Madhur Bhandarkar's Indu Sarkar is making some waves in both Bollywood as well as the political arena, thanks to its premise being set against the backdrop of the Emergency period of the '70s and Indira Gandhi regime. The movie, one of its rare kinds, shows us one picture of how the situation was during the era, even though the setting is fictional. However, the director has used Indira Gandhi and her elder son Sanjay Gandhi as characters in his movie, with Neil Nitin Mukesh playing the latter, inviting the ire of the Congress. The movie is sure to create a lot more furore when it comes out.
As of now, let's talk about the latest song from the movie, Dilli Ki Raat. It is a special number to promote the movie, which might play in the background of the film, though I am not sure if the video will ever pop up in the movie. As the movie is set in the '70s, which is also the era of disco, it is inevitable to have one song that is a tribute to that music genre. And who best to bring it back that the real baap of Indian disco, Bappi Lahiri, who has composed as well as sung this track along with Anmol Mallik. While he has judiciously used trumpets and RD Burmanesque vocals to justify the genre, Dilli Ki Raat pales before his real classics like Auva Auva and I am a Disco Dancer. Here's the song...
Indur Sarkar also found itself in trouble with the CBFC who has suggested around 14 cuts. Talking about the cuts, Madhur ranted, “The cuts (that the CBFC has suggested) are very absurd. I don’t know what kind of yardstick they are using for this. When it (a certain scene or dialogue) is being allowed in the trailer and the whole world has seen it and you have given me a U/A certificate for it and here again I am being told that I’ll get a U/A certificate, then why the duplicity? Why can’t I have the same dialogues in the film? Then they wants words like CBI, IB, section officer and a few others to be chopped off. They want me to remove the mention of Kishore Kumar. I don’t know what to say. When I asked them what to call him, then they tell me to use Kishore. It is so funny.”
The movie stars Kirti Kulhari, Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Parvin Dabas, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Zakir Hussain and Ankur Vikal. It is scheduled to release on July 28.
