The director who was also part of the Cannes hit Matir Moyna’s team said to this correspondent that even if one person returns from extremist path after watching the film, it would be successful. But if none returns then the film would be a failure. He further added that the film would outline a terrorist’s strategy to draw in economically frustrated youth.
