‘Muntasir’ to be released today

‘Muntasir’, a web film based on the sexual abuse of men, will be released today, marking International Men’s Day. The film has been written and directed by Iffat Jahan Momo. 

Shatabdi Wadud, Ashok Bepari, Elina Shammi, Iqbal Hossain, Sharif Siraj, Manoj Pramanik, Farhana Hamid, and others have acted in ‘Muntasir’. The music of the web film has been done by Arafatul Hasan Shanto. 

The story of ‘Muntasir’ is about the sexual abuse of men and gender discrimination. While most usually refer to women or girls being subjected to sexual harassment or assault, there is more reality than that. Men also confess to being tortured.

Asian Institute of Media and Communication Bangladesh (AIMC) has taken initiative of ‘Film Production by Women Filmmakers of Bangladesh’ as a part of their 10-year celebration. ‘Muntasir’ is the first production of this year-long programme.

‘Muntasir’ will be available on OTT platform Binge.
