Shohorta Dhaka

শহরটা ঢাকা (Bangla)

Bangladesh | 11 min | Drama | 2021 | Short Film (Live Action) | Bangla

In this tale, someone out there is sad because their finals went wrong, then there's someone else who's probably scared of a big double-decker bus or the tentacles of struggle stringing along with life, or someone very specific from this unknown city. Even the walls from this city keep singing the same song as its people. Amin is also one of them. So are his fears just baseless? The city named Dhaka lives on with thousand of stories like these.

Original Language

এই গল্পে কারো হয়তো ফাইনাল পরীক্ষাটা ভালো হয়নি বলে মন খারাপ, কারো হয়তো অজানা শহরে ডাবল-ডেকার বাস কিংবা জট নিয়ে ভয়, শহরের অসংখ্য মানুষের ভীড়ে কোন একজন মানুষকে নিয়ে ভয়। এই শহরের প্রাচীরগুলোও যেনো সেসব গল্পই বলে যায়। আমিন এমনই একজন, আমিনের এই ভয়গুলো কি একেবারেই নিরর্থক? হাজার রকমের গল্প বলে বেঁচে থাকে শহরটা। শহরটা ঢাকা।
