श्री पराशर गौर, उत्तराखंडी फिल्मो के  जनक से सीधी बात  


अगर पराशर गौर जी को उत्तराखंड के सिनेमा का जन्मदाता कहा जाय तो इसमे दो राय नही होगी!  गौर जी उत्तराखंड मे तब एक feature फ़िल्म बनाई जब की उत्तराखंड मे बहुत संसाधन नही थे! उत्तराखंड का लोक संगीत भी केवल आकाशवाणी एव चंद कैसेट ही सीमित था! गौर जी पहली उत्तराखंडी feature फ़िल्म " जग्वाल" (जो कि उत्तराखंडी की क्षेत्रयी भाषा garwali में है) को  बनाने का ख्याल संन १९७६ मे आया लेकिन कुछ कारणों के यह काम देर से शुरू हुवा और बाद मे १८८२ मे इस निमार्ण कार्य शुरू हुवा!

लेकिन दुर्भाग्य से २५ साल बीत जाने के बाद भी उत्तराखंड के फिल्मो को उतनी पहचान नही मिली जितनी उन्हें मिलनी चाहिए थी और उत्तराखंड के फिल्मो के विकास के काफ़ी कम हुवा! After Jagwaal, Gaur Ji has produced another Uttarakhandi Film last year called " Gaura"

After years struggle the Garhwali cinema finally see at the end of tunnel when First Garhwali Feature Film “JAGWAL”( Wait) produced by Parashar Gaur released on May the 4th 1983 at Mavalankar Hall In Delhi.

Mr. Parashar Gaur was born in 1947 in a remote and a beautiful village in the heart of Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. Who could have thought that an amateur artist of Garhwali stage (Parashar Gaur), born in 1947 in a remote and a beautiful village in the heart of Pauri Garhwal (Uttarakhand) would be able to make a full length Feature film.

Jagwal is a brain child of Mr. Parashar Gaur who has spent a sizeable chunk of his life in promoting Garhwali culture. Even though he conceived the idea of making a film in 1975. It was not till 1982 that the project took off. During this period Mr. Gaur went through a hell of a time. He was being taunted by his colleagues and friends in sarcastic ways. He has been targeted and humiliated in day to days life . He has been cheated by his, the then so called promoters who were with him in the project. One of the promoter ran away with the heroin. He was so shocked .He decided to abandon the banner as well as the promoters too and started a new banner under the name of ‘ANCHALIK FILMS. ” Facing problems and hardships he finally come out with flying colours and released the first Garhwali film.

The film does not attempt to shock the viewers with the stark poverty of the hills. It does not raise any radical slogans. The main strength of the film lies in the way it captures the innocence of the hill people.

Jagwal is poignant tale of a young woman Indu. At her wedding the bridegroom’s youngest brother who is a dumb, is involved in a quarrel with priest. The bridegroom Biru intervenes. In the process the priest accidentally received fatal injuries. On the nuptial night the police arrest the bridegroom. He is tried and imprisoned for 10 years. Biru advises his wife not to wait for him, but to get married with his younger brother Sheru. But she choose to wait. After facing hardships she finally emerges triumphant and the ‘JAGWAL’ (wait) ends on a happy note when she meets her husband again .

Mr. Gaur's long experience with the theatre helped him to bring together the best talents available on the Gahwali stage and obtain their full cooperation. Film was made in record time of 28 days and passed by Censor in just 24 hours, the film was was first screened in a non commercial hall at the Mavlankarn Hall in Delhi. The film attracted a large number of people from and around the neighbourhood of the capital with several travelling all the way from places as far as Sharanpur, Meerut and Modi Nagar. The response was tremendous. It appeared that the entire Garhwali population had descended on the theatre.

The Ticket price at Rs 5 were sold for 50 and a few even went for whopping 100. After “Jagwal ‘ there were more than 20 films that have been released so far . Among them are Kabhi Sukh-Kabhi Dukh (producd by Bindesh Naudiyal), Ghar-Jawain,( produced by Nautiyal ) Kauthik (produced by Sheel choudhry) , Udnkar (Produced by Mrs Bisht) Pyaru Rumal (Dubbed from’ Kusmo Rumal ‘Nepali) Samlaon, Phulee, Madhulee, Bantwaroo, Jeetu Bagdwal, Chakarchaal, Chwati Bwari . In Kumuni Only one film has been released “Megha Aa” ( Produced by Jivan Bist.)
