Bangladeshi-British filmmaker Munsur Ali’s debut film “Shongram” will see its world premiere in London Indian Film Festival on July 14. The film will be screened again on July 16 at the Cineworld Shaftesbury Ave in London.

For the first time a Bangladeshi film is participating in the London Indian Film Festival which was established in 2010 to showcase independent film from the subcontinent.

Fashion model and aspiring actor Dilruba Yasmeen Ruhee pairs with talented young actor Amaan Reza for the film. The international cast includes Bollywood’s Anupam Kher and Hollywood/European star Asia Argento. Other Bangladeshi artistes in the film are Armaan Parvez Murad, Shubrotho and Ananta Hira.

“Shongram” is a romantic drama which is set against the backdrop of the Liberation War of 1971, a flashback story told forty-three years later in London by a British-Bangladeshi freedom fighter Karim. He shares his experience with a reporter. He tells the tale of falling in love during a difficult time. Karim played by Amaan Reza falls in love with a jovial rural girl Asha played by Ruhee. What further complicates the situation is the fact that they were of different religion. Karim is Muslim while Asha is from a Hindu family – this single aspect becomes the cause for a rollercoaster journey.
