"Ends well that's all well" somehow this phrase is not applicable for the story of Subhash Chandra Bose. Every time people started to discuss about Subhash Chandra Bose, the ending of it restarts with a big question mark from the beginning. Is it a conspiracy of external affairs or is it the harsh reality of Indian power politics? The man who should considered as the biggest hero of India remains as the biggest mystery of independent India. Many books, many articles, many documentary, many movies even web series and now TV serials everything have chosen the topic of Subhash Chandra Bose at at least once as their content. Recently an eminent filmmaker of Bengal Mr Srijit Mukherjee and one of Bangl’s finest actors Mr Prosenjit Chatterjee had try to show their view on Netaji's disappearance through a movie named "Gumnami".


There is lots of theory on Netaji and his certain disappear, but one of India's famous writer Mr Anuj Dhor tries to prove that Netaji is the Gumnami Baba of Faizabad. As per his theory is concerned that gumnami baba is not someone else apset Netaji. On the basis of the report of justice Mukherjee commission the entire movie is scripted, claimed by the director Srijit Mukherjee.


Although Netaji's own political party All India Forward Bloc has raised few questions regarding this movie. the director of the movie Mr Srijit Mukherjee contacted with the forward bloc leaders and give them assurance that the movie is not hampering the image Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose or nighter its declaring that Subhash Chandra Bose is Gumnami Baba. Sreejith also said that in the movie they have shown all the three theories about Netaji's certain disappear from the battlefield of Rangoon. The theories are,

1. Netaji has died on a plane crash.


2. Netaji was in Russia.


3. Netaji is the Gumnami Baba.


Tough film maker tries to establish that they have no intention to propagated Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose as gumnami Baba but still there remains some questions.

The questions are:

1. If the movie based on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose then why the name is "Gumnami"?

2. As the director mentioned they shown Netaji and gumnami Baba are two different characters then why both the characters where played by one single artist rather than two different artists?

3. If in the end of the movie they are unable to conclude Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose as gumnami then why the movie entitled as "Gumnami"? Is it not intentionally tries to inflicted the minds of the audience that there must be a possibility of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to be Gumnami Baba?

To remove all those doubts the filmmaker Srijit Mukherjee had visited the state head office of all India forward bloc on 8th September, evening, there he met with the all India General Secretary of all India forward bloc Mr Debabrata Biswas, the state secretary Mr Naran Chatterjee and all others eminent leaders of All India Forward Bloc. But just with the tailor of the movie nothing is clearly understandable whether it is a propagated story or not. The forward bloc stand is clear if they find something suspicious they will go to protest against it.


But still a big allegation is on the movie just because of it’s title "Gumnami". As I mentioned in the introduction the story of Netaji always ends with new beginning it's certainly seems to happen here again.

“If that's not happened then what?”
