After the support Dev D, Mie Wednesday. Rank From Basanti and Gossip! During their previous meetings at UTV, the dynamic duo Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur joined hands Pihu, directed by Vinod Kapri, winner of the national prize, who was also chief Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho.
Screwvala and Kapur will continue to be associated with Shonali Bose's Priyanka Chopra-Farhan Akhtar-starrer The sky is pink, and Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Rakesh Sharma biopic Salah Jahan Se Achcha (which will be directed by Mahesh Mathai), which will go on the floors next year.
Pihu marks the first collaboration between Screwvala RSVP and Kapur Roy Kapur's film. The film refers to what happens when circumstances lead to a two-year-old girl being left alone in an apartment. It is based on a true story and has one character all the way. "We were developing another project with Vinod and he told us about Pihu. I saw her and I was amazed that the way she managed to make a 90-minute experience with a two-year-old child paid her attention. It keeps you on the edge of the chair and emotionally loaded. Then we decided we wanted to support this movie. It is always thrilling to come across directors who want to tell stories that destroy the statu quo using a new narrative narrative style, "Kapur said.
"Imagine 90 minutes of spellbinding experience. It can easily be a true story and still draws in the heart at any moment. Pihu is real thrill, "Screwvala said. Pihu has been officially selected for prestigious international film festivals including Vancouver, Palmsprings, Iran, Morocco and Germany. It was also the opening film at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Goa in 2017.
In the second round, the duo claimed that they would like to develop their own scenarios, but there could be exceptions Pihu. "Both Siddharth and I have decided that in our second avatar, we will take films in a different way. We would make our own scriptures. Pihu it was different, and when we saw the movie, it took us from the fact that we will not take ready-made movies. It was very special. Movies like this must be open to the public to come and watch, "Screwvala said.
In addition, speaking about their long-term relationship, Kapur said: "For me, familiarity is excellent because I worked with Ronnie for 15 years since I created UTV Motion Pictures in the early days. the content we want to develop and produce. "He feels comfortable and just about the same in the second avatar because there was a sensitivity match along the way."
"There is a creative framework, there is a set of vision, there is a deep sense of understanding and trust between Siddharth and me. Especially when doing things out of nothing, you need a lot of faith because whatever would be the best plans things can go wrong, things will change, and yet you want to be clear that the final product will be what it wants to be. We have that level of comfort, "Screwvala said.
The duo will take him from where they closed the previous cinematography that took time and encouraged new talent. "Ronnie's philosophy at UTV from the beginning was the same. We did not go through film connections and it's always been a director-led approach." I supported the directors who had great stories to tell, regardless of their previous films, it might not have worked or was their first movie. From a Dibakar Banerjee, to a Rakeyysh Om Prakash Mehra, to Neeraj Pandey or to Rajkumar Gupta … it was never about supporting a new director but about supporting to the one who had a great story, a director who was fully invested in him, Kapur said.
Elaborated Screwvala, "It's not just about giving the chance to new people, but once you know there's a director, then you do not think of him as a director for the first time, there's nothing charitable. If you have a conviction, go with him It's just like when you build organizations and work with new people, we do not think of giving a chance to first generation entrepreneurs. "Working with new talents, the new mentalities are very entertaining."
And the most interesting part for them to drive their individual production equipment is developing their own scripts. While Screwvala's future projects include Kedarnath. Sonchiriya and hate, Kapur, in addition to producing a series of eclectic films (directed by Vinyl Mathew Sinbad and Sooni Taraporevala Ballet boys) goes digital in a great way through the partnership with Jio. "We are working with Jio and we will be launching some shows next year. For content creators, there is a great chance to have stories at the breadth and breadth of the country," Kapur said.
"For me, at the moment, the movies are fun. If something really creative is done, then we will analyze the digital," said Screwvala, who, together with Kapur, had to reunite with Aamir Khan for the Rakesh Sharma biopic. But for some reason, the actor gave up and SRK replaced him. Aamir has worked intensively with both filmmakers Rang De Basanti, Delia Belly. PK and knell. "We will work with Aamir anytime, but he is currently focusing on him Mahabharat"Kapur said.
With 2018 being profitable for Bollywood, compared to previous years, both Screwvala and Kapur are quite enthusiastic about the future. "The legs have grown this year compared to the last few years it has fallen, and that's an important sign. That tells you that cinema does not go anywhere, it's just about creating extraordinary content and people will come in. They're the same to sell on cinematic experience as they have always been, just that I did not give them good movies. It is not that OTT or digital takes them away, they will come to the cinema week after they want to enjoy their content, "he said Kapur.
Finally, commenting on the star system, both unanimously believe that one can not beat the star combination coupled with a story and a great script. "What's changed is probably that movies that had no star in the past could have had a certain glass ceiling at the box office. But this has changed now and they make Rs 100 crore plus numbers as well it's a big sign. "Seven to 10 years ago, half of this could have been done, if not less, which meant that the taste of the public widened, but it did not change. Khan movies and will also go to small or medium-sized films, "Kapur said.
