Maverick television host Hanif Sanket and his popular magazine programme 'Ittyadi' pioneered investigative and thought provoking documentaries on prolific personalities from different strata of society. Keeping up with this trend, the latest episode of 'Ittyadi' will broadcast a documentary on renowned photojournalist M.A. Taher. Taher's unconventional approach to photography and elaborate works on different subjects for more than three decades have made him a familiar name among the intelligentsia of the country. 'Ittyadi' will zoom on this and much more.
Month of January marks the birth anniversary of poet Jasimuddin who is also known as the rural poet. To pay tribute to this legendary poet, the shooting of this episode of 'Ittyadi' is done in front of the ancestral home of the poet in Faridpur. Defying biting cold, 50000 people attend the shooting session to get mesmerized with Hanif Sanket's hosting prowess and 'Ittyadi's' variety of skits and regular segments. This episode of 'Ittyadi' contains an inspirational documentary on Brahmonbaria's artist Helal Mia and his family. All the seven members of his family are blind. Besides there is a documentary on Spain's Barcelona. Pantho Kanai has sung a famous number by Jasimuddin and there is also a dance number amalgamating three famous songs by the poet. Music compositions are done by Mehdi. The invited guest segment has been glorified by artists: Fakir Alamgir and Zohir Alim. The usual mama-vagne, nani-nati and other comedy skits will provide ample food for thoughts to the viewers. The stage design and art direction of 'Ittyadi' is done by Mukimul Anwar Mukim. Sponsored by Keya Cosmetics Limited, the show will go on air on 29 January after 8pm news on BTV and BTV World.
