A young London-based filmmaker happens to find her grandfather’s diaries which narrate his experiences as a British jailor in India during the Raj. Excited about these memoirs, she arrives in Delhi and casts a group of young friends to play the roles of legendary Indian revolutionaries—Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Ramprasad Bismil and Ashfaqullah Khan—in a documentary film, called ‘The Young Guns of India’. The complex narrative in this compelling film interweaves two strands, one set in modern India and the other in an India of the first half of the 20th century with dexterity and yet apparent effortlessness. The shooting script is going to be published for the first time, supplemented with exclusive behind-the-scenes stills, storyboards and other visuals from the film and a foreword by writer-director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and an afterword by writer Prasoon Joshi. It is an essential read for film students and a collector’s item for movie buffs.Printed Pages: 266.
