No Sign Of Relief For This UAE Director Ban On The Hollywood Movie DAM999 Extended Again By The Tamil Nadu Government

No Sign Of Relief For This UAE Director  Ban On The Hollywood Movie DAM999 Extended Again By The Tamil Nadu Government

The Tamil Nadu government has again banned the Mullaperiyar dam controversy film ‘Dam 999’. Nine years ago, the film was banned in Tamil Nadu since its release. Even though the Supreme Court has given permission to screen the movie, the Tamil Nadu government alone has not given permission to screen the film. When the ban expired yesterday, the government renewed the order.

Tamil Nadu continues to ban the film, claiming that the story of the film, which was released in 2011, is similar to the Mullaperiyar Dam. Dam 999 is a film about an old, dilapidated Dam and the tragedy that occurs when it collapses. With that, Tamil Nadu went ahead with measures including obstruction of the Indian Parliament. The film was subjected to brutal actions, including refusing to post posters, imposing fines on theaters that came forward to show it, influencing channels not to take satellite rights, and breaking IMDb ratings by cyber fighters.

  

Dam 999, directed by Dr. Sohan Roy, has since won numerous international awards. The film made it to the Oscar shortlist with five entries in three categories and qualified for next year’s Golden Rooster Award in twelve categories. Dam 999 is also the first Indian film to be eligible for the Chinese Oscar. The screenplay for the film, written and directed by himself, was also selected for the ‘Permanent Core Collection’ in the Oscar Academy Library. In the following years, Dam 999 was selected for over 130 international film festivals.

Award Winning Director Sam Khan on the Emergence of Short Format Films in India

Award Winning Director Sam Khan on the Emergence of Short Format Films in India

“For a good film, you don’t need big money or big stars. You just need a good script and a team of beautiful crew members backing it. That’s it”. Says award winning film director Sam Khan who awaits to collaborate with the Taiwanese Government for his next ambitious project.

Budding director Sam Khan is a man on a mission.

A firm believer in tiding in the new wave, he wants to promote the segment of short format films between 1 to 50 minutes.  This is a zone he believes is a beautiful space to be in, because here you don’t need very big people, budgets or stars. “For a good film, you just need a good script and brilliant crew members. You don’t need money or a big ambience. I am trying to create a different path for shorter format films. Because no platform right now, neither Amazon nor Netflix are buying shorter format films, and this segment definitely needs encouragement, because today people from smaller towns like Lucknow, Kanpur are asking, is there a future of making such films?”

“If I or any budding director is trying to make a shorter film, today there is no future in terms of commercial success for it. We need to make this segment bigger so we can encourage people to experiment. Why should we be restricted by a myopic vision of how to make cinema in today’s day and age, where with the emergence of the digital platforms you don’t need to go anywhere. Entertainment is right in your hands.” Khan points out.

Not new to the world of short format films himself, his film “Seven” won the Inspiring film of the year award at the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival in 2019. And this London educated filmmaker is now taking his next steps Internationally in this direction with a certain vision.

Collaborating with the Tokyo Government for his next short format film, “Knuckle Duster” This Indo- Japanese Collaboration is going to be shot entirely in Tokyo post the Covid-19 situation lifts. Starring Yash Raaj Singh ( the main negative lead of the Hrithik Roshan starrer War), the film is touted to be India’s most expensive action film shot in the short format.

“Hollywood has taken the format of short films very seriously. They are keeping in mind Film Festivals across the Globe including Berlin, Cannes & Tokyo but India is not producing the kind of films, which we can represent in the International Film Festivals in this format. We need to create something of our own, it’s high time”.

If he had to make an appeal to Bollywood regarding this what would it be? “If we talk about generational change, cinema is changing. If you see the last few films of the bigger stars, they haven’t really worked. Only content is working. Today the audience wants to watch something which is smart. That’s why Netflix has such a huge subscription in India, because the choices are evolving and there is such hunger for good content.”

“I have an appeal to the audiences to also open up to this format, we need people to appreciate work also in this format so it can get the platform it rightfully deserves.  There are people telling beautiful stories even in a one-minute time span when given the opportunity”.

