With an aim to provide quality entertainment, Desh TV is introducing a new programme, titled "Rang Mistiri Show," scheduled to begin from the fifth day of Eid-ul-Fitr. The programme will feature single-episode TV plays directed by talented, up and coming directors. 'Rang Mistiri' is an organisation of emerging film and TV play directors, most of whom are or have been students of the Faculty of Fine Arts (FFA), Dhaka University. The organisation was founded in 2007. Animesh Aich, Matia Banu Shuku, Mezbaur Rahman Sumon, Tokon Thakur, Shibu Kumar Shil and Shah Newaz Kakoli are among the founding members of the group."In 2007 we arranged a four day festival, titled 'Rangmistiri Utshob' at FFA premises. At the event, 12 productions by upcoming directors were screened," said director Animesh Aich, one of the founding members. Aich has attained much acclaim for his works, in particular the tele-film "Garam Bhat Othoba Nichhak Bhut-er Galpo". "The event received a positive response; the turnout was surprising. It was basically the success of that event which inspired us to move forward," Aich added.
