Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga - a satire on spiralling prices
Anshul Sharma's directorial debut 'Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga' is a satire on the common man's daily struggle against spiralling expenditure. The first-time filmmaker who has worked as an associate on 'Phas Gaye Re Obama' (2010), says, "The prices of essential goods have shot up, making life difficult even for the upper middle class. Indians, however, have an uncanny ability to keep smiling even in the most adverse conditions. Also, they don't mind laughing at themselves. My film is a satirical take on this national phenomenon."
Sharma feels that writers Rupesh Thapliyal and Vijay Manral have come up with a fresh concept — a family crushed under the burden of mehngaai. He explains, "They come up with an ingenious idea to deal with the problem. But rather than overcome it, they get entangled in a worse situation."
Produced by Ashok Pandey, the film features Sanjay Mishra, Pragati, Vishwa Mohan Badola, Ranjan Chhabra, Disha, Pramod Pathak, Zakir Hussain and Sitaram Panchal.
Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga, produced by Revel Films, releases March 8.
