Produced by Charuniram Theatre, the play has been directed by Gazi Rakayet.

The play is about the last independent Nawab of Bengal, Siraj-ud-Daulah and his philosophy of the war. The alternative presentation of the historic Palashi event will be delivered through the play.

Besides, a few words in the play like ‘Palashi’, ‘Siraj’ ‘Imperialism’ will provide food for new thought.
