New Update

Nagraj Manjule and Amitabh Bachchan's Jhund released in cinemas on March 4. Let’s see what the Janta has to say about the film!

Nagraj Manjule who also gave us the spectacular Sairat has brought us another amazing piece of storytelling, Jhund with none other than the living legend, Amitabh Bachchan. It's based on the life of Vijay Barse, a retired sports teacher who puts in immense effort to keep the children and young adults of the slum away from drugs and other malpractices. Instead, he makes them channel their energies into football and creates an NGO called Slum Soccer which allows children from the slums to form football teams and play against each other. It highlights how the kids of the slum live and go through these nitty-gritties of life.

It was such a delight to watch Amitabh Bachchan on the big screen after a while and see him portray such an important role and contribute to helping such a story reach the audience. The film is written and directed by the highly talented Nagraj Manjule and is produced by T-Series and Tandav Film. The music is given by the evergreen Ajay- Atul. It also has the dynamic Sairat duo Akshay Thosar and Rinku Rajguru lighting up the screen with their brilliance once again. And of course all the new talent in this film, Ankush Gedam, Babu Kshatriya, Jerico Robert, Raziya Kazi, Kartik Uikey, Sayli Patil, Allen Patrick, to name a few, playing crucial characters in the movie.
