Indrajit Deb who plays the role of Jiban said “I have seen the film many years ago. Hence I do not vividly remember anything now. I am trying to do the role according to the vision of the director”.

Director Shankar Chanda said “We have followed strictly the original story and not the film. This is mainly about the poverty stricken people who fight back despite all odds. The story is of the sixties but we have shown the eighties. Otherwise it would be difficult to get locations or props of that age now”.

Danga (The Riot) is a love story between a Muslim boy and a Hindu girl. They are both college students. The love story progresses in the backdrop of a riot that took place on 16th August 1946 in Calcutta. This was organized by the Muslim League under Jinnah’s command. According to this ploy, the whole of undivided Bengal was to be added to Pakistan. However Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee, the then President of Hindu Mahasabha opposed this. He saved the lives of many people and this led to the formation of the state of West Bengal.

Speaking in between shots, the director said “Not many of us are actually aware of this event or the contributions of Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee. This will be a good way of knowing about the work that the man did for his country”.
