Reality-based films are lined up for March release

Following on the heels of "Jaago" is debutant director Shrey Shrivastava's "Insaaf". Like "Jaago", "Insaaf" too is based on the real life incident in Bihar in which a politician was accused of repeatedly raping a civil servant's wife.

Slated for release Feb 20, the film will mark the return of model-turned-actress Namrata Shirodkar to the silver screen after a long break. She essays the role of the traumatised wife while Sanjay Suri plays her husband.

It remains to be seen whether "Insaaf" will tread the delicate balance between espousing the cause of rape victims and box-office gains.

"Insaaf" will be Sanjay Suri's second successive film based on real-life incidents after "Dhoop", in which he portrayed a soldier - Anuj Nayyar -- who died in the Kargil war of 1999.

"Dhoop" was about the young martyr's parents and fiancée, played by Gul Panag, who were forced to come to terms with his untimely death and at the same time battle against bureaucracy and corruption to get the compensation due to them.

Though "Doop" was a box-office dud, its critical acclaim set the stage for small-budget films inspired from real life.

For instance, there was "Kagaar". It was inspired by Mumbai police officer Daya Nayak who went by the sobriquet "encounter specialist" for killing a large number of gangsters in gun battles.

Two other reality-based films are lined up for March release. They are Ashok Pandit's "Sheen", about the plight of Kashmiri Pandits after the rise of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir, and Manish Jha's "Matrabhoomi" on the life of rural women.
