The ace director is back with a new screenplay on board.
The trailer of the film was launched recently.
While there are many interesting anecdotes related to film, one such thing was how Panne came in existence and what exactly its different.
Beaming with pride, Ram Alladi opens up on why he chose to narrate the tales of independence through Panne, and how it is different from other similar movies based on freedom and independence.
*Talking about the same, Ram Alladi said*, Honestly speaking this film doesn’t discuss anything before August 14th, 1947 in other words it doesn’t talk about the efforts of great men or women who fought for independent India. I wrote the story only from the point of how independence is being taken into consideration, not how it is served to us. And how is it classified? Is it social or individual freedom?
Yes, there were numerous films based on the nation’s independence struggle, unlike them the uniqueness of PANNE is the difference between social and individual freedom and women are not cosmetic place holder in my movie
