A scene from Shobuj Velvet.

What's on TV this Eid?

Salman Rob

After a month of fasting, there are a very few things that we look forward to on Eid, besides hanging out with friends outside campus and collecting money from the elders! And for many of us, 'full on' relaxing is the way to celebrate the Eid holidays with unlimited food around. Well, why not watch something new while munching on the food? Here is a list of programmes you can watch on TV this Eid, that we, at the Star Campus, also find interesting.

A scene from the film, A separation.

'Gabbu Ebong Professor Rifat' sounds entertaining, especially for the young people who would prefer to relax at home. Directed by Morshedul Islam, the film features Ali Zaker, Raisul Islam and many other actors. The story shows the relationship between the two personalities, Gabbu and the professor and many more entertaining moments that come along. The short film will be telecasted on the fourth day of Eid at 3:35 pm on Channel 9. So no matter where you are, in the city or at the local village market place, this is a story you might want to check out.

If you are looking for musical shows, Musical Caravan can be a good show for the day. Featuring young musicians like Topu, Shafiq Tuhin, Liza, Taushik and Shahajan Shohag, the show will be telecasted on Diganta Television at 6:00 pm on the second day of Eid.

To all the young uprising musicians, this will be a good show for you to keep your eyes on.

'Shobuj Velvet', a story by the famous writer Dr Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, will be telecast on NTV at 11.30 pm on the day of Eid. The story is about a girl who lives in New York and comes back to Bangladesh on a visit. She finds it a bit hard to adjust with the social crowd in the rural areas, but she, eventually, finds her way to settle in. As her father was a worker on a train station, coming back to Dhaka on a train reminds her of him and she gets nostalgic. While coming back she meets a man on the train wearing a pair of green velvet pants, and in no time they start talking. What happens next? Watch to find out!

'Lobh' is another Eid day special from NTV. It will be telecasted on the Eid Day at 8:15 pm. It is about a man who spends a long holiday with his wife who he had just gotten married to and gets into trouble from work for staying away for so long. Being ashamed of the fact that he is fired and having to make it up to his boss-- he hides everything from his wife. This will be another fun and intense watch from the pack of Eid shows.

To finish off the long waited holiday, 'A Separation' is a movie that will keep you glued to the television screen! A totally different genre for the Bangladesh viewers, 'A Separation' is based on an Irani family where the wife wants to leave to a foreign country with her daughter but the husband could not agree to the decision of leaving as his father is a patient of Alzheimer's disease and can not be moved. The story has a lot of emotions and portrays the elements that make build or break family ties. For those young and aspiring filmmakers, 'A Separation' is a super pick. Story by Asgar Farhid, the film will be telecasted on Diganta Television on the sixth day of Eid at 3:06 pm.

This Eid, if you want to delve into the lethargy of your humble bed and munch on Eid goodies, these shows are bound to keep you entertained and help you spend a relaxing yet exciting Eid. On a different note, have a wonderful Eid!
