Road To Sangam - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

It is really very unfortunate when brilliant movies such as “Road To Sangam” come and go unnoticed without making any kind of buzz mainly due to lack of publicity and no Bollywood's big over-famous heroes on its posters. But if this means loss for its producers then it is also means an even bigger loss for the viewers too, who remain deprived of such small budget gems due to the above mentioned reasons.

Anyway, if you haven’t heard of this title earlier then let me introduce you to a film which not only has some great actors showing their skills on the screen, but which is also based on a splendid real life inspired story idea which is both exciting as well as enlightening at the same time.

What if I tell you that even after more than 5 decades of Gandhi’s death, a part of his ashes are still lying there in a vault waiting for getting immersed in the holy waters? And now a big national procession has to be planned to take those ashes for their final rituals along with thousands of people who love & respect the Mahatama. That’s the basic idea of “Road To Sangam” which is surprisingly based on a true incident of the late nineties when a part of Mahatama’s ashes were actually discovered lying in a bank’s locker.

In real life, Gandhi’s grand-grandson Mr. Tushar Gandhi took legal actions to claim his ancestral heritage and then did the final rituals of immersing those ashes in the Holy Waters. The film starts off with the same news and then the city officials decide to take the ashes in the same FORD car in which it was earlier taken in 1948. But it all becomes more exciting when a Muslim Hasmat Ullah, is given the job of repairing the old Ford engine and he willingly agrees to do so without knowing its adverse consequences which are going to follow.

As the news spreads about the national discovery, the city gets caught in a sudden complex situation of communal hatred affecting the years long relationships between friends and neighborhood. Luckily the film intelligently directed by Amir Rai, is equally interesting and worth watching as suggested by its well adapted story plot. And the names of the well known artists featuring in it should surely inspire you to watch it at once. So if you really want to see a great thought provoking film, made against the backdrop of National Communal Unity then do yourself a favour and watch “Road To Sangam” at the earliest, especially along with all the young boys and girls in your family. Because it’s the young generation today, who has to be made familiar with all the mistakes which we had done in the past.

Directed By Amit Rai

Starring : Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Pawan Malhotra, Javed Sheikh and more.
