Repeating the flavour of ‘Lagaan’ and reflecting British era, ace filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker is back with this Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone starrer.
A period thriller, ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ is based on the book ‘Do And Die: The Chittagong Uprising 1930-34’ by Manini Chatterjee.
1930, British India: In the province of undivided Bengal lies the sleepy, peaceful port of Chittagong. In this unassuming little town a revolution is about to begin; a revolution which will forever wake all of Chittagong and inspire the entire nation.
April 18. 1 night. 5 simultaneous attacks. A band of 64 – 56 innocent yet fearless young boys, 5 defiant revolutionaries, 2 determined young women, and an idealistic leader - Surjya Sen, a school teacher by profession.
This group of 64 represents a little-known chapter in history; a forgotten night that reigned terror on the British through a series of calculated attacks. ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ is a true story of these forgotten heroes and the narrative takes us through every step of the action from the initial trepidation, to the thrill of the attack, to the underground movement, daring escapes and tragic captures, and most importantly, their undying legacy.
A PVR Pictures Presentation of an Ashutosh Gowariker Productions’ film, produced jointly by Ajay Bijli, Sanjeev K. Bijli and Sunita A. Gowariker, the film will hit theatres on December 3, 2010.
