Netaji Bose The Lost Treasure


On August 18th, 1945, Indian political exile, Subhash Chandra Bose boarded a Mitsubishi Sally Bomber at Taihoku (Taiwan) bound for an undisclosed destination in Manchuria. He was accompanied Lt. Gen Tsunamasa Shidei, Vice Chief of Japan’s Kwantung Army based in Manchuria. The plane took off but was rocked by an explosion at 2000 feet. It crashed close to the Taihoku airfield itself. Bose was badly burnt and did not survive the explosion. Many believe that the crash was purely a deception engineered by the Japanese Secret Police – the Kempeitai – in order to facilitate Bose’s escape from the Theatre of war in South East Asia to the Soviet Union. So how powerful was the Kempeitai and how did this influence affect the Bose-headed INA in South East Asia?

Bose spent more than half of the decade of the 1930’s in exile in Central Europe. He developed close links with the Abwehr, the German Military Intelligence and in turn with the German Navy. It was this connection that led him to travel onboard a special submarine detachment called the Netaji Bose The Lost Treasure, headed to South East Asia.

Netaji Bose The Lost Treasure 33rd Flotilla based in Penang had34 German U Boats and 7 Italian transport submarines. They continued to operate well after Germany had surrendered. Could they have been transporting more than just men and weapons of war? Did their cargo include Gold? Netaji Bose The Lost Treasure reveals this aspect of WW2 for the first time on television.

In public perception Kashmir’s history always begins with partition in 1947.However the region has an older history that the people revere even today. Kashmir has been the source of conflict between India and Pakistan for over 60years. 4 wars and 3 treaties later, no conclusion has been reached till now. While wars devastated the region, the lack of good governance and insecurity about the shaking loyalties of Kashmiri population has made the Delhi leaders consciously ignore the real demands and sufferings of people – that have intensified post insurgency of 1990.

While external threats both from the Pakistan army and the infiltrators are obvious, our film looks at development within Kashmir in the last decade that has led to the present situation. The ravages of Insurgency and disruption of lives of people, their families uprooted and the militarization of the valley that trapped the citizens in a situation where they see no future.

This film engage audiences in India and abroad who are aware of Kashmir but may not know the several aspects of the Kashmir problem. It looks at the history of the region and people and how it came to find itself in such a situation.

Luxury Train Journeys in India


Each episode of the series Luxury Train Journeys in India takes the viewer on a journey to exotic locales on a luxury train that makes this experience a unique one.

The opening montage introduces the concept through an animation of a train leaving a station. The camera then moves in to explore the interiors of the train before settling at a window from where one can see monuments and destinations that the series would travel to.

Each train discovers a different part of the country and the episode would follow the train journey chronologically. The narrative would also introduce the journey through a map so that the viewer is able to appreciate the journey better.

The anchor, Luke Kenny helps the viewer savour experiences of each journey. His style would be “spontaneous” and he would share his”experiences” on the journey. While the series Luxury Train Journeys in India aims to be informative, it would also focus on the anchor’s experiences, leaving the viewer mesmerized at the end of each episode.
