It is really a great news that long cherished cinema ‘Monpura’ is now on different cinema complex. The very beginning of the show has seen a spiraling queue in front of the cinema halls. Without thinking twice we can say that it has been able to reach our expectation. Last Saturday I had an opportunity to enjoy the movie in Chittagong Almas cinema complex though hundreds of others had to return not being able to manage a ticket. However the very start of the movie fascinated me. Two main characters Sonai (Chonchol Chowdhury) and Pari (Mili) were spontaneous in their character. Really they have worked hard to make adjustment with rustic environment. Thanks to Giasuddin Selim who has tried his best to articulate all the matter like a consummate maestro. Also he may get a vote of thanks to be brave enough to release the cinema in the hall rather than selling it to a TV channel. Monpura already has got the fame for its songs released in Audio. So when the audience were listening to their favourite songs ‘Nithua pathare’, ‘Sonaro palonke sue’ or ‘Sonar moina pakhi’ they started to make chorus from every nook and corner of the hall. But due to lack of a cinema hall like Star cine complex we have suffered most for lack of good sound and nice environment. Last few years we are noticing a changing trend against the movies full with vulgarism. We expect more films like Monpura. In fine, we the audience should promote those films going to cinema hall and for this reason Let’s go Monpura.
