Film on Maoists to be screened today in Ranchi

The film, produced by the Jharkhand Police Nayi Disha Creative, will be screened at a multiplex in Ranchi on Thursday.

The Jharkhand police will on Thursday screen a film on Maoism scripted by former DGP Rajeev Kumar. Titled Pratyavartan, the over two-hour film is about how there is “no point pursuing the flawed ideology of the Naxals”, said Kumar.

Shunted out after the Raghubar Das government took charge, Kumar is currently DG, Home Guards and Fire Services.

The film, produced by the Jharkhand Police Nayi Disha Creative, will be screened at a multiplex in Ranchi on Thursday. “A few of the cast members are from Bengal, the rest are all locals or policemen,” said Kumar. The director is from West Bengal.

Kumar said the idea of scripting a film came from a play that he worked on in August 2002, when he was DIG, Palamu. “The then DGP R R Prasad suggested that I should work on a play to expose the ideology and show the real face of these people,” he said. The play was staged in various Maoist-affected areas.
