Fagun Haway (2019) Bangladeshi Film

Fagun Haway (2019)    Fagun Haway is a Bangladeshi romantic and historical drama film on Language Movement occurred in 1952 directed by Tauquir Ahmed in 2019. It is produced by Faridur Reza Sagar. The film is made inspired by Tito Rahman’s short story “Bou Kotha Kow”. The screenplay is written by Tauquir Ahmad himself. It is starred by Siam Ahmed, Nusrat Imrose Tisha and Yashpal Sharma in the lead roles. But other supporting characters also have played their roles importantly. Bangladesh has got not more movies on Language Movement in Bangladesh. Jibon Thekey Neya (1970) directed by the famous film director of Bangladesh Zahir Raihan, is made based on Language Movement. Fagun Haway also has been made based on Language Movement occurred in 1952 in Bangladesh (East Pakistan).  Story:  [ “In 1947 Indian subcontinent was divided on the basis of religion. And Bangladesh became a part of Pakistan. The next 24 years was an era of deprivation and suppression. The people of Bangladesh with strong cultural heritage and history were pressurized to change their culture and language. On the 27th January, 1952, Pakistan Government again declared that Urdu shall be the only state language of Pakistan.” (Fagun Haway, 2019)   “On the 21st of February, 1952, Pakistan Government imposed curfew in Dhaka. Students broke the curfew. Police open fired on the students’ precession. Salam, Barkat, Rafique and Zabbar were killed along with many unnamed others. The martyrs of language movement. Now we speak in our Mother Tongue ‘BANGLA’. The 21st February is declared as the ‘International Mother Languafge day’.”(Fagun Haway, 2019)]  Main Theme:   “A police officer in East Pakistan (Bangladesh) forces the Bengali-speaking villagers of Chndranagar, Khulna to speak Urdu and abandon their mother language Bengali.”  Personal Review:  The film is based on Language Movement occurred in 1952 in East Pakistan now Bangladesh. The film features several important dates these are the source of the film story. The story of the film is also taken from ‘Bou Kotha Kow’ a short story. The important dates are:-  23rd December, 1951.  26th December, 1951.  15th January, 1952.  28th January, 1952.  2nd February, 1952 and  20th February, 1952.  Fagun Haway is an excellent work of Tauquir Ahmed. He has directed several other famous films that make him famous in Bangladesh and he achieves National and other awards for outstanding film making styles for example; Oggatonama (The Unnamed) (2016). He is also famous for his Haldaa (2017). It’s a historical film. It is also a romantic film on Language Movement. Language Movement is a real and true event in Bangladesh. But he makes it as fictional adding romance or a love story between a young Muslim boy and a young Hindu girl. Here Yashpal Sharma (India) has acted as a Pakistani police officer. Siam Ahmed as the Muslim young boy and Nusrat Imrose Tisha as the Hindu young girl. What an outstanding performance! Specially, Siam has acted his best. His acting in Poramnon 2 (2018) and Dahan (2018) is unnatural and dialogues are not fluent. But he has done his best in Fagun Haway(2019) doing natural acting and with fluent as well as standard dialogues. Siam Ahmed has acted in the film as Nasir and Tisha as Dipti. Tisha’s acting and dialogues are also excellent and standard. Yashpal Sharma has also acted his best. Actually the script is a tight one and there is less dialogue in the film and director has imposed his strength on visualization. The background music is extra ordinary. Cinematography is also outstanding. But there should do color correction precisely. As color is the aesthetic of the historical film. There is difference of 67 years. So, the visual color and the environment should be made based on that event according to history. Set design, make up, costumes are good. Actually the story is about a village only. But this kind of event is about a national issue. So, it would be good if the film is made with some inner events and environments of our Language Movement. There are many events and inners feelings of then students that are not expressed anyway. But this kind of step making films about our Language Movement is really admirable and adorable. I specially thank the director for his overall outstanding work. A good director can make a good film not professional or non-professional actor and actress. Fagun Haway is the good example about it. It is also a hit film in Bangladesh. Actually, many audiences have gone to cinema hall to watch a cinema about whose story they have never seen it before. It is also an attractive story. The performance and the dialogues are also standard and natural that help it to make it hit. Other supporting characters also have acted excellent, for example, Abul Hayat, Fazlur Rahman Babu Shahidul Alam Sachchu etc.
