Shuklapakkha / Sunerah-Roshan
It would be hard to imagine the ending of this movie by watching the beginning. A twist of suspense layered on the scene until the moment of the mystery unfolded. The director is none other than Vicky Jahed. This young revolutionary filmmaker is going to surprise the fans again in the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha.
The film stars Ziaul Roshan in the lead role. Sunerah Binte Kamal, the actress famous for No-Dorai (2019) has starred in this film. Khairul Bashar and Farooq Ahmed are also included among the cast of the web film awaiting release in Charki.

There will be contemporary competition and various inconsistencies in the context. Unlike the first romantic-comedy film, this film will be a serious one of a completely different set where a combination of suspense and thrill can be found. The shooting of this film, produced by Alpha-Eye, was completed on June 22.
Prem-Pritir Bondhon / Apu-Joy

The cast of the film is Misha Saudagar, Ashiq Chowdhury, Aman Reza, Tahmina Mau, Rezmin Setu, LR Khan Simanta, Haider Ali, Harun Kininger, and Jadu Azad.
Psycho / Puja-Roshan
Psycho is going to be the seventh movie starring the popular star Puja Cheri, the rising young star. Here she will be seen in the role of a minister's daughter, who will be kidnapped. Ziaul Roshan will act opposite her. Roshan will be seen in double roles, one of which is a police officer and another one is a psycho in the movie. The character will be quite challenging for Roshan as a new actor.
The crime genre movie is directed by Ananya Mamun. The film is produced by two filmmaking companies - RBS Entertainment and Celebrity Productions.
Border / Sanju-Adhora
Border is the story of the eventful lives of people in a border area of Bangladesh. The social life, politics, smuggling, drug aggression, and other illegal trade have come up here. The main idea of the film’s storyline was originated by the National Film Award-winning writer and journalist Sudipta Saeed Khan.
Based on the story, Asad Zaman created the screenplay and dialogue of the movie. Saikat Nasir, the director of the movie, acted as the co-playwright with Zaman. Border's production house was “Maximum Entertainment”.

The film, which was waiting to be released on Valentine's Day 2020, is finally coming to the theaters on Eid-ul-Adha two years after. This film with a love triangle is based on the sensational incident of 2019 Rifat-Minni-Nayan. Shahjahan Sourav co-wrote the screenplay with Rayhan Rafi who directed the film.
Vidya Sinha Mim, Yash Rohan, Shariful Raj, and Rashed Mamun Apu will be seen playing the main characters in the film. Music was directed by Emon Chowdhury and Naved Parvez. The teaser song of the movie had a positive effect on the audience. The film is being released under the banner of Live Technologies.
Pap-Punno - World TV premiere
Like Monpura, Swapnajal, and Gunin, Gias Uddin Selim's Pap-Punno also gained a good reputation as soon as it was released. This is the last part of Selim's Love Trilogy, the first two of which were Monpura and Swapnajal.
The movie was released in 20 theaters simultaneously on May 20 this year. Viewers will be able to watch this star-studded film produced and presented by Impress Telefilm on the TV screen this time. The film will be shown on Channel I on the second day of Eid from 10:15 am.
Two currently busy actors Chanchal Chowdhury and Siam Ahmed starred in two important roles in the cinema. The film also stars Fazlur Rahman Babu, Afsana Mimi, Mamunur Rashid, Monir Khan Shimul, Gausul Alam Shaon, Farzana Chumki, and Shahnaz Sumi.
Live / Simon-Mahi
Shooting of this movie started in January 2021 under Bhuighar Production House. Under the direction of Live Team Chief Shamim Ahmed Rony, the shooting was completed within a year, and the editing was begun. Selim Khan produced the film under the banner of his Shapla Media.
Simon Sadik, National Film Award winner for Best Actor, will be seen in the role of a singer in this movie. The strange poster of the film has given a very different impression to the viewers, which was absent in the poster of Mahir's previous films. After getting the censor clearance, the promotion of the film is going on now. It is time to see whether the movie can win the hearts of movie lovers.
These Bengali movies set to be released in the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha 2022 will undoubtedly increase the joy of Eid. However, due to the lack of big-budget and aspiring superstar movies, the cinema hall authorities are worried. The movies released last Eid-ul-Fitr were able to bring the lost vibe back to the theaters of Bangladesh after overcoming the impact of the Corona epidemic. The Bengali cinephiles will have to wait till Eid-ul-Azha to see if these cinemas can continue that status.
