ARCEe is the post-Pandemic transformation of movies.
Arcee is an Indian film starring Dinesh Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, which has won the Best Indian Film category at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
A remake of the 1987 film by Aravind Chavan, ARCEES premiered in India in December 2017.
Archetes director Shilpa Shetty, who also directed Arjuna’s Mughal Warrior, said the film was inspired by the life of the legendary warrior, who was born in 1783.
“I’m very much of a warrior, and I wanted to create a movie that is a bit more respectful of the historical period,” said Shetty.
“The life and the history of the warrior were something that resonated with me.”
He said the director wanted to convey the importance of the past and the power of the ancient Indian art of swordplay.
“He was a master swordsman.
He could move with grace and gracefulness, as he is today,” said Shilpati Shetty on the subject of the film’s theme.
“This is the time that we should take up our swords.”
Arcees themes and motifs are the same ones that resonate with Shetty and his team.
The film has a romantic tone, with the two lead characters of the story being lovers who must fight each other.
The filmmakers also want to create an environment that is respectful of Indian culture, and also a reflection of the time period.
The films themes are rooted in the fact that the Indian subcontinent had been ruled by rulers who would often treat people as slaves.
In fact, Arceees theme is called The Warrior, which is derived from the ancient Hindu belief that the warrior is a hero who protects the oppressed and the oppressed are the heroes of the nation.
The movie also stars Shetty’s sister Anushko, and actor-musician Prabhudev Arora, who plays the role of the hero.
The cast also includes actor Kunal Kapoor, actor Akshay Kumar, actor Suman Sharma, actor Nilesh Bhatia, actress Abhijit Kumar, and director Shashi Tharoor.
