Bollywood Mondays: 'Mangal Pandey: The Rising' (2005)

February 25, 3:30pm - 6:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Marine Science Building 114

In 1857, a mutiny of Indian soldiers against the British Raj sparked a civil rebellion that shook colonial control of the subcontinent to its core. In the margins of this history, the actions of the shadowy figure of 'first rebel' Mangal Pandey have long been debated. 'Mangal Pandey: The Rising' (2005), across a colorful canvas of 19th-century Indian society, tells one explosive version of this story.

Starring Bollywood superstars Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherji, and featuring music by A.R. Rahman, 'Mangal Pandey' is the third movie in the twelfth UH Bollywood film series, running on occasional Mondays this spring.
