The much awaited Tigmanshu Dhulia
film ‘Raag Desh’ is all set to release on July 28th, 2017. Expected to be a crossover film, the film marries the historical authenticity with entertaining cinema, a genre much missed in Bollywood. Set in the backdrop of the famous ‘Red Fort Trials’, the film recreates the era of last days of freedom struggle in India, where the battles were being fought on borders, on streets, in media and curiously enough, in the court room.
The film captures the courtroom drama of the trials conducted by the British government in 1945 against the top brass of the Indian National Army, established by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
The trials made India aware of the heroic deeds and struggles of the Ina, which was till then suppressed by the British authorities through strong armed press censorship. As the trial progressed, the entire nation was galvanized into the final call for independence,
