With the aim of highlighting the lives of village dwellers, many television directors choose the countryside and rural areas of Bangladesh to set their stories in. Among the many television shows set in villages, Vober Hat is loved by many to this day. Set in the village of Vobhodia, it followed the story of two brothers, Harem Kha and Marem Kha, who have cut all ties for 25 years over a trivial incident.
The serial starred noted actors such as ATM Shamsuzzaman, Humayun Faridi and Salahuddin Lavlu, who also directed it. Lavlu is also known for Ronger Manush, another village-based serial which began airing in 2004 and saw landmark popularity. Amader Nurul Huda, a romance based in a village, was also well received by the audience.
Zahid Hasan played the character of Nurul Huda on the show, which also starred Afzal Hossain, Humayun Faridi, Mahfuz Ahmed, Riaz and Moushumi among others. Furthermore, Zahid Hasan starred and directed another village-based serial called Ghughur Haat. The television comedy, Choita Pagol, starring popular actors Chanchal Chowdhury and Jaya Ahsan, also won the hearts of many upon release.
Even today, there is a wide array of village-based television shows on air. Among them, Oloshpur, Barisal Bonaam Noakhali and Majnu Ekjon Pagol Nohe, have made their marks on television.
