Exclusive footage of Yash Chopra and Karan Johar in conversation on Kaala Patthar.
Karan Johar, the young director of the super hit Kuch Kuch Hota Hai talks about the making of another superhit Kaala Patthar to its director Yash Chopra in an exclusive interview about
How the script was inspired by a real life mining disaster.
How it a complete departure from Yash Chopras usual glamorous, romantic films because he, inspired by the visual and dramatic possibilities of a mining diasater, wanted to make a different film
How he brought technicians down from the U.S. to shoot the scenes involving flooding of the mines.
With the first rays of the rising sun the minors go down so deep in the coal mine the their voices are stifled in the bowels of the earth – even in their wildest dreams they can not escape to reach out to the reality above ground.
When disaster strikes – there are 3 men that stand up to fight for these labourers who take death as part and parcel of their existence.
Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) an ex-naval officer who is court-martialled and dismissed from the navy. Vijay is now working at the coal mine. He welcomes every sign of danger and adversity in an attempt to combat the demons within and to pay for an act of cowardliness as the captain of a sinking ship.
Ravi (Shashi Kapoor) is an engineer in-charge of this doomed project, due to the negligence and the greed of its owners. Ravi tries to alert the management and the workers. Ravi joins forces with the workers and Vijay in order to save the lives of his fellow workers and fight the establishment.
Mangal (Shatrughan Sinha) is runaway convict who finds shelter from the hands of the law at the coal mine. A boisterous and egoistic man, who finds that there is a compassionate human being within him and also ends up joining the quest for justice.
Kaala Patthar is a film about how different people from different walks of life and backgrounds come together and show true courage and character, to fight the force of nature in what is a loosing battle.
