The Poster

The Poster’ is the story of a salaried government employee, Amzad -an ordinary middle class man living his life with resigned acceptance. He is a critic of the likes of Afzal-the latter being a firm believer in the Marxist-like, revolutionary zeal of the youth. ‘The Poster’ is a fast-paced narrative that sketches Amazad’s final disillusionment as he is fired for no reason from his job. Watch the movie for its moving depiction of the everyday travails of the common man, his jeopardized dreams, frustrations over work and family and the final march towards social reform.

Director Statement

I have always been fascinated with Zahir Raihans story who wrote the story ‘Poster’ at 1958.
Later on I read it first time at 2009 then discuss it with Mahdy Hasan who was in London that time. We start developing our script through online chatting. We had a facebook filmmaking group in Bangladesh. At 2014 june Mahdy & me meet Bangladesh and we start the processing of the production. It was quite challenging project for the whole team because of some shot. We even use more than 100 people in one shot. It took only 7 days for whole production but we took a long time for pre production.

After completing the production I back to my University and start discussing about the project with Editor and sound designer Rajesh Kapoor. We start editing dubbing and all sound part.

Finally The poster come up with it looks. My University was their behind me always with their helpful hands.
As a producer i select very few festivals and it works. Our film got selected for 41 festival and won 18 awards and film got huge response from Newspaper and Tv internet media at Bangladesh and India both.
