A quick chat with Masud Hasan Ujjal
Director Masud Hasan Ujjal is now busy with his Eid productions. His new production Uber er Raat is almost done. Jakia Bari Momo and FS Nayeem are the casts in the upcoming TV drama. It is the sequel of Akkhay Companyr Juto, which aired back in 2014. The story of Uber er Raat will pick up from where Akkhay Company’r Juto ended. Showtime caught up with the busy director for a short chitchat to learn about his projects. Showtime: You were working on a feature film about three deceased cultural figures, poet Rudra Mohammad Shahidullah; singer Sanjeev Chowdhury; and the founder of the band Mohiner Ghoraguli, singer-musician, Gautam Chattopadhy. What is the update on that? Masud: Yes, thats right. I am still looking for appropriate actors for both Rudro and Sanjeev Da’s characters. Its not easy to find such personality who can match them. It will take time. Showtime: So what you are doing right now? Masud: I am busy with Eid productions. This time three productions are going to be aired on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. Showtime: Have you finished shooting? Masud: Two of them are done. We are waiting for the perfect casting for the other one. Showtime: Which two? Masud: One is Uber er Raat. Syeda Shawon and Nasir Hossain are in it along with Nayeem and Momo. Another drama is Notes. Casts are Tisha, Iresh, Saadman Matis, Kona (singer), Joy Shahriar, Tanveer Alom Shwajeeb and Faisal Ahmed Adnan. Showtime: You are very open about your work through your social media account. You seemed upset about TV productions. What has you upset? Masud: I almost stopped working for TV media for a few days. But this time I had to start once again. I could not say ‘no’ to all the requests. But my heart wants to do something for the silver screen. Showtime: Then what happened? Masud: See, I am a director. All of my works become film materials, as I have the same dedication for my TV productions as I have big screen works. When I found myself giving the same effort as film making to a TV production that made me upset. Because a film is a film. And a TV production is just a TV production. Showtime: Then when are we getting to see you starting your movie? Masud: Very soon. You will get to know the updates shortly.
