Katha Madhopur Ki


Prakash Jha & Lallan Prasad Thakur





Baklel was staged in New Delhi and was awarded maximum prizes in International Maithili Drama competition. It broke all the previous record of the Maithili Drama competition. Mr. Prakash Jha was one of the judge. He liked the drama very much and on the stage he asked for the address and phone number from Mr. Lallan Prasad Thakur.


After few months Mr. Prakash Jha called on phone to Mr. Lallan Prasad Thakur and told him that he was going to make a featurette film, so he wanted Mr. Thakur to come to Patna. That time Mr. Prakash Jha was in Patna. So, Mr. Thakur went to meet him in Patna and after three days he came back. Mr. Prakash Jha had given him the main role of a vilain in that film and told him to come back as soon as possible after taking at least one months leave because he has to be there with him in the interview of the artists, which Mr. Prakash Jha had to select for that film.


Mr. Thakur applied for one month leave and was sanctioned. So, after a week he again went Patna and had called Mr. G. Vishwanathan and Sudhir Mishra, both were his drama artists for that film after a week. After one week the whole "Katha Madhopur Ki"team was on the location for shooting in May 1988. G.Vishwanath and Sudhir Mishra both are also in that film. After few weeks my children had vacation, so I also went to see the shooting. The shooting of that film was completed in a month but the other technical part of the film took few months. The film was released in September, I was also present on the release of "Katha Madhopur Ki"and witnessed the film. On Gandhi Jayanti it was released for TV on Doordarshan channel.


I still have the copy of that film inform of DVD . I have watched that film several times but still like to watch it.
