New drama serial "Sakin Sarisuri", written by Brindabon Das and directed by Salauddin Lavlu goes on air tonight. The serial will be aired every Saturday and Sunday at 7:50 pm on Channel i.
The premier was held recently at Pubail where the serial is shot. The director, playwright, cast and technicians celebrated the occasion with the locals and watched the pilot episode with them.
The plot centres on a village called Sarisuri. Interestingly enough, the residents are all thieves. The village is home to Muslims, Hindus and Christians who live in harmony, respecting and celebrating each other's creed and festivals. The village is virtually isolated from neighbouring areas for its natives' reputation of being swindlers. The local administration is well aware of the villagers' "profession" but does not take severe legal actions, as election is close.
The serial advances with a conflict among the villagers when the daughter of the local 'godfather' falls for a young thief.
The cast features Mamunur Rashid, Wahida Mallik Jolly, Masum Aziz, Nazmul Huda Bachchu, Salauddin Lavlu, Azizul Hakim, Golam Farida Chhanda, Chanchal Chowdhury, Mosharraf Karim and Rawnak Hasan in major roles.
"An important aspect of the serial is solidarity among people in a multi-religious community. We often witness shameless use of religion to create divide among people in our country and elsewhere. This issue has to be addressed,” said Lavlu.
The director is optimistic that like his previous productions “Rong-er Manush,” “Bhob-er Haat” and “Ghar Kutum”, “Sakin Sharisuri” will also be able generate interest among a wider audience.
