Dhaka, March 28 - Bangladesh's first prime minister Tajuddin Ahmed, who led the freedom struggle in the absence of jailed leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1971, has come alive in the first documentary made on him.

Tanvir Mokammel's 'Tajuddin Ahmed: The Unsung Hero' is a 100-minute documentary that brings to light the establishment of an emerging nation's consciousness by featuring Ahmed as a politician and an individual.

The film encompasses footage, stills and a series of interviews with Ahmed's colleagues, friends and family members.

Their matter-of-fact, unsentimental accounts enable the film to provide an authentic look at the most glorious period in the history of Bangladesh, said The Daily Times after the film's premier.

Director Mokammel said his film was designed to be used as an authentic document of the freedom movement in Bangladesh.

Tajuddin Ahmed was the finance minister after Bangladesh's emergence. Caught by the group of 'killer majors' who assassinated Mujib in August 1975, he was one of the four top leaders who were killed in jail in November that year.
