Shatranj Ke Khilari Trivia & Bloopers (5)

  • The main characters in "Shatranj ke Khilari" are the two chess-playing nawabs Mirza Sajjad Ali and Mir Roshan Ali. In Premchand's story Wajid Ali Shah or General Outram is hardly mentioned, though PremChand, in a tone of irony, does make explicit the analogy between the chess-king and the real King. He presents them as apathetic towards public affairs. In fact, they duel together with swords and kill each other, which is how PremChand's story ends.Ray makes changes so as to intensify the essenceBy Dipen

  • From the earliest scenes of "Shatranj Ke Khilari"emphasises Wajid Ali Shah's musicality. He is seen dressed as Krishna in an opera, or beating a drum at the festival of Muharram, or watching an entrancing "Kathak' dance performance. "Nothing but poetry and music should bring tears to a man's eyes", he tells his Prime Minister with a hint of sternness on seeing him weep after an interview with the British Resident. Later, at the time of self-willed abdication he delivers a "Thumri".By Dipen
