Sonai Mia was a fisherman.He lived in Monpura island. He had a little house and he always talked with animals and he fell in love with Pori. The happiness was there until their darkness came by. He was a fast swimmer.

Monpura also (Bengali: মনপুরা), is a Bengali language film set in Bangladesh. Directed by Gias Uddin Selim,. Monpura is film based on romance in a rural scenario. The debut film of Gias Uddin Selim received huge media hype even before its release. The shooting of the film was started in June 2007. It was shot in different places including Dhunot (Bogra), Kushtia and Dhaka.
The film 'Monpura' has the star casting which is not based on glamour of face but the glamour of acting. Chanchal Chowdhury plays the role of Sonai. New Actress Farhana Mili plays the role of Pori (daughter of a boatman). And the young couple are well supported by veteran actors Mamunur Rashid and Fazlur Rahman Babu.
The Shooting started on June, 2007- the shooting unit had to face some serious problems. It is the rainy season in Bangladesh. And outdoor shooting is just not suitable in this season. But the demand of 'Monpura' was to shoot in pouring rain. So the shooting unit had to face all the trouble during that period. Once the director of Monpura, Gias Uddin Selim said that, the nature has played with us during shooting. But it also has offered us with some great moment for the movie. Monpura's recent hype also suggests that all the hard work behind the movie will be paid off, perhaps.
During the making of a movie you have to make a relation with nature. nature may make you suffer, but it will also provide you with something great
