New York Director Casts A Magic Spell With New Take On The Life Of M.K.Gandhi

Ram Alladi, Director of the award winning film ‘Chiseled’, is set to release his ambitious and mesmerising ‘’Ra’s Metanoia’’; a re-imaging of the life of the legendary Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

Shot entirely in New York and New Jersey, ‘Ra’s Metanoia’ combines vintage film styling with state of the art computer generated sets to create this spellbinding non-linear telling of Gandhi’s life based on Gandhi’s writings – most significantly, his memoir, ‘Magic Spell Of A Book’.

A periodic drama with historically accurate fictional elements, ‘Ra’s Metanoia’ takes the audience through the key moments in Gandhi’s life; from childhood to his untimely death in 1948 in New Delhi. Although Ram Alladi has taken care to avoid religious and cultural references, the more spiritual elements of the father of the nation’s life and philosophies are beautifully illustrated with clever symbolism and a sublime script.

The Story
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist and political ethicist who changed the world as we know it through non-violent resistance and successful civil rights campaigning, including freeing India from British rule.

‘Ra’s Metanoia’ chronicles Gandhi’s extraordinary life with a combination of fact and fiction whilst encapsulating scientific concepts such as quantum mechanics, Einstein Rosenberg bridge and rare space elements. The film seamlessly weaves a tapestry of a richly narrated story with Gandhi principles.

Ram Alladi achieves this with his usual flair by tapping into stunning imagery and symbolism.

Visualision
Based on the director’s childhood fascination with Gandhi, ‘Ra’s Metanoia’ has been derived largely through the words of Gandhi himself and, Gandhism is the central theme of the film, despite its occasional fictional elements. Ram Alladi originally intended to craft a screenplay from Gandhi’s memoir, ‘Magic Spell Of A Book’ but, it soon became clear that this multifaceted tale deserved something a little different. Having grown up paying tribute to Gandhi on national holidays, ‘Gandhi amar rahe’ (long live Gandhi) was such a central theme in Ram’s life that he spent much of his childhood believing that his hero was still alive. Ram remembers visiting the Gandhi Museum in New Delhi and wondering how he could remove the blood stains from Gandhi’s showcased shawl.

The music
Music was very much a love of Gandhi’s life and Ram Alladi has been fastidious in ensuring that ‘Ra’s Metanoia’’s soundtrack reflects that.

Most notably, the re-composed and re-imagined soundtrack features one of Gandhi’s favorite songs, ‘Ekla Chalo’ which was written by the Nobel prize winner Rabindranath Tagore.

All of the music in ‘Ra’s Metanoia’ is performed with authentic, acoustic Indian instruments in order to recreate the sounds that Gandhi loved so much. The film’s background score composer is the celebrated Bharadwaj V Komaragiri who composed ‘Ra’s Metanoia’’s sound effect design including the distinctive ticking sound of Gandhi’s Ingersoll watch.

Cast & Crew:
Srinivas Rao Sanapathi, Rajesh Rajagopal, Tej Kondeti and Deepak Bhimarasettyplayed Mohanddas Karamchand Gandhi role, Patrick J Lloyd, Lorenzo Paladino, Mamadau Cisse, Saritha Navali, Kamya Rayasam played Kasturba Gandhi, Abhiram Naluvala, Rajaprasad, Rajiv Visupte, Satish.P, S.S.V.Prasad, Dasharathi Gattu, Varsha Rayasam, Shriya Singh, Shiva Kondeti, Dr. Khushboo Singh (Putlibai), Lakshmi Rao, Adhya Alladi, Sanjana Kondeti

Produced by Ar ItWorks, LLC

‘Ra’s Metanoia’ will be screened at major film festivals and within prestigious film institutions beginning October 2nd 2020.

Jack Massey’s British Title dreams at stake on Thursday at York Hall


London, UK; 17 December 2019 Manchester fighter Jack Massey’s boyhood dreams of bringing a Lonsdale Belt home could finally come true this week. The 26-year-old will face Richard Riakporhe in a scheduled 12-round fight at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Thursday, 19 December, that will be screened live on Sky Sports.

Massey has had a steady rise to the top since he first picked up the sport at age 12, when his father took him to his old boxing club in Buxton, Derbyshire. By the following year, he has won his first title and before long, he had three junior ABA Champion titles to his name.

Early 2013, at the age of 19 Jack then won the senior ABA championship beating Chris Billam on points. Later that year Massey decided to turn Pro and quickly built a reputation as an unbeatable opponent with 16 wins in 16 fights including 8 knock outs.

To date, Massey has had 53 Amateur fights, has boxed for England, winning Gold at the Tri-nations and Bronze at the Youth Commonwealth Games.

Now, he has his sights firmly set on the British Cruiser-weight Title with big rewards on the line including a fight with new European champion Lawrence Okolie. Massey has set a goal to win the title on Thursday and defend it at The Dome next year, where he has fought and won four times in his professional career in front of a sell-out crowd.

While the road leading to Thursday’s bout hasn’t been without struggles – Massey was ruled out of the British-title challenge in July due to injury – he has since come back stronger than ever with the help of his team and coach Robert Rimmer Jnr / Phoenix Camp, Manchester

There’s no doubt that Londoner, Riakporhe, who has won all 10 of his fights, is a tough opponent, but Massey believes he is in top form and well prepared to face him.

“I’m just thinking about getting in there and showing people what I’m all about. I have waited a long, long time for this. I’ve had my ups and downs, but I’m here now, ready to fight for the British title,” he says.
