Former NASA scientist and debutant director Bedabrata Pain's Chittagong has been receiving rave reviews even before its release.
The film is based on a a little-known incident in the 1930s British-occupied India. A handful of untrained teenage boys and girls, led by a school teacher, handed the British their first military defeat.
Chittagong is the story of the youngest and the most unlikely participant – a frail and diffident 14 old teenager, Jhunku Roy.
It portrays an incredible journey of a teenager, who battles nagging self-doubts and reluctance on one hand, and a formidable enemy on the other, to achieve an impossible triumph.
The film stars Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Raj Kumar, Vega Tamotia, Jaideep Ahlawat, Barry John, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Vishal Vijay, Delzad Hiwale, Vijay Varma, Sauraseni Maitra, Chaiti Ghosh, Anurag Arora, Alexx O'Nell and Tanaji Dasgupta.
