There are functions in   music, lighting, sound, set design, costume or any part of the story. Without functions,   the whole film will be irrelevant. It also destroys the film form. In ‘My Friend Rashed’,   we can see function in every shot, sequence or event. There are many functions in this   film. Without this most valuable principle, no film can be created.   Similarity and repetition: Similarity is another important principle of film form.   Object, color, place, person, sound or character may be a motif. We can notice motif in   this film.  A motif also can be lighting pattern or camera position. In this film, we can   know that similarity and repetition preserve the stability. It helps to know the next steps   of a film. Similarity and repetition of this film are very strong.   Difference and variation: Variation is also a fundamental principle of film form.   A film is composed with not only similarity and repetition but also difference and   variation. We notice that in this film, difference changes the system or way of sequence   or event.  For example, Rashed, Ibu, Shafique go to war. This is variation.  We can also differentiate the characters. Similarity and repetition gives stability of the   film but difference and variation moves the action ahead. Besides, we can also notice in   this film that Rashed and his friends rescue Shafique. It is also a variation.  Development: Developmentis another vial principle of film form. In this film, we can   know by development how the steps advance. We can also know how similarity and repetition and difference and variation are lead. For knowing development, we have to segment the film part by part. We also can segment it into some parts.   For example, bringing bullets and fighting against military.  Unity/disunity: Unity or disunity is also another principle of film form. We can   perceive similarity and variation of the film by unity. Unity can complete the film.   Unity develops film form logically.   Besides, disunity also plays an important role in expressing the thematic meaning of a   film.  Analysis of the film according to the tools of   audiovisual story-telling  Analysis and the tools of audiovisual story-telling are given below  1. The frame  2.Light 3.Color 4.Sound   The Frame: Through the frame, the filmmakers tell the audience where to look at,   what to see and how. Selecting frame is a vital or fundamental act of filmmaking.   At first, the frame directs our attention. So we easily concentrate on the film.   The frame or image of ‘My Friend Rashed’ is very important. We can notice sometimes object, characters, places, things are the frame.   For example, the river, the military, the school etc.   We can also know the activities of the film by frame. We can realize the whole film   by frame.  Light: Light is also an important thing for filmmaking. It creates the mood of the   scene and the characters. In darkness, we can’t see anything. Camera also can’t see.   So light is must. It can reveal, conceal form, texture or details. Light also can intrigue,   excite or mystify. Light can concentrate us and move from one area to another. In this   film, in every shot, light plays a vital role. We can differentiate night and day light of the   film easily. No light, no film.   Color: Color is also an important thing for creating mood and visual metaphor. Color   directs our attention. It can also intrigue, excite, mystify. There is no use of color of this   film. Color is used increasingly in commercial film. The film can express its expression without color.   The Power of Sound: In a film the power of sound should be very active and clear.   Sound can shape how we perceive and interpret the image. We can also interpret same images differently depending on the sound track. Film sound is very important because   it can direct our attention. Sound can guide us through the image. The sound track of the   film is very strong, active and clear. In every scene or shot, we can hear the clear sound  track.It can identify or guide us about the scene especially about the character or object   of the film.
