Golden Ratio Films (GRF), Yaelstar Films, and Hundred Films are producing a feature film on the Battle of Haifa, which is considered to be the last great cavalry campaign in history.The scheme was unveiled on Haifa Day, the Indian Army's annual holiday to pay tribute to the three Indian Cavalry Regiments-Mysore, Hyderabad, and Jodhpur Lancers-that helped liberate the Israeli coastal city Haifa in response to the 15th Imperial Service Cavalry Brigade's assault.The film, which is marketed as a fast-paced war drama, will be co-produced by GRF, a digital content company based in Vistas Media Capital; Yaelstar and Hundred Films.For the project, the makers are planning to bring in a multinational team.Major Dalpat Singh, who is known as the Hero of Haifa, was given a military cross for his bravery.Indian cavalry regiments armed with just spears and swords exhibited the highest form of valour and cleared the enemy from the rugged slopes of Mt.Laurel.Indias Ambassador to Israel, Sanjeev Singla, described the bold cavalry charge as one of the few classical cavalry operations that had been fully transformed by modern warfare during a gathering at the Indian cemetery in Haifa.In honor of this conflict and as an expression of the historical link between India and Israel, Singla also highlighted that the Teen Murti Memorial, which was erected to commemorate this historic event, was renamed the Teen Murti-Haifa Chowk. As time passes, their tales, courage, and sacrifice must become a living memory, he said.Dr. Einat Kalisch Rotem, Haifa's mayor, described how brave Indian cavalry men stormed with spears and rifles over a well fortified Turkish cannon position and subdued them.The story of the battle and its legacy make up a significant chapter in Haifas history.The Heroes of Haifa left us with a monumental and heroic legacy, and the city's residents are applauded for it, according to Rotem. The Indian film makers have been doing pre-recce tests for the film in the region.They have spoken with officials from various Israeli ministries who have encouraged the production and encouraged them to film the film in actual locations in Israel, where the battle took place.After attending a ceremony to pay respects to Indian soldiers in Haifa, the team posted a poster of the proposed project.Heroes of Haifa is a tale about the heroic feat of Indian soldiers, which the world needs to hear about it. According to Piiyush Singh, co-founder and group CEO of Vistas Media Capital, it has somehow remained obscuring and has yet to become the part of living memory it so much deserves.We're honored to produce a film with such a unique storyline.After a lot of time and investigation into the finer points of the battle, we are able to pin down this unique story that the world should be aware of, says Atul Pandey, co-founder of Hundred Films.In a tweet following the meeting with the film makers, Israel Foreign Ministry said it was a fruitful discussion on Indo-Israel films and media partnerships. Haifa's mayor assured the filmmakers of total support from the government.I'm sure that the movie would express our beautiful city and its place in India's history proudly.According to her, this large-scale production would draw millions of viewers, not only from India but also from other countries, and would attract thousands of new visitors to Haifa.Around 900 Indian soldiers are buried in cemeteries around Israel in Jerusalem, Ramle, and Haifa. The Haifa Historical Society has also been going around to schools in the city to teach the story of Haifa's liberation in the last decade.During Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Delhi in January 2018, India renamed the iconic Teen Murti Chowk, a war memorial, to Teen Murti Haifa Chowk.During his visit to Israel in July 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the Haifa cemetery and opened a plaque honoring Major Dalpat Singh's vital role in the city's liberation.In 2018, the Israel Post issued a commemorative stamp in honor of Indian troops' contribution to the city's liberation.
