Angelina Jolie’s movie a remake of Roja?
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
June 25, 2007
A Mighty Heart, a Hollywood movie recently had its red carpet premiere in Cannes. The movie’s main protagonist is Angelina Jolie, and is ably supported by the Hindi actor Irfan Khan(who appeared in this years blockbuster Namesake). The movie is based on the kidnap and eventual murder of Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl by terrorists in Pakistan.
A Mighty Heart
The brutal murder and the posting of the gruesome clip on the internet as proof of Pearl’s death had shaken the civilized population around the world. That is why the subject is as disturbing today as it was in 2002.

But the movie is not focused on Daniel Pearl, it is following Daniel’s wife played by Angelina Jolie. Jolie’s character tries desperately to rescue her husband from the terrorists. A woman trying desperately to save her hostage husband from a terrorist group doesn’t it sound familiar? Yes it has a striking resemblance to Mani Ratnam’s Roja. And Irfan Khan who plays a strict police officer helping Angelina Jolie seems to have more than just a resemblance to Nasser’s character. Mani Ratnam will be the only right person to give a final word on this. However the authenticity of the tragedy that the movie is based on has not been lost at any point. The movie opened in the US this weekend, and has received some very positive reviews from various quarters and even though the Academy awards are a good eight months away there is already a buzz around A Mighty Heart being destined for mighty things. The movie has been co-produced by Brad Pitt.
