Makers of ‘Hey Ram Humne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya’ unveils second poster on Gandhiji’s 70th martyr day. The film has ensemble cast of Jatin Goswami, Sameeksha Bhatnagar, Subrat Dutta and Pratima Kazmi in the prominent role and is written and directed by Naeem A Siddiqui.
The film revolves around two complete opposite ideologies, about two strangers who met in a train journey in the panorama of 28th Jan 1948, two days before the death of Gandhiji and events happened during the two days journey, have different impacts on these two individuals and reactions to the events forces to think who is right and who is wrong. When they reaches their destination and ends the journey, they got to know that Gandhi ji was assassinated and events happened after that becomes reflection of the two different ideologies. Today again such ideologies are expanding and in such times, this story once again becomes ideal to provoke thoughts of the followers of such ideologies.
Director Naeem A Siddiqui says, “While I was celebrating Gandhi Ji’s birthday as non- violence day on 2nd October with my friends and family in Lucknow, the same night I saw on television that United Nations too is celebrating Gandhi Ji’s birthday as World Non Violence Day. I got so much touched, inspired and encouraged that I decided that we should do something really big and meaningful for society on 2nd October 2018 which also happens to be Gandhi Ji’s 150th birth anniversary. With this inspiration, I planned and decided to make a film on Gandhi Ji’s Philosophy and we made this film by the name “Hey Ram, Humne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya.”
He further adds, “The whole objective around this film is to spread a message of non violence across the world. Today’s world, is exactly replica of the conditions and environment of hate and violence which prevailed on 30th January 1948, and led to assassination of the Greatest Leader of mankind, Mahatma Gandhi. It was similar conditions during those days what the world is facing today – fear and violence in the name of religion, caste and racism. Through this film I tried to spread a message of importance of Gandhi Ji’s philosophy of Love, peace and tolerance in the world and I want that on 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, everyone of us should take a oath that we will not let Gandhi ji’s philosophy die because this is the only philosophy which can fight hate and violence.”
The film is written and directed by Naeem A Siddiqui, stars Jatin Goswami, Pratima Kazmi, Sameeksha Bhatnagar and Subrat Dutta and is presented by Touchwood multimedia creations.
