Fagun Haway
(2019)

Fagun Hawaay - Tauqir Ahmed's Yet Another Beauty
Tauqir Ahmed, Take A Bow Sir!! Yet another Artistic Beauty from one of our BEST!!

Fagun Hawaay is the 6th Directorial of Tauqir Ahmed. All his previous 5 movies have been appreciated highly by the audience. So, audience obviously had some high expectations from Fagun Hawaay. And It Truly Lives Up To The Expectations.

Set in 1952, the movie describes the situation of Bangladesh back then. The story revolves around a village named "Chandrapur" & it's people. It shows how Pakistan tried to impose Urdu on the Bangladeshis. A Pakistani officer who joins being in charge of the village, Forces everyone to learn Urdu & talk in Urdu. Even he can't bear a bird singing in Bangla. He wants the bird to learn Urdu & forces it to learn Urdu. However, Nasir & his team who perform Theatre Plays, can't be controlled by the Officer. They raise their voices & stands for their rights. This way the story moves forward. The film also beautifully portrays the love story of Nasir & Dipti.

Many people have a concept in their mind that, Tauqir Ahmed's films are slow & not "Commercial". Also going by the concept, many thought this film will be more of a 'Serious' film. But its not. Tauqir Ahmed blends humour perfectly into the story. The first half is very entertaining. Specially Yashpal Sharma, Shaju Khadem give a lot of laughter moments. In the 2nd half the movie obviously needs to move but still it doesn't loose it's flow. At the same time there are moments which can make you cry. And who else than Fazlur Rahman Babu can portray emotion BEST on screen. The film is a complete package of Humour,Emotion,Drama. Well, it has everything that needs to make a film, A perfect one.

Acting : The film's USP is it's Casting. Yashpal Sharma, Tisha, Babu, Siam, Abul Hayat, Shaju, Ronok, Shacchu. Tauqir Ahmed has gone for all the most talented ones anyone could have ever casted for their movie. Yashpal Sharma has done a great job. Obviously he is a very good actor. Siam Ahmed, I really believe he'll be topping the chart very soon. He performs Nasir perfectly. Tisha looked good all the way. Fazlur Rahman Babu had not much of a screen time, but he Nails It everytime he is On Screen. Everyone else did exactly the same their roles required them to do.

Other Aspects : Dialogues of the film are Beautiful. Truly they are. Tauqir Ahmed has written some very motivational & lovely words. Direction by him is Great as always. Perhaps the screenplay could have been a bit tighter, but can't be complained.

Cinematography was Okay. Not so great. Editing was good. Music By Pinto Ghosh & Rokon Emon was very good. The title song is very beautiful. Also the Background score by Rokon Emon must be appreciated.

Well, I've enjoyed "Fagun Hawaay". And I will recommend it highly. This one shouldn't be missed. This is a film which will take you with it for a journey. It'll make you laugh, it'll bring tears in your eyes & also give you Goosebumps.

At the end, Wanna Thank My fav Tauqir Ahmed for making another beautiful film. Would request him to keep making movies like this. Also to Siam Ahmed, Don't wanna miss watching your movies every year in the theatre

Rating : 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

Debi
(2018)

Debi - A Must Watch
There was a scene in 'Debi' which made each & everyone present in the cinema hall 'Scream' very hard. Yes, that was scary. And 'Debi' gives you moment like that very often in its 1.5 hours runtime. 'Debi' is an outstandingly made movie with some unbelievably great acting from its lead actors.

Before writing anything I will say, there's two version of Debi. One if you have read the novel 'Debi' and another if you haven't. Because there were moments when I said, 'Arey eta to boi te chilo na'. And that's logical. You can't portray everything the book had. And to make that balance you need to change things a bit. Director Anam Bishwash exactly did that. And he did a wonderful job. But at the same time it is the same story Humayun Ahmed wrote.

Debi is a thrilling movie, With a lot of suspense, mystery in it. The story obviously written by Humayun Ahmed is extraordinary. And Anam Bishwash wrote the screenplay pretty well too. But at times it looked like a bit fast moving. Debi had so many thrilling moments which keeps the audience on the edge of the seat. Debi has the power to hold the attention of the audience from the beginning to the end. It presents no unnecessary scenes, which keeps the audience attached with the movie. But there are things which rises some questions!! As well as I can say this without giving any spoiler, Misir Ali had very little presence in the second half. We know Misir Ali's mystery solving skill. But in the movie the portrait of that was missing.

Again that brings the fact of reading the novel. I knew Misir Ali already, so I was wanting to see him doing that. The first half was fast moving. It introduces the characters very well. The second half is better. Engaging. The climax was very good too. But there is something which you keep looking for. Maybe an extra bit of push. A little bit. But with some great acting the climax looks very very good.

Acting : After watching the movie I was in regrets. Why we don't see Jaya Ahsan on big screen too often!! She is flawless. Outstanding. In a very simple way she portrayed Ranu as well as anyone could imagine. Words fall short to describe her acting.

Chanchal Chowdhury as Misir Ali was very good. He did Misir Ali the way it was written for the movie. But as a reader of Humayun Sir's Debi, I wanted a little different Misir Ali. But that's out of equation as you can't claim why Misir Ali is not like the novel's one!! It is Anam Bishwash's Debi.

Shabnam Faria was very impressive. Iresh Zaker in his little role did pretty well. The character of Anis played by Animesh Aich was a bit weak. Animesh Aich maybe could do bit better.

Other Aspects :- Anam Bishwash in his first directorial did extraordinary. Was very professional. But which was more outstanding was the Background score of the movie. It was Sensational. Makes the movie way more gripping. Cinematography was good but nothing extraordinary to talk about.

Overall Debi is my movie of the year. A very very well made movie. Making of the movie deserves appreciation. Bangla cinema needs movies like this more often. And yes, You will miss something very good if you don't watch 'Debi'.

My Personal Rating : 🌟🌟🌟🌟 4*/5
