Beautiful and Bold portrayal of reality
26 December 2016 | by patil_umeshSee all my reviews

Very much heartfelt and moved after watching a film 'Under Construction' by debut filmmaker Rubaiyat Hossain. Loved creative use of Rabindranath Tagore's work. Plot structure reminded me Salesman by Asghar Farhadi. Both switch between play and film. Lives of men, women working in construction industry, garment industry in Bangladesh have turned so mechanical that nobody cares if anybody dies while building construction. Film centers around character Roya, theatre artist, aspiring for her identity as theatre director by setting her own Company. Film has many shades of events, emotions adorned with astounding music and shows current day picture of society.
