 Acclaimed Indian director Anurag Kashyap has positively reviewed Bangladesh's first Cannes-selected feature "Rehana Maryam Noor." 

The second directorial venture by filmmaker Abdullah Mohammad Saad, RMN's storyline narrates the tale of the eponymous private medical college teacher who becomes the witness to an unexpected incident while leaving the college one day. 

Being awestruck with the incident, Noor, played by Azmeri Haque Badhon, starts to protest against the incident and the system, as the story moves forward. 

This is the first time any film from Bangladesh has been officially selected for the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Kashyap, who visited this year's Cannes amd attended RMN's screenings, said, "Rehana Mariyam Noor is one of the most powerful films to have come out from our part of the Indian subcontinent."

 The director rated the film four out of five stars in his Letterboxd review. 

"It feels so good watching the film. It completely shook me when I saw it. The way it was shot, the writing, the lighting design, the performances..It was quite extraordinary," he said.
