Meherjaan (2011)

1:08 | Trailer
A film about loving the other. This film critiques certain pitfalls of nationalism that create conditions to justify war, killing and violence. 'Meherjaan' attempts to offer an aesthetic solution to war and violence.

really bad
1 June 2012 | by anika-sharinSee all my reviews

It is a totally bad movie based upon all the lies. Do not watch this movie. In this movie the director did not actually explain the true scenario of our independence war. That was not only a simple riot that was a 9months long war to achieve our independence from brutal Pakistani army. Pakistani army raped 3million women from age of 6 to 65 during the war and killer more than 10 million people. There is no mention about this. The director tried to give just her own opinion which is all based on lies. Really feeling ashamed to say she is a Bangladeshi, i wish we don't have this type of person in our country. So people do not waste your time watching this.
