Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’, a docu-drama based on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina – the daughter of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, is all set for its world television (TV) premiere on December 15.
Three prominent channels of the country, Channel-i, Maasranga TV and GTV will telecast the docu-drama at 3pm simultaneously.
The biography-based documentary tries to capture a riveting story of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina out of a tragic backdrop. It demonstrates the captivating story of the Premier with layered interpretation of her tragedies and triumphs. Dramatically, yet honestly, the documentary progresses to portray a daughter, a leader, and ultimately a person along with her multiple facets and her journey associated with the genesis of Bangladesh.
Directed by Rejaur Rahman Khan Piplu, the 70-minute docu-drama is produced by CRI while Sadik Ahmed acted as cinematographer, Navnita Sen as editor and Debojyoti Mishra as music director.
It took the team almost five years to complete this project with the first couple of years being spent on orientation, reading, learning and planning. The script was written in a manner that layers and unfold incidents of thrills, anecdotes, tragedy and trauma.
Here, Sheikh Hasina has been depicted as a person who actually connects the most with the history and inceptions of Bangladesh. The filmmaker’s intention throughout the process was to convey the story in an authentic manner, unmarred by any influence which can be open to independent interpretation. Besides the history, the filmmaker sought to showcase as the uncanny and unusual sides of one of the most iconic figures of our time.
To note, ‘Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’, was released on November 15 this year in four prominent cinema halls in Dhaka. Later, the film had its countrywide release the very next week.
