White Revolution, which was also known as Milk Co-operative Movement and Operation Flood, was started by Verghese Kurien (Father of Indian White Revolution) to achieve the best milk production.

Kurien gave a lot of inputs and helped writer Vijay Tendulkar to come with the script.

Collective might for this amazing Docu drama!

The movie was made with the budget of Rupees twenty lakh and what is hard to believe is that the film was entirely crowdfunded by 5,00,000 farmers who donated Rs. 2 each. I guess this is the only movie which was being financed at the ground level. Up that’s true! And not only the documentary was a hit it was also the winner of many National awards. It was also sent for the Academy awards for Best foreign language movie. Wow ! that was indeed a great achievement.

The title song Mero Gaam Kathaparey was later used in commercials for Amul.

Here is the famous song:
