Abhishek Bachchan and his crew visited the Agra Central Prison where Dasvi was filmed before it was released on Netflix. We had made a vow to ourselves that we would present the movie to the inmates. I’ll not forget how excited they were when they saw the movie, recognising the locations and even recognising themselves in the sequences, Abhishek recalls.
Movies were always intended to be a force for change. It was also when V Shantaram directed Do Aankhen Barah Haath, a film about jail reform. Dasvi strives for the same ultimate cinematic goal. We have a very powerful message about the capacity of formal academic achievement to influence society. I’m delighted that the message gets across so clearly. I believe that the primary purpose of the film is to amuse. But nothing beats that if we can also deliver a powerful message, Abhisek expressed.
His next appearance is R Balki’s Ghoomer where he re-joins Balki after the superhit film Paa. Moreover, not just Balki, he will furthermore re-get together with Shabanaji (Azmi). They participated a long time earlier in Umrao Jaan. It is so brilliant to work with her again. She is bewildering, says Abhishek.
The film spins around a direct message, where Ganga Ram Chaudhary (Abhishek Bachchan), a rowdy, uninformed, and untrustworthy boss priest who is brought to legal authority for his unexplained lawbreaker records, incorporates an instructive trick. While he is detained, Bimla Devi (Nimrat Kaur), his agreeable and shy spouse, takes over as boss pastor of nonexistent Hamit Pradesh and figures out how to partake in the power it offers. In the meantime, the pastor is banged inside the jail when Jyoti Deswal (Yami Gautam), a decent official, is picked as the new administrator.
Jyoti alludes to Ganga as gawaar (uneducated) Which followed a conflict between the two and he acknowledges the demand of finishing his Class 10 test.
