72 Hoorain Teaser Out: A film titled 72 Hoorain (72 Hoors) depicting this dark face of Islamic terrorism is soon to release. Feature film “72 Hoorain”, directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan, will be released in Indian theatres on July 7, the makers announced Sunday.
The 2019 film, starring Pavan Malhotra and Aamir Bashir in the lead, focuses on the consequences of violent extremism. Chauhan, who has also edited the movie, said the story is a “tragic reminder of the power of manipulation” and the “urgent need to address the root causes of terrorism.” “The slow poisoning of the mind by perpetrators turns ordinary individuals into suicide bombers. Let us remember that even the bombers themselves, with families like ours, have fallen victim to the twisted beliefs and brainwashing of terrorist leaders. Trapped in a deadly illusion of 72 virgins, they embark on a path of destruction, ultimately meeting a gruesome fate,” the director, also known for films such as “Lahore”, said in a statement.
“72 Hoorain” had its premiere under the Indian Panorama section at the 2019 International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa, where it received the ICFT-UNESCO GANDHI MEDAL Special Mention.
