Nitin Chandra has been constantly in the lime light ever since he has announced his ambitious bhojpuri movie DESWA. From his busy schedule, Nitin Chandra spared some precious time with our correspondant talkin bout his movie...
First of all, directing and producing such a big budget movie in bhojpuri, how did the idea come around ?
Bhojpuri is my mother tongue. My mother is from Champaran and father from Buxar. I graduated in film education and completed masters degree from University of Pune. I was working with Tanuja Chandra and later Dibakar Banerjee as assistant director. The plight of bhojpuri cinema drawn my attention and I found that there is huge potential in this segment and thus I made a bhojpuri film.
How will DESWA be different from other bhojpuri movies ?
DESWA is like any other world class film with real location, real characters, real situations and real performances. This kind of film is never made in the history of Bhojpuri Cinema. Only when you watch it, you will come to know what I am talking about.
Sources inform us that DESWA will also be screened in multiplexes, do you expect the multiplex audience to come and watch a bhojpuri movie ?
DESWA is a movie which will attract the educated bhojpuria audience. There has been no attempt made to attract the educated bhojpuria segment of this country. Most of the bhojpuri films are laced with pornographic type images in form of dance numbers or double meaning dialogues. DESWA is clean, social and crime oriented film which will make you think. This is first Multiplex film in Bhojpuri.
The normal bhojpuri audience is the one which pays 20,30,or 40 rs for the bhojpuri movies, do you expect them to go to mall for DESWA ?
There is a very small segment of bhojpuri speaking people who see bhojpuri films and that is the reason why bhojpuri films are low on budget and poor in quality. Like I said the major segment of bhojpuri society doesnt see bhojpuri film and they are waiting see a classic bhojpuri film. But same time DESWA will be a hit with single screen audience too.
DESWA's music has been much talked about... What is its specialty?
For the first time a bhojpuri film will witness biggest singers of this country like Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Mika, Swanand Kirkire, Sharda Sinha and Bharat Sharma Vyas together. Not a single track are inspired or copied from any other song like it is mostly done in other bhojpuri films.
Rather than choosing the stars from Bhojpuri film industry, u went for the bollywood faces, why ?
Though I had approached some stars of bhopjuri but later I realised that this film need some realistic actors than stars, DESWA is a kind of movie which would have required acting which is real and subtle. It is a privilege that actors like Ashish Vidyarthi, Pankaj Jha and Neetu Chandra are contributing to the growth of bhojpuri cinema. We must celebrate this occasion, it is paving way to many other film makers.
Does this mean that while you are making international level bhojpuri movie, not a single actor of bhojpuri film industry is not capable of getting a role in it ?
There are few faces in DESWA who have done bhojpuri movies in past. As you rightly said that this is International level bhojpuri cinema.
When is it releasing?
It will be releasing most probably in January.
hello sir good morning ..........
