The lead character Naima, portrayed by Novera Rahman, is the capricious elder daughter of a rickshaw-puller. Naima was a free and independent girl who grew up in a village of Bangladesh with her life being as colorful as the ‘rangolis’ she used to make. The earnings Naima made by drawing ‘rangolis’ was never enough for her and her family. However, this never stopped Naima from making ‘rangolis’ of various mixtures and collaborations of colors which so beautifully complimented one another. One day she steps out of her house with her eyes filled with dreams. She starts facing different twists and turns in her life while chasing her dream. These turns and twist gave Naima new experiences and gathering all these experiences a brave Rickshaw girl is born.
The film ‘Rickshaw Girl’ maintains international standard and Eric James Adams has produced it. Faridur Reza Sagor and Ziauddin Adil are the joint executive producers of the film. Naseef Faruque Amin and Sharbari Zohra Ahmed are the screenplay writers of the film.
