More Top NewsBy: IANS | New Delhi | Published: April 23 2017 12:24 pm Vidya Balam along film director Srijit Mukherjee at the Her Upcoming Film Begum Jaan film Promotion Photo by Debajyoti Chakraborty Related News Partition remains a searing reality in the history of India and Pakistan Against this backdrop Srijit Mukherji has sought to bring to Hindi filmgoers what he had for Bengali viewers two years ago “The subject is very hard-hitting Partition as an event demands that kind of treatment While reading stories of partition and its impact on human lives by Saadat Hasan Manto and Ismat Chughtai I used to get angry and hurt I wanted to show that in-your-face anger through Begum Jaan in these films” Mukherji told IANS in a phone interview from Mumbai He did through Begum Jaan what he had earlier done through Rajkahini — tell the tale of a strong-willed woman trying to preserve a way of life in her brothel which was being overwhelmed by fast-moving events of a nation in turmoil The movie’s protagonist and its dominating figure not only has a hard grip on what goes inside she also commands a hold among the who’s who of the society many of whom are customers of the brothel Her house is seen as a safe haven of sorts for many destitute women who were abused at some point But it’s a tough safe haven — the madam keeps a tight leash on her girls In Bengali the movie portrayed the problems that the Radcliffe Line had created for Begum Jaan’s brothel as the border demarcating India and East Pakistan went through her bordello dividing it into two halves In the Hindi version one part of Begum’s house falls in India and the other in West Pakistan Cyril Radcliffe was a British lawyer who got the job of dividing a seething cauldron of a nation into its Muslim- and Hindu-majority areas Where a fine scalpel was needed for a delicate operation he was given an axe and where years were needed to separate millions he was given five weeks The death of a million people ensued Begum Jaan and her girls become livid when they learn about the Radcliffe Line from the officers-in-charge of the Border Commission She threatens to do a partition of their bodies — and thereby hangs a tale of misery violence and women empowerment in an era where two nations were taking birth through a trial by fire Unlike the Bengali version where apart from Begum Jaan all the other 10 girls’ roles were played by established actresses the Hindi version has many unknown faces “I didn’t want pretty faces I wanted faces that will carry stories” Mukherji along with the film’s casting director Mukesh Chhabra spent two months searching for such faces Mukherji had tried to make the movie as close as he could to reality Begum Jaan begins with a scene uncannily similar to the infamous Nirbhaya rape that took place in Delhi The only difference here was the girl and her boyfriend are saved by an elderly woman who starts undressing herself in front of the goons which eventually made them flee the spot Although both the movies received some critical acclaim the Hindi version was not seen as a great success at the box office “People from northern part of the country really enjoyed it But pan-India it didn’t do well” Srijit said talking about the response “The main reason is that I think the theme was dark and disturbing There was very little entertainment There was no so-called relief after watching the movie There was no pop-corn entertainment” he added He also felt the movie was “too melodramatic” for the urban audience “The trauma of partition didn’t affect the entire country equally” Mukherjee said Mukherji’s Begum Jaan comes after several years of hiatus in a trend which was common in the past — of making Bengali movies in Hindi The trend was strengthened by famous directors like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Shakti Samanta “I went to Mumbai for subtitling of Rajkahini when Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhat gave me the idea to remake it into a Bollywood film Then I started working towards it” the director said The low budget (Rs 19 crore) movie though has broken even “I am satisfied with the debut of my Hindi movie” he said Mukherji a celebrated national award winning director says he is mulling the remake of two of his Bengali movies — Hemlock Society and Chotushkone — into Hindi films “It is a healthy trend It will give Bengali cinema a national stage” he said He is also planning a full-fledged Bollywood movie but declined to give details Also read:Begum Jaan movie review: Vidya Balan tries to invest some feeling into her role which soon turnsclichéd

