This Eid, veteran actor Shahiduzzaman Selim, starred in a telefilm titled Jealous. The film started off with two men, a poet and a rhymester, campaigning to get elected as the chairman of their local library. But little did they know, their kids were in love and equally worried about their fathers losing the election. This made things harder for them in a way; given their families don’t like each other. To continue their relationship, they come up with a plan to involve another person, who can run and win the election instead. The person who was approached turns out to be a seasoned politician who has never won an election because of hilarious circumstances. And after seeing the possibilities of winning, the man is determined to run but his family members raise objections. Comic situations placed throughout the film lead to a solid piece of entertainment. Filled with sharp acting and smart gags, the 45 minutes long telefilm was an enjoyable treat. And even though it appears to be a light-hearted telefilm, it is actually a satire of political psychology. It caricatures how politicians can try to deceive their opponents and voters with false claims. The second act where the “star-crossed” lovers, execute their plan also shows how people can go to lengths to do things for their own good. This doesn’t mean the people are bad, it simply shows how people are so different; no one is bad, it’s just a matter of perspective. The climax was more or less predictable, but it was enjoyable because of its humour. And with the exception of the first five minutes, the story was very well paced. The plot and the performances are its stronger suits. Meanwhile, its camera work and editing deserves mild criticism. But overall, it was good. Currently, it is up on a verified YouTube channel of NTV Natok. You can watch it without the long advertisement breaks at your own leisure. Rating: 3.5/5
