‘Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’ to be aired on TV channels today

The docudrama ‘Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’, will be aired on different television channels today, marking the Homecoming Day of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Based on the life of Sheikh Hasina, the eldest daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujbur Rahman, the docudrama is an ambitious attempt to analyse and document the persona of the iconic political figure of the third world.

The docudrama opens with the heinous assassination of her father in 1975, and subsequently unfolds her family’s change in fortune and the dramatic rise in power again. It depicts the story of a daughter’s struggles, sorrows and triumphs.

The 70-minute docudrama is the outcome of an extensive and five-year-long collaborative effort made by the Centre for Research and Information (CRI) and Applebox Films.

Produced by Radwan Mujib Siddiq and Nasrul Hamid on behalf of the CRI, the film was directed by Applebox Films founder Rezaur Rahman Khan Piplu, with Sadik Ahmed as cinematographer, Navnita Sen as editor, and Debojyoti Mishra as the music director.

In the film, Sheikh Hasina and her younger sister Sheikh Rehana talked about the lifestyle of Sheikh Hasina after the heinous assassination of their father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujbur Rahman in 1975.

 It may be mentioned that, the docudrama was released on November 16 in 2018.
