This is a satire film that announced the arrival of a new bangladeshi cinema. The story of the film unfolds in humorous and sharp manners, touching on issues such as religious view, generation gap, tradition and modern...展开ization, and family love all at the same time. Amin Patowary, an extreme islamist imam (religious leader) in the small Bangladeshi village of Mithanupur, puts a taboo on any images. One day, Kumar, an elementary school teacher, buys a television set, which draws large numbers of villagers to his house. Although Kumar is hindu, Amin forces him to get rid of the television set. However, the villagers who now aware of the charm of television react against Amin. The only hope left for Amin in dispair is to go on Haji (pilgrimage to Mecca). But then, his pilgrimage gets into trouble and, unexpectedly, he is saved by the television, which he regards as the biggest taboo. Amin stubbornly refuses to embrace modern civilization as his thinking is based on radical islamism. The director, Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, sees his stubbornness as not necessarily a bad thing: Sometimes it demonstrates the evils of extreme religious belief; at other times, it shows the fact that Amin is a feeble old man who loves his family. His series of actions to hold to his religious beliefs seems more like a theater of the absurd rather than a serious matter. is a satire film with a very unique style. This is the result of the talent and passion of Mostofa Sarwar Farooki who have managed to survive as an independent filmmaker in Bangladesh.
