The trailer of Kunal Kapoor's forthcoming film Raag Desh was unveiled by the makers of the film today. Raag Desh stars Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Mohit Marwah in lead roles and is based on the Indian National Army trials during World War II. The two-and-a-minute trailer shows the famous Red Fort trial of the three Indian National Army officers Colonel Prem Sehgal, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon, and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan, who were charged with 'waging war against the King-Emperor' and handed over to Japanese Imperial Army. Raag Desh has been directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, who helmed the National Award winning film Paan Singh Tomar, starring Irrfan Khan.

Raag Desh talks about the contribution of Indian National Army, which was set up by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, in India's independence.

Indian National Army was declared to be the army of Subhash Chandra Bose's Arzi Hukumat-e-Azad Hind (the Provisional Government of Free India). Under his leadership, the Indian National Army drew ex-prisoners and thousands of civilian volunteers from the Indian refugee population in Malaya (present-day Malaysia) and Burma. They also fought along with the Imperial Japanese Army against the British and Commonwealth forces in the campaigns in Burma, Imphal and Kohima.

The first teaser of Raag Desh was unveiled by the makers of the film on June 23.
 


Speaking to news agency IANS, filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia said that he was 'fascinated to know that India did not get freedom by dialogue and negotiation.'

"Being a student of history, it was fascinating for me to know that we did not get our freedom by dialogue and negotiation that we have been reading for so long. It's not," IANS quoted Tigmanshu Dhulia as saying.

The filmmaker added that his film 'doesn't deal with the mysterious death of Subhas Chandra Bose.'

"We all know that the winner writes the history. In this film, I explored the contribution of the INA in our freedom movement. But no, to kill everyone's interest, Raag Desh does not deal with Bose's mysterious death," Tigmanshu Dhulia told IANS.

Raag Desh is presented by Rajya Sabha TV and produced by Gurdeep Singh Sappal. The film is scheduled to release in theatres on July 28.
