Most people have a better sense of history through popular films. Patriotism, History & Cinema are old companions. Makers of Indian cinema have always glorified Indian History in films which have educated millennia’s about freedom, independence, mythology etc.
One such incident which ignites the sense of patriotism is The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre also known as the Amritsar Massacre which marks one of the darkest moments in Indian history.
In the 100th year of the incident Sarabjit ‘Bonny’ Dugal along with his daughter Vinitha Menon, partner in Yellow Turban Films (YTF) announced their next project JALLIANWALA BAGH TO NOW 13th APRIL 2019 on 13th April, 2019, the day of Baisakhi which is marked as one of the worst political acts of violence in the Indian History.
Maker of super hit film like London Dreams now make a film with a historical backdrop to pay homage to the victims of the devastating incident and yet narrating a story based on today’s generation
The film portrays what bravery, sacrifice and tragedy in the freedom struggle of thousands of innocent men & women. With a cast of A lister actors, directors & producers the film can set a new bench mark.
“This talks more about the history than the film which is more about a story that happens after 100 years of the massacre” says Sarabjit ‘Bonny’ Dugal & Vinitha Menon of Yellow Turban Films (YTF)
The tragic massacre of innocent protesters in Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar on April 13, 1919 remains one of the most horrific memories of British colonial rule in India. This shameful military action against locals peacefully protesting against the oppressive Rowlatt Act has since received worldwide condemnation
