The second movie directed by Humayun Ahmed. A village drama interweave around a charming girl, a folk singer, his love interest and the local aristocratic family's involvement, the movie provide with some beautiful songs.
As a leader of the local community, Chairman Amin bans every kind of image in his water-locked village in rural Bangladesh. He even goes on to claim that imagination is also sinful since it gives one the license to infiltrate into any prohibited territory. But change is a desperate wind that is difficult to resist by shutting the window. The tension between this traditional window and modern wind grows to such an extent that it starts to leave a ripple effect on the lives of a group of typically colorful, eccentric, and emotional people living in that village. But at the very end of the film, Television, which he hated so much, comes to the rescue and helps Chairman Amin reach a transcendental state where he and his God are unified. A new twist to the story makes him embrace IMAGE and IMAGINATIONWritten by

This movie is a remake of the famous 2001 Turkish film Vizontele. Exactly the same concept in a darker toned Bangladeshi setting. I hope Mr. Farooqi gave credit to the Turkish film and the writer/director/actor Yilmaz Erdoğan.
The making is decent in Bangladeshi background setting. A bit disappointed for not being original. Hoping for original new ideas from Mr. Farooqi in the future.
Other than that, good performances from the cast, especially Tisha. Its always great to watch her perform, this movie being no exception. Recommend to watch to provoke thoughts.
