Nuhash Humayun thinks with Iflix, he can connect more effectively with young audiences Facebook

In this romantic comedy, Pritom plays the young man of limited means who has only 700 taka left at the end of the month. But he has a date with a girl (Sabila Nur) who is perfect in his eyes. But in his attempt to impress her, he misjudges who she really is

A hopelessly broke young man (Pritom Hassan) calls his uncle from the restroom of a restaurant where he came with a pretty girl he is trying to impress. He only has 700 taka in his pocket and desperatelyneeds money to pay the food bill. 

This is how the trailer of director Nuhash Humayun’s new short film “700 Taka” begins. The 20-minute short is set to be released today at 9pmon iflix.

The young film-maker told Dhaka Tribune’s Showtime: “After ‘Hotel Albatross.’ I wanted to go in a very different direction. I wanted to have fun with this one. It has lots of little characters that are fun.”

In this romantic comedy, Pritom plays the young man of limited means who has only 700 taka left at the end of the month. But he has a date with a girl (Sabila Nur) who is perfect in his eyes. But in his attempt to impress her, he misjudges who she really is. 

It is the first serious acting role for singer Pritom, who will also release a song for the film, “700 Takar Gaan.”

Nuhash said that his generation doesn’t really watch TV dramas. All the dramas which come out, especially during the Eid, are hyped in the media, but not a lot of people watch those. With Iflix, the director hopes to connect more effectively with young audiences, as the platform isonline and one can watch it at his/her own pace.

“Short films never get enough budgets like commercials,” Nuhash said. “This film is a metaphor for anyone in Dhaka who is going through a financing challenge, but is pretending to be better off than what s/he really is.”
