Film-maker Anand Patwardhan recently released two DVD’s – Bombay our city and War and Peace which are being released by Times Music on their Junglee label.
He had actors Nasiruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah do the honours by inaugurating it at Oxford bookstore in Mumbai.
According to his website, War And Peace was filmed over three tumultuous years in India, Pakistan & Japan. It is a documentary journey of peace activism in the face of global militarism and war. Triggered by macabre scenes of jubilation that greeted nuclear testing in the Indian sub-continent, War And Peace is dramatically framed by the murder of Mahatma Gandhi.
