Director Vikash Verma says he has tried to weave the myriad relations between the nations by a love story
An upcoming action thriller, No Means No, aims to deepen bilateral relations between India and Poland, similar to Raj Kapoor’s 1970 film, Mera Naam Joker, rekindled the bond between India and Soviet Russia.
The film is the primary Indo-Polish manufacturing and has been made in Hindi, Polish and English by Mumbai-based filmmaker Vikash Verma. The director stated he has tried to weave the socio-cultural, non secular, and bilateral ties between the 2 nations by a love story. The film revolves across the story of an Indian man (performed by debutant Dhruv Verma) who visits Poland to take part in a ski championship and falls in love with a Polish girl.
The forged contains actors Gulshan Grover, Deep Raj Rana, Sharad Kapoor, Nazia Hassan and Kat Kristian from India; and Natalia Bak, Anna Guzik, Sylwia Czech, Pawel Czech, Jersey Handzlik and Anna Ador from Poland. The playback singers embrace Shreya Ghoshal and Hariharan. Produced by G7 Films Poland, the snowy mountains and picturesque places featured within the film present a glimpse into life in Poland and is probably going to give a lift to the nation’s tourism.
One of the central themes of the movie is ladies empowerment and options highly effective feminine characters. Mr. Grover, who performs a lawyer from India, stated, “Will the character of women be judged according to the length of their skirt? On the one hand, we pray to the deities of holy goddesses Durga and Kali, and on the other, we humiliate and objectify their real living forms. How long will this go on?”
Mr. Verma stated when a girl says “no, it is a no. And nothing more beyond that. There lies the full stop.” The filmmaker stated he plans to make one other film titled ‘The Good Maharaja’, which can be based mostly on Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji Jadeja, the Maharaja Jam Sahib of Nawanagar, Gujarat. In the pre-Independence period, the Maharaja supplied shelter and training to round 1,000 Polish youngsters evacuated from the USSR to escape German bombings throughout World War II.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants people from around the world to know how an Indian Maharaja, without caring for any adverse impact, went ahead to give shelter to the Polish children. One of these children went on to become the Prime Minister of Poland,” Mr. Verma stated.
The filmmaker stated whereas researching for the film, he discovered that the Polish authorities had put in a statue of the Maharaja of their Parliament and a street had been named after him. “But unfortunately not many people in India know about the great contribution of the Maharaja. Sanjay Dutt will play the titular role,” Mr. Verma stated.
In a letter to Mr. Verma, Małgorzata Pępek, Member of Parliament, Poland, and chairwoman of the Polish & Indian Parliamentary group, stated she is satisfied this movie will lead to fascinating initiatives which can show to be a marvellous method to promote Poland.
In a press release, Ajay Bisaria, former Indian Ambassador to Poland (now High Commissioner to Canada), stated, “It [the film] underlines the cultural connections and friendship between the two countries.”
Deputy Prime Minister of Poland Professor Piotr Glinski, who can be in-charge of the tradition ministry, has performed a key function within the film’s making.
