Vijay Yelakanti speaks about the film

The poster of the film has been revealed, announcing the date for the teaser launch on July 4. Director Vijay Yelakanti shares, “Maa Kaali is a homage to all the lives lost in the ruthless massacre driven by power and ambition. Although it is directly related to one of the most significant chapters of our modern Indian history, Direct Action Day continues to be an untold story of human suffering. With the film, we aim to offer a voice of support, sympathy and solidarity to all the people who continue to bear the scars of this uneventful tragedy.”

About Maa Kali

With the aim of a separate Muslim homeland, the All-India Muslim league resorted to “direct action” on 16th August 1946, resulting in communal violence sacrificing the lives of thousands of Bengali Hindus. Scaling the events before, during and after the partition, the film promises to uncover the horrors that have been long kept hidden from the people.

Headlining the cast is Raima Sen who marks her return to the big screens in a leading role along with an ensemble supporting cast. Shot in Hindi, Maa Kaali is a trilingual film which will also release in Bengali and Telugu. Written and directed by Vijay Yelakanti, the film is produced by TG Vishwa Prasad, co-produced by Vivek Kuchibhotla and presented by People Media Factory. The film is slated to release this year and the teaser is scheduled to launch on Thursday, July 4.
