The trailer of Unoponchash Batash Red October Films
With such a mysterious trailer, which features drama, horror, love, and even a dream sequence, the director leaves it upon the viewers to determine the genre of the film
The official trailer for the highly anticipated film, Unoponchash Batash, was released on Red October Films' YouTube channel on Saturday. The trailer says the film will be in theatres from March 13.
The trailer begins with a scene that has a supernatural overtone. However, the following scene shows a dream sequence. The remaining scenes from the trailer show snippets from a budding romance between the two lead characters of the film.
The lead stars - Neera and Ayon - are portrayed by Sharlin Farzana and Imtiaz Barshon.
Unoponchash Batash marks the feature film directorial debut for playwright, musician, and independent filmmaker, Masud Hasan Ujjal. The director also wrote the story, dialogues, song lyrics and screenplay for the film. He also did the art direction, photography, music direction, and poster design.
With such a mysterious trailer, which features drama, horror, love, and even a dream sequence, the director leaves it upon the viewers to determine the genre of the film. Ujjal mysteriously told reporters: "It is not a film that can be easily understood."
Although, the trailer comes with a description which reads: "Neera's unconditional love for Ayon leads her to believe her 'Life never ends,' more than ever. Their love story proceeds in the twirls of life's many offerings that brings ups and downs which only makes their bond stronger. How does it feel when you take a deep breath but it feels incomplete?
"Unoponchash Batash, the upcoming Bangla movie of Red October Films, is a story of two young lovers who find their passion for each other in the most unconventional way," the description ends.
Some additional scenes also reveal that businessman turned actor, Neville Ferdaus Hasan, and veteran actor Elora Gahar are also among the cast.
The trailer also shows that the remaining cast is made up of Dr Enamul Haq, Manoshi Bondopaddhay, Fariha Shams Sheuti, Khairul Bashar, Lamyea Ahmed, Shoeb Monir, Sabuj Rahman, Shoikot Siddique, Morshed Noman, Saadman Matis, Md Iqbal Hossain, Hridoy, Ontor, Nuha, and many others.
Ujjal also says that even though it was previously announced that the film will hit the silver screen on February 28, the release date has been postponed to March 13, just as it shows on the trailer.
Notably, the film received an uncut censor certificate on February 13, and the Bangladesh Film Censor Board gave a lot of plaudits to the director the following day. The lead stars and the director were also invited to tea at the Censor Board office so they could be congratulated in person by the board members.
The Director of Photography is Ridoy Sarkar, and editing was by Ismail Hossain. The film is presented by Asif Hanif, and was produced under the banner of Red October Films. The distributor for the film will be Esha Yousuf from Arial Creative Space Ltd.
