The movie is based on true events and follows the story of two football teams from different eras: the legendary Shadhin Bangla Football Team and a similar team from the present.
The trailer echoes the movie’s main theme: “Be it a fighter or a player, never give up, whether it is a playground or a battlefield, fight till the end and ensure your victory”.
The voice-over and cinematography in the trailer will have viewers holding their breath. Transitions between scenes of the liberation war and that of the football sequences were smooth and captivating. A particularly beautiful shot from the trailer is where Sariful Razz is bicycle-kicking a football. Unfortunately, while the trailer was thoroughly entertaining, the colour gradient for the film felt a little too saturated.
The movie is based on a real-life football team that was formed in June 1971. The Shadhin Bangla Football Team played a total of 16 matches in different areas, raising around BDT 5 lakh, which was donated to help fund the liberation war.
