Indira Gandhi’s Emergency speech is now a song

The makers of period drama San Pachhattar have decided to incorporate the speech given by India’s first lady Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Set in the era of emergency, the film stars Kay Kay Menon in the lead.

In 1975 Indira Gandhi had imposed emergency in India and the country came to know about it via an announcement at an unscheduled early hour’s speech of Indira Gandhi at All India Radio. This Indira Gandhi’s deceleration of speech has been used in Kay Kay Menon’s forthcoming release San Pachhattar. This is the first time where this speech that was given by Indira Gandhi at AIR in the year 1975 is used in the film as a song. “The audio rights of the famous Indira Gandhi Emergency speech is taken from All India Radio and the video right is taken from Film Division of India as they are the sole rights holder,” said producer Kabir Lovee. Titled ‘Panic’, the track is composed by Sandeep Madhvan ofDetective Byomkesh Bakshi fame. We hear that creating this one wasn’t a cake walk. It took Sandeep apparently 3 months and some 15 versions to set the right song for the film. It is being said that the makers bought the footage for Rs. 59,316.

San Pachhattar revolves around a deal of the first mobile phone (prototype) being brought to India amidst the backdrop of emergency. Not only the concept of the film is different but makers have not left any stone unturned to get the film, the credit it deserves. Directed by Navneet Behal, San Pachhattar also stars Pravessh Rana, Kirti Kulhari, and Tom Alter among others.
