“Ae Watan Mere Watan” – A Brief Introduction to the film by Yogendra Yadav

I normally do not write on films. But “Ae Watan Mere Watan” is such a special movie that it deserves some extraordinary interventions and appeals. The film has been released on Amazon Prime Video. It has been written by Darab Farooqui, a close friend and associate in the realm of ideas and ideological preferences. Kanan Iyer is the director of the movie.

The film is inspired by the story of “Congress Radio” of 1942 and the struggle of Usha Mehta in setting it up and sustaining it. In this film, Ram Manohar Lohia appears in a very important role on screen for the first time in the history of Indian cinema. The film is indeed historical, but this is a very important film for our times too! This film gives us the words and ideas to address our contemporary challenges. But more than that it gives us hope and self-confidence.

Many scenes of the film are mirrors of today’s world. You will feel as if you are watching today’s film and not that of 1942. The situation the country is going through today is indeed similar to the one that existed during the British era. The very same dictatorship, cruelty and inhumanity.

Make sure that not only you but your entire family watches this movie. In this time marked by false and malicious propaganda, this film will impart in you courage, energy and patience in many ways. This is our film. It is a film of our thinking, a film of our hopes, a film of our struggle, a film of our ideology. It is our responsibility to take its message across India and the globe.
