Playwright Masum Reza turns novelist


Masum Reza

Noted TV playwright Masum Reza has turned novelist. His two novels -- "Meen Konna-doy" and "Goalkeeper" -- were recently launched at the Ekushey Book Fair.
The young writer talked about his debut novels.
"'Meen Konna-doy' is a novel about two girls -- Manjeela and Josna -- who want to accomplish something but face obstacles from the male-dominated society. They die and return in the form of fish. Then people start paying heed to them," says Reza.
"Goalkeeper" is the story of a young football talent. He wants to be the goalkeeper of a major team. But he encounters hostility from players of the district team, as they do not want to make space for the young talent.
Both books are available at the Jukto Prokashoni stall.
Reza gained popularity for the serial "Ronger Manush" (directed by Salahuddin Lavlu) that aired in ntv. He has also written script for the film "Molla Barir Bou".
