The best Bangladeshi film I have seen in a while. It is a nihilistic tale of Dhaka city, through the eyes of an educated unemployed 30 year old - who loses everything in stock market crash, fraudulence & political instability in 2010s. Sudden violent outbursts & manipulative acts of all the characters in the film portrays a deep ingrained sickness within the culture of unfreedom, depression, unwellness & exploitation.
