About the project

The film "Extreme Nation" chronicles one of the darkest, most explicit and mysterious forms of a subculture spawned over years of metal music in the Indian subcontinent - confronting a high-power, historic & exciting ride from the past to the present - that have been hitherto little known or largely unexplored.



So is Extreme Nation a documentary on metal music?

The film is not just a rockumentary highlighting metal musicians in their elements, but also showcases the character's personal relationship with a volatile subcontinent steeped in geo-political strife & constant power conflicts.

Shot over a timespan of four years and filmed across various cities, towns and beyond borders, this feature length documentary delves deep into the lives of those who are die-hard beacons and irrepressible spirits of the subculture, juxtaposed against current political forces, religious fundamentalism and state diktat in the Indian subcontinent namely India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, & Pakistan.

In the past, there hasn’t been a project of this magnitude and detail in music and sociology in the subcontinental context as an enthralling cinematic experience. So this film is important not just for metalheads, or music lovers but as well for those who possess active interest in the political, historical, sociological & ethnographic affairs of the subcontinent and the world at large.




What questions is this documentary trying to answer?

These followers of extreme metal music – Who are they? What are they trying to express? Is there any forewarning in their message to a beleaguered world torn by strife? What provides them this indomitable will to express, with or without the lingering apprehension of societal or judicial persecution? The film tries to answer these very urgent enquiries.

Indian subcontinental metal has it's own flavor. Though the seed was laid in the west, metal music has gradually metamorphosed into a monster of it's own kind. Metal music from India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Nepal through it's various sub-genres, avenues and initiators carry their own story that is akin to the region. We are telling our tales through the eyes and tongue of a leviathan spawned out of your own backyard!





Who are the different people we can see in the documentary?

To name a few - Anton Dhar from Bangladesh, Sandesh Shenoy from India, Hassan Amin from Pakistan, Genocide Shrines from Sri Lanka, Serpent's Athirst from Sri Lanka, Konflict from Sri Lanka and Momo Bhattacharjee from India. Apart from all of them there are also many more individuals and bands from Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Ladakh, Guwahati, Shillong, Nagaland, Lahore, Dhaka and Colombo. 


Behind the scenes




Why crowdfunding?

This story has been initiated by me but the ultimate resource seemed clear as more and more people contacted me over the last few months in terms of support. Crowdfunding will not only finance the completion of the film but will also involve a mass movement which is exactly what this film deserves.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 150000 in Production

Rs. 200000 in Post Production

Rs. 100000 in Festival Outreach

Rs. 50000 in Admin Fee


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

Most of the risks and challenges have been encountered as the filming till date includes 75% of the content. Thankfully no one got arrested or apprehended or shot while we were shooting in conflict areas. The biggest challenge right now is to raise these funds so that I can finish the film.

What happens if you don't raise enough funds?

This is a film that needs to be seen by the world so if this campaign does not work out I will definitely try and explore other avenues. But that might easily take more years in the making.
