100 Days of Glory

Monpura has completed its 100 days in box office. Star Cineplex and Bolaka(Bolaka-1 & Bolaka-2) have run this movie for these 100 days consecutively. Considering the fact that, these are the busiest theatres in the capital, one can imagine the nationwide success of this movie. Even after 100 days, the movie is running around 50 theatres across the country.

After a long time, we have seen such an incidence where a main stream commercial film has made people rush towards theatres irrespective of age and class. Simultaneously, it has widened a door for Bangla film industry. There is a bunch of young directors who work in small screen and dream of working in big screen. It is the producers who stand in the way of their dreams. Either they fail to manage a producer or fail to get the amount which is needed to realize their dream. But now, the stream of audience must have inspired the young directors more than ever. It is also a good sign for the producers. And if we can get more and more films from these directors, there will be a much needed change in our industry. We may get back those days of 60's and 70's when movies were a great source of entertainment for all sorts of people.

Movies can never be made for small screen. We were about to grasp such a culture where movies were made for small screen. Small budget, small audience, small profit- That was the motto of those films. But the outstanding success of Monpura has shown that theatres are the right (and only) place for movies. Now it is up to the producers and younger directors to capitalize the opportunity to bring our movie industry back on track.

It’s Going to Break...

After two and half months of success in box office, Monpura is now on its way of breaking all the records of Bangla movie industry. Now there are more than 50 prints running all over the country. There are some theaters in capital Dhaka, which are running this movie for more than 10 weeks consecutively.

According to Gias Uddin Selim, there were some 1200 theaters in Bangladesh which has reduced to 800 at present. So the movie will run across the country for quite a long time. In the capital, Monpura will run for more than 3/4 months. It may run for more than a year across the country.

The movie which is been made on the rural scenario, has found its biggest crowed in the capital, Dhaka. This sharply growing megacity actually sucked the rural people during its growing period. Perhaps, that is a part of the reason why this busy city dwellers have come in numbers to watch the eternal love story of rural Bangladesh.
