The 70-minute docudrama ‘Hasina, A Daughter’s Tale’ has been released today (Friday) in the cinema halls across the country. It is based on the life of Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina, who is the eldest child of the Founding Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
This one hour and 10 minutes long independent historical docudrama has been directed by Rezaur Rahman Khan Piplu, and was jointly produced by the Centre for Research and Information and Applebox Films. The film was edited by Navnita Sen, and the cinematography of the movie was done by Sadik Ahmed.
Two premiers of the movie were held at Star Cineplex on Thursday while another was held at 11 am on Friday, reports UNB.
Initially, the movie will be screened at Star Cineplex, Blockbusters Cinemas and Modhumita Cinema Hall in Dhaka, and Silver Screen in Chattogram.
Director of the film Piplu Khan said in at a press conference in Dhaka, ‘This project wasn’t done to focus on the philosophy of Sheikh Hasina, there’s no burden or fat in this film, there’s nothing fictional here. This film is very light… it was done to focus on the incidents that took place in her life.’
Piplu said the movie focused on the life of Sheikh Hasina, not the Prime Minister, before and after August 15, 1975. ‘This is not my responsibility to glorify Sheikh Hasina, this is just a poetic humanistic story of Sheikh Hasina,’ he said.
Piplu said he was very much attracted by the simplicity of Sheikh Hasina and her younger sister Sheikh Rehana, the two survivors of the August 15 carnage.
