Meet the Director of the movie ‘My Name Is RaGa’, teaser of which is winning the internet

The movie is written and directed by Rupesh Paul, a Malayali filmmaker who has a very interesting repository of movies to his credit.

A 4 minutes long trailer of an upcoming movie, which appears to be a biopic on Congress President Rahul Gandhi, has gone viral in the last couple of days. The movie is titled “My Name Is RaGa”, and going by the trailer, or the teaser, it is story of Rahul Gandhi’s coming of age.

According to media reports, the movie could release in April, just ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. How the movie will perform at box office will be known when it releases, but it is winning the internet for sure. Although comments by users on the official upload on YouTube has been disabled by the owners, the social media can’t stop talking about it.

Take a look at the teaser first:

So who is the brain behind this movie?

The movie is written and directed by on Rupesh Paul, a Kerala born filmmaker who had announced a biopic of Narendra Modi too ahead of the 2014 general elections. Even then he had released a trailer, though it didn’t have any actors, dialogues or scenes, as can be seen in the trailer of the movie on Rahul Gandhi. It was made up of just a few animated slides with text and music.

Most Narendra Modi supporters are finding the teaser of “My Name Is RaGa” funny, so they should thank their stars that the trailer of the proposed movie on Modi, which never was produced it seems, was nowhere similar. Another difference is that while Rupesh Paul had announced that the movie on Narendra Modi will be a 4D film, the movie on Rahul Gandhi appears a normal 2D movie.

Rupesh Paul says that “My Name Is RaGa” is not just another biopic. “I don’t want to call this a biopic, it’s a story of any man who becomes unstoppable after he wins over a catastrophic life,” the writer and director of the movie explains the idea of the movie.

It is not clear if Rupesh Paul is a fan of Rahul Gandhi, but back in 2014, he had clarified that he was no supporter of Narendra Modi. “I disagree strongly with the kind of ideology he is a part of,” he had said then referring to Narendra Modi, though adding that he agreed to direct the movie because India needed a strong leader.

The movie on Modi was never shot and produced it appears. However, “My Name Is RaGa” has real actors and at least the trailer has been shot, edited and released for public viewing. But whether the full length feature film will release, one can’t be sure going by the history of Rupesh Paul.

In January 2014, Rupesh had announced a movie named “Kamasutra 3D” and released a trailer starring Sherlyn Chopra that generated much heat. However, the movie was not released and there were rumours that it was shelved and only the trailer was shot.

Later in May 2014, he had announced that he was making a movie around disappearance of the Malaysian flight MH370, which also created some buzz and controversy, but that movie too is yet to be produced and released.

Whether or not he is able to finish production and release of “My Name Is RaGa”, Rupesh Paul has surely added another impressive title to his stable that has movies like “Saint Dracula 3D”, “The Temptation Between My Legs” and “Monologues of an Indian Sex Maniac”.
