Dehradun , Aug 17
The First Official Teaser for the much-awaited upcoming Uttarakhandi feature film “Maati Pehchaan” was released on the occasion of the 76th Independence Day on August 15, 2022. Produced by Faraz Shere under his banner Fortune Talkies Motion Pictures and directed by Ajay Berry, the film is an ode to the people of Uttarakhand and addresses the raging issue of migration that’s been plaguing the mountains for many years.
The first teaser titled, ‘Chapter 1: The Story of the Mountains’ showcases the intense drama and eventual tragedy at the heart of the film. The film’s director Ajay Berry says, “Uttarakhand has great potential for its regional cinema to grow. And ‘Maati Pehchaan’ is the first, brave and important step along the journey of making quality cinema in Uttarakhand. And more films like ‘Maati Pehchaan’ being made in the state will give rise to employment and create more opportunities for the people in the state.
Speaking about the teaser’s release, film producer Faraz Shere said, “For me, releasing our film’s first teaser on Independence Day held a special significance as I feel that our film is rooted in the celebration of our national glory through highlighting the value of your motherland. The main theme of ‘Maati Pehchaan’ is all about staying connected to your roots rather than abandoning them for personal gain. So, we felt a deep resonance of our film with the celebration of 75 years of independence.” Faraz also added, “This film is set in a time when migration has become a serious issue for the people belonging to the mountains. It deals with the complex issues of identity, community, language, and love in a small village of Uttarakhand. It is a film that tells the story of the mountains and beckons its lost children back home.”

The music has been composed and penned by noted Uttarakhandi musician Rajan Bajeli and encapsulates the essence of the mountain culture as well as the glamour of mainstream movies.
