Twelve people are passengers on board.The boatmen are taking them to safety, far away from the fierce clutches of war. All the people on board are devastated by the horrors of war. As the story advances, different events unravel.
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

One of the best in Bangladesh's cinema history, this is a breakthrough moment!
The subject of the film is both a literal and a metaphorical one at the same time. I was lucky to see the very 1st show of 'TELEVISION'. Farooki Mostofa Sarwar and his team has taken Bengali cinema to a new level. He has dealt with a bold subject, seldom explored in world cinema and has hit it quite hard! This cinema deserves world-wide exposure. Mark the day fellow film-lovers, this is a proud moment. Watch it and spread the word. 'Television' is the only movie in the history of Bangladesh that just had a houseful first day first show. A must see for locals, and for foreigners if you want to taste a Bengali film- this could be your appetizer and main dish!
