The first trailer of Jaya Ahsan and Ferdous-starrer film “Putro” was released online on Tuesday, giving a glimpse into the Saiful Islam Mannu-directed story about an autistic child.
The film, which has been produced by the Film and Publications department of the information ministry and co-produced by Impress telefilm, chronicles the story of a special-needs child, his parents' struggles, and the social stigma about autism. Aside from the lead cast, a strong supporting cast including Dolly Zahur, Azizul Hakim, Shams Suman and Homayra Himu can been seen in the trailer, which also features songs by Bappa Mazumdar and Mehreen.
Two songs from the film, titled “Aj Kichu Bolona Amay” and “Jodi Dukkho Chhuye Dekho” were also released as part of the film's promotional campaign yesterday on Youtube. Both the songs show the child actor who is the epicenter of the film, singing at a singing competition.
“Putro” is set for release countrywide on January 5, making it the first release of 2018. According to distributors Jaaz Multimedia, proceeds from the film will go to welfare of autistic children.
