Director Saiful Islam Mannu’s autism-themed film Putra and two Hollywood films, Trolls and Doctor Strange, are going to be released in cinemas today.

Putra takes a critical look at the way children with autism are treated in Bangladesh, which hinders their development.

Produced by the government’s Department of Films and Publications, the film stars Ferdous, Jaya Ahsan, Fahim Muhtasin Farooque Lajim, Shewti, Dolly Zahur, Azizul Hakim, and Shormi Mala.

Meanwhile, Trolls and Doctor Strange will be released exclusively at the Star Cineplex, coinciding with their release in the United States.
