Sin City inspiration for Allah Ke Banday
There is Hollywood inspiration for Bollywood's very own Allah Ke Banday which is aiming for a late October release. Since the film is a gritty tale of children taking to crime, it required an edgy narrative for itself. While debutant writer-director-actor Faruk Kabir promises that and a lot more in his dramatic affair, he has also created a graphic music video to lend out the right mood and feel of the film. The song is titled 'Maula' and has been self confessedly designed on the same lines as Hollywood's graphic tale Sin City (2005).
When released, Sin City had met with instant diverse reactions due to the graphic nature of violence and sex. The film, though carrying a comic undertone to it, was mainly for the adult segment of audience and went on to become a cult flick over a period of time. In fact it stands amongst one of the most studied movies of all times and had led to quite a few cheap imitations globally with far lesser success.
"Ours is a tribute to that genre though", Faruk is quick to add, "You would see a distinct (Quentin) Tarantino touch to it, something which was a conscious approach. Of course the video is quite real and disturbing so it has to be seen with caution. I don't mind that though; after all it was intentional."
While Chirantan Bhatt has scored music for this song, Sarim Momin has written the lyrics. However, this is not the only music video that Faruk has shot for his flick. "That's right", says Faruk, "We have shot another music video with Kailash Kher. It is an association with UNICEF. This one took its own time to be done since it features children."
Whoever said that it was a child's play to make a film!
