Hitting theaters on 3rd December is one of the most awaited films of 2010 ‘Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se’ starring Abhishek and Deepika Padukone. Based on the book ‘Do and Die’ by Manini Chaterjee, the film revolves round the historical upheavals of the Chittagong Uprising of 1930.
Chittagong is a peaceful port in the province of Bengal during the times of British India. The people of Chittagong start a revolution which wakes the entire town and sparks whole country.
The film is a true story of the forgotten heroes of 18th April when only in one night five simultaneous attacks took place and life of many people is sacrificed. Almost a group of 64 people of miscellaneous profession and ethnicity die in the attacks. The film is see-saw ride of initial consternation, thrills and attacks, underground movements, brave escapes and melancholic invasions and captures.
As Producer-Director Ashutosh Gowariker is well versed with the period dramas and the success at box office evidently shows it, this time also he has come up with an amazing tale of the true historical India. After ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Jodha Akbar’, he has made a saga of revolution, bravery and sacrifice.
The title of the film revolves round the struggle and feelings of the youth of the bygone era of 1930s. A team of 64 revolutionary freedom fighters sparked up India and woke it up from the deep slumber of colonialism.
Will the acting skills of Abhishek come to the forefront? Will the audience like to Deepika in a non-glamorous role? Will the film instill some patriotism in today’s generation? Will the forgotten heroes will be paid tribute. Wait till 3rd December to find all these answers.
