For the first time, a smartphone has been used to film a professional production in Bangladesh.
Shafayet Mansoor Rana has directed ‘Ferar Gaan’. The short film was released on Wednesday on iflix and the entire film has been shot by Samsung Galaxy S10+, said a press release.
The story revolves around Rubab Khan (Jon Kabir) who is a famous star of the country. His music is adored by everyone and he has millions of fans. However, he is very ego-centric and looks down upon people. During a concert, a super fan (Sayeed Zaman Shawon) of his manages to make his way to the backstage where he asks for a selfie. In response, Rubab behaves rudely with him to the point when the fan has to be thrown out by his guards.
The next morning, the famous star finds out that he has lost his gifted voice. His voice was ruined. He tries everything to find out the reason but to no avail. He started to lose everything, his career, his fans and even his girlfriend (Azmeri Asha). Realisation struck him and he sets out to find the fan whom he had mistreated.
The entire film was recorded with Samsung Galaxy S10+ which features three rear professional grade cameras consisting of a 12MP wide lens, 12MP telephoto lens, and 16MP Ultra-Wide lens which records 4000 pixel horizontally video very easily.
