Chittagong is an uplifting action-drama, a thriller which has its historical significance that is woven craftily into a story and creatively put forth in the audio visual medium through this film.
It is made more compelling by the fact that it is true.
In a little known incident in the 1930s British occupied India, a handful of untrained teenage boys and girls, led by a school teacher, handed the British their first military defeat.
Set against this backdrop, Chittagong is the story of the youngest and the most unlikely participant – a frail and diffident 14 old teenager, Jhunku Roy.
It portrays an incredible journey of a teenager, who battles nagging self-doubts and reluctance on one hand, and a formidable enemy on the other, to achieve an impossible triumph.
