Raag Desh, a movie which created a lot of buzz with its trailer at this time on the social media starring Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah in lead role is finally in the theatres today to create an impact on the audience as well. The movie coerced our political leaders to watch the movie and appreciate the actors and directors. Raag Desh movie has been directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. Before the release of the movie, it was presented before our respected former President Pranab Mukherjee and Vice President Mohammad Hamid Ansari at Rashtrapati Bhawan’s auditorium.
The movie narrates a tale of Indian National Army of Subhash Chandra Bose times. It is a presentation of the great and forgotten part of our contemporary times. It revolves around the three chief army officials namely, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon (Amit Sadh), Colonel Prem Sehgal (Mohit Marwah), and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan (Kunal Kapoor)who were said to be detained and locked up at the Red Fort whose trials were gripped by the British government. Even after losing the case against the British Government had to let them go due to the INA members struggle.
The writer-director of the movie Tigmanshu Dhulia managed to choose and narrate the story of our freedom struggle. The story line reflects the hard work of the research team and the writers of the movie as well. The director even succeeded in recreating a pre-independence era with correct costumes, correct dialect and multiple languages that were spoken in the movie leading to authenticity of the movie. The actors performed outstanding well including Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah they were able to portray the much needed aggression and passion of a freedom fighter.
Although the cinematography of the movie cannot be claimed as good because the sets which were created looked artificial specially the Red Fort. The songs which you could remember till the end is Kadam Kadam Badhaye Ja which is believed to be a necessity of the movie. Rest the movie could have been better in terms of cinematography, music and visual appeal. Overall the movie is a watch for patriotics or audience interested in history of Independence.
