The most controvertial Magnum opus directed by the controvertial directer Sanjay Leela Bhansali having been banned in two states viz Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat where the government of BJP prevails, is all set for release in Britain as the British Board of Film Classification has given the film a go ahead and sources reveal that the date of release might be 1st of December, 2017.

The movie was slated for an all India release on 1st of December earlier but due to the enhanced controversy, media hype and threats of dire consequences to the director as well as the actors of the historical film the schedule of release was with held infinitely, as of now. The film made with the humongous budget of 180 crores is in controversy since the beginning as the Karni Sena headed by the the direct decendent of legendary Padmavat family, as claimed by him, Lokendra Singh Kalvi raised serious objections and organised protests all over the country including Rajasthan and Gujarat compounded with a press conference at the Press Club of India.

The matter became worse when some leaders of the Rajput Community in Haryana and other parts of the country issued fatwas of granting 10 crores to the one who would behead the director of the film sending shock waves all around. While there are charges and counter charges by the Karni Sena and various Rajput outfits and the makers of the film outrightly denying, putting the legendary Rajput queen in poor light, the protestors are hardly to relent saying that they will not agree in less than the movie going into dustbin. The director of the movie Bhansali has recently arranged the show for some selected senior journalists and writers and the editor in chief of India TV Rajat Sharma and veteran journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik openly came out in favour of the movie claiming that if the Karni Sena Chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi and those opposing the movie would see it for themselves, not only would they heartily embrace the Director of the film for showing Rani Padmavati in high esteem showing the bravery and valour of the Rajput queen Padmavati and Rattan Singh in correct perspective but for also highlighting Allauddin Khiljee as the brutal killer and a king with sexual lust.

There is nothing, not even the minutest of disrespect to the legendary queen as being propagated by the Karni Sena chief and other Rajput organisations. Despite all this what makes things worse and worrisome is the fact that whosoever is opposing the film have not seen it and are expressing their opposition on mere assumptions. They should have first watched the film for themselves and then arrive at the conclusion as to what exactly should be their future course of action instead of resorting to recourse for national protests and dire arbitrary threats of life to its makers and actors.

Sounds shocking that the issue is being politicised out of proportion and given a caste colour as elections in Gujarat are scheduled for next months and few other states are to go for election next year. The Rajput votes which is in abundance in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, its chief ministers have already banned the movie in two states and seems to be banned in other states as well.

Now, states like Uttarakhand are also witnessing such protests and the organisations like the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has also come into lime light sending clear signals that the issue has adopted religious and communal proportions. It is saddening to note that the state chief ministers instead of dealing with the maintenance of law and order situation seem to be more concerned in patronising the protestors and becoming judges themselves to decide the fate of the movie.

If it is so then what’s the relevance of the Central Board of Film Certification headed by Punya Prasoon Joshi an eminent literateur and film maker and his advisory council. It would have been in the fitness of the things, had the the organisors of the protest demonstrations demanding ban on the controvertial film would have first seen the movie for themselves or requested the CBFC to check the antecedents of the film and decide its future or destiny than to resort to such nation wide protests.

History has various interpretations and making of the film if plays with facts to hurt the sentiments of the community should definitely be banned. But one should first practically see it with his or her own eyes before arriving at any decision. However there are some historians who even say that legendary Queen Padmavati never existed. What do you say friends?

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.
