Taliban hang on Afghan cinema

There is very little talk about the Afghanistan cinema. Surprisingly, no specific conversation has ever been heard in India, while India’s historical and mythological relations with Afghanistan have been very deep. Rabindranath Tagore’s story first Bangla on Kabuliwala (1957) In Tapan Sinha and later Hindi (1961) Many Indian directors including Hemen Gupta have made successful films in the film. Hollywood’s The Kite Runner in Afghanistan (2007) From Bollywood’s Dharmatma (Feroz Khan), 1975), Inscribed Witness (Mukul Anand, 1992) Hikabul Express (Kabir Khan, 2006), And many films have been made. Indian films made in Afghanistan have never been good enough to discuss them.

The credit for bringing cinema to Afghanistan is its king (Amir) Habibullah Khan (1901-1919) Goes to those who first showed some films from the projector in raj darbar. The projector was then called the magical lantern there. But for the first time in the city of Paghman near Kabul for the general public in 1923, I mention the screening of a silent film. first afghan film love and friendship ( .1946) It is believed. 1990 In the Civil War and 1996 After the Taliban came to power, it was completely banned from making and watching cinema.

The talk of films in world cinema started when famous filmmaker Mohsin Makhmalamaf’s film Kandahar (2001) 20 More than were screened at film festivals. The film first drew worldwide attention to Afghanistan, an almost forgotten country. later his daughter’s film at five in the afternoon (2003) There was also a buzz in which an Afghan girl goes to school against her family’s wishes and one day dreams of becoming the President of Afghanistan. The film is titled the poem by famous Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorka.

In the true sense if an Afghan film has made it to the most important place in world cinema so far, He is Siddique Bermak ‘s Osama ( 2003)। The film won awards not only at the Cannes Film Festival but also at several film festivals, walki isne 39 He also traded millions of dollars. Then comes Atiq Rahimi’s film Earth and Ashes next year ( Khakestar-o-Khak, 2004) Whose World Premiere 57 The un-rotten regard section of the Cannes Film Festival took place. The film that is then discussed is the round face of Iranian filmmaker Wahid moussen ( the ) .2011)। Afghanistan is currently in the news for the departure of US and Allied forces and Taliban occupation.

The Taliban have almost destroyed the Afghan film industry. It is surprising to see that most of the films made in Afghanistan are cinematic resistance to Taliban radical Muslim ideas. Siddique Bermak’s film Osama is the story of a thirteen-year-old girl (Marina Golbahari) in the Taliban regime who works as a boy to support her family and names herself Osama.

One day Osama was captured when the Taliban caught the boys and sent them to an Islamic training camp. She is eventually forced to marry an old Ayyash. In the final scene, we see the old man taking a bath in a tank full of hot water. The tank’s water is steaming and Osama, who is imprisoned nearby, is trembling with fear. What will Taliban rule be like, for women and others, We can see an example of this in this film?

Iranian filmmaker Wahid Moussen ‘s legal faces ( 2011) Based on a true incident in which people saved prints of many rare films from Taliban attacks by playing with their lives. Ashraf Khan, a hysterical cinema lover, ran a cinema hall called Gol Chehre which was burnt to death by the Taliban. They want to re-settle this cinema hall. With the help of the director of the Afghan Film Archive, he hardly goes to Iran and brings a man who can put a projector to show films.

The performance of Satyajit Rai’s film Chess Player inaugurates the cinema hall round face. But as soon as the film starts, the Taliban bomb the cinema hall. They kill Ashraf Khan, The film issues a fatwa to burn all the files in the archive. Dr. Rukhsara, a widow working at the red cross hospital, plans to save rare films of the archive. Even in the terrible moments of the Taliban era, rukhsara does not give up.

After the elimination of the Taliban by US forces, Rukhsara, with the help of Iranian cine experts and director of the Afghan film Archive, once again builds round-faced cinema halls and inaugurates Satyajit Rai’s film Chess Player. The film also reveals how obsessed it is with Indian films in Afghanistan. At present, Afghanistan is once again under Taliban rule. The art of his full power, literature, Cinema, and secular culture is at risk of being destroyed.
