His passionate poetry calling for freedom and equality made him the balladeer of the people. His vibrant personality and adventurous life is legendary. The unforgettable poetry and songs of Kazi Nazrul Islam remain some of the most powerful creations of Bengali literature.

This is the story of a poet of the people, raising his voice for the rights of the poor. Facing imprisonment and persecution, he inspired people to rise against the injustices of colonial rule. Then he became a popular singer, lyricist and music director whose records were bestsellers.

The tragedy of Kazi Nazrul Islam is that one day, this vibrant voice fell silent and then the poet never spoke again.
