Produced and directed by Pradip Ghosh, the government-granted movie is the adoption of noted writer Selina Hossain’s novel of the same title Bhalobasa Pritilata. The film depicts the historical event of anti-British protests in Chittagong in 1932. Artist Kanak Aditya is the costume designer, while Bappa Mazumder is the music director of the film.

Born in Chattogram in 1911, Pritilata was an anti-British revolutionary in the then East Bengal, now Bangladesh. In early 1930s, Pritilata joined Mastarda Surya Sen’s armed resistance movement.
Later in 1932, she successfully led a team to attack the Pahartali European Club in Chattogram. However, when trapped by the English on the fateful night, she committed suicide by swallowing Cyanide, ending her short endeavor in fighting for the country’s freedom at the age of 21.
