What is Kadak Badshaahi?

Kadak Badshaahi is an epic, historical, musical feature film that tells the 604 year history of the city of Ahmedabad through its people and places, those known and those unknown. It will create a new genre of historic retelling in the visual realm. It is a love song to a unique city and the amazing people that made it what it is.

Update 1: CROWDFUNDING IS LIVE! 

Why is Kadak Badshaahi Important?

The magnificent Rome of the ancient past has little to do with the Rome of today. This is true of Greece, Japan, Egypt, Syria and most other cities and countries in the world where once ancient civilizations thrived.  Ahmedabad is an exception. It is a modern cosmopolitan city that still lives its history. Its cultural traditions belong to and are placed in the 15th or 16th century while it simultaneously lives in the 21st. This film will capture the essence of the culture and history that makes Ahmedabad unique amongst the cities of the world, bringing to life the many civilizations that makes it what it is – the Sultans, the Moghuls, the Dutch, the Portugese and the British, along with Mahatma Gandhi, Indulal Yagnik, the Mahajans and the many brave women and ordinary citizens that form the warp and weft of its pulse. The film weaves together these exciting people and their tales.

 

Updates From Us

We have our creative hats on. Locations are being scouted. Songs are being written. We want Shubha Mudgal to compose and sing for us, Indian Ocean to create history in Gujarati, Shankar Mahadevan to make us dance.

The shoot starts on Uttarayan, with the main filming to follow in February. We want to record the songs at the end of January. And that is where we need you to pitch in.
