Upcoming Movie: “Shudra – The Rising?”

Now you can watch this movie from here.

I believe till now everyone might have heard about the upcoming movie on Dalits of India, i.e. “Shudra – The Rising?” In case you have missed the news, here is the news! Movie is produced and directed by Sanjiv Jaiswal and movie will be of 120minutes. We all know we can’t express the pain and suffering of Dalits in 2hours movie but still I believe it’s an ideal runtime for a movie and it will be advantageous.

Movie: “Shudra- The Rising?” Poster

A bit of storyline:

Movie is based on story of 250million people born as untouchables (and today’s Dalits) in Hindu caste system and subjected to humiliation and slavery since ancient times. When aryans came to India with the intention of looting, they enslaved the peace loving natives. Manu – Hindu guru – imposed laws on untouchables and barred them from reading, writing and listening holy mantras. Natives were treated less than human, impure, unclean and were forced to do menial jobs.

In the movie you will see, Shudra denied water, (Dalits still fight for such rights) a Shudra child’s nose chopped off for chanting mantras, (Dalits are still not allowed to enter many temples in India), a pregnant Shudra women forced to sleep with upper caste people (Dalit women still are raped on Day to day basis in India) and many more heart touching scenes – the only crime of theirs – they are born untouchables.  Movie seems to be based on real events, if not real I bet, you might have heard such incidents once in a while in your life-time. It is believed that nature took ages to make man out of animal, but it took moments for certain men to make their fellow human animal again. “Shudra – The Rising?” highlights the depth that evil human mind can succumb, to cling on to power and supremacy.

Recently, the “Shudra – The Rising?” team has received screening Invitation for “Shudra – The Rising?” from South Asian Film Festival which will take place June 13-17, 2012, in Vancouver, and in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada.

My best wishes to the team

I strongly believe that movies on social issues should be made and given more emphasis. Sanjiv Jaiswal has chosen an important issue of caste discrimination, which has ruined millions lives and hopes. After watching trailers of movie, I can say that it’s a sincere effort by the team to put forward the caravan of Dr Ambedkar. I wish the team a grand success!

P.S.: Movie is going to release in Feb. 2012 and you can visit the movie site at http://www.shudrathefilm.com for latest updates. You can also follow producer and director – Sanjiv Jaiswal – on twitter at @sanjivjaiswal and join the facebook page of the movie at http://www.facebook.com/pages/SHUDRA-the-rising/102558246496607

    • qwerty

      You’re parroting the beliefs of the defunct Aryan invasion theory. It was framed by British for justifying foreign rule over India. Since India was ruled by foreigners all along, they justified that they were also eligible to rule over the country.

      Shudras were Aryans and they have nothing to do with the present day Hindu “shudras” who from over 90% of the population. When Aryans came to India, they brought this caste nonsense wit them and deliberately applied it to all peoples of India. What began as 3 Castes (Viz, Brahmins – Religious and scholars, Vaishy – Agriculture and trade, Kshatriy – Warriors, Rulers, Nobles and administrators) mysteriously acquired the fourth caste shudras from within themselves. This nonsense spilled over to other tribes they came into contact with, even among the powerful Dravidians and evolved into well over 12,000 castes and many more branches (shakha). Most of these are just the names of professions, places or characteristics of the tribe or clan of the people.

      Just look at the society. There white, black, brown, golden, yellow and many skilled peoples. How can they all be Aryans? Why is this caste system applicable to them? Aren’t Aryans supposed to be fair? And all vedic literature is in Sanskrit, an Aryan Language. Nothing is mentioned about the local people elsewhere. Why should this caste system apply to all Indians?

