Tauquir Ahmed's much anticipated directorial venture, Fagun Hawai, is set to release in 52 cinema halls across the nation today. Based on the 1952 Language Movement, this is his latest venture, mentioned the 52-year old director. It is certainly intriguing how the significance of the number 52 is rather relevant in this project. “February is a month of festivities for Bangladeshis, with celebrations including Pahela Falgun, Valentine's Day, and most importantly, the International Mother Language Day,” added Tauquir Ahmed. “Keeping all that in mind, the film was scheduled for release this month.”
Under the banner of Impress Telefilm Limited, starring Tisha and Siam together for the first time, Fagun Hawai will focus on the struggles of the era, along with the love that kindles between the two. Bollywood actor Yashpal Sharma (Lagaan), also plays an imperative role as a Pakistani police officer in the film. The film will also feature Abul Hayat, Afroza Banu, Fazlur Rahman Babu and Shaju Khadem among others. Fagun Hawai is an adaptation of the book by Tito Rahman titled, Bou Kotha Kou.
The director will have a rather busy schedule today, as he, along with a few of the cast members are set to visit the renowned movie theatre, Balaka in the morning. Later at noon, Tauquir Ahmed is also scheduled to be present at Bangabhaban for a special screening of Fagun Hawai with President Abdul Hamid.
