The Good Road, is directed by debut feature filmmaker Gyan Correa. In its story based around Kachchh, Gujarat, The Good Road is a journey of three sets of people who are travelling on a highway, cutting through the Banni, bordering the Rann. They are all on a journey to achieve their respective pursuits, but over the next twenty-four hours, will discover something altogether different, something new and unexpected about their lives.
This film seems to be produced with a mallafied intention by particular entities, linked with the group known for its apathy towards anything relating ‘Gujarat’ and ‘Gujarati. NFDC, a government run body for Indian film development has chosen this film for the Oscar nomination. This film has no audience in Gujarat. It was distributed only for one show a day for a week and that too after the nomination body found about this error. Maker of this film doesn’t even bother to promote it properly among audience of Gujarat, forget the critics. Film was ready long ago and conspirators of Gujarat succeeded in their intention by promoting it with NFDC. How can NFDC send this kind of rubbish film with a fake story and intentional dramatization to the global platform like Oscar? And that too after ignoring a beautiful film like ‘Lunch-Box.’
We know that Gujarat is developing with good pace in all fields. In India’s national election 2014, Gujarat is going to play a major role with its Prime Minister candidate declared. A strong lobby supporting now ruling party is spending it’s day and night to sabotage the good value earned by this state. They want to show the bad image of Gujarat at global level. By doing this they want to deny the reality of peace, prosperity and harmony of Gujarat.
Gujarat and especially the ‘Kutchh’ region pictured in the film are well known for its honesty and primitive Indian culture. People of India and world will soon realize it. I want to warn the viewers [if any], this is not real Gujarat, come and see by yourself.
