Mumbai, Sept 3 (ANI): Bollywood film ”Tahaan”, which is a fable about an eight-year-old boy ”Tahaan” and his donkey, is all set to hit theaters on Friday.
The film shot extensively in the picturesque town Pahalgam in Kashmir.
The makers of the film said that ”Tahaan” does not directly depict militancy or violence in the region, but deals with these issues from the point of view of its eight-year-old protagonist, Tahaan, who embarks on a quest to bring back his donkey ”Birbal” after it is sold to repay a loan.
The boy’’s journey across the snowy landscape is fraught with danger, including an encounter with a teenager who promises to help him get the donkey — but only if Tahaan carries a grenade and a package to the other side of the mountains.
Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, who is part of the movie, said that he is sure that the cinemagoers having taste for good films will appreciate the film.
“It is good film and the audience will enjoy. I wouldn”t like to comment on its commercial success or viability, but people who appreciate good films will enjoy it for sure,” said Anupam Kher.
Besides Anupam Kher, director Santosh Sivan’’s film stars Purav Bhandare, Rahul Bose, Sarika, Victor Banerjee and Rahul Khanna.
Rahul Bose described the film as a world-class movie and felt proud to be associated with it.
“I think audience will get a nice feeling by the end of this film that they have seen something that is excellent. It’’s a world cinema film and international film made from India,” said Rahul Bose. The film is produced under the banner of ”I Dream Productions”. (ANI)
