REVIEW FOR ON THE WINGS OF DREAMS - BANGLADESHI FILM BY GOLAM RABBANY BIPLOB
The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a Bangladeshi film "On The Wings Of Dreams" (Swopnodanay) on 6th January at Sarathi Studios, Ameerpet. The film is written and directed by Golam Rabbany Biplob, and has Mahmuduzzaman Babu, Rokeya Prachy, Fazlur Rahman Babu, Momena Choudhury and Shamima Islam Tusti in the cast.
Fazlu and his 10-year-old son, Ratan, sell ointments and herbal medicines in village markets. One evening, Fazlu returns home with a second-hand pair of trousers for his son Ratan. His wife finds some foreign currency notes in the pockets of the trousers while she was washing them. They think that this money must be of great value, but they don't know how to exchange them. They seek help from Fazlu's childhood friend Siraj. Greed and high ambitions begin to emerge as one after another, their dormant desires show themselves changing their relationships.
The film won the Best Director Award in the Asian New Talent category at the Shanghai Film Festival, and a Special Jury Award in the International Film Festival of India, Goa, in 2007.
