Bedabrata Pain’s directorial debut Chittagong is finally ready for release. The film will have its world premier at IFFLAfest. The makers have just released a new poster of the film. And it looks good.

And here’s the synopsis according to the official release…

To say that 14-year-old Jhunka Roy’s life was about to change would be an understatement. Set against the beautiful forests and villages of Chittagong, a youth movement was underway, leading up to a drastic revolution. Based on true events in British occupied India of the 1930s, a group of untrained school youth handed the British their first military defeat. Led by a schoolteacher, local villagers and school children showed the power of mass resistance over colonial oppression.

Bedabrata Pain’s directorial debut is a coming-of-age tale of triumph, sacrifice and love, as a young boy’s determination sets the course for an entire nation’s freedom. This progression is what would later spark the first mass peasant movement in India, with the help of Jhunka Roy.

    Looks good … Serenzy, it is based on same historical event

  3. Shalu

    It is based on the same historical event on which the movie Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se was based. In fact some director (Anurag Kashyap I think) had accused Amitabh Bachchan of pulling strings to stop the release of this film as his son’s film was based on the same subject.
