This is my first post on HB's Universe and i feel i came across a wonderful subject like PAAN SINGH TOMAR to speak as my first post on this blog.
On usual Sunday afternoon, as we were trying to kill our time in mercury rising climate at RAJKOT (summers in Rajkot have their own charm ...), we ie my wife Jahnvi, my brother-in-law Prakash and myself decided to go for screening of PAAN SINGH TOMAR - after having a lofty Sunday afternoon Ghar kaa Khaanaa (Yes, for us home food is the best luxury of our life on weekends, a little juxtaposing as compared to others, as usually people prefer to lunch/dine out on weekends, but as i spend 5 weekdays away from home usually eating my two time meals outside on street food joints in city of Ahmedabad, my better-half - Jahnvi, my wife emphasizes and makes it sure that we have home cooked food ...)
Touching back to our original subject, this new genre of producers and directors including Ronnie Screwwala, Rakyesh Om Prakash Mehra, Vishal Bhardwaj, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Apoorva Lakhia, Sudhir Mishra, Imtiyaz Ali etc etc - have not only taken the Indian cinema successfully far away from an era of formula films, but have equally compelled the cinema viewers also to think out of box, by making movies on subjects which have been forgotten and have merely remained in limelight as part of limited media activism.
This new genre of Producers and Directors are not only re-defining the meaning of, "Cinema based Activism OR Activism through Cinema..." but have also proved it strongly that what kind of strength medium like cinema has, when it comes to trigger activism. This breed did just not touch the subjects, but also treated such subjects in a state-of-the-art manner without removing away such subjects from its originality. What was once considered as an ART CINEMA and hardly any producer or director dared to touch it, this breed has given a midas touch to such subjects and PAAN SINGH TOMAR is another such example, as to what kind of life this creators can pump-in, especially when plots are unplotten and the characters are also not realized.
People who have brought pride and honor for the nation by pushing themselves beyond limits and when their honor is tarnished in a society controlled by muscle power, rebels like PAAN SINGH TOMAR are born, one such opening dialogue of the movie speaks all about it, "Daaku? Daaku to Parliament mein hote hai, Bihad mein to Baagi hote hai ...".
Please do not go on any views and reviews, but yes - do not miss to watch PAAN SINGH TOMAR, as no ratings can really prove the worth of this movie. Movie which did not even go on any promotional drive, but the viewers themselves after coming out from cinema hall using their smartphones are busy posting comments on their social networking handles stating, "PAAN SINGH TOMAR, JUST EXCELLENT ..."
