Storyline

'Shongram' is a romantic drama set during the 1971 Bangladesh liberation struggle. A daring reporter 'Sarah' (Asia Argento) interviews a Bangladeshi Londoner named 'Karim' (Anupam Kher) on his deathbed, who finally shares his account four decades later. A young Karim and Asha fall in love in the most testing of times. This becomes a complicated relationship, as Karim is a Muslim boy and Asha is a Hindu girl - that is just one aspect which provides a rollercoaster journey for the two protagonists. It stars legendary Hindi cinema artist Anupam Kher (Silver Linings Playbook, Bend it Like Beckham, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge), Hollywood and European star Asia Argento (Triple X - starring Vin Diesel, Marie Antoinette) alongside Bangladeshi artists Aman Reza and Dilruba Yasmeen Ruhee.

Fantastic film about the untold genocide
3 May 2019 | by imransaanySee all my reviews

Pleasantly surprised by the storytelling and production of Shongram and a very emotional film that I enjoyed watching. More people need to watch this and hear about the sufferings of the Bangladeshi people.
