“Dhaka Attack”, which is being termed by makers as the first cop thriller of the country - has been in the works for a long time, but with its release date announced, (October 6), the film is gradually amping up the hype. After releasing a cool poster earlier this month, the makers dropped a new teaser online, and though it does not give away much about the storyline, it sure does give a glimpse of the high-octane action that “Dhaka Attack” promises.
At a little over one minute, the teaser once again sets the premise of a series of mysterious murders, and then goes into a fast-cut of tense, thrilling action sequences, interjected with a glimpse of a glam-filled song or two. Arifin Shuvoo is again in the focus, with an impressive cast of supporting actors in Syed Hasan Imam, Afzal Hossain, Alamgir and Shatabdi Wadud. Mahiya Mahi also makes a couple of appearances as a staunch journalist, while ABM Sumon can also be seen toting rifles in combat gear. The teaser also gives the first looks at the villains, one of them seemingly a man of Asian background, and another afro-haired man in the far background. Near the end, there is one big explosion that seems to be an important point in the story.
The film began production in 2014, under the direction of Dipankar Dipon based on a Sunny Sarwar script. Dhaka Metropolitan Police assisted in the film, which is being produced by Three Wheelers Limited with funding from Bangladesh Police Welfare Trust. The first teaser of the film came way back in November last year, and the first look poster came out earlier this month, launching the films promotional campaign.
“Dhaka Attack” is set for a wide international release in countries of the Middle East, Canada, UK, USA, Europe, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand Singapore and Brunei, after its October 6 domestic release.
