Mukti (Liberation) is a film which deals with a group of freedom fighters hiding from the Pakistanarmy during the Bangladeshliberation war of 1971.
Two of the fighters, Haripada and Taslima were attacked by soldiers during an expedition to gather food. While Taslima sustained a bullet injury, Haripada nearly drowned and is running a fever.
At the hideout, two of the fighters send a boy to find a doctor, fully aware of the futility of the exercise. Haripada, in a fit of delirium, becomes excited claiming to hear the footsteps of the doctor coming.
The film is shot in black and white, and makes use of symbolism and a jarring soundscape. The dialogues are in a rural eastern dialect of Bengali.
