Two local films ‘Khancha’, 
‘Rina Brown’ to be screened today

‘Khancha’, a government-grant winning full-length feature film and ‘Rina Brown’, a joint production of Impress Telefilms and Jazz Multimedia, will be screened today as a part of the ongoing ‘Dhaka International Film Festival’.

‘Khancha’ will be screened at 5:30pm and ‘Rina Brown’ at 7:30pm at the Central Public Library Auditorium in Shahbag.

Set against the backdrop of the British period, the film ‘Khancha’ has been directed by Akram Khan and produced by Impress Telefilm. Joya Ahsan, Chandni, Azad Abul Kalam, Arman Parvez Murad, Kayes Chowdhury, Mahbuba Rezanur, Sadika Rahman Raisa and Mamunur Rashid, among others, have enacted different roles in the film. Azad Abul Kalam has acted opposite Joya in the film, while veteran actors Mamunur Rashid and Kayes Chowdhury will be seen playing significant characters. In the story of the film, Hindu families from East Bengal move to India after the partition in 1947.

Azad Abul Kalam and Akram have written the screenplay for the film based on a story by Hasan Azizul Haque. Tanvir Khondokar is the cinematographer of the film and Binod Roy has directed the music, while singer Sagorika has lent her vocal to the playback of the film.

On the other hand, written and directed by Shameem Akhtar, the main theme of the film ‘Rina Brown’ is patriotism and the 1971 Liberation War.

The storyline of the film depicts a love story between an Anglo-Indian Christian named Sandra and Dara, an open minded person who belonged to a highly educated family.

After many years, Dara meets Sandra at a restaurant and they talk for hours. They recall their memories. Dara used to call Sandra ‘Rina Brown’ when they were young. The film uses flashback technique to present the story of their lives in 1971. Besides their love story, the film also depicts the Liberation War in parallel.  

The film casts veteran Indian actor Barun Chand who debuted with Satyajit Ray’s ‘Shamikaran’ while debutants Proma Pabni and Mahfuz Rizvi portray the lead roles. The name Rina Brown is inspired from Suchitra Sen’s role in the film ‘Saptapadi’, where Suchitra plays the role of a Christian woman.

The other important casts of the film includes Ataur Rahman, Shampa Reza, Saberi Alam and Prabal Chowdhury, among others.

Besides two Bangladeshi films, the festival will also screen films from Sri Lanka, Turkey, Sweden, Spain, Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Bhutan, Palestine, Iran, China, Italy, France, Japan, India, Portugal, Tajikistan and Russia, today at the different venues of the festival.
