Mainkar Chipay: A thriller that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats

‘Mainkar Chipay’ is a suspense thriller and dark comedy streaming now on ZEE5 Global that keeps audiences hooked on the edge of their seats. The story of the web film revolves around one night where three men were caught in a situation that only seems to get worse as the night progresses.

The story of 50 tightly packed minutes of a sinful night in Dhaka explores a variety of themes from suspense and intense drama to black comedy.

Directed by award-winning and renowned director Abrar Athar, and starring Afran Nisho, Sariful Razz and Shamol Mawla, this film is the first of the Bangladeshi Originals launched by ZEE5 Global and it is a brilliant debut of the local content slate.

When a rich brat Sameer (played by Sariful Razz) drives down in his Prado to meet his regular dealer Shafiq (played by Shamol Mawla) in a deserted lane in the city, little does he know what the night has in store for him. An intricate plot then unravels involving the drug dealer, the drug addict and a stranger with an unknown agenda, (played by Afran Nisho) which leaves audiences guessing right until the close as to where the story will end up. As the film gets progressively intense, it ends with a perfect twist to conclude one crazy night of Mainkar Chipay.

The story also drives a clear message for the youth - to say no to drugs to avoid getting into an impossible Mainkar Chipay situation, because there are no winners.

The rise of OTT platforms has paved the way for filmmakers to experiment with newer formats, techniques of filmmaking, storylines and themes. Mainkar Chipay sets a new benchmark for young filmmaker Abrar Athar. 

Mainkar Chipay has a simple anti-drug storyline with spunky dialogues and punches that are extremely relatable and reveal an intensely dark sense of humour. 

Pop-culture references, Bangla intonations, nocturnal drama have been added the quirkiness of each person’s character. The story is neither preachy nor too dark in taste. From teen-patti to Celine Dion’s Titanic song and some cool Hrithik Roshan dance moves, the film packs it all in less than an hour.

Scripting, acting, direction and cinematography all are brilliantly crafted and executed. Several elements of surprise and twists are thrown in which are sure to keep audiences enthralled, along with spine-chilling moments of thrill or witty dramedy. 

While Sariful Razz and Shamol Mawla bring intrigue and realism to the film through their characters, it is Afran Nisho who steals the show with his devilish charm. It is difficult to clearly define his role as an antihero or a crude villain.
The movie clearly establishes Director Abrar Athar, writer Ayman Asib Shadhin and cinematographer Tahsin Rahman as a dream team pulling off this exceptional production, and that too, over just four nights of shooting. 
In summary, this is a superb suspense thriller full of brilliant performances.
