Bengali Beauty US Release Date Set for December 8
Rahsaan Noor and Mumtaheena Toya starrer, BENGALI BEAUTY – the forthcoming new film that attempts to fuse the counterculture spirit of Vietnam War movies and the magic of Yash Chopra musicals – will hit American theaters this December.
Popular radio jockey, Sarah Alam, and Ashfique Rizwan join Noor and Toya in the film along with industry veterans Pijush Bandhopadhyay, Masum Basher, GM Shahidul Alam, Naziba Basher, and Naila Azad. Noor himself has helmed direction of the film as well as ventured into Bangladeshi film production for the first time.
In partnership with AMC Theaters and Regal Cinemas, the film will open in limited release on December 8 before expanding to a wider release on December 16. Noor’s partnership with the American theater chains began after the success of his first Bangla language film, SIMANAHEEN.
Noor’s last release was the 2015 film, THE SPECTACULAR JIHAD OF TAZ RAHIM, which also starred Monica Dogra. The film was featured by Film India Worldwide at the Berlinale Film Festival in 2016.
