The music of Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey was launched in a suburban hotel tonight among a lot of paaparazi and the cast and crew of the film. All the people present there were dressed in red and white Indian attire to grace the occasion.
Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey or KHJJS is an upcoming hindi film directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar which stars Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The film is a period thriller based on the book ‘Do and DIE : The Chittagong Uprising 1930-34’ by Manini Chatterjee. KHJJS is a true story of those forgotten heroes from Chittagong in Bengal who sacrificed their lives to chase out the British from our country. This little-known chapter in the history will be presented in a film to showcase how a group of 64 people reigned terror on the Britishers through a series of calculated attacks. Big freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Shaheed Bhagat Singh are known to all but little did we know about this idealistic leader Surjya Sen, a school teacher by profession. Ashutosh Gowarikar has made serious efforts to tell the world about this forgotten hero Surjya Sen and his band of 64 people which mainly constituted of teenagers.
The event was completely star studded as expected. Obviously, the entire Bachchan family i.e; Amitabh, Jaya, Aishwarya were there to support Abhishek. Anupam and Kiron Kher were also seen backing their son Siddharth as he also plays a major role in the movie. Ashutosh Gowarikar opened the event with the explanation about the thinking that went behind making this movie. He also clarified how this movie is a complete adaptation of the book and he hasn’t tried to create his own version of the event, which however has not been the case in his other period movies like Lagaan. He went ahead detailing about the five songs in the movie. Each song in the movie is composed by Sohail Sen keeping in mind the different emotions depicting sacrifice of youths and teenagers for the freedom of their country. The entire cast of the movie performed a small act on the stage stating each of their roles in the film. Further the Music kit was opened by Mr.Amitabh Bachchan among all the other dignitaries on the stage.
The event came to an end with everybody reciting the National Anthem saluting the great freedom fighters of our country. The movie is slated to release on 3rd December 2010. Let us see how well the book has been adapted and presented by Ashutosh Gowarikar.
