Special TV play "Ekjon durbal Manush" will be aired on Victory Day (December 16) at 9 pm on ntv. An adaptation of a story by Muhammad Zafar Iqbal, the play has been directed by Golam Sohrab Dodul. Chanchal Chowdhury, Mamo, Saberi Alam, Avid Raihan, Dr. Enamul Haque and others have donned the key roles.
The play goes back to 1972. The story follows Zafar, a University student, who was locked up for two months by the Pakistani military during the Liberation war. Though many take him as a freedom fighter for this reason, basically, Zafar is a feeble-minded individual. He lies incessantly to fool his friends; can't help staring at good-looking girls in his department, but also feels guilty about pretending to be someone he is not.
Eventually on the death anniversary of his mother, Zafar promises not to fib, at least not on that day. That day, a woman named Rokhsana comes to meet him. Rokhsana is Shawkat's sister. Shawkat was one of the captives along with Zafar at the army camp who was killed afterwards. Rokhsana takes Zafar to her mother who wants to know about the last days of her son. Does Zafar tell her the truth?
