Young director Mohammad Rabbi Mridha’s film titled ‘Payer Tolay Mati Nai’ (No Ground Beneath the Feet) has already been screened at 14 prestigious film festivals in the world including Busan (Korea), Bangalore, Pune, Sri Lanka, Japan, Nepal, Austria, London, Canada, Australia. It has brought fame and honour from those places.

This time the film has received uncut clearance from the Bangladesh Film Censor Board BFCB. According to Censor Board sources, the film was seen on Monday Aug 29 and allowed to be released without any cuts. The director said that the movie will be released in the theaters of the country soon.    

National Film Award winning actress Dipanwita Martin will be seen alongside Mostafa Monwar, Priyam Archie and other notable actors in the film produced by renowned filmmaker Abu Shahed Emon.

Producer Emon said, the film titled ‘Payer Tolay Mati Nai’ is a story about the impact that climate change can have on a person's life. It narrates the life story of an ordinary man who walks through conflicts in his life involving work, family and morality and tells the story of an ambulance driver Saiful from Dhaka who experiences death on a daily basis. But poverty is his biggest challenge as his family faces shrinking resources with river erosion destroying their land in the village. 

The film depicts the struggle of a person driven to the brink due to the stress caused by poverty further aggravated by natural disasters caused by climate change. It has been screened at various festivals around the world and has garnered acclaim and accolades. Now the film is going to release in Bangladesh. I believe the audience will enjoy the film, which is well-made and well-thought-out concept.”

Regarding the context director Rabbi Mridha said, 'The film is only 95 minutes long. Here we have highlighted the changes that come in the life of a person due to the impact of climate change, he comes from the village to the city and engages in the struggle to stand up.'
