Through a refined selection process starting at Ekushey Book Fair in February 2020, Bongo has selected 6 best seller books
Bridging literature and video production, Bongo is launching Bongo BOB (Based on Books) to set a new industry standard for content. The Bongo team has partnered with book authors.
"We have secured the book rights for the entire season. Now we are excited to launch the country's first series of book adaptations," said Mushfiqur Rahman, Chief Content Officer at Bongo.
“In Bangladesh, cinema was once called a "Boi" or Book. Maybe it's because the early journey of film making started from the inspiration of different books & literature. Like the first silent film of the subcontinent 'Bilvamangal' and the first film with dialogue 'Jamaishti', Bangladesh's first talking film 'Mukh O Mukhosh' was also literary-dependent. This literary reliance has not only enriched the Bengali film but also brought it commercial success as well as international recognition. Films around the world are no exception. Looking at the world of movies at the moment, you can see that all of the world-famous superhero movies are made from comic books published by Marvel and DC Comics. The journey of this duo of books and movies is eternal.”
Mushfiqur Rahman, the Chief Content Officer of Bongo, further adds, "Bongo BOB is our dream project. Its continuity will be maintained. We have dreams and plans to make dramas, telefilms as well as films very soon through Bongo BOB series''.
List of selected books for the first season of "Bongo BOB” are Shahaduz Zaman Rochona shongroho – 1 (Shahaduz Zaman), Moronottom (Sadat Hossain), Chorer Master Computer Engineer (Rahitul Islam), Alibaba O Chalichar (Shibabrata Barman), Nova Scotia (Mahbub Morshed), Hakulla (Jobaed Ahsan), Laboni (Maruf Rehman).
