Upcoming film 72 Hoorain explores the psychological aspect of terrorism and how young men are brainwashed to turn suicide bombers, director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan said ahead of the first-look teaser launch of his movie on Sunday.
The 51-second-long teaser starts with pictures of infamous terrorists Osama Bin Laden, Yakub Memon, Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed, with a voiceover praising those who choose the path of Jihad. The teaser then introduces actors Pavan Malhotra as Hakim Ali and Ameer Bashir as Bilal Ahmed. The video concludes with the voiceover promising ‘untouched hoorain (beautiful maiden)’ to those who do Jihad.

“The slow poisoning of the mind by perpetrators turns ordinary individuals into suicide bombers. Let us remember that even the bombers themselves, with families like ours, have fallen victim to the twisted beliefs and brainwashing of terrorist leaders,” said Chauhan.
“Trapped in a deadly illusion of 72 virgins, they embark on a path of destruction, ultimately meeting a gruesome fate. It is a tragic reminder of the power of manipulation and the urgent need to address the root causes of terrorists,” added the National Award-winning filmmaker.
The hard-hitting teaser portrays the ultimate reality check — suicide bombings are the product of intense brainwashing of innocent people, which pushes them on the path of terrorism in the name of faith and religion.
Producer Gulab Singh Tanwar said, “It's not the job of a faint-hearted to back up a project that is so emotionally heavy. 72 Hoorain was just the right way to showcase how in the name of religion, fictional stories were sold to innocent and ordinary people in order to convert them into barbaric terrorists. It was high time the truth was told.”
72 Hoorain is slated to hit the theatres on July 7.
