Panaji: Mohammad Imran, high commissioner of
Bangladeshfilm city and he hoped that this effort will help uplift the content of films in his country.

The high commissioner of Bangladesh was speaking after opening the Country Focus section at the 51st International Film Festival of India (Iffi), being hosted in Goa. Bangladesh is the country of focus at this year’s festival.

Imran said he is happy Bangladesh is the Country of focus at Iffi as it shows the healthy diplomatic ties between the two friendly nations.

“We are happy that a joint film by India and Bangladesh will be launched soon on the father of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The effort was taken up earlier too, but it did not take off. I am glad that a new filmmaker has been chosen to take the project forward and we are looking forward to it,” Imran said.

Four films from Bangladesh are being shown at Iffi under the Country Focus section.

The section opened with the film by Bangladesh’s veteran filmmaker Tanvir Mokammel. ‘Rupsa Nodir Banke’ or ‘Quiet Flows the River Rupsa’, is a fictional biopic based on the life of a left wing leader.

“We are happy that Bangladesh is the country of focus this year in IFFI and we would like to thank the organisers immensely for that. It’s a befitting year, as this year marks the 50th anniversary of liberation of Bangladesh as well as the diplomatic relations between India and Bangladesh,” said Mokammel.

The Country of Focus is a special segment that recognises a country’s cinematic excellence and contributions.

Speaking of the influence of Indian filmmakers like Satyajit Ray on the filmmakers from Bangladesh, Mokammel said, “People like Ray come once in an age. If one follows his method of working, they will never make any mistake as each shot would be well designed. But, unfortunately these days it’s not a fashion to follow Ray’s kind of film making.”

That's all we need, more RSS/VHP cultural intrusion and tacky Bollywood dance numbers.

Thanks but no Thanks.

Hindutva nutcases will stop at nothing it seems to counter the Chinese, including cultural hegemony.

Hindutvas, get it through your thick skulls,

These are typical middle class Indian housewives,



This is a typical middle class Bangladeshi housewife. No similarity whatsoever.


Bangladeshi culture has more similarity with cultures of Muslim countries like Indonesia or Pakistan than with Indian (majority Hindu) culture. Of course there is a very small Indian bootlicker "Chetona" minority in Bangladesh who wished they were born Hindu, but their numbers are minuscule.

Bengal has a very vibrant culture. They can make some exceptional movies like the one of Tapan Da.
