A few days back, a film poster was announced. Where we came to know that after a long time, Rajkumar Santoshi is coming with a film named Gandhi – Godse – Ek Yudh. This film is being released along with the Pathan film.
While Pathan will release on January 25, Gandhi – Godse – Ek War will release on January 26. Republic Day is celebrated on January 26 and the film is being released on the same day. We all know that the two sides have always kept their point regarding Gandhi and Godse.
Godse also told in his book why Gandhi killed Godse. Some consider Godse a murderer and some consider him a revolutionary. Marathi cinema has also made a film depicting the ideology of Godse named Nathuram Godse.
Now a big film is going to be released in Bollywood named Gandhi-Godse-Ek Yudh. Here we will tell the same story.
Rajkumar Santoshi has already made a film like The Legend of Bhagat Singh in which he has not shown Gandhi from a positive angle. In such a situation, the audience now feels that Godse’s truth will be shown in the upcoming film and he may be presented as a hero.
However, Rajkumar Santoshi’s association with the Left is also visible in his films. But in The Legend of Bhagat Singh, he did not present Gandhi in a great light.
Now the teaser of Gandhi – Godse – a war film has been presented, it seems that through this also an attempt has been made to improve the image of Godse.
We have seen that for many years Godse has been shown to us as a murderer and Gandhi as a Mahatma and a saint. But this film is probably going to break this trend now because this film tells in the teaser that Godse’s voice was suppressed after Gandhi’s assassination.
Time did not give him a chance to speak his mind, but this film will give him a chance to speak his mind. This film has been written by writers like Asghar Wajahat.
Now whether this film can do justice to Godse or not, it will be known only after watching the film. Seeing the teaser, it seems that the film will prominently show Godse’s ideology and his words, but what is the intention of the writer and director about the film, it will be known only after watching the film.
