The film on India's second Prime Minister boasts of stellar performances and not celebrity cast
The biopic craze has hit Bollywood big time. After making biopics on Milkha Singh, Mary Kom and Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, we have another biopic in the pipeline. However, this time, the biopic cannot ride on the shoulders of a famous celebrity. This biopic on Lal Bahadur Shashtri, India's second Prime Minister, would be riding high on great performances of stalwart actors like Akhilesh Jain, Jatin Khurana, Om Puri, Prem Chopra, Rati Agnihotri, Rishi Bhutani, Jaiwant Patekar, Imran Hasnee, Manoj Bhatt and Harshita Gaur. The film has been aptly titled Jai Jawan Jai Kisaan, which is one of the most famous quotes which LBS had given.
-The story of Lal Bahadur Shashtri needed to be told. Not many people in our generation know about his contribution to the India we live in today. Thus a brave choice of subject by the filmmakers.
-The depiction of LBS by Akhilesh Jain has turned out fantastic. Years of theatre experience shows in the subtleties that he brings forth to the character.
-The trailer doesn't give out a lot about the plot of the story and therefore, it will create an intrigue among the masses as to which era the film will be set in (Pre-independence or LBS's Prime Ministerial days).
-The camera work used in the film seems to be a bit juvenile. Maybe that could have been due to budget constraints, but for a subject of this grand wethinks the makers should have invested a bit more on it.
-The lack of star power in this film is likely to kill a brilliant film.
