Raag Desh is a movie which is based on the very important topic of Indian National Army revolves around the Second World War Era. The movie has been directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and is being produced by the Rajya Sabha TV. The cast of the movie includes, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah in the lead roles. As the movie proves itself to be the most anticipated movie of the year with its posters and trailer, the initiative of promotional activities have been taken by UFO Moviez that is India’a Largest Digital Cinema Distribution network and in-cinema advertising platform has been partnered with RSTV to handle the movie’s promotional activities through its In-Cinema Promotion capabilities which is said to be unmatched.

The interesting part of the movie is its shooting locations which includes parts of Delhi like Seelamgarh area inside the Redfort where the INA soldiers were believed to be held captive. The movie has also been shot at the most famous place of Delhi that is Chandni Chowk. A few days ago the makers of the movie released the first look of the movie which features Kunal Kapoor in a never seen before avatar as he was seen in an Army Officer uniform which managed to clearly depict the theme of the movie.

It is always believed to be a thumbrule for all the actors in the industry to live in the character of the movie they are playing as it brings genuinely and impact in the role. Same was the rule being followed by the lead actors of the movie Kunal Kapoor and Mohit Marwah on Thursday where they had a “surreal experience” as they walked into Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s ancestral home here ahead of the release of their film “Raag Desh Birth of a Nation.” “It is really surreal. The actor said that he knew about INA but never believed that Subhash Chandra Bose had such powers too.

The film set for a July 28 release is about the contribution of Subhas Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army (INA) in India’s Independence. Kapoor essays the role of Shah Nawaz Khan while Marwah portrays Sahgal.”It was absolutely fascinating to see pictures of Shah Nawaz, to see pictures of Netaji, to see his footsteps that reminded me of the song ‘Kadam Kadam Badaye ja’,” said Kapoor. Marwah said it was an emotional moment. “I didn’t have too much knowledge about INA myself. It’s an emotional moment. The energy is getting to me,” he said. Kapoor also posed in front of the iconic four-door German sedan Wanderer that ferried Netaji during his “Great Escape” in 1941. Netaji’s nephew Sisir Bose drove him in the sedan (bearing the registration number BLA 7169) through the streets of Kolkata to Gomoh (now in Jharkhand) hoodwinking British intelligence. He reached Germany via the Khyber Pass, Kabul and Moscow. Sumantra Bose, Sisir’s son, hosted the team.

The movie will hit the theatres on 28th July, 2017. Go watch with your family and friends.