Resting his case, he ends with, “When you talk about shorter films, there is no segment of commercial cinema or non-commercial cinema, because shorter films are not about commercials, they are about conviction. And conviction is the key what we need to go firmly after, and I know they will find the right audience for it once they open up to this whole new world of storytelling”. He convincingly signs out.

 

  

A visionary idea. 

Platforms are you ready to nest this new wave of Cinema yet?

Originally hailing from Lucknow, Sam Khan pursued his filmmaking from London and returned to India and assisted directors like Anurag Basu and Vikram Bhatt. Today he has his own production company, Mother’s Eye Production Pvt. Ltd which has released over 25 short format films in a short span of over two years. He is currently in the pre-production stages of making one of India’s most expensive action film in the short format film in collaboration with the Tokyo Government and hails to take this format far with his endeavors.

Dashobhuja Short Film On Maa Durga By Chaltabagan Durga Puja Draws The Who’s Who Of Art And Film World

19 October, 2020, Kolkata: A short film “Dashobhuja” (the ten-armed Goddess) by Manicktala Chaltabagan Lohapatty Durga Puja Committee has drawn the who’s who of the performing arts and film world to highlight the ten astras or weapons held by Maa Durga in each hand and its deep spiritual meaning and message. This musical film would be released tomorrow after its premiere at the ITC Royal in conformity with social distancing norms, would be in Bengali and Hindi.

The short film has been conceptualised and produced by culturist Sundeep Bhutoria who is also the Chairman of the 78-year-old Manicktala Chaltabagan Lohapatty Durga Puja famed for its Dhak and Sindur Khela. The film is directed by Arindam Sil and maestro Bickram Ghosh has given the music. While Pt Vishwa Mohan Bhatt of Grammy Award and Padma Bhushan-fame has done raag Durga for a portion of the film, Dr Sonal Mansingh has recited the Sanskrit shlokas. Singers Usha Uthup, Iman Chakraborty and Somchanda Bhattacharya have lent their voices to the short film whose script is written by Sugato Guha and choreographed by Arnab Bandhopadhyay. Ayan Sil contributed as the director of photography.

The entire shooting was done at the Eastern Zonal Cultural Centre (EZCC) Kolkata in Salt Lake. Nusrat Jahan and Rituparna Sengupta have lent their voice as the narrators of the story. For the Hindi version, Dr Sonal Mansingh has done the narration.

“Chaltabagan Durga Puja has been the first puja in city to popularise Dhak Utsav and Sindurkhela as special events which has been graced by chief minister, governors, diplomats, film fraternity, artists, industrialists, book lovers, folk and cultural performers and so on. This year we not organising Dhak and Sindurkhela factoring in the covid situation so we thought of trying our something new through which we would be able to showcase the cultural and spiritual aspect of Bengal’s most popular festival to our partners, associations and other cultural organisations in India and abroad,” said Sundeep Bhutoria, Chairman, Manicktala Chaltabagan Lohapatty Durga Puja Committee.

The film revolves around the ten astras or weapons that the gods gave to Maa Durga, namely kharga (sword), trishula (trident), sudarshana chakra (thunder disc), vajra (thunderbolt), tir dhanush (bow and arrow), bharji (agni), sankha (conch), lotus, khitaka/parashu (gada) and snake. It starts with a lady doing “Chandi Paath” and a little girl representing Devi Durga. The ten astras of Maa Durga are represented by ten women. Each woman representing each an astra does a performance and at the end of which they present their astra to the little girl as the “Chandi Path” continues. At the end of the ten performances when the little girl is presented with all the ten astras we see the idol of Devi Durga complete `Dashobhuja’ form with all the astras in her hands. The video will start and conclude with excerpts and footages from previous years’ Puja celebrations at the Manicktala Chaltabagan Lohapatty Durga Puja.

The women performers who have represented the ten astras of Maa Durga in the film are Ananya Chatterjee, Bratati Bandyopadhyay, Devlina Kumar, Jaya Seal Ghosh, June Maliah, Koneenica Banerjee, Dr Nandini Bhowmik, Priti Patel, Poulomi Das, Sauraseni Maitra, Shinjini Kulkarni, Soumili Biswas. The film also introduces Rammani Mandal.
