New sensational action-romantic-thriller movie Dehorokkhi has proved to be a success in the cinemas. 

“Dehorokkhi,” the big-budget movie was released in 70 cinemas all over the country last week. The movie starring Anisur Rahman Milon, Kazi Maruf and Bobby created a buzz through its trailer being aired in TV and social networking sites.

The manager of Balaka Cinema Hall informed the Dhaka Tribune: “The film ‘Dehorakkhi’ is doing good business. Every day in every show there is more than an ample crowd is gathering to watch the film.” Similar report has been received from Ziaul Islam, owner of Monihar cinema hall in Jessore. Bogra’s Noor Nabi, manager of Sonia cinema hall, said: “Dehorokkhi was quite successful until the interruption caused by the strikes.”

Director of the film Iftekhar Chowdhury, came to the limelight with his very first film “Khoj- the Search,” unveiled some attention-grabbing facts of the movie in an interview with Dhaka Tribune.

What were you expecting from this film? Was the film able to meet your expectations?

“Well, this is my second film and it is also a big budget film—both the factors are crucial for me. We released ‘Dehorokkhi’ in 70 movie theatres at the same time.The film has been running successfully for 2 weeks now, and the sales report suggests that business is getting better, something that is unheard of at this time in the film industry. I want to thank everyone for the support and love they showed for my film "Dehorokkhi”. Special thanks to the fans who are always the key factor in fulfilling my expectations. The film is coming to Cineplex very soon and to the world market as well.”

What is the story of this film?

“It is a romantic action film. An underworld don (Anisur Rahman Milon) hires a bodyguard (Kazi Maruf) to protect the love of his life Sohana (Bobby). But the bodyguard is unaware of the fact that the blissfully feminine Sohana is held as a captive against her will. It’s a complete motion package of love, hate and action.”

The film has a flavor of the trend set by M A Jalil Ananta. Are you really influenced by him?

“No, not at all, Ananta and I both started our career with the same film but this is a completely different movie. I think our film industry should move forward to compete in the international market. So, I made a movie which can be of interest to the foreign viewers as well.”

Why choosing such an uncommon cast?

“I wanted my film to catch everyone’s attention; therefore I chose stars from different platforms for the three leading characters. Anisur Rahman Milon is one of the popular faces on television while Kazi Maruf is popular among the regular cinema goers. On the other hand, Bobby is talented and her beauty has an international standard.”
