After successful accolades for his youngsters’s movie, Jeerjimbe, Karthik Saragur is now basking within the limelight of his just-released movie, Bheemasena Nalamaharaja, which was launched on Amazon Prime Video on October 29.
Produced by Pushkara Mallikarjunaiah, Rakhit Shetty and Hemanth Kumar, the movie stars Aravind Iyer and Arohi Narayan.
Karthik, who has labored with the likes of Sunil Kumar Desai, TN Seetharam and Nagesh Kukunoor as a dressing up designer, talks to MetroPlus about Bheemasena…, path and what filmmaking means to him.
What’s the inspiration behind Bheemasena…?
The essential thought for the story got here from director Easy Suni. I constructed the script round that. Meals performs an vital function within the movie. I grew up in a household of hoteliers and cooks. We eat on a regular basis and but are by no means grateful to the individuals who cook dinner for us. Equally we typically don’t admire relationships and other people both.
Simply as meals is the results of elements coming collectively in the fitting amount, a movie ought to have all the pieces in the fitting proportion for an excellent story. Filmmaking is rather like cooking — over cook dinner it and the meals will get burnt, in case you do much less it’s undercooked.
Might you discuss concerning the casting?
I consider that nothing may be made, not even cinema. All of the individuals within the movie occurred to be part of it. As soon as they had been solid, it was as much as every of them to establish with their character and painting it on display.
You’ve got made a 140-episode documentary sequence on Bengaluru…
It is without doubt one of the longest documentaries made on any metropolis. Regardless of that we’ve got lined simply 40 % of the historical past of the town. The sequence was born out of my ardour for the town. Bengaluru has an awesome historical past. Initially the documentary was created for a personal channel, however now, we plan to edit it and make it accessible to all.
You’ve got dabbled in all features of filmmaking. Does that aid you work higher or do you’re feeling it’s best to specialize in only one side of filmmaking?
A director has to learn about all of the features of filmmaking. It is sort of a lady protecting her dwelling. She is conscious of each want and takes on each duty. For me path isn’t a job, however a lifestyle the place it’s a must to care for each side of the movie and the individuals concerned in it.
Jeerjimbe has carried out nicely. Did you anticipate this?
No, however what saddens me is why do we have to have a separate section known as youngsters’s movie. We don’t want such categorisation as 40 % cent of the film-watching inhabitants are youngsters. We educate them quite a lot of issues, however we don’t educate them on watch and admire a movie. We have to do this as a result of youngsters and tales go hand-in-hand.
Jeerjimbe was aimed to deal with the issue of the lady little one. I wished the movie to succeed in each nook of the nation. I’m proud of the best way Jeerjimbe has been accepted by the younger and previous alike.
