Even after so many years, the controversy over the death of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose simply refuses to die. After the release of Gumnaami, directed by Srijit Mukherji has added more fuel to the controversy. The film is scheduled to hit the screen on October 2.
The controversy has affected everyone except actor Anirban Bhattacharya who is essaying the role of print journalist Chandrachur Dhar in the film. The actor was quoted saying to The Times of India, "I was not much aware of the controversies surrounding Netaji’s disappearance. Everything can spark a controversy. And controversy did not affected me much."
Recently, the Calcutta High Court had dismissed a plea seeking stay on the release of Gumnaami. Netaji’s death is still an unsolved mystery. There are lots of speculations about it but most of us are clueless about the truth behind these speculations. The film is based on the book named as “Conundrum” written by Anuj Dhar and Chandrachur Ghose which is actually based on the hearings of Mukherjee Commission.
The film will show three popular theories related with Netaji’s death. These three theories are, he died in the plane crash in Taiwan, he died in Russia and the other theory is that he died at an older age while living a secret life as Gumnaami baba.
The trailer opens up with the hearing of Mukherjee commission. The prosecutor hints that Bose might have lived as an ascetic in his later years and has the evidence to prove his claims. However, the jury did not accept it. The jury begins to question the political inclinations of the prosecutor, to which he said that he is a member of Bose's Azad Hind Fauj armed force. In the trailer, there are glimpses of Prosenjit Chatterjee who is essaying the tutorial role in the film.
