Short summary

Another brilliant story from one of the marvels of literature- born genius Humayun Ahmed. A group of Dhaka University friends plan to visit St. Martins, a beautiful natural coral island, situated near Cox's Bazar, where the largest natural sea beach on earth is located. The story is based on the preparation, ecstasies, agonies, frustration, hope, fun, sadness aiming at fulfilling the wish of the youth group to visit St. Martins. The story shows how they try managing the fare for the trip, how one friend finally fails to join them, how their families get involved into the preparation, how ultimate realities come forward of them. And how realistically Humayun Ahmed can plot a story as such, anybody who has read him, or watched his movies, knows better. Humayun Ahmed also has a lodge at St. Martins, so he reasonably felt eagerness to express a man's affection to the sea from his own experience. Its equally a brilliant direction from Toukir Ahmed, one of the millions of fans of Humayun. ...

    There are many films which are based on the works of famous writer Humayun Ahmed, some of them are directed by the writer himself. But this one stands out because of its simple yet heart-touching story. And the performances are brilliant, especially Riaz, Abdullah Al Mamun and Fazlur Rahman Babu's acting. Scenes featuring Riaz and his dominating father Mamun's conversations are most memorable. The songs are superb! Music director Tutul made Door Deepobashinee song more enjoyable. His composition for this Nazrul song is terrific. Director Tauqir brought out performance of a lifetime from the entire cast. Hats off to him. This is one of my most favourite films. One of the bests Bangladesh has ever produced. Give the film a try, you will love it.
