72 Hoorain provides insight into a terrorist’s mind



This one seems to the latest expose in the tradition of The Kashmir Files and the Kerala Story.

Terrorism all across the globe is a major concern. But who are these terrorists? They do not belong to an alien land but dwell in blood and skin just like other humans. What sets them apart from the rest of the crowd is their mindset—one that is twisted and doctored into normalizing brutal killings of the innocent in the name of religion and Jihad.

Brainwashed into believing in the fictional concept of 72 Hoorain, terrorists fall into the trap of fantasizing a soothing afterlife with their personal 72 virgins. But what if the whole desperate concept of 72 Hoorain is fictional? What if, in the name of Jihad, rather than 72 virgins, you met a gruesome death? What if the soul is left wandering on the face of the earth in total distress?

The film gives the ultimate reality check: suicide bombings are the product of intense brainwashing of ordinary people, pushing them on the path of terrorism in the name of faith and religion.

“The slow poisoning of the mind by perpetrators turns ordinary individuals into suicide bombers. Let us remember that even the bombers themselves, with families like ours, have fallen victim to the twisted beliefs and brainwashing of terrorist leaders. Trapped in a deadly illusion of 72 virgins, they embark on a path of destruction, ultimately meeting a gruesome fate. It is a tragic reminder of the power of manipulation and the urgent need to address the root causes of terrorism,” says twice National award-winning director, Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.

Producer Gulab Singh Tanwar states, “It’s not the job of the faint-hearted to back up a project that is so emotionally heavy. 72 Hoorain was just the right way to showcase how, in the name of religion, fictional stories are sold to innocent and ordinary people in order to convert them into brutal terrorists. It was high time this truth was told.”

Co-producer Ashoke Pandit, who has always been vocal about such aspects in society, stated that he has full faith in the movie and the impact it will create on the audience. “The movie will definitely make you ponder upon certain beliefs prevailing in the society and how they are a mere figment of imagination. It will make you think about the concepts and ideologies that are not even close to reality in any way, and how they are merely used to brainwash people to mould them into terrorists in the name of Jihad. I would urge everybody to watch the movie with a rational mind.”

72 Hoorain stars Pavan Malhotra and Ameer Bashir in the leads and is set for a theatrical release on July 7, 2023.
