This project was not as easy as it seemed. As it comes in the category of cinema and both the eras of 1940s as well as 1970s were to be shown, many things were needed and the entire team made many efforts with limited resources. According to eminent Pandey, he does not have any office. This is a field series. A lot of effort went into directing during the course of assembling the locations, casting, logistics. Not a single scene has been repeated in this series.
Azad Hind Fauj didn’t do anything
Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is one of his favorite revolutionaries in history, according to the director and writer of the series (The Lost Prime Minister) Prashant Pandey. This series is to make people aware that India got freedom due to the significant contribution made by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and Azad Hind Fauj and give youth a chance to recognize the real heroes and reason behind India’s freedom .
The mystery of death has not been solved yet
Three commissions have been formed so far to solve the mystery of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s death. First and foremost the Shah Nawaz Commission, followed by the Khosla Commission headed by GD Khosla, both generally agreed on the plane crash theory of Netaji’s death. Even Netaji’s brother Suresh Bose himself was part of the Khosla Commission but he never agreed with the conclusion of both the commissions regarding Netaji’s death in the plane crash. He reportedly said that the findings were wrong. The story of this series begins with Suresh Bose’s initiative to hire a private investigator to start an investigation that will reveal the truth behind the mystery of Netaji’s death.
Netaji should have been the prime minister
The name of the series ‘The Lost Prime Minister’ itself suggests that Netaji should have been our Prime Minister instead of being a part of the government as he has contributed much more to the freedom of our country than any other revolutionary. There is a great need to change the perception in the minds of the people that we got freedom without violence because the Azad Hind Fauj attacked Kohima and Imphal, after which the Indian soldiers in the British army revolted against them. Azad Hind Fauj has done many movements, compared to those movements which are considered to be the main cause of independence, they are of lesser importance.
The series is streaming on MX Player, Hungama Play, Airtel Xstream and Vi Movies & TV platforms.
