Entertainment Desk :

Bangladeshi young filmmaker Razib Ahsan's debut feature film based on the 1971 liberation war, "Namhin Gotrohin," started its production phase on January 6 in Old Dhaka. The film is based on a short story of the same title written by eminent author Hasan Azizul Huq. The storyline depicts a story of how a common man saw the war one night during 1971.
The project primarily received funding for a short film from the Bangladesh government last year. Razib, the film's director and producer later on decided to release the film in both a short and a feature length version. He is currently shooting both versions at once. The director shared his experience with Dhaka Tribune's Showtime.
Razib said: "My film, based on one of the favorite stories of one of my favourite authors, will portray the devastated condition of the civilians during our liberation war from a single person's experiences while he returns home through the city one night. The film has almost no dialogues as it will be completely a visual and sound design based story, which is a new form in Bangladeshi filmmaking in my opinion."
He also added: "After completing the film by June, I will submit it to the censor board for theatrical distribution in Bangladesh. I'm planning to release it in December 2018 keeping the month of victory in mind. I also plan to go for alternative distribution in different regions of the country as I have gained that experience while working with Tareque Masud."
Razib's previous short film "Puppet" is based on the play "The Dumb Waiter," written by renowned British playwright Harold Pinter. The film premiered at the 22nd Kolkata International Film Festival and was also officially screened at more than 15 international film festivals. Furthermore, it was recently selected for the Toronto International Independent Film Festival last year.
