Nirab and Mithila's duo starrer film 'Omanush,' directed by Anonno Mamun, was released on Friday in 41 theatres across the country. ‘Omanush’ has been at the centrepoint of discussion from the beginning because of the storyline of the movie, as the film is based on actual facts and reality. The film also became the talk of the town as popular actress Rafiat Rashid Mithila's first silver screen project. Furthermore, prior to its release, the varied promotional activities piqued viewers' excitement in watching the film. Director Anonno Mamun said, “I took an attempt to go beyond the boundaries of everything in the movie. Choosing the story from that thought, I started working after facing many challenges. Since the whole shooting took place in the jungle, the experience has been very different than usual.” He added, “The nature of cinema has changed all over the world and our audience demands better. We have tried to meet that expectation, and thanks to all the actors and crew who worked on it. Everyone worked hard to help me finish the film, now waiting to see the response of the audience.” Regarding the movie, actor Nirab Hossain said, "An artist always wants to take a challenge about the character and I got to do the same in this movie. This is the first time I have played the role of a robber, for which I have had to take preparation for a long time. All these hardships are for a good reason, so there will be expectations towards the audience as we want them to watch and criticize us, and also give us more encouragement.” Despite being the lead actress of 'Omanush,' Mithila was not present at any publicity and press conference for the movie. However, she spoke about the film through a video message, saying: "My first film 'Omanush' is being released. I apologize for not being present at the premiere, as I am residing far away from the country at this moment - but I urge you all to come and watch the movie on June 16 and let us know your feedback.” Mithila further said, "The story of this movie is different from the story of our traditional films. The story of a band of robbers in the jungle, which was very adventurous.” Actress Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed said, “This film is being released as my new venture for the silver screen after a long period of time. I'm a little scared, but I feel absolutely lucky to have been able to do the robber character in this movie. Although it was very difficult to develop such a character, everyone on the team gave me great encouragement. I have seen a lot of interest from the audience and I urge everyone to come to the hall and watch the film.” The shooting of 'Omanush' started in 2021. After completing the work in Bandarban in the beginning, the shooting ended in Dhaka in mid-August after shooting in different parts of the country including Rangamati, Sylhet, Narayanganj and Bhaluka. Misha Saudagar, Shahiduzzaman Selim, Rashed Mamun Apu, Don and many others have also acted in the movie. Also read: Mithila, Srijit tie the knot
