Mannan Hira emerges as feature filmmaker

Mannan Hira’s debut feature film Ekatturer Khudiram’s Muharat was held at BFDC on February 15. The shooting of the film will start from today. Following the path of many other filmmakers who chose to tell the story of the gruesome nine months that lead to the independence of the country, Mannan Hira took a step further by not only directing the movie, but also wrote the story and screenplay.

The music direction of the film is by Shujay Sham and it is produced by EPIC. The star cast includes Shocho, Fojlul Rahman Babu, Mamunur Rashid, Momena Chowdhury, Enamul Haq, Chobi, Firoj-al-Mamun and others.

The story is about how a group of youngsters gets motivated to join the Liberation War of 1971. In the small town of Shonamukhi, every year, the high school arranges an annual drama. Senior teacher Khokon Banarji decides to stage a drama titled Sahid Khudiram. A student named Alal from the eighth grade is chosen for the lead role. During this time, an Urdu speaking teacher opposes on staging the drama and asks them to showcase a play on Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Khokon refuses the script and goes on making arrangement for his original idea. When the war is in full swing, Biharis kill Khokon Banarji by the order of the Urdu speaking teacher. When Alal and his fellow classmates sees this injustice, they get motivated to join the war.

About his film, Mannan said: “It was my dream to make a film about the Liberation War. Many young actors will be on the lead role of the film. I hope the viewers will be able to relate to the story.”
