Mohalla Assi 2018 info:-
Mohalla Assi 2018 One of the opening frames of the narrative tells us that the film is, “Dedicated to Lord Shiva and the people and culture of Varanasi”. Director Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s Mohalla Assi is loosely based on Dr. Kashi Nath Singh’s popular Hindi novel “Kashi Ka Assi”.
It is a satire on the commercialization of Assi, a popular locality in the pilgrim city of Kashi aka Varanasi, which is situated on the banks of the holy river, Ganga. While one of the dialogues during the initial stage of the narrative states, “Corruption is our national character”.
The satire is about the corruption of the whole mindset, where survival being the bottom line is the only line, and how at Assi, Indian social and moral values are now replaced by the cold cynicism of human survival, in the name of globalization.
The film is a fictionalized documentation of the degradation of the place and its people, spanning over a decade beginning from 1988 to 1998 and it incisively captures the lives of its people with aplomb.
Especially; Dharamnath Pandey (Sunny Deol) a Sanskrit teacher who is an orthodox, upright “panda” and strictly against accommodating foreign tourists in Mohalla Assi as paying guests. Savitri (Sakshi Tanwar) is his nagging but considerate wife.
