This month will see the release of some really good content-driven films, one among them is Hey Ram – Hamne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya being helmed by Naeem A. Siddiqui. The makers have launched the trailer of this film today, do check it out.
The film is an effort to re-instil the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhi especially non-violence in the people of today.
Speaking about the film, director Naeem Siddiqui said, “While I was celebrating Gandhi Ji’s birthday as non- violence day on 2nd October with my friends and family in Lucknow, the same night I saw on television that United Nations too is celebrating Gandhi Ji’s birthday as World Non-Violence Day. I got so much touched, inspired and encouraged that I decided that we should do something really big and meaningful for society on 2nd October 2018 which also happens to be Gandhi Ji’s 150th birth anniversary. With this inspiration, I planned and decided to make a film on Gandhi Ji’s Philosophy and we made this film by the name “Hey Ram, Humne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya”. The whole objective of this film is to spread a message of non-violence across the world.
Today’s world is an exact replica of the conditions and environment of hate and violence which prevailed in 30th Oct 1948 and led to the assassination of the Greatest Leader of mankind, Mahatma Gandhi. It was similar conditions during those days what the world is facing today – fear and violence in the name of religion, caste and racism. Through this film I tried to spread a message of importance of Gandhi Ji’s philosophy of Love, peace and tolerance in the world and I want that on 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, every one of us should take an oath that we will not let Gandhi ji’s philosophy die because this is the only philosophy which can fight hate and violence.”
The film stars Jatin Goswami and Samikhsa Bhatnagar in pivotal roles. Hey Ram – Hamne Gandhi Ko Maar Diya, is all set to hit the theatres on 23rd February 2018.
