‘Kothao Keu Nei’, ‘Bohubrihi’ set to return on BTV

DL REPORTER, Dhaka
‘Kothao Keu Nei’, ‘Bohubrihi’ 
set to return on BTV

Amid the acute outbreak of novel coronavirus across the world, the general people have been advised to stay at home and maintaining social distancing to help curve the spread of this deadly virus. In Bangladesh, following the government’s directives, most of the citizens are staying home in order to avoid the transmission of coronavirus. During their stay at home, the people are utilising their time in different ways. However, a big portion of time is being spent by watching various types of entertainment contents on different platforms, including local tv channels.

In a bid to entertain the general viewers of the country during the days of their home-quarantine, Bangladesh Television (BTV) has planned to re-telecast two of once immensely popular drama serials in the history of the state-run TV channel. In this connection, ‘Kothao Keu Nei’ and ‘Bohubrihi’, two classical drama serials, are set to return on BTV once again.

Confirming the news of re-telecasting the dramas, a BTV official informed that amid the coronavirus outbreak, many people are under self-quarantine with their families. To entertain them at their home, BTV has taken the initiative to re-telecast the once hugely popular drama serials. However, the management of BTV has yet to fix the schedule of on-air time of the drama serials.

According to various media reports, the drama will go on air from today.

Late iconic playwright, writer and director Humayun Ahmed has written both the drama serials.

Produced by Barkatullah, the drama serial ‘Kothao Keu Nei’ was aired from 1992 to 1993 on BTV. During that time, the drama serial created a huge buzz among the audiences. Still today, the drama is considered to be one of the most popular dramas of all time. Baker Bhai, the protagonist in the drama, got huge popularity among the audiences from all walks of life. The character of Baker Bhai was played by celebrated actor Asaduzzaman Noor.

In this drama, Suborna Mustafa played as Moona, while Abdul Kader appeared as Bodi, Lutfor Rahman George as Majnu, Mahfuz Ahmed as Moti. Moreover, Humayun Faridi got huge response from the viewers for his role of a lawyer.

On the other hand, the family drama ‘Bohubrihi’, produced by Nawazish Ali Khan, was telecast from 1988 to 1989. The famous dialogue ‘Tui Rajakar’ delivered by a parrot in the drama earned huge popularity and grabbed everyone’s attention during the period of martial law in the country. The dialogue was also meant to be presented as an expression of hate to the anti-liberation forces. The different characters in the drama were played by Abul Hayat, Asaduzzaman Noor, Aly Zaker, Afzal Hossain, Lutfornahar Lata, Lucky Enam, Abul Khair and Afzal Sharif, among others.
