Lots of controversy is brewing up these days over the popular and rather unusually controvertial director, producer’s recent magnus opus,” Padmavti,”played by one time much talked about Badminton player of international fame Prakash Padukone’s daughter and a super hit actress Deepti Padukone and lot is written about it as well including stories making rounds in electronic channels of the country.

Those strictly opposing the screening of this extremely high budgeted film are the Rajputs being led by none other than an undisputed leader of Rajasthan Lokendra Singh Kalvi, founder of KARNI SENA who’ve surprisingly chosen Gujarat as their battle field to counter the director, producer of the film Padmavati, for a mass appeal and congregation of Rajput community demanding complete ban on the movie, making it a do or die issue. But what makes everybody surprised and astonished is the fact is why is it that obstinate and adament leader of the Rajput community Kalvi has chosen Gujarat as the nucleaus of his fight against Bhansali than Mumbai where the director/producer of the film lives and the Bollywood industry, exists.

Everyone is well aware that Gujarat state is on election mode these days and political implications of such events like huge conglomeration of Rajputs in the name of opposing a would be blockbustre film can’t be easily ruled out. On 11 th November more than over one lakh people of Rajput community under the aiges of KARNI SENA assembled in Gujarat and demanded outright ban on Padmavati and filing of the cases under anti national act against its director Bhansali. This is not the first time that Bhansali is facing the ire of the people and some of his previous films too he had initially earned the peoples’ wrath but his films like Baji Rao Mastani was a super duper hit later on.

Those opposing the screening of PADMAVATI accuse Bhansali of twisting the historical facts of 16th century and depicting the role of the most beautiful, brave and ethical legendary queen in extremely poor light as Allauddin Khilji’s beloved , thus denigrating the prestige and dignity of a well respected Rajput queen of a 16th century era, however, outrightly denied by Sanjay Leela as utterly non sense and baseless. According to the Karni Sena founder and the man behind the anti Padmavati agitation Lokendra Sinh Kalvi, the dance sequence that exhibits Queen Padmavati swaying merrily to the beats of the melodious song with her nemesis, marauding, mad with lust Alladdin khilji, the then Sultan of Delhi in the movie has amounted to a direct insult to the dignity of the Rajput Rani as well as the whole Rajput women. However, the director of the movie has denied that such a scene has ever been shot or shown.

The eminent writer Shobha De in one of her articles writes: The point is, commercial movies cannot be equated with documentaries. Movies are movies- vehicles of mass entertainment, not to be confused with an accurate recreation of an event or an era. History itself has countless interpretations.

Anyways, now the mega movie PADMAVATI is set for release and the controversy have added more glare to his movie. What happen’s next is anybody’s guess but one thing is for sure that in this whole game of opposition and criticism both, the director of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the Karni Sena founder Lokendra Sinh Kalvi are likely to win, one by earning money and fame and another politically. Public is the ultimate victim which makes things happen, ultimately.

Every third family in Uttarakhand has a jawan in Indian Army says Genl. V. K. Singh! Salutes to them

Published

The regional film industry of Uttarakhand has witnessed an upward swing in terms of production of quality big screen movies during the last five years or say a decade. It’s not that big screen multi coloured films were not produced in Uttarakhand in the past decades.

They were infact produced but unfortunately except the negligible few like Gar Jawain and Kauthig no fims could make their presence felt on a mass scale. However these films too were not the box office hit or block bustre but to an extent they did made their sizeable presence felt. But in the last five years some good and professional producers having indepth knowledge of films have definitely made a dashing and dynamic entry in Uttarakhand film industry, particularly in Garhwali cinema.

The producer of Mumbai based Snowy Mountain production movie in Garhwali SUBHERU GHAM in fact made a special significance in the UK film industry enticing massive audience in entire Uttarakhand and even in Delhi and Mumbai including at NCR Gurgaon thus covering a major part of the budget incurred in the making of this movie. It was for the first time ever that SUBHERU GHAM got the entry in the Canada Film Festival and awarded the best regional feature film felicitation which is indeed a great international recognition.

Made with a staggering budget of more than 90 lakhs and shot in the best locations of Uttarakhand Subheru Gham was the super duper hit comprising of quality cinematography, scenic beauty, best dialogue delivery, carrying a unique social message, outstanding performance of the actors and one of the best lyrics, songs and music of Uttarakhand Samrat n singing legend Narendra Singh Negi. Two three more films arrived thereafter, one being Bhule e Bhuli directed by a professional director Mr. Khanna who is unfortunately no more with us.

But the film could not make much impression in the minds of the audience or regional film lovers. As a sequel to these regional Uttarakhandi movies in Garhwali dialect a new multi starrer film MAJOR NIRALA is in the offing and is likely to bereleased in the moth of June in Uttarakhand and several metropolises of the country where the Uttarakhandies live in abundance. Based on the story, script and lyrics of the former chief minister of Uttarakhand Dr. Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank, this movie has been produced by his classical dancer daughter Aarushi Pokhariyal, Nishank.

The movie is primarily Army centric based on the life, commitment, dedication and struggle of a FAUZI who sacrifices his family interests, comforts of life and his duty as a beloved father of his children and a duty bound husband but posseses a relentless devotion to serve his mother land. The film made with a budget of nearly one crore as per the unauthentic news from sources, would be dubbed in 8 different languages in the near future and screened in variius states of the country including abroad where Uttarakhandies live in majority.

The promo of the film was released today in New Delhi in the presence ofseveral important dignitories such as the present state minister of External Affairs Genl. V. K. Singh, MP and Delhi BJP president and prominent singer Manoj Tiwari, eminent journalist and literateur Ram Bahadur Rai and Dr. Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank. The entire star cast of the film was present on this ocassion. The movie Major Nirala has been directed by Ganesh Veeran and the lead role of the hero as Major Nirala was enacted by Rajesh Malgudi. Prominent actors of Uttarakhandi origin but extremely popular in Bollywood viz. Himani Shiv Puri and Hemant Pandey are also acting in this film. Ut is for the first time that eminent Bollywood singer Kailash Kher has sung the main song of the movie in Garhwali.

The promo release function was organised in Natiinal Museum auditorium and was aytended by good number of theatre artists, film personalities, Delhites, journalists and peoole from uttarakhand as well. Dr. Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank said that the main objective of making this regional Garhwali is not to earn monetary profit but to highlight the culture of Uttarakhand and the selfless contribution of the FAUZIES who sacrifice their everything even family interests but due for the coubtry during wars.

The union state minister of external affairs lauded the contribution of our selfless army men in the service of the nation particularly the fauzies of uttarakhand and said that the film Major Nirala will contribute tremendously in boosting the morale of our Army personels nationally and will also help in generating tourism globally as the movie depicts the outstanding serene beauty of Uttarakhand which is non existent anywhere in the country. He praised the Uttarakhandi army personels for their unstinted bravery, impeccable integrity, patriotism and dedication for the nation and said that the country feels proud of them as there is one Fauzi in india Army from every third family of Uttarakhand.
