Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, Animesh Aich, Giasuddin Selim, Nurul Alam Atique and Abu Shahed Emon are making the five-episode anthology series

Binge, an online digital video streaming platform, is launching a five-episode anthology series titled Bagh Bondi Shingho Bondi based on diverse experiences that people have faced during the Covid-19 pandemic.    

The series will explore how people’s livelihood, social status, physical and mental health have been affected during this pandemic through five different stories. 

The 30 minute-long episodes have been written by country's five prominent directors. Bagh Bondi Shingho Bondi will stream on Binge's platform from October 1. 

Among the stories, a short film titled Arai Mon Swapna, directed by Abu Shahed Emon, highlights the extreme pandemic-induced financial crisis of the lower middle class people of the society, their woes exacerbated by various social anomalies.

Esho Boshey Ekshathey Khai– a series directed by filmmaker Amitabh Reza Chowdhury portrays the emotional roller-coaster ride of a family during the lockdown. The plot is based on the weak family ties that get stronger over time while some get severed for good.

Mukh Asman, another short film in the series has been made by eminent director Animesh Aich, depicting the struggle of frontline doctors to address the challenges of the crisis. 

Jatri, produced by Giasuddin Selim, is about a coronavirus infected patient being socially isolated by everyone except a benevolent stranger.

Nishiddho Bashor, produced by director Nurul Alam Atik, provides a vantage look at crime and relationships going through changes amid the pandemic. 

All the short films were produced maintaining social distancing guidelines.
