From now on, the film will be screened at 1:10pm, 5pm and 7:30pm from Friday to Thursday, according to the sources at the Star Cineplex.
Earlier, the teaser of the film was released online on December 5.
‘Janmabhumi’, a production of Bengal Multimedia Limited, was produced by RTV Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Syed Ashik Rahman.
A good number of actors, actresses, including Rawnak Hasan, Saira Aktar Jahan, Sangeeta Chowdhury, Aungkon Chakma, Jainal Jack, Pamela Kechter, Nasir Uddin, performed in different roles of the movie.
Director Proshoon Rahmaan said the story of the ‘Janmabhumi’ has been made based on lives of Rohingya refugees who fled from Rakhine State of Myanmar to Kutupalong camp of Cox's Bazar district.
When the Myanmar government launched a violent military crackdown on Rohingyas in August of 2017, around 11 lakh Rohingyas left their birthland and entered Bangladesh to save lives.
He said more than 65,000 of them were pregnant and many of them were raped by the Myanmar Army.
The government of Bangladesh has made a refugee camp in Kutupalong for their shelter. They now have only one dream and it is to return to their birthland.
Film Producer Syed Ashiq Rahman said RTV is continuously broadcasting news, reports and documentaries on persecuted Rohingyas.
“We believe that if the movie is screened worldwide, it will create public opinion in favour of the Rohingyas.
