Srijit Mukherji’s controversial directorial ‘Gumnaami’ has been in the headlines ever since its announcement. But the controversies have never let the national award winner director spirit down in directing this movie. And, now the much-anticipated film has locked its releasing date. The film will be releasing on October 2, the birth anniversary of our national father Mahatma Gandhi.
SVF made the announcement on its social media handle, “উত্তরের খোঁজ আসবে আর ঠিক ১ মাসে...#Gumnaami, a film by @srijitspeaketh | Releasing on 2nd October.”
The poster of the movie has already created a lot of buzz on social media. It shows Prosenjit Chatterjee as Bose and a crashed aircraft with smoke billowing out of it. The poster asks, "Did he die in the plane crash? Did he die in Russia? Did he die as ascetic?"
The teaser was released on August 15. The teaser opens with a voiceover claiming that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose died in an airplane crash in 1945. However, there were many speculations that he was captured by Russia where he was tortured to death.
The teaser shows a glimpse of Mahatma Gandhi sent a telegram to Bose's family requesting them to stop Bose's funeral ceremony and instigating that maybe Bose is alive. The voiceover further explains that there are theories that Bose did return to India but started living as a monk. The combination of these two incidents inspires Mukherji's film into a present-day courtroom drama as they as try to decode the legend of Gumnami Baba.
Watch the teaser here:
The film is based on Gumnaami baba who was assumed to be the legendary freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Baba led the life as Hindu saint in Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh in the 1970s or 80s. Netaji Bose died in a plane crash in 1945 which has been doubted by many.
