Upcoming Bangladeshi film “Poramon 2”, starring Siam Ahmed and Pujja Cherry, will have its premiere at the Marche du Film of the Cannes Film Festival this year. The opening screening will take place on March 13 as part of the film market of the business counterpart of the festival. Producers Jaaz Multimedia made the announcement on their Facebook page on Tuesday.
For the international screening, the English title of the film has been set as “Hell and Heaven”. Jaaz also shared four English posters of the film on the social media platform.
Marche du Film is the commercial platform of Cannes, where any producer can pay a fee to screen their films for industry professionals and audience.
“Poramon 2” is the sequel of the 2013 film “Poramon” that starred Mahia Mahi and Saimon Sadiq. It has been directed by newcomer Raihan Rafi, and features the big screen debut of popular TV actor Siam Ahmed. Pujja Cherry, who has done a number of films as a child actor, will also be seen in the lead role for the first time. Not much else is known about the film, including its support cast or plot, except for the fact that it may touch on religious issues, judging by the posters. Deloar Hosen Dil has written the story and screenplay for the film, and Emon Shaha has directed music.
Meanwhile, Jaaz Multimedia has already announced another film with the trio of Rafi, Siam and Pujja. The film, titled “Dohon”, is scheduled to begin principal photography next month. Jaaz also hosted a quiz contest for its Facebook fans earlier this month asking them to guess another actress who will play a central role in the film, with prize money of 10,000 taka for the correct guesser.
