a prayer!!

Last day during the shoot of our new film, I was asking Jomon if we will be able to shoot my next directorial in FILM. His reply was saddening. He said film laboratories are expected to close down completely by 2015.
Like everyone else, I also grew up watching movies shot in film. It’s actually the magical depth of film that pulled me into this world of movies. So far, all the films I have directed have been shot in film format. It rips my heart to know that I won’t have that opportunity anymore. So many things from my childhood have been washed away by digital technology. Audio Cassettes, VHS tapes, Music World and now this. So many things that I have always loved is slowly becoming my past. I am praying to god to sustain the life of film in india for one more year, so that I can shoot one more movie of mine in film and then say a proper goodbye. Atleast that!!

    It’s true. Only thing v can keep the feelings in our heart. But the same time transforming technology
    will help the industry much better.

  8. December 5, 2014 at 11:25 am

    Its true no digital technologies can replace the film the magical feel that a film produces. You can still shoot film and process abroad. Abroad there are still many film shooters and processing units. There’s still hope.🙂

    Anyways on your prayer,
    Let me tell you a Charlie Chaplin quote
    Nothing is permanent in life even our worries
    This is the first thing that comes to my mind whenever I am worried ever since I read that and I find it useful.
    On that note let me stop
    All the best with your new movie

    Like others I too have a request please do blog a bit more frequent.

    Be late than never……… I think I am too late to comment on your prayer…….. very sincere prayer Vineeth…. Even me also have got a prayer… As you said, many things are being washed away from this world and I think the most and important thing we-the upcoming generation is getting lost is MOTHER’S LOVE AND CARE……If I start speaking on this, I won’t be able to stop soon, but I think the topic is so vast and I believe you will be a better person to make the world understand the seriousness of the same… Please just have a think Vineeth…… To give the child the best, most of the mothers running for work soon after their delivery (within 3 months time) and make their child lose, the most valuable mothers milk, touch, love, care everything….. poor babies how can they respond or strike for their needs…… from here starts the loss to the babies and thereby to the world…….. I feel like continue, but stopping here and leaving the rest in you who can establish the same in a wonderful way and hope you can make a revolution so as to get the world the most important thing which is being washed away back…….May God bless you Vineeth….

    With the advent of technology & sophistication in every aspect around us … The transcending change from 90s to the Y2K generation is humongous! Specially for those born around the 80s 90s phase🙂 This itself is a wonderful theme to ponder about for a film… So may arenas to explore. Stories that went unnoticed or unexplained. It’d be even more amazing to see it in FILM format! Wish U all the best to seize the chance of giving ‘Film format a proper farewell!

    November 7, 2016 at 5:09 pm

    HI VINEETH ,THIS IS ANOOP FROM MALABAR . I HAVE WATCHED THE MOVIE ANADHAM .NICE !.BUT I HAVE SOME POINTS TO SAY . I WOULD SAY THAT YOUR FILMS BECAME SUCCESFUL BECAUSE YOU TOUCHES THE HEARTS OF LOWER MIDDLE CLASS YOUNGSTERS WHO PERHAPS LIKE TO BE THE SO CALLED PURE BREED OF MALAYALEE. BE IT IN MALARVADI ,THATTATHIN MARYATHU ,VADAKKANSELFI, THE INNOCENCE OF CHARACTERS IS NOT MODERNISED ,BUT ANADHAM DID IT SO .THE FILM ANADHAM WAS A GOOD CONCEPT ,NICELY PICTURED BUT CHARACTERS WERE SEEMED BIT AFFLUENT ,AND THIS IS WHERE THE MALAYALEES DO NOT WANT TO BOTHER IT,BECAUSE THE LOWER MIDDLE CLASS IS AVERSE TO THE RICH UPPER MIDDLE CLASS . GANESH RAJ COULD HAVE TOUCHED MORE HEARTS WITH SAME CONCEPT IF HE HAD CHOSEN TO PORTRAY CHARACTERS WHO WERE NOT FROM HIS OWN STRATA OF SOCIETY .CINEMAYIL PATTINI KANIKAN PATTILLA SHERIYANU ,ENNALUM ESHTTAM POLE KASHULLA EZHUPERUDE KATHA ATHRA KASHTTAPETTU NENJILETTANDA KARYAM MALAYAALIKILLALLO. CINEMA HIT AYIRIKAM BUT WILL BE ONE IN SUCH MANY MOVIES.
