The very talented OMG 2 director Amit Rai’s last film the haunting Road To Sangam was released 13 years ago. Road To Sangam was a Gandhian parable done up in shades that were at once, pristine, noble, gentle and funny. The imaginative plot about the Mahatma's ashes belatedly being taken out of Allahabad to be scattered in the Ganga obtained its strength from the moral frailty of the times that we live in. Miraculously while constructing a heart-warming morality tale, the debutant writer-director managed to keep the tone purely and strictly non-judgemental.
OMG 2 director Amit Rai appeals, “Please remove the ‘adults only’ tag from my film”
Among the many virtues in this frail but strong tale of two communities that need hard and immediate lessons in co-existence is the detailed eye for locations. The streets and rooftops of humble middle-class homes in Allahabad were shot by cinematographer Dharam Gulati with a keen eye for the teeming crowds peeping out of ramshackle windows, which have seen better days.
Road To Sangam shows us that the road to salvation for a wounded and dying civilisation is to cut through the tangled web of politics and religion to try to a find a common ground between the Hindu and Muslim viewpoint without compromising or hurting either.
And now, 13 years later, Amrit is back with another thought-provoking film OMG 2. When asked him about his long hiatus from direction, and Amrit said honestly, “No one gave me any work in between.”
Now that Amit is back with another gently persuasive reformative drama, his only sorrow is it limited audience spectrum. “This is a film about a problem that plagues teenagers. They must watch it. Please remove the ‘adults only’ tag from my film,” he said.
