The regional film scenerio in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand is gaining ground with the government of Uttarakhand also taking innovative interest in reviving the official film body but still lot needs to be done to encourage national and regional film makers to produce quality movies in the hilly environs full of serene beauty and conducive pleasent climate.

Of late, the Uttarakhandi artistic talents have shown tremendous amount of interest in regional film making and also their active participation in Bollywood. While Uttarakhand cultural and folk presentations are quite popular worldwide amongst the people of Uttarakhand with legendery singers and musicians like Narendra Singh Negi, late Gopal Babu Goswami, late Chandra Singh Rahi, Heera Singh Rana, Kishan Mahipal, Gajendra Chouhan, Kalpana Chouhan, Rajendra Chouhan, Hema Negi Karsai etc having already made their mark and special contribution to promote the regional Garhwali Kumaon dialects and culture through their melodious songs, prominent actors and producers like Urmi Negi, Late Khanna Sahab, and scores of Uttarakhandi actors including those in Bollywood films like Hemant Pandey, Deepak Dobriyal, Brijendra Kala, Govind Pandey , Himani Shivpuri and Tigmanshu Dhulia have also contributed handsomely to prove their artistic talents and mettle in acting and direction.

Though, there is no dearth of CD films and songs of Uttarakhand flooding the local market with thousands of CD on sale but in terms of exclusive quality things are still on the back bench. Conclusively,we can say that due to the dearth of budget and the lack of governmental support and encouragement to promote regional film making, the desperate rush of low budget CD films and songs have degraded the quality aspect of these productions dominating by quantity.

Though, Uttarakhand has witnessed large screen films like Jagwal, Kabhi Sukh Kabhi Dukh, fyoli, Ghar Jawain, Bhuli E Bhuli etc with number of films still lying in cold storage but after a long time an outstanding Garhwali film produced by SNOWY MOUNTAIN FILM COMPANY owned by prominent actress and producer URMI NEGI, of Pauri Garhwal, living in Mumbai for a long time has made record of sorts by producing an extraordinary Garhwali movie that became super duper hit in Delhi, Mumbai, Pauri, Rishikesh, Dehradun, Roorkie, Lansedown and several other parts of the country. In fact the people of Uttarakhand in and around the 17 year old state have for the very first time fulfilled there desire and hunger for a magnificient movie that was perfect and extraordinare from all aspects viz. carrying a social message, full of sequential passionate story, outstanding cinematography, lovely scenes, precision in dialogues, mesmerising songs and music of legendary singer Narendra Singh Negi and melodious woman co singer Anuradha Nirala, fantastic script and excellent aura which kept the audience tied to their seats for three complete hours, not ready to leave theatres even after the film ended.

The film titled SUBHERU GHAM produced by prestigious Snowy mountain productions with the producer Urmi Negi herself playing the lead role of its heroine made the audience cry in sorrow with the fantastic story line and dialogues. The film was viewed by lacs of students, women from rural and urban areas, youths, middle and old aged and the educated and appreciated by one and all. Produced with a whopping budget of over 90 lacs, the producer has covered the entire amount because the movie being a block bustre in box office n super duper hit in Uttarakhand and the theatres of the cities, towns and metropolises like Delhi and Mumbai satisfied the long pending urge of cinemagoers for an excellent movie like this.

The outstanding quality of this regional Uttarakhandi film in Garhwali dialect titled Subheru Gham meaning early morning sunshine, has been for the very first time selected in the Canada film festival and screened for the international audience as well. This was the first ever Uttarakhandi film having been selected and screened in any international film festival. Primarily hailing from Pauri Gaon, Pauri Garhwal Urmi Negi shifted to Mumbai about 35 year ago and have carved a niche for herself in Bollywood and regional film industry by the dint of her hard work, commitment, intelligence, perfection and perseverence, having produced and acted in big screen regional movies like Ghar Jawain, Fyoli, Kauthig and hindi movies Sautan, serial Tijori, Swami Dada of Devanand and several plays including regional Marathi, Bhojpuri, Nepali and Punjabi films also.

She had been honoured with prestigious Kala Shree award, golder award of competition success and scores of other prestigious regional awards at the hands of the Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat and several state ministers. After the resounding success of Subheru Gham highly talented and versalite actor Urmi Negi is currently producing documentaries for discovery channel and also working on her new project of a fantastic Garhwali film to be in our midst in two years or so. Good luck to her.

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.
