Chittagong - Movie Reviews

And while Chittagong falls well short of being a great film, it can't help but be an important one. And Pain keeps it honest.
What makes Chittagong particularly special is the way it depicts heroism not as muscle-flexing, chest-thumping, rhetoric-driven bravado (as in standard 'war' films) but simply as audacious acts of defiance by ordinary people in the face of grave risk and
