The company has its own laws, its own administration, its own army. It controls the destiny of one fifth of humanity. Mangal Pandey - The Rising is an epic tale of friendship, betrayal, love and sacrifice set against the backdrop of what the British called the sepoy mutiny but which for the Indians was the First War of Independence. 'Company Raj' as it was known, had been plundering the country, treating the locals unjustly and causing widespread resentment. After a hundred years of subjugation, the Indian consciousness is rising through the revolutionary prospect of change and self-rule.

I saw the movie Mangal Pandey yesterday and the images are still quite
vivid in my mind. I attribute this to the wonderful cinematography and
the colourful canvas that Ketan Mehta uses to unfold the story before
The madness in Mangal Pandey's, roughly translated as "junoon", can
only be portrayed by a great actor. A. R. Rehman's music is so good
that it can make your hair stand on end. The four story tellers atop an
elephant visiting villages as they tell their story is a great
The reviews of the film in the Indian film media shocked me. I fail to
understand the motive or even the thought process behind them unless it
is that we are all in the danger of succumbing to cheap cynicism when
feelings or ideas of patriotism come up in a creative form.
People have complained about the colour and the song and dance that
Ketan has used. I believe this is because of two reasons--one is that
Ketan has a theatre background and this is a part of folk theatre -to
use music and dance to convey messages. The other reason is that in a
movie dealing with the tragic consequences of brave actions it is
important to to provide some kind of relief.
Even the presence of the two women which has has been criticised, is
important to give the feel of the time. Mangal Pandey had to be shown
as a real living human being not some flat lifeless character unearthed
from dusty history books. One of the female characters brought to light
the repugnant practise of Sati whereas the nautch girl was used to
depict the presence of pleasure houses for the company employees. Both
are necessary to give us a realistic picture of that era.
A comment was made elsewhere that the younger audiences found it hard
to connect with the historical character. Is it easier, then,for the
youth of modern India to connect with MTV and reality shows with no
content? And if this is so then does it not become even more important
for our film makers to produce films with real content that may inspire
pride in our culture and history?
Mangal Pandey is a great film. From the first scene to the last you can
see the immense amount of hard work that has gone into its making.
The only thing that rankled was the voice over provided by Om Puri. It
I think the movie deserves great accolades.