      There is religious evidence that caste system started as 3 castes in Hindu religious literature. Shudras was not one of them. At that time they were certainly in India. If the Aryans were an invading tribe, Shudras should have to exist by then. Shudras were a later addition. A sad point is that their caste system was accepted as universal by the other tribes of India.



    please do not go for this movie until it will clear what this movie is all about… this can be another treat for bhuddhists by this brahmins ,,,,, why support this jaiswal (non buddhist) and waste our money and time and divert our mind ,,… if we want to know ” WHO were Shudra” then read THE BOOK ” WHO WERE SHUDRAS” BY DR. AMBEDKAR…..

    thanks sanjiv


  16. sanjay

    will se this movie, when its realising, in which theater in mumbai


  17. Fistly im very very thaxful to mr. Jaiswalji to realising such shudra film. Really hats off to you jaiswalji. I m tellin u true fact about our new generation Aaj kal k youngster jo shudra category se related he sometimes they shamed to quote when someone asked them what is ur caste. I dont know y those guys shamin the shudra caste. Be proud of ur caste guys. Aur me ek aur baat batana chahata hu k india jitne b raja maharaja the unhone hum shudro k joro par badi badi ladaiya jiti thi nai k kshtriya aur brahmn. Lekin is sari jeet ka shrey ye brahmn aur kshtriy le jate the. Aj b hamare samaj aise bohot sare log he jo babasaheb ambedakar ji k wajah se unka wajood he aj usi samaj k kai log unhehi manese muh fer lete he. Jab hindu samaj me ham shudro koi sthan hi nai tha tab babasaheb ne hum shudro ko bouddha dharm dilaya . Usi waqt hum shudra hindu religion se alag ho gaye the. Aur aj hum dalit kisi bhagwan ka photo ghar me na lagaye to hindu kehte k dalit bhedbhav karte he lekin jab ham dalit kisi hindu k ghar jate he to unke ghar me hame lord buddha ka photo nai dikhta he tab ham dalit to kuch nai kehte he .phir bhedbhav kaun karta he aap hi sochiye. Jab koi dalit insan kaand karta he to ye media vale bade bade words me breaking news dikhaenge” dilli me ek dalit ne chori ki” “u.p. Me ek dalit ne murder kiya”. On the other hand side jab koi dalit ladki ka balatkar hota he to media ye nai kahegi ki ” dalit ladki ka balatkar hua” .agar yehi kaand koi dusra samaj ka karta he to media kabi nai kehti k brahmn ne balatkar kiya .aj b hamare india har din kisi na kisi dalit ka ghar jalaya jata he tab media kuch nai bolti. So i m tellin u true fact . So many of the news channels editors in our country are belongin to upper caste. There are so many things i want to share wid u guys.but now its enough .. Jay bhim jay bharat


    • rohit sopan gyai you are my type man.i can listen yours heart. now listen carefully today is the position rss ;media their subordinate wants to engulf republic of india and want genocide of sc and inocent working class. unity is the most powerfull thing for surviver and victory .so unit yourselfy .take meatings.educate community .and most imp thing gather in large no on 14 april to show unity. if u read this pls rply

    dear jayswal ji,I am of the view that what so ever has been depicted in the film must be fact based but it will further humiliate the persons you are depicting as shudras.The truth of the matter is let us show them in high spirits and show their brave face .may be in yr next documentry.The mantality of our people (SWARNS) so called is same as it was many years ago.Today also a learned ( a doctorate,Enginees,Scientist,teacher professo and so on discuss caste as their forefathers. They hate Sc/ST in close room and appreciate in open forum only because law is there.I personally feel we all educated people are responsile for this.We are teaching our kids this hate story and tell bthem to behave in particular manner when daeling with SC/ST communities.The hypocrites needs to be hanged and treated firmly.Even today in Govt deptts and offices the particular comminities are ill btreated they are not being given their due which they deserve.The public sectors are worst hit as they areat the whim and fancy of Boss.he ca dilute the rule to his interests.promotions are denied,the faclities to same rank or juniors are better for swarns and Sc/St are denied unless or untill they fight.If they fight they will get and their future prospects are blocked.This is the true story.Mr jaiswal can take this as a subject of his next documentry if he is serious about the issue.
    all the best

