Heritage Films and Communications have just released the official teaser for their film “Shyamakabya”with French subtitles for the Gange Sur Sein Film Festival. In the very first glimpse, we see Shohel Mondol as Azad, Neelanjona Neela as Shyama, and Shahadat Hossain as the old Jamindar on the screen, shrouded in mystery and poetry.
The 25 seconds teaser of Shyamakabya commences with a recitation of the following verse: “I was ever a fighter, so—one fight more, The best and the last!” by Robert Browning. This poignant moment occurs during a pivotal scene in the film where Azad points a revolver at Shyama while reciting this poetry, adding an additional layer of poetic melancholy and enigma. The teaser concludes with an enigmatic laughter.
