Hello Jai Hind! - a tribute to 26/11 martyrs
The ghastly 26/11 episode will complete 3 years on Saturday. To remind the people about the ill effects of this event on the lives of those who fought a gallant battle with dreaded terrorists in Mumbai, a new Marathi film ‘Hello Jai Hind!’ pays sincere tributes to all of them.
Though this film has been shot on the backdrop of this event, it goes on to narrate the tragic story of one such brave Police Constable- Shivaji Pawar, attached to Mumbai Police Special Crime Branch. The film goes on to show how he and his wife Durga had to face the challenges in the society, when they decide to take on life only through the right path.
Directed by Gajendra Ahire, and starring Nitin Chandrakant Desai and Trupti Bhoir in the lead role, the film tries to be realistic in its approach, when it comes to speaking on certain administrative decisions on delay in justice and treating a dreaded terrorist under trial like a special guest in the jail. The film does succeed in highlighting this issue timely, with hard hitting dialogues and realistic scenes to clearly indicate how such dreaded terrorists have been taking advantage of our country’s liberal policies. But, unfortunately the film does not conclude well, so as to inspire the audience. It is almost like showing the helplessness of common man, hoping for justice, no matter how long it takes.
