Mumbai/Gujarat,

27th December 2017.

 

Milind Soman, Rahul Dev, Ashmit Patel and Vijay Raaz come together on screen for a period film “Hamara Tiranga” and to celebrate the 76th Quit India Movement, 2018.

 

Silver Screen Pictures ltd. will launch their feature production “Hamara tiranga”, on the 19th of January, 2018, starring veteran actors like Rahul Dev, Milind Soman, Ashmit Patel and Vijay Raaz.

The film was directed by late Sanjeev Balath and produced by George Mathew. A Period Drama film that unfolds the true story of a small village’s struggle for independence against the British Raj. The story was set in the backdrop of the year 1942, the same time around when the “Quit India Movement” was launched by the then All-India Congress Committee headed by Mahatma Gandhi. The launch date of the film also marks the silver Jubilee of the “Quit India Movement”. The story revolves around a remote Indian village’s war against the British Empire during the 1940's and the ultimate victory of their freedom from British slavery in a small village called Kanakpur, which defeats the British Empire by bringing down their flag and hoisting the Indian Flag, thus attaining independence in the year 1942.

Mr. George Mathew, Producer, says, “It has been shot in Kutch, Gujarat where famous Lagaan Film was shot but with a different background. In Lagaan, freedom is achieved through the game of Cricket but in Hamara Tiranga, villagers attain freedom though the British game of flag hoisting.”

The movie also stars actors like Harry Key, Thomas Munro, Madhu Sharma and Sheetal Shah in lead roles. The music of the film boasts of prominent names from the Music Industry like Lalit Pandit, Umesh Sandilya (Executive Producer) and singers like Sonu Nigam, Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan. Initially titled “The Flag”, the movie has been renamed to “Hamara Tiranga”.

Actor Ashmit Patel says, “Shooting for Hamara Tiranga has been a unique experience because it was my first period film which I based in the 1940s. The character I played is the very down-to-earth and straight from the heart kind of guy, he is that strong man of the village who doesn’t think but goes by what he feels is in his heat, I had a fantastic time shooting in Bhuj in the Rann of Kutch where our set was put up. Playing the character of deva gave me an opportunity to go back in the ear and get into the skin of Deva who epitomizes the aggressive side of people fighting for their freedom. It’s very special to me.”

Actress Sheetal Shah, “Hamara Tiranga” is very close to my heart. My character RADHA is fiery, has a mind of her own. I loved it each day of the 40 days shoot. We shot in Kutch, which made it more special as I’m a Gujarati. The film, being placed in 1942, allowed me to live the pre-independence era. Our costumes were beautiful and with a touch of that era. The set was also stunning and earthy. I am sad to have lost our director Sajeev Balath who was the creator of this story and film. He envisioned this beautiful story of a small village full of innocent villagers and their revolt against the British atrocities. Of the 9 films I have done, this one truly remains my one of  favourite experiences”.
