SHONGRAM is an Urdu language drama in which a man recounts his experiences of the Bangladesh War of Independence.

Violence

There are bloody shootings and stabbings. Bloodied dead bodies, including those of children, are shown in the aftermath of genocidal massacres. Milder violence includes sequences of torture and beatings, occasionally resulting in moderately bloody aftermath detail. There are also brief and non-graphic images of real dead bodies in grainy black-and-white documentary footage.

There are occasional scenes of sexual threat and references to sexual violence. For example, men are shown dragging away frightened women in order to rape them, and in two short sequences we hear women crying out as they are subjected to off-screen sexual violence.

Other issues include occasional moderate scenes of distress and bereavement, in addition to mild bad language ('bastard', 'saala', 'harami', 'shit').
