After making festival rounds, Nana Patekar/Rekha starrer YATRA may finally release soon.
Ready for months and originally slated for release last year, the movie also came close to be released on the same day as Aishwarya Rai's UMRAO JAAN. At that point of time, it was widely speculated that the original Umrao Jaan Rekha would be seeing a box office clash with J.P. Dutta's Umrao Jaan - Aishwarya Rai.
The clash never happened and now with Aishwarya Rai blissfully married, Rekha would be seen yet again in a courtesan act in YATRA.
As per director Ghose, 'YATRA is a multi-layered film with the writer Dashrath [Nana Patekar] traveling from one place to another. There are two layers to the film - the visualization of the filmmaker and imagination of the writer. So, the creative processes of both come to light. The dichotomy between fact and fiction is also depicted because, in any writing, you combine fact with fiction – you base your ideas on things that are real, sometimes unreal and sometimes surreal. It's a combination!'
The film is about how fiction meets the facts; YATRA has some exquisite cinematography and costumes that create a breathtaking world, reverberating with Urdu music. Also today's generation gets a chance to see Rekha in the role of a courtesan, something that she immortalized in 'Umrao Jaan'.
Award-wining director Goutam Ghose is touted to have elicited powerful performances from his acclaimed cast. Ghose's sharp scripting and direction gradually build the drama into an electrifying sequence of events where fact and fiction tensely oscillate.
