Gopi Puthran, writer-director of Mardaani 2, says, “Mardaani 2 addresses a huge societal issue of rape and the rise of horrific crimes committed by juveniles in India. One is deeply moved when such shocking incidents happen and as a writer, I wanted to voice this issue and bring to light a terrible reality that today’s India and its youth face. I was troubled by many, many incidents that took place across our country in the last four years and the complex nature of those crimes left me shocked and perplexed. As a human being, I felt fear after reading about these incidents because it could happen to my family or people that I know and I wanted to do my bit to make as many people aware of the threat posed by nameless, faceless, young and underage boys who are resorting to such violence.”

Mardaani 2 has been inspired by all such incidents that rocked the country and left us all scarred. Despite all the inspirations, Mardaani 2 at the end of the day is a film and not a documentary and it should be seen as that. Kota has been used by us as the setting for this film only. We are, in no way, suggesting that such events or incidents happen in Kota and there was no intention to tarnish the reputation of the city. If this has hurt or upset the sentiments of residents of the city, we are deeply regretful. We realize that since the trailer says it’s ‘Inspired By True Events’ and our film is based in Kota, it could be open to miscommunication. YRF has decided that we will remove the words ‘Inspired By True Events’ from the film to ensure that there is no further room for misinterpretation for anyone. We shot Mardaani 2 extensively in Kota and we only received love and warmth and huge cooperation from the people and all the authorities of the city. This gesture is YRF’s mark of respect to Kota and it’s wonderful people.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas completes 18 years of it’s release

Devdas has been considered to be one of Bhansali’s best films till date

Published at

Celebrated as one of Bollywood’s most cult films, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s all time classic Devdas featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan continues to remain one of the most notable works of Indian cinema. Today, July 12, 2020 marks 18 years of Devdas and there are various reasons for us to get nostalgic about this epic love story.

A visual treat for film aficionados, the film had left the audiences spellbound with it’s storyline, grandiose sets, splendid costumes and scintillating music. Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of Devdas, a wealthy law graduate who returns from London and falls in love with his next-door neighbour Paro (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). As Paro marries ends up marrying someone else, Devdas becomes heartbroken and turns into an alcoholic. While he tries to deal with the pain of separation from his childhood sweetheart, Devdas finds support in courtesan Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit Nene).

Everything from solid performances to it’s blockbuster songs, this adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, truly traversed the boundaries of Indian cinema. A timeless rendition of love and fate, the magnum opus was India’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars in 2003 and even was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. The landmark film won in various categories at the 48th Filmfare Awards including the Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Choreography, Best Art Director and many more. Film’s all three leads even won big at the 50th National Film Awards. Devdas was then declared as the Best Foreign Language Film at the British Academy Film Awards. In addition to this, the romantic saga was even hailed at the Star Screen and Zee Cine Awards the same year.

Even after 18 years of it’s release, Devdas continues to wins us with it’s sheer opulence. Each time Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan came together, the screen truly smouldered and Madhuri Dixit Nene beautifully spread magic with her class act. Cinema maverick Sanjay Leela Bhansali truly outdid himsef with this film and it will always be regarded as one his best works of all times.
