REVIEW: The film portrays the lives of people that represent the rural areas of Bangladesh. The director Himel Ashraf is known for making TV series and the movie definitely felt like a series. However, it is also possible to get the impression that the director has made a full-fledged commercial film. As far as the acting goes, it is definitely commendable. Aachal did a really good job portraying the character of a village girl. We can hope to see more of her on screen. Shahiduz-zaman Selim is also a phenomenal actor and does justice to his role. The music of the film is what catches attention most. The song “Tumi Amar”, sung by Nancy and Habib, is by far the best portion of the film’s music. Overall, the film is only worth a watch if you are a diehard Bangla film fan.
