Rang De Basanti 2006 Movie Production:-
Rakeysh Mehra took seven years to research and develop the story, including three to write the script. While some raised doubts about his morale following the failure of his last film, Aks, at the box office.
he retorted by saying that it would not affect him at all. He added that not only did his storytelling technique improve, but past mistakes had helped him improve his filmmaking abilities.
Rakeysh said the following in a scriptwriter’s conference conducted by the Film Writers Association in the year 2008, “I was making a documentary called Mamooli Ram, on Amul, the milk revolution with Kamalesh Pandey.
We were sitting in a small hotel room in Nanded, drinking. We started singing songs, and we both realized we liked similar songs. And so Rang De Basanti was born. He was angry with the system, I was helpless with the system.
We wanted to do so much. But we really can’t do anything and it was born out of anger. He wrote a story called Ahuti, meaning sacrifice. Ahuti was about the armed revolution about India, between the years 1919 and 1931.
It started with Ashfaqullah Khan, Ramprasad Bismil, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, went on to Chandrashekhar Azad and so on. We had this amazing screenplay called Ahuti, which we had also termed as The Young Guns of India, which started with a train robbery, Azad on a horse and so on.
I said, “let’s do The Young Guns of India”. We were going to go on the floor, and suddenly there were a couple of films on Bhagat Singh made. But they came and went. Not because they were good or bad films, not because they were written badly or not written so bad.
I’m not being judgmental about them. And this is very important: because they did not reflect the sentiment of today’s time. Nobody in the audience could identify with something which was past. It wasn’t that there wasn’t an idea of patriotism in us.
but it was sleeping somewhere. And you had to kind of relate to it in today’s world. So a couple of bottles of vodka again, and three days later, with a couple of vodkas down, Kamlesh Ji comes up with ‘You know what, I think I’ve cracked it’.
