The Cloud Boat (Kalo Megher Vela) is a Bangla short film directed by Mrittika Goon and an
adaptation of poet Nirmalendu Goon&amp;amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s novel of the same title Protagonist Dukhu: a child
who lost his father in his early age. The movie follows the struggles of Dhuku, a child who
lives at a railway station. Dukhu&amp;amp;amp;amp;rsquo;s life in a railway station of Dhaka is a continuity of
struggle: physical and emotional. In order to escape the abuse of his stepfather, Dhuku flees
the city, leaving behind his beloved mother. He disguises himself as an orphan and begins
working for a family in a remote village. There he encounters a sage who teaches him that
the path to freedom is blocked by emotional attachments - in order to listen to the call of
the soul, one must release themselves from the bondage of love. Dukhu is inspired by the
sage's words and begins a journey into the unknown, beyond all things material and away
from the love for his own mother.
