This historical epic tells the story of young Henry V after becoming the King of England in the 15th century. Prince Hal (Timothée Chalamet) was a reluctant heir to the throne and was negligent of his duties, but circumstances made him be crowned as King Henry V and so he had to forcefully embrace the life he wanted to break free from so badly.
Directed by David Michôd, The King (2019) is a Shakespeare-inspired historical drama. Alongside previously Oscar-nominated actor Timothée Chalamet in the lead role, Joel Edgerton and Robert Pattinson also star in the film. The battle scenes are sensational, the performances by all actors and actresses are strong and the cinematography is impressive. Overall, this Netflix Original is a great watch!
One of the most anticipated films of 2019, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman comes to Netflix on November 26th.
This film is a fantastic reunion of legendary actors like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. This crime drama is another ‘hitman story’ which this trio is already famously known for. The critics are already calling it a masterpiece by Scorsese and some are even calling it his best work.
The rave reviews, the never-ending suspense, the A graded cast and Martin Scorsese’s brilliance make this film a must-watch for every film enthusiast all around the world.
The Farewell (Bié Gàosù Tā) is director Lulu Wang’s big break. This is the story of a lovely Chinese family living far apart from each other. This comedy-drama is a breath of fresh air otherwise surrounding all the tough dark thrillers around in 2019.
Chinese culture and philosophy are reflected throughout the film. The story is packed with all shades of human emotions and takes us a step closer to our family roots. This is one simple but powerful film.
Even though the film was initially released in January, it was made legally available in Bangladesh in November.
From the director of Dangal (2016) and Chillar Party (2011), comes Chhichhore. Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari has always been adding new flavors to Bollywood by breaking the Bollywood stereotype! This time is no different.
Chhichhore is a film about a group of friends from university. This heartfelt film is immensely relatable to every student of this sub-continent. The film stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor and many more renowned faces.
If you are a Bangladeshi and are relatively active on social media, you probably have heard about the beautiful melancholic song Jontrona by Mohon Sharif from the Bangla film “No Dorai” (Dare to Surf) which will be released on November 29th
The trailer of the film is already critically acclaimed. The locations, camera work and colour palette as seen in the music video are highly appraised as well. The film is directed by Taneem Rahman Angshu and is shot by cinematographer Suman Sarker.
From a small beach town in Cox’s Bazar, Ayesha dares to break social stigma, boundaries, orthodoxy and becomes the first female surfer of Bangladesh. This film is a glance into the rural life and illustrates the hardship of empowering the women in Bangladesh as well.
2019 has been a good year for movies so far. Movies like The King, The Farewell and Chhichhore have contributed enough to make 2019 glorious. Fingers crossed for The Irishman and No Dorai. Hopefully they will at least be as good as we have predicted!
