Aarong presents ‘Ei Shomoyer Golpo', a two-part short film
Aarong presents ‘Ei Shomoyer Golpo’, a two-part short film about a family’s ability to adapt in the face of adversity during this unprecedented pandemic. It is a reflection of humanity’s innate capacity to overcome challenges against all odds and also a realisation of our interconnectedness in our march towards rebuilding our future.
A modern-day couple, Faisal and Raha are busy with their careers and are in the midst of planning the fifth birthday of their daughter, Arya. Their plans suddenly take a turn with the declaration of a lockdown in the country and the looming threat of the coronavirus.
The couple quickly tries to adapt to the uncertain times and adapt to a ‘new normal’ where families are forced to adjust to a new way of life.
The first part was released on Aarong’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on Friday 24th July, 2020. The second part was released before Eid-ul-Adha on Thursday 30th July 2020.
Directed by Redoan Rony, ‘Ei Somoyer Golpo’ stars Aparna Ghosh, F S Nayeem and child-artist Arya. All wardrobe used is by Aarong.
When asked why Aarong made the film, Tamara Hasan Abed, Managing Director of BRAC Enterprises said, “We thought, being a popular brand, how can we use Aarong’s platform to create awareness among people about how to keep their families safe during this pandemic. That's why we took the initiative to make this short film 'Ei Shomoyer Golpo'."
