The father of the nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was brutally killed on August 15, 1975, along with his family. This day is regarded as the most agonizing in Bangladesh's history. What had really transpired in the few hours following that murder? How did the corpse get from house number 32 in Dhaka to Tungipara? How was the funeral handled? The event served as the basis for the movie "570."

Despite having finished filming three years ago, the censor board approved the movie's February 11 release of a few scenes. Ashraf Shishir, the director, has confirmed this.

According to the producer, the events of the 36 hours following Bangabandhu's assassination and his burial served as the basis for the film "570." After a wait of nearly six months, the film was officially approved. Prior to this, the film was submitted in July of last year to the Censor Board.

Bappi Chowdhury, a popular actor in Bangladesh, plays an army soldier who is tasked with carrying Bangabandhu's body in the film. In essence, a helicopter carrying Bangabandhu's bloody corpse was flown from Dhaka to Tungipara while he was there.

Regarding the film, Bappi Chowdhury stated that the director told him the whole tale, which spanned roughly four hours. That made him cry vehemently.

The actor claims that the current circumstances are truly intolerable. Additionally, the film's narration and every character are drawn directly from the original tale. For all of which the Bangabandhu Memorial Trust has not received a letter of objection.

As "570," Bappi Chowdhury was the main actor. It also features performances by the late Masum Aziz, Swadhin Khosru, Kazi Raju, Sumana Soma, Sujat Shimul, Elina Shammi, and other actors. Young performers included Simreen Lubaba, Tasin, Tazeem, Taif, Nirjhar Bishal, and others.
