Ashfaque Nipun’s Sabrina and Amitabh Reza Chowdhury’s Bodh are expected to be worthwhile, given the interesting subjects.
Fresh from the slate of Bangladeshi content on Hoichoi season 5, is Sabrina. Hoichoi dropped a short video for the official announcement of the Hoichoi original that is about the stories of women, the oppression meted out to them and how they resist the atrocities.
Here's a look at the video:
Director Ashfaque Nipun adds to the air of mystery and curiosity surrounding the project in the video. He addresses the viewers saying, "Who is Sabrina? From where has she come? Everyone wants to possess her but everyone is afraid of her. Does she know something that if known would put everyone in danger? Does she have supernatural powers or is she just like one of us?" The sound of a calling bell is heard and Ashfaque says that it is Sabrina calling him. “She will call you too,” he added before the motion poster pops up.
Hoichoi is planning to bring out at least seven-nine originals in Bangladesh for next year, the titles being Boli, Karagar, Kaiser and Bodh.
When we talk about Bengali web series on OTT platforms, Bangladesh has come up with high quality productions, backed with deft direction, ace acting and good cinematography. Bodh, helmed by Amitabh Reza Chowdhury, promises the same.
Have a look at the announcement here:
Amitabh Reza Chowdhury's debut film for the big screen had been critically acclaimed. The popular film titled Aynabaji, was screened at the prestigious Cannes film festival in 2016. His web series Dhaka Metro dealt with a serious premise. It was based on a surreal road trip of a frustrated Dhaka intellectual.
His latest offering Bodh is about a judge who has retired from his profession and has come to realize certain mistakes he had committed earlier in his working life. Is there any possibility to atone for all he had done wrong, now when it is too late? The series broaches this unusual subject of social observation.
More details for Sabrina and Bodh are awaited.
