A lesson from history told with complete focus on patriotism. The sole aim is to display the conviction of our freedom fighters. Even though it doesn't have any other emotional connect, it is a lesson we shouldn't miss.
Chittagong has been in production for quite a while now. And Ashutosh Gowariker's Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se came and went. With a more, if I may say so, 'serious' team at work here, hopefully we will see a lot more in terms of deeper characterization and flair in narration. That one made you feel too, but it was solely due to the story they wanted to narrate, a story that was already written.
I hope Chittagong will do more than that and engage us with the film-making departments too. I am hoping for a little more than a history lesson, a little more than episode after episode sewed together. What is most intriguing about Chittagong is the focus on this one student who seems to be in the center of the film.
They have at their disposal an awesome cast. The lead actors that are soon becoming usual suspects in Anurag Kashyap films - Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Raj Kumar Yadav, Manoj Bajpai. Certainly worth looking forward to just because of these names.
