This Women’s Day Film Based On Tripal Talaq Phir Ussi Mod Par To Hit Silver Screens All Over India

This year the Women’s Day (March 8, 2019) shall assume special significance as the last cinematic creation of legendary director Lekh Tandon“Phir Ussi Mod Par . . . Talaq” which emphatically espouses the cause of Muslim Women will hit the Silver Screens all over India. It is an avant-garde motion picture based on singularly the most hotly debated topical subject in current times in India, the issue of “Triple Talaq” which features in social and media circles regularly —- a tidal wave of public opinion which refuses to ebb.

Much before the “Triple Talaq” became the flavour of drawing room gossip and the street corner chats “Chai pe Charcha”, Octogenarian veteran Director Lekh Tandon had toyed with the idea of making an avant-garde motion picture on the subject and launched the film in the name and style of“Phir Ussi Mod Par (Back to Square One)”. The uniqueness of the subject so captivated the veteran Director that he not only completed the script in record time but also commenced shooting at a break-neck speed in association with Kanika Multiscope Pvt. Ltd. (KMPL) and completed the film in a record time of six months. This path breaking movie promotes the expedient social cause of doing away with “Triple Talaq” so very adroitly promoted in current times. The thematic treatment of “Phir Ussi Mod Par . . . Talaq” effectively ensures that “Content is back” on celluloid.

The film is now being released by producers Trinetra / Kanika / Anshula Bajpai under the auspices of their banner Kanika Multiscope. The Producers are well-known names in their respective fields – Trinetra Bajpai is an internationally renowned Technocrat and Author, Kanika Bajpai is a celebrated theatre / television and musical artiste whereas Anshula Bajpai is a writer of repute. The songs sung mainly by Kanika Bajpai and Javed Ali create captivating sonorous music reminiscent of the era “When Melody was Queen” with a post-modern touch and are a major highlight –“Melody Returns”.

Without bothering to spend precious time in signing a huge star cast Lekh Tandon had opted for assembling a team of dedicated artistes who fitted the respective powerful roles like a glove. The carefully selected artistes included many Lekh Tandon regulars viz. Kanwaljit Singh. Parmeet Sethi, S. M. Zaheer, Govind Namdeo, Smita Jaykar, Kanika Bajpai, Rajeev Varma, Arun Bali, Haider Ali, Vineeta Malik, Sanjay Batra, Diveeya Dwivedi and newcomer Jividha as the main protagonist. Renowned Cinematographer Jehangir Chowdhury (who had been associated with Lekhji in six films), accomplished Choreographers Madhav Krishan / Jojo, Editor Awadh Narayan Singh, Art Director Chokkas Bhardwaj and Co-Director / Writer Suresh Premvati Bishnoi etc.

Two Fold Twist Short film on Road Safety

As the tail of the year approaches New Year Party In the world plans to welcome 2019 with a great bash. New Year’s Eve can make you nostalgic of the 12 months that sped by but don’t you worry, make up for all the nights you missed by catching-up for this 31st night. Party with family, friends, party outdoors and in resorts to have the best New Year. Apart from the party and enjoyment you should take care of your safety while driving and you can help the others during the road accident. 1,37,000 people died on India’s roads last year. Our roads are the most dangerous in the world and so Producer Chanda Patel made a short film “Two Fold Twist” staring Suraj Kumar and Raveena Tilwat to spread the message of Road Safety and helping others while road accident. This short film is made to spread awareness among people to drive safely, as their life matters to someone. Many die as a consequence of inexperience, speeding, intoxication or just plain recklessness. The focus of this short film is to deliver a message to the masses and youngsters about the helping others during road accident.

While talking to the media Chanda Patel Said, “ When a road accident occurs, bystanders will usually try to help the injured, or at least call for help. In India it’s different. In a country with some of the world’s most dangerous roads, victims are all too often left to fend for themselves. Film is a strong medium which has maximum impact on people as they remember scenes and dialogues for long time. Through this film, we want to give message that people can atleast inform the police by dialling 100 or call in ambulance by dialling 108 from their phones. This will help in saving precious lives”.

Stating that road accidents are the biggest cause of death in the city, The aim of the film is to raise awareness of road safety and help to save lives. Director Riyan Koul said, “most of the accidents are due to the negligence. Many people have lost lives because traffic rules were not followed. It is very important to be responsible while driving. Road safety should also be taught to children from a young age”.

11th Ramleela show in a row in America by Varsha Naik

Varsha Naik founder and CEO of Navrang Dance Academy in New Jersey organized 11th Ramleela show in New Jersey with Indo American Festival INC. It all began in the year 2012, when Varsha was given the task of choreographing a short version of Ramleela in ten minutes, this was the turning point for her life. One of the coordinators and president of Indo American Festival (IAF), offered her an opportunity to choreograph and direct the award-winning show “Ramleela” for their Dushahra Festival which was started by Late Shri Mangal Gupta ji. It was a challenge, which she took up as she knew she had to present the story in a

way that the audience in USA could understand and enjoy. Varsha was fascinated with the entire concept of the Ramleela. For her, it was not about repeating the same Ramleela that has been done in past years, it was about creating her own way of narrating the story.

The first show had 100 participants including Indian and non-Indian artists. The concept was based on Broadway Musical. This was the first time she had choreographed a two-hour musical drama, where she had started with 10 participants and ended up creating a show with over 100 participants including dancers, actors and even child artist. The show itself began with fifty people sitting and watching. However, as it went on, the audience began calling and texting their friends and families to come and watch. In no time, the event venue was filled with thousands of people watching and enjoying the show. Even the security guards struggled with controlling the masses since no one was prepared for such an amazing response.

After her first successful show there was no looking back. Last year, in 2017, there were close to eighteen thousand people watching the show and this year they crossed that number too as people not only from New Jersey but from all over east- coast of US drive down to enjoy the festival and watch the show. The event is completely free of charge for the community to come and enjoy the festivities. The main attraction still is Varsha Naik’s Ramleela, The burning of the “Ravan effigy”, a spectacular firework show, and shopping at the event.

Varsha says that her biggest supporter is her team. She feels, If the team is passionate about the project, the battle is half won. Indo- American Festival Inc, founded in 1998, is the only organization which celebrates Dushahra in USA by burning Ravan effigy. After the grand success of 2013, Indo- American Festival Inc took this play to another level and the performance was repeated in South Street Sea Port, New York in 2014. The fire work that year was done at Hudson river which was impeccable. Now the show happens every year at Long Island, New York and Edison, New Jersey. Since then every year the Musical RamLeela is performed twice a year. Adding new elements such as prop, costumes, and music to keep it fresh.

A musical theater drama is not only about the story line but also about the graphics and effects. “We have personally chosen and handpicked everything. The costumes are designed and made in India by Nalini Namjoshi and Rohini Kopargaonkar. The props are created especially for the show every year locally in New Jersey by talented artists” said Varsha. After this year’s successful show in New York and New Jersey, Varsha wishes and plans to take her show on the road to all the different cities and states and spread awareness about this wonderful Indian mythological saga.

2018 was the 20th year for IFA hosting this event and the 5th Year for Varsha Naik’s Navrang Dance academy to successfully perform on stage. Dushara festival and Ramleela are an important part for many Indian Americans here as it brings back memories from their childhood. It was extremely Cold this year, still  people came with their family. “I feel extremely happy that through the medium of theatre and art Iam able to connect with the current generation and make them aware of Indian culture” said Varsha.
