Bangladesh vs India Football (Soccer) Match in Jaago (2009) Bengali Movie with music by Arnob

Jaago 2009 Bengali Movie Poster

Shot on locations in Dhaka and Cox Bazar, Bangladesh, Jaago is a movie sure to appeal to soccer fans on both sides of the Bengal border. With a tag-line of "Dare to Dream", Jago pits the Azad Boys soccer team from Comilla against the powerful Indian football team from the state of Tripura, India. According to the reports, there are two matches in the film. It is probably not hard to guess that the Azad Boys will lose the first, and come back and beat the crap out of the Tripura team in the second match.

One of the big draws (no pun intended) of the film will surely be Bengali film songs composed and performed by the great contemporary Bengali singer-songwriter Arnob Sayan Chowdhury. Other Bengali movie songs in Jaago have been performed by acclaimed Bangladesh playback artists Kumar Bishwajit, Bappa Majumdar, Milon Mahmud, Ishtiaque Hossain, Johad, Shrabonti Ali, Kona and Adit. Arnob was here in Washington DC a couple of years ago to start off the Arnob and friends world tour, and Washington Bangla Radio was proudly present in the concert and posted an exclusive video coverage here.

Jaago is being billed as the first sports (football) based patriotic film in Bangladesh. Visit the web-sites listed below for more information.
