering the invisible bond of a British-Bangladeshi teenager to his country of origin (Bangladesh), who migrated to London with his mother in his early childhood. The central character of the film, Rifaqat visits Bangladesh for the first time to attend his father's funeral. He never met his father or the other members of his family. He was kept isolated from them by Sarah, his mother. He feels deprived from the love and affection of his father and grandfather for the first time in his life after meeting his grandfather and other members of his father's family. He senses a strong bond to them and to the country. He realizes that though he has no memory of Bangladesh, but this is his root and he will have to come back again and again to reconstruct his lost half. Great movie! Fine editing with good camera work and sound track – really a feast for the wits. Thanks to Tareque and Catherine for a beautifully made movie based on an ever-relevant humane story.