Navnirman Sena chief both aspiring to form a government on their own party’s strength are fighting shy of contesting a seat each Uddhav Thackeray is leading a vituperative stinging vindictive campaign against his former ally the BJP and incidentally it would seem see infliction of collateral damage on the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party He has to stymie BJP’s perception of a Narendra Modi wave Raj Thackeray a former admirer of Modi who was gung-ho abouthim during the Lok Sabha polls is now running him down as a ‘Prime Minister for Gujarat’ He had held last minute adjustmentdialoguewith his rival cousinandhas a much clearer blueprint for the statewhichis out there on the stump everywhere Raj and Uddhav from whatever they have said do not see it fit to contest the elections Agencies Both from whatever they have said do not see it fit to contest the elections Theirtraditional excuse being that it was not in the Thackeray’s DNA They are rulers without elected office if and when their party – now parties – get power If they don’t they will be looking fora seat If their party got to rule post October 19 vote count they would contest Uddhav does not explain his ‘conditions apply’ choice but has been asking persistent media this: "Why shouldn’t I become the chief minister Why shouldn’t I aspire to be one" Why wouldanyone stop him if his party came to power The MNS chief’s explanation for his facsimile attitude is along these lines "If the MNS comes to power I will myself take the responsibility of (being) the chief minister" he told the Idea Exchange of The Indian Express A moment later he added "If the MNS comes to power I will definitely contest the elections" Far more expansive than his elder cousin he says "I have to campaign all over Maharashtra Instead of thinking about a single constituency I have decided to regard the whole of Maharashtra as my constituency and campaign accordingly” He cites some examples too "Narendra Modi first became Gujarat CM and then contested elections A party like BJP was behind him Chadrababu had the goodwill of the NTR backing him Jayalalitha had MGR behind her All of them already had parties As I have myself established the MNS the challenge is a big one" These preferences and arguments hide a single point: it needs some chutzpah to go out there and win for oneself a seat than sending others out to the electoral slaughter Neither can afford a loss of face though big names in India’s political history including Indira Gandhi have been disfavoured as a candidate in an election and survived The two gentlemen run their parties on the basis of their strength either felt contrived or assumed that they are people who call the shots and are invincible as persons The swagger seen far more in them than in politicians of other hues stems from that belief A Thackeray as a humbled candidate would be antithetical to their persona and its sustenance In electoral strategizing there is something called "electoral merit” a clearly Indian political measure to judge if a candidate can win a seat on his own and if necessary with financial props from the party It does not matter if a person has a criminal record a jail stay as an accused et al Party bosses keep assessing if the likely nominee could win is the topmost question when assessing the worth of a ticket seeker It does not matter if he or she is an import like the 51 from all major political parties who have been nominated by the BJP Win or thwart the main rival is the doctrine There are leaders who are cocksure of the outcome on their seats and not often wrong like Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar despite odds against him who campaign all over the state and make a nominal appearance in their constituency… err.pocket borough They almost have a proprietorial claim most often honoured However it needs substantial courage and confidence that they would win These days when most of the campaign is through the television – advertisements and live relays of rallies – one needn’t be pinned down to a constituency As Raj Thackeray put it he did not want to be pinned down to one constituency Here are two examples After one loss in a Lok Sabha election from a Delhi constituency Manmohan Singh despite being a prime minister ran for cover to Assam to secure his Rajya Sabha seat In sharp contrast stood the much admired man who later attracted much revile Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party He contested a Delhi seat for the Assembly and simultaneous went on the stump for his partymen on the ballot He also marshalled enough gumption to contest the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat against a biggie Narendra Modi It was far beyond seeking to develop a David and Goliath script; it was leading from the front When a leader backs out from the biggest challenge the level of inspiration he or she instils in the followers get lower Going on a blitzkrieg is one thing and simultaneously exhibiting the ‘can-do’ spirit is another The cousins have let their parties down even if it were the mother of all electoral battles in Maharashtra’s history Look at the way Prithviraj Chavan scuttled to Karad on hearing whispers that Modi would hold a rally in that constituency The Pawar’s have been delivering their ripostes when they are tub-thumping elsewhere to what Modi said – ‘ending the slavery to the uncle-nephew duo’ but didn’t show their nervousness if any A leader cannot explain the campaign across the state as a distraction especially when they have their well-oiled machinery which can run the show for the boss after he or she filed the nomination That smacks somewhat of lack of confidence Leaders in politics grow by a sense of adventure as well according to official figures. after
