Premiere of Karigor

The premiere show of the full-length Bangla film, “Karigor” - The Circumciser- based on a tale from the Liberation War was held recently at Aswini Kumar Hall.
The movie is directed by noted writer, journalist and filmmaker Anwar Shahadat. The cast includes Rokeya Prachi, Rani Sarkar, Sushama Sirker, Joyonto Acharya and Masum Aziz.
Abu Hena Muhammad Rahmatul Munim, Barisal Divisional Commissioner, journalist Shafiq Rahman, Anwar Shahadat, director of the film and poet Sarkar Amin delivered speeches at the inaugural ceremony of the show.
The story of the movie revolves around a 'Karigor', Mutalib, who lives in a remote area in the southern Barisal region of the country.
In 1971, the circumciser lied to the Pakistani army to save thousands of Hindus. The goal of the army operation was to kill the Hindus as 'enemies of Pakistan' and 'miscreants.' Around three million people of Bangladesh were killed in the Liberation War.
A fatwa decreed by fanatics outlaws the circumciser Mutalib for the blasphemy, he commits in 1971. Dramatic events follow, which change Mutalib's life forever.
