Rajesh Touchriver makes films based on real events. He has been following the same path since he started his journey as a director. In the past, many problems were brought to light by him through films. Now in the name of ‘Witch Hunting’, trying to bring to light the atrocities happening in many states, ‘Dahini’ has been screened touching on controversial issues. The movie ‘Dahini’ has been made close to reality, based on the true incident that happened in and around the Mayur Banj district of Orissa. Things learned while studying this story will surprise everyone in the film crew. It is sure to surprise the audience as well.
According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB)… from 2001 to 2019, around 2937 people were brutally killed on suspicion of practicing witchcraft in our country. In the year 2019 alone, 102 people were brutally killed by the people of different villages for being witches. It should be said that there is no case against such atrocities. According to the Odisha High Court in 2021… four women are brutally murdered every month on the pretext of practicing witchcraft. Looking at the government figures, it seems that women are the majority of those who are killed. And the report provided by the United Nations confirmed that between 1987 and 2003, about five thousand people were brutally killed on suspicion of being witches.
Rajesh Touch River made the film ‘Dahini’ to bring to light the issue of ‘witch hunting’ which is plaguing our country as well as many countries… human rights concerns, and gender-based violence. Human rights activist and Padma Shri awardee Sunitha Krishnan said, ‘Even in modern times, with gender-based violence, barbaric practices are still practiced by some. It is unfortunate that no one talks about these atrocities even though it is a violation of human rights. This movie is our attempt to inform everyone about these facts,” he said.
