Zahir Raihan directed one of the most feted Bangla movies, “Jibon Thekey Neya”, featuring Khan Ataur Rahman, Rowshan Jamil, Anwar Hossain, Razzaque, and Suchanda.

Raihan made a bold step with the movie by narrating the contemporary political turmoil in the then East Pakistan. The mass upsurge of 1969 was brilliantly captured in the movie by the ace filmmaker.

The movie is also special for another reason: the National Anthem of Bangladesh, “Amar Shonar Bangla” was played for the first time in a Bangla movie and the song ignited the sense of Bangalee nationalism among the masses.
