| Wish I had seen it earlier, on Big Screen
Watching Hollywood movies, it is pretty normal to think film industry in BD is way behind. As an engineering student again as a movie lover, I always prefer choose movies to watch precisely. When you're a movie lover yet busy, you do not have the luxury to explore movies which are not that famous. And taking a little faith in Giasuddin Selim, who is famous for his work 'Monpura', I chose to watch his latest work 'Swapnajaal'.

And I'm disappointed. Not because I watched it, because I didn't watch on Big Screen. I could've showed my support to him, no matter how small it is, inspiring him to keep up this work. Salute.

Even the plot rotate around two love birds, this film reflects the sick mentality of the society itself. It has shown the tendency of powerful people to take over other's property, no matter how brutal actions require. How people take advantages when someone needs help instead of supporting him/her. This film works as a mirror that reflects our own dark sides.

I often think, Bangali films takes long time to tell a simple story (about 2hours+). Most of the directors do not cut out unnecessary shots thinking how much effort they did on those shots. This long journey makes viewers to lose their focus on the subject. 'Swapojaal' also has running time for about 2 hours 20 minutes. But Giasuddin made this long journey worth every second. Each detail was necessary to viewers. So, if you're still thinking if you should watch it or not, read next paragrap.

If you're looking for a teenage love drama, you are not suitable for this. This story revolves around far more and beyond.

In the end, I'd like to appreciate Pori Moni's effort in this. She changed the way I thought about her before. She indeed can act and with proper guidance she will rule Bangladesh Film Industry in future. I pray for her success.