  30. nitish kumar

    what ever will be the impect of this film, i am sure it will dafinately rise the face shudras which were put in outcaste then, how ever still this system is running………….but we togather being the immenent today and we will be consolidate……….”””..tab kise aur humara bhavishya tai kiya tha aaj hum iske malik hai aur desh ka bhavishya tai krte hai”””
    aur ye sab bakwas hai jisne b kha hai k sudra ko gardan uthane ka adhikar ni hai……..tab hum kam the lekin tab b pratibhashali dar kr hume bahar kr diya…..aur aaj jab riseing chal ri hai to vo dar fir se deha ja sakta hai

  44. Dear Padeep,
    Shudra means today’s OBC or 4th Varna and not untouchable i.e. 5th Varna. So, it is changing meaning of words. Changing meaning of words means changing history. How is it possible that director do not know such basic thing?


    • bala

      Dear Rajesh Patil,
      Then why 5th varna comes into hindu religion concept while applying for a government job. Tell me in which varna do they belong according to the four varna concept if they come under Hindu religion but they really not belonging to that religion


      • ram mishra

        5th varna comes into Hindu religion because of
        M.K. Gandhi aka Mahatma
        DID you know NOTHING about POONA PACT.
        Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was forced to sign/agree/acknowledge that
        UNTOUCHABLES are also HINDU,
        Fearing a communal reprisal and genocide of untouchables after death of Gandhi in Fast unto death in POONA, Ambedkar agreed under massive coercion from the supporters of Gandhi.
        Gandhi’s famous PUNCH line during POONA fast was Accept “5 years(of reservation ) or my DEATH”.


        • raka

          aaj ke time me bhi jaati wad ka sabse bada karan ye kamina gandhi hi hai jisane poona pact karwaya…kaash use samay gandhi baba saheb ko blackmail na karta to dalito ki position bhot jyada achi hoti……hamara bhi apna ek alag desh hota jaha koi castrisam nahi hota……….realy me dalit hindu nahi ho sakate kyoki dalit hinduo se jyada honest aur achey hote hai……jai bheem


    • KS

      OBC are not shudras ……these ppls are those only who did Khairlanji hatyakand.


      • ritam

        OBC are not shudras ….every OBC thinking that we ARE not SUDRA WHY?…………TODAY ALSO THEY THINK LIKE THAT WHY?


        • Satyavadi

          Fourth varna means all Indian origin, they are further categorised as OPen(not upper caste),OBC, SC/ST and now days 95% of minorities. untouchables are mostly SC as sudras were divided into 65000 caste including subcaste and all others. please read Historical books One movie can not show all bitter truth of Indians


    • ram mishra

      I totally agree with Rajesh
      OBC’s are SHUDRA 4th Varna
      SC’s are UNTOUCHABLES 5th Varna


    • Vij

      I don’t know Why OBCs now Try to become SHUDRA and new concept of 5 varna system. It might be because they want reservation and still don’t want to stand with be SHUDRA. This is most ridiculous thing I ever heard 5 varna system and OBCs are SHUDRA.


    • Harmesh Lakha

      Absolutely correct Shudras were the fourth varna, todays obc’s, who constitute 52% of India population (Mandal Commission Reoprt), the sleeping people of India. They were the servants of the the varnas above them. The dalits or the untouchable, the ‘fifth varna’, the outcasted people , were the population outside the caste system have woken up. Rise up shudras.The obc are those who are not brahmins, takhurs/kshatriya or vaishas/banias.Watch out you so called high castes when shudras wakes up they will join with dalits and destroy the system which has kept them down trodden for too long. The high castes will be pushed back into the sea along with the the Brahminical/manuwadi system and only then the Indian will be truly free and free from the caste system from which the benefited but enslaved the shudra and the ati-shudras. Then we will reconstruct India according to ARCHITECT OF MODERN INDIA – DR BR AMBEDKAR. GANDHI REPRESENTS OLD INDIA AND BELIEVED IN THE OPPRESSIVE CASTE SYSTEM. HE IS THE EMBODIMENT OF MANU. The revolution has started and will gather pace as more more wake up.
