This film surely has more to say than it shows. One will regret how much Tareque Masud was to give in future despite his untimely death.
I have respect for him and went to the premiere of Runway and found myself pleased. This film has many positives including good screenplay, excellent cinematography, thought provoking concepts and so on.
The life shown was a typical poor society living just beside an airport runway. The life vibrates with sounds of the flights everyday. But the battle of survival of the poor family goes on with a desperate and frustrated man, Ruhul.
Controversial thoughts were experimented by the director, like the formation of the radical Islamic group and their supporting political parties. It was surely a brave attempt in a Muslim country. What was really notable here, director played a neutral role and let people decide the right path.
The time frame was superb. Things happened recently in the country was the basic of the story. Like the booming garments industry, unemployment problems, terrorism, politics etc.
Finally I would like to recommend this film to all. Its worth watching.
