Palekar said, “I liked the germ in the script since it deals with caste issue which has remained invisible in Indian cinema. Also, I liked the fact that while dealing with the oppression of caste and women, the emphasis is not on their social victimhood. It is a tribute to these women’s mass protest against atrocities of caste and patriarchy.”

Amol Palekar added, “The movie is inspired by true events which I liked rather than showcasing a wishful narrative. My character as a retired Dalit judge is multi-layered which we finetuned after poignant deliberations.”

Produced by Yoodlee Films, the film production arm of Saregama, and directed by Sarthak Dasgupta, ‘200 – Halla Ho’ starring Amol Palekar also features Barun Sobti, Rinku Rajguru, Sahil Khattar, Saloni Batra, Indraneil Sengupta and Upendra Limaye.

The film releases on August 20, on ZEE5.
