The film is written and directed by a second generation Bangladeshi-Italian

Bongo, the biggest streaming platform in Bangladesh, will release a new film about a Bangladeshi immigrant growing up in Italy, on November 13.

The semi-autobiographical romantic comedy movie is about second-generation challenges in steering life in Rome, and also a spirited depiction of the complications of young love caught between different beliefs and cultures.

The film is written and directed by Phaim Bhuyian, a second generation Bangladeshi-Italian, who plays the protagonist in this movie. 

Phaim, the filmmaker’s namesake, a young muslim of Bangladeshi origin born in Italy 22 years ago, lives with his family in Rome’s multiethnic Torpignattara neighbourhood, works as a museum steward, and plays in a band.

At a concert, he meets Asia, his exact opposite: pure instinct, and no rules.  From there, the film showcases the unusual love story of two people from two different worlds. This also gave rise to a small fresco, in which the characters teeter continuously between obligation and desire as they seek a necessarily multifaceted identity.

"The movie depicts an accurate picture of multi-ethnic second-generation life abroad of late. With its quirky humour, I believe our audience in Bangladesh and the diaspora located outside will enjoy it greatly." said the  Chief Operating Officer at Bongo, Fayaz Taher.
