Based on the real life story of freedom fighter Gour Hari Das, Gour Hari Dastaan -The Freedom File is a movie that will make you sit and think about the grim state of affairs that has paralyzed our country. Directed by Anant Mahadevan and written by renowned journalist C.P. Surendran, the movie is an inspiring and touching story that traces the struggle of Gour Hari who has to fight the system to prove his identity.
Vinay Pathak is essaying the central role while Konkona Sen Sharma will be seen as his wife. Ranvir Shorey and Divya Dutta also feature in important roles. The movie has already gone into many international film festivals where it was appreciated by the critics and the jury. It will be released on August 14 this year. A telling tale on the inefficiency of our bureaucracy, the film tells you about an unsung hero who initially fought with the British for independence and later had to fight with his own government. Ironical and cynical, Gour Hari Dastaan is also optimistic.
It shows the determination of a common man who will fight tooth and nail, no matter what. A nice tribute to the Gandhian philosophy of crusade for truth, the film will definitely inspire the youth and also treat the audience to fine performances by equally fine actors. Konkona will be seen after a long time and Vinay Pathak will also surprise you with his powerful role and mind you, you will be completely floored by his acting. So, get your tickets booked. It is “once-in-a-lifetime” kind of movie that should not be missed at any cost.
