Private Project


As a child, Komola learns about the society around her by listening to her grandmother recite Puthis (mythological or folklore scrolls). She starts to realize the meaning of those lessons when she starts blossoming. She had decided against marriage. But a young Romeo lays a trap. And she gets caught. She gets to face the so-called social reality. There was no way she was going to accept the yoke of Patriarchy. Her whole being revolts. She would fight as long as Society would objectify her. And this very fight restores her to the eternal, time-honored status of a ‘Bengali Woman’.

Director Statement

Komolapuran is a socially conscious short-film that tries to encapsulate one of the essences of womanhood in Bangladesh. It does so through the story and the eyes of Komola, the heroine.

Komolapuran is not a conventional commercial film. However, it can’t be categorically labeled as an art film either. It embodies a story that approximates reality without over-dramatization or without glossing over the grotesque realities of human nature, discrimination, bigotry, sexism or oppression – as it happens in Bangladesh or for that matter, any rudimentary society.
