Fans React To Rajkumar Santoshi’s Gandhi Godse - Ek Yudh
Rajkumar Santoshi’s ‘Gandhi Godse – Ek Yudh’ Teaser Attracts Mixed Responses

The movie has been directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, who dons the director’s hate after almost a decade

A teaser of Gandhi Godse – Ek Yudh was released on January 2, 2023, much to the delight of fans. As the title suggests, the story is about Nathuram Godse and Mahatma Gandhi. The script is reportedly a work of fiction, and the makers show a conversation between Godse and Gandhi. For the unversed, the former had planned an assassination attack on the father of the nation on January 30, 1948. He didn’t believe in Gandhi’s views and ideologies of non-violence, especially towards the Muslims. This was in 1949, when India and Pakistan went to war over Kashmir. 


The role of Gandhi has been played by Deepak Antani, who played a similar role in a 2016 movie titled, Gandhiji My Mentor. On the other hand, Chinmay Mandlekar plays the role of Godse. He was seen last in Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files where he essayed the role of a militant named Farooq Malik Bitta.

The movie has been directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, who dons the director’s hate after almost a decade. His last offering was Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, which starred Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D’Cruz in the lead roles. The music of the film has been helmed by AR Rahman, who collaborates with Santoshi after two decades. They had last worked in two films — 2000’s Pukar and 2002’s The Legend of Bhagat Singh.  


In an interview, Santoshi averred that it was alarming to witness brain-dead comedy films doing well even in today’s day and age. The filmmaker stated, “The comedies should be coherent, not gags strung together. I also made a comedy, Andaz Apna Apna. It had a clean plot and a coherent narrative. I like to laugh. I’m a big fan of Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers, and Buster Keaton. In Hollywood, they come up with intelligent comedies. In Bollywood, they just lift scenes and jokes from English films. And then to not get hauled up for copying, they put their own ideas into the rip-offs. So, the comedies look like a mish-mash.” 

He further touched upon the strategy of using religious angles in films. “I feel if a filmmaker addresses issues from his heart, no one minds it. In a country where we’ve had a Muslim president and have Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan as icons, Muslims don’t need to feel isolated. Anyone talking about division on a religious basis is creating mischief. And I’m not scared of saying so,” he said.

The film has been slated to release on January 26 and faces a heavy clash with Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, which is scheduled for a release on January 25, 2023.
