Poor direction
27 January 2011 | by tamal96See all my reviews

The story of the movie has been written to create a noise so that people will go to theatre to watch it. So by mistake if someone watch it, he/she will never watch the movie in his/her life time ever. Not only the movie fails to capture true sufferings of the women in Bangladesh's 1971 Liberation War, but also the poor direction mainly because of the inexperienced director made the film nothing but a 'garbage'. I have never rated a movie as awful but it was easy to do so with this one. Bad acting by the cast. Bad scenarios. Bad writing. Bad music score except only one song. The camera work is very slow. The plot has no sense at all. It is just confusion.
