Details of Mithila Makhaan

The initial idea of Mithila Makhaan came to me when I was working with an NGO during the Kosi floodings of 2008, I realised that Bihar needed people who can come back and work. So, the story which was formed during that time was about this guy who works abroad and comes back to his village in Mithila and do something.

Once Upon A Time In Bihar

Release Date: 2015


This story is based on real incidents, set in the year 2003 - 2004 in Buxar District of Bihar. It revolves around three characters Rajiv Kumar, an IAS aspirant, Sankar Pandey, a young graduate who was thrashed in Assam for taking Railway Board Exams, and a dreamy folk singer, Jeans, waiting to go to Mumbai, cut his album and become a star. Film opens in the month of March, 2005 with a riot scene in Patna. The mass outrage is because of conviction of Rajiv Kumar and Sankar Kumar Pandey. Whole Patna city has a cover of CRPF and several police Battalions. Story travels back to October - 2003 where the scene opens with a beautiful landscape of Bihar. It was the time when Bihar was reeling under a lot of problems related to electricity, roads, health services, education, crime, corruption, etc. Rajiv has come back to his village after failing several attempts at UPSC exams. He has to get his sister Arti, married. Rajiv's family is not so well to do. Arti is a "mangali", still they have managed to find a suitable groom for her. They need 4-5 lacs rupees to get her married. The boy's family prepones the marriage because their son gets a job abroad. Rajiv and his family comes under pressure because they have not been able to arrange money for the marriage. Rajiv comes to Patna for a better earning and arrange money but, he gets mugged one day and all his savings are looted. He comes back to his village with an injured body and a broken heart.
Sankar Pandey's story runs in the parallel. He is a fresh graduate. After he is beaten up in Guwahati, he has become more of a recluse and he could not understand why this happened to him. Why is it that in the same country he is not allowed to move and there are many people like him. His brother Bisnu wants Sankar to help him run the family. Sankar wants a govt. job, as this was his father's last wish. But soon he finds out that he would need to bribe for a government job. Sankar goes to Gorakhpur to earn that money, however, after working there for 4 months that company gets shut. He comes back heartbroken, but still hoping to arrange money for bribe and get the job. Jeans is an aspirant who dreams of becoming a big star as he is a self acclaimed folk singer. However, one day Jeans gets fired from his job. He has a young 6 year old sister. Jeans finds a job in the outskirts, with an abusive boss and half the salary of what he was getting previously. This was the time when Bihar was witnessing several crimes like kidnapping, murders and cast based carnages. Many times such news keeps appearing in news channels and newspapers. Finally when these three guys are not able to meet their needs honestly, they decide to commit crime for money. Their plan fails badly and they are imprisoned. When they come out of jail after 5 years, they see a changed Bihar.

Director's Note

nitinneerachandra
I am still discovering myself. I am trying to find me in this world and the world in me. Its a very spiritual process. Just like film making. “Film Making is a pure art”. As a film maker my responsibility is not only to make good Cinema but a better audience too. I believe that art choses you, not the other way round. The story of ONCE UPON A TIME IN BIHAR came to my mind when I was on my trip to the jungles of Rajamundhry in Andhra Pradesh. I don’t know what happened and one gist of story came to me. Cinema, like literature, represents a society. Be it any language, it does show the society and its culture, its habits, its dressings, its behaviors, its socio-economic and political conditions, gestures, postures, etc. ONCE UPON A TIME IN BIHAR is a film well written, researched and fully shot in Bihar. Having worked with big hindi film Directors, in India and abroad but the effort of making ONCE UPON A TIME IN BIHAR was completely a new experience. I believe that audience wants to see good film. So, here is ONCE UPON A TIME IN BIHAR. An honest imagery, which the audience will remember for a long time. The idea of our latest movies Mithila Makhaan came to me when I was working with an NGO during the Kosi floodings of 2008, I realised that Bihar need people who can come back and work. So, the story which was formed during that time was about this guy who works abroad and comes back to his village in Mithila and do something.
Cheers,
Neel Nitin Chandra
