Director Digpal Lanjekar’s ‘Subhedar’ will release on August 18, he says there is a historical reason behind naming the film ‘Subhedar’. Read on!
‘Subhedar’ movie is currently creating a buzz in the Marathi entertainment industry. The film stars Chinmay Mandlekar, Ajay Purkar and Mrinal Kulkarni in lead roles. ‘Subhedar’ is the fifth film in the Shree Shivraj Ashtak series. Earlier released films like ‘Farzand’, ‘Pawankhind’, ‘Fateshikast’, ‘Sher Shivraj’ got tremendous response from the audience. Now director Digpal Lanjekar is going to present the history of Subhedar Tanaji Malusare and the Battle of Kondha to the audience in the film ‘Subhedar’.
In an interview with LokSatta, Digpal Lanjekar revealed the special reason behind naming the film ‘Subhedar’.
Talking about the film ‘Subhedar’, Digpal Lanjekar said, “Tanajirao Malusare was an extraordinary warrior. Apart from being a brave warrior, Tanajirao was also very clever in administrative work. Many roads leading to Konkan were completed under his supervision. He was also partially involved in the construction of Sindhudurg fort. An attempt has been made in ‘Subhedar’ to show how he developed as an administrator under the guidance of Maharaj and Ausaheb, how he worked for Swarajya.”
Digpal Lanjekar further said, “The special reason for naming the film ‘Subhedar’ is that as ‘Subhedar’ Tanaji Malusare handled the dual responsibilities of ‘administrative’ and ‘military’. It is the only instance in history of a single person being the ‘subhad’ of both types or sections.”
At last Digpal Lanjekar said, “It’s not going to be a decent film like you usually see in a biopic. In this you find important emotional stages like, the relationship of Subhedar and Ausaheb, how was their relationship with Shivaji Maharaj? These things will be seen. Tanaji Malusare had a strong relationship with Ausaheb and Shivaraya, so he did not hesitate to sacrifice for Swarajya, from where did he get this power? An attempt has been made to show this through this film.”
