ATHARVA MOVIES PRESENTS ITS ITS SECOND FILM “ BARAD”
After “RETI” . This is a SECOND PRESENTATION OF ATHARVA MOVIES ” BARAD”
“BARAD” TRAILER RELEASED ON MAHARASHTRA DAY, ( “BARAD” MARATHI MOVIE TO RELEASE IN JUNE 2016 ALL MAHARASHTRA.)
BARAD a barren land of fertile dreams.
Alkud (M) is a typical small village in a Maharashtra with an agrarian economy and a simple life, like any other village. The urban way of living fascinates, but the economy doesn’t allow.
The story starts with a survey conducted by a government agency at Bardi, the barren land adjacent to the village. Anna, a village veteran, is called for, as a witness to the survey. Anna enquires about the survey. The information by the officer contains some crucial words in English. Anna and Appa try to conclude a meaning…….. guessing remains their only access to what this survey is all about.
Anna is respectable personality of Alkud (M) . He was active politician few years back. Unable to cope up with the new way of politics, isolates himself from active politics ..…. but always kept himself socially active. His efforts showed when Alkud was recognized by the Government as a non-quarrelsome village.
Anna’s guessings about the survey transforms to fear, the fear of acquisition of land, which compels him to fence his piece of land. This simple act becomes a genesis of rumour… Guess transforms to gossip, gossip to rumour and rumour to a news…!! The news of a proposed industrial zone at Alkud spreads throughout the Manjari legislative constituency……!
Arunbhau, sarpanch of Alkud, who’s an active and a typical new line politician, learns about this and further propagates it to MLA Waghmare.. Now Waghmare tries to confirm the news immediately, as he plans to declare the same officially as early as possible; to show his efforts for new industrial zone.This, he thinks, will fetch him great political mileage.
But unfortunately, the news leaks to Walzade, Minister of Industry, who belongs to the same district. For his ambitious political dreams, Walzade wants to retain all legislative assembly seats, for his party and faction. In the last election, his sole loss came at Manjari..!! So Waghmare was always there on the top of his hunt-list..!! He gets all the information about survey and its significance but for his political game he just holds the reality.
This game of political one-upmanship at every step becomes fodder for rumour..!! Waghmare starts buying land in Alkud.. His target of 200 acres creates a wave of speculation..!! The non-fertile and barren Bardi turns gold..!! This wave disturbs the harmony of the village. By the time this political game ends, the village lost its human relationship pattern and simplicity of being.
A warlike scoundrel spreads all over, which hampers the community thread. This forms the core of the story… A story which has parallels in every society across the world… Alkud, solely coincidentally being the stage here.
TANAJI M. GHADGE – DIRECTOR’S NOTE :
I always think that creativity in cinema is, using an imperfect medium to portray perfect message. Our life surrounds thousand and one things. The happening around us always puts an impact on our very being. This impact compels to express oneself.
I have been working as a Director since last 10 years. Many social issues influence me. But my way of expression was light and humour. I came across the story of insane evil practices in land dealing business. I really moved by the story of land dealing and evil practices therein. As I get deeper in the issue I found that the evil is everywhere. I have decided to go for cinematic expression of the issue with all its evil. Further research enlighten us that possession of land, selling & buying of land, commission agents, political involvement and speculations changes pattern of social interaction and behavior. This colour of the story fascinated me.
I have tried to catch the thread. A drama at Alkud (small village in Maharashtra) portrays all colours of the issue and the society at a large. Happenings in Alkud has regional limits but what the story emits has parallels all over the world. I have tried to put it authentically. BARAD I think is a film of contemporary society and changing values. But it definitely has good shelf life as far as the social behavior concerns.
