Iconic Chandrakant Productions Pvt. Ltd’s RAJA SHIVCHHATRAPATI releases on 13th April

Keeping in mind with the overwhelming response and constant demand of the viewers of the popular television serial ‘Raja Shivchhatrapati’, Iconic Chandrakant Productions Pvt. Ltd (ICPPL) to launch RAJA SHIVCHHATRAPATI – the film on big screen on coming April 13, 2012.

The film was first announced on the auspicious day of Gudi Padwa – a fitting tribute to the glorious chapter in the Indian history.

The history of India is incomplete without the history of Marathas and Shivaji is the centre of that history. Shivaji advocated the ideology of Hindavi swarajya. He established a competent and progressive civil rule with the help of well regulated and disciplined military and well structured administrative organizations. His respect for all religions made him a truly great king.

The television show which was aired for over 200 hours was shot by epic technology with a vision of film quality output. It was a mammoth task for the team of ICPPL to convert the entire show into a film of 2 hrs 14 minutes. Except shoot, the complete technical process had to be reworked like Dolby Digital, sound mix, color corrections, graphics to mention few. RAJA SHIVCHHATRAPATI, the film includes eight major incidences of Shivaji which created history like Birth of Shivaji, oath taken for Hindiva Swarajya at Rohideshwar temple, defeat of Afzal Khan, siege of Panhala by Siddi Jauhar, battle of Pavan Khind, attack on Shaista Khan, arrest in Agra and escape and Coronation.

The film comprises of hair raising four songs and will soon launch a Music DVD along with the most memorable dialogues and title track of the television show.

Talking on the launch, Mr Nitin Chandrakant Desai, said ‘From the time I remember, in my school days I have always been fascinated by Shivaji Maharaj. Till date I’ve read a number of books and worked on several projects, stage shows on Shivaji Maharaj including ‘Raja Shivchhatrapati’, a TV serial and got record rating from viewers. We are blessed with the golden opportunity to make this epic movie and a huge privilege. We continue to live by abiding to Maharaj’s core values as he has laid strong emphasis on culture, which is an integral part of every individual’s life. The desire for the launch of the movie shows our love for this great Warrior. And we are not going to stop here. In our effort to take Shivaji’s values and culture globally, we have started working on a big International 3D movie on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in Hindi and English for the global audience.”

For the past 400 years, this great Maratha warrior has been a source of inspiration and pride to the past generations and will continue to inspire millions of youngsters in the future…

    I was thinking that there were so many incidents in Raje’s life which is tremendously awesome, but its not possible that to show all the incidents in 3 hrs movie… So the movie should be in 2 or 3 different parts… The realising gap should be around 6 months…

    Action sequence I had seen in 300 movie… Awesome… As you are making movie on international project its better to get some knowledge from technicians of this movie… Not to make any compromise…

    The main characters r perfect for Raje’s, Jijabai’s, Shahjiraje’s n Aurangzeb’s role… But still some popular actors from Bollywood should be there in movie..

    Its good that you are making movie in Hindi n English. But jo dialogues Marathi me sunke puri body ke ruvaate khade hote hena vo maza sirf Hindi m nahi aayegi… there should be a tribute to RAJE by dubbing the movie specially in MARATHI…
