The Kingmaker of the Mughal Empire, an Indian short film, will soon be released on various internet platforms for public view.
Earlier, the world screening the film was held in the Garifuna Indigenous International Film Festival on 27 May 2018 at Venice, Los Angeles, USA. The film has also been selected in 2 more international festivals in UK and Rome. A number of international film festivals have invited the film for submission in their program.
This historical docudrama chronicles the life of a kingmaker who influenced, controlled and changed the reign of seven Mughal emperors in medieval India.
The present work is an eye-opening historical truth for the world. The hidden past of a kingmaker has been brought to the screens for the first time in an attempt to relay his messages and achievements during the Mughal Era in India.
Indian history has seen many warriors and freedom fighters but has rarely come across such an individual who was able to control the fate of seven Mughal emperors. This 300 years old true story shows the modern thinking of Raja Ratan Chand in terms of women empowerment, education, and equal rights for all the citizens. Raja Ratan Chand was a close associate of Syed brothers and the team is known as the Kingmaker of the Mughal Empire.
This docudrama is highly relevant in today's context as it highlights the issues concerning gender discrimination, human rights, education, and women empowerment. The film is meant to encourage its viewers to have an open mind and to follow the path of righteousness no matter what. The drama also mirrors some of the hardships faced by non-Muslims during the rule of Mughal Emperors.
Dr. Avnish Rajvanshi, Producer of the film said that utmost care has been taken to make sure that historical facts are presented in the right spirit and context. Eminent Indian historian Professor Vighnesh Tyagi, who has spent several years in research on this subject, was consulted during the making of the film in addition to various other authentic resources. The script has been written by well-known Hindi/Urdu author, Musharraf Alam Zauqi while Irfan Jaami has directed the film.
The film has subtitles in English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Arabic, Danish, and Mandarin while French subtitles will be added soon.
