Starring Shah Riaz and Jolly, and directed by Nader Chowdhury, the romantic drama Meyeti Ekhon Kothay Jabe has been released in theatres on Friday. Shah Riaz and Falguni Rahman Jolly have been paired up on screen for the first time, in this movie.
The story, which has been adapted from Imdadul Haq Milon’s novel of the same title, narrates the tale of a suitor named Raaj, who is Muslim, and a Hindu girl from an ordinary rural family named Krishnokoli.
Raaj (Shah Riaz) meets Krishnokoli (Jolly), and the charming boy immediately falls in love with her. The boy confesses his love to her, but she rejects his proposal. Raaj, who thinks of himself as the ‘Raja’ (king) of his village Sitarampur, cannot take the rejection. As a result, he kidnaps Krishnokoli, not out of his lust for her, rather to make her fall in love with him. Time goes by and one fine day, Raaj’s uncle comes to visit him and discovers the girl in his house.
The kind-hearted uncle instantly decides to release the girl but gets stuck in a conundrum, when he comes to know that the girl is Hindu. The story starts to twist as the question arises, where will the girl go?
Abdullah Zahir Babu did the screenplay of the movie. The cast includes Mamunur Rashid, Raisul Islam Asad and Fazlur Rahman Babu. Jazza multimedia produced the movie, and it has been released in 39 theatres nationwide, including the capital’s Balaka, Madhumita and Sony.
