Karagar Part 1 Review: Story, Performance & Analysis

The series started with a scene at Akashnagar Kendriyo Karagar. Senior officer Humayun Kabir is unhappy with prison officer Mushtaq Ahmed(Intekhab Dinar) for two reasons. First, a woman entered the prison which was leaked by someone. Second, an unknown prisoner was found in a cell which is not operational for a long time.

Humayun Kabir had so many questions like who was the woman, how did she enter the prison, and whom did he come to meet in the prison? But Mushtaq had no answers for all these and we all also don’t have. Only one word from him was sorry which Humayun Kabir was not ready to hear.

The biggest problem arrived with the entry of a mysterious convict (Chanchal Chowdhury) at cell no 145 who presents himself as a dumb person but has the ability to tell many secrets about people watching their eyes. He also told that he had killed Mir Zafar but nobody was ready to believe his words.

Most of the people present there were unable to understand the sign language the mysterious convict was using so they took the help of an interpreter (Tasnia Fareen). Mushtaq’s son is in jail due to his connection with criminals.

What kind of problems the concerned authority will face due to that mysterious convict? How and when did he arrive at this prison? Is he dumb or he is acting to be dumb?

Syed Ahmed Shawki and Chanchal Chowdhury’s successful collaboration continues with Karagar part 1. We have earlier seen this director-actor combination in Taqdeer web series and they have successfully recreated their magic in this series too.

Though the start was a little bit slow, the gripping narrative in the later episodes and the twist in the last episode will keep you hooked to your seats. Many questions remained unanswered; elaborating on a few would have given more clarity. The climax hinted toward a more engaging Karagar Part 2 which we may get soon. Chanchal Chowdhury delivered a highly impressive performance in Karagar part 1, though he didn’t utter a single word until the last episode.

Intekhab Dinar is equally effective in his role as Prison Officer Mushtaq Ahmed and Tasnia Fareen has also done a fantastic job. The background score by Ruslan Rehman and editing by Saleh Sobhan Auneem deserves mention along with DOP Barkat Hossain Polash.

Syed Ahmed Shawki deserves full credit for this brilliant storytelling and smart execution. It is good to see that Syed Ahmed Shawki and Chanchal Chowdhury’s collaboration is creating on-screen magic every time.

Final Words

Karagar Part 1 is a mystery thriller that has power-packed performances of Chanchal Chowdhury & Intekhab Dinar and the brilliant direction of Syed Ahmed Shawki.
