Storyline

An autocratic bad tempered woman controls family members-her husband, two brothers and the servants which symbolizes the political dictatorship of Ayub Khan in then East Pakistan. Both stories run in parallel. Outside, the people of East Pakistan(now Bangladesh)rise in political protest, and inside, the family members raise their voices against the tyrannical woman. The two brothers get married and the situation gets more complicated when there are conspiracies for the control of the family between the sister-in-laws by having the keys of the house.

Great!
22 June 2017 | by afiacptiSee all my reviews

Great movie with all the metaphor, unique in it's genre in bengali movie. I have watched it and enjoyed it. But there's one thing that is quite sad is that the screen quality is not that great. But, all in all it covers up the gap with the superior story. I would recommend anyone to watch this movie to understand the prospect of Bengal Language Movement and the reason behind International Mother Language Day. I bet you would enjoy it.
