Yuvraj Kumar, a filmmaking student from Whistling Woods International and World Politics coming from defense background has come up with a project with a different vision. He is directing, acting and producing the film ISIS – Enemies of Humanity himself.
Yuvraj was present at the Stage play of ISIS Enemies Of Humanity directed by Joydeep Kumar and during media interaction he said, ‘ISIS Enemies Of Humanity’ will end the doctrine of terrorism.
“I can assure you thins film will end the doctrine of terrorism because one- we will be exposing the violent terrorist ideology that people fall for, on the internet and when they become part of the camp. And second, we are giving a solution for the ideology; we are telling how to counter it. And that solution is ideally available in religious books itself.
It isn’t just about religious books and what they teach us. It is about humanity. Just knowing each other, loving each other, and trying to be a part of our globalized society. “ said filmmaker Yuvraj during a media interaction.
While talking about his part in the film he said, “I wouldn’t like to give away much about my character but, I am playing a terrorist. But there is a twist to it. When you watch the movie you will love the character.”
When asked why he thought of doing a play before the film’s release, he said, “ I am a student of Cinema and I am making cinema but I am somebody who likes to stick to the roots. And cinema is something that evolved from a play and that’s the reason I thought about doing the play. And on the other hand, I am talking to my audience through the cinema. But in the play, I get the chance to talk to them live and give the message first hand from me.”
Yuvraj was asked if he will be taking the film to different film festivals around the world to which he stated, “I spoke to the cultural Minister of Maharashtra but it’s up to them, what steps they take. I wanted to release the movie on my own so once it is released I will go forward with being part of different film festivals. I wanted to know audience’s response since I am a new filmmaker.”
‘ISIS – Enemies of Humanity’, the film has the power to end extremism and radicalization, and denounce terrorism and is being released with the same motive.
The film stars Rahul Dev, Rasheed Naaz, Yuvraj Kumar, Manon Faure, Harish Bhimani, directed by Yuvraj Kumar under the banner of Atlantic Films is slated to release on 29th September 2017.
