Dehradun Diary Preview: Film on honour killing Last Updated : 03 Jan 2013 03:52:31 PM IST Dehraadun Diary Preview: Film on honour killing
Dehradun Diary is again a contemporary film that will hit threatres on Friday .It is based on a real-life incidents of honour killing.
The theme of the story is a need of the hour in the wake of horrible and inhuman incidents like Delhi rape case and honour killings.
'Dehradun Diary' traces the journey of the murder victim`s family to get justice. The film gives you a platform to share this urgent call on the crime, violence and political corruption related to such crimes.
Starring Adhyayan Suman and Ragini Nandwani in the lead roles. The film has been directed by Milind Ukey and has been produced by Milind Ukey and has been produced by Yatin Nandwani .
The film has been inspired by several cases of honour-killing of Nitish Katra, Paras Bhasin and Rizwanur Rehman.and the story that revolves around a murder case and fight against corruption in Dehradun.
Dehradun Diary is a film about the strength of a common man, the fury that lends you and the fearlessness that come only with unconditional love.
Now the trend in the films have changed as it depicts the prevailing social evils ie people`s fight against rising corruption in the political and judicial systems.
"It is a hard-hitting subject about a real-life murder case. The whole story around this murder reflects strongly on our social realities. It is about corruption in politics, security and judiciary systems and how a common man is affected by it," Ukey said.
"`Dehradun Diary` is a need of these times. It is a reaction to the horrible and inhuman incidents like what happened in Delhi rape case. `Dehraadun Diary` depicts people`s uprising against corruption at all levels," he added.
Produced by Anita Dhawan and Yatin, the film features Ragini Nandwani of ‘Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein’ fame, Adhyayan Suman and Rohit Bakshi. It has been mostly shot in Dehradun, capital of Uttarakand.
Rageeni Nandwani is a lead actress who hails from a family with political clout and her relationship with Rohit Bakshi does not go down well with them.
Rohit is murdered by her brother, Vishal Bhonsle, in the name of honour killing. The murder puts Rageeni in a fix —whether to stand by the truth or support her family. Adhyayan Suman, who plays the victim's brother, is left to do rounds of courts and struggle for justice, as it happens in reality.
"The film is based on a real-life murder case, which happened few years back in Uttar Pradesh. Dehradun was part of Uttar Pradesh that time. Hence it is placed in Dehradun so that we can understand the kind complexities of northern India politics," he added.
In sync with the theme of the film, its poster also carries a tag line ‘Abb Toh System Ki Bhi Bajegi’.
"Though, apparently, we are living in the biggest democracy of the world, we are suffering from old feudal, aristocratic and dictator system of power and politics. They use their power to manipulate every system to their advantage," he said.
