The new rendition of "Karar oi louho kopat" in "Pippa" by Rahman has angered not just the family of the poet but also the artistic community in West Bengal and Bangladesh.
In Pippa, directed by Raja Krishna Menon, the 28-year-old actor steps into the shoes of Captain Balram Singh Mehta of India’s 45 Cavalry regiment.
The rendition of 'Karar oi louho kopat' (Iron bars of a jail) was released in war movie 'Pippa', starring Ishaan Khatter and Mrunal Thakur in the lead roles.
Pippa safely floats away from that dizzying whirlpool of propagandist cinema. Or, maybe, it is just more palatable compared to what is being sold in the market.
