Bollywood News | Manish Mundra, founder of Drishyam films is preparing to make his first Bengali film dgtl

Lived in a village in Jharkhand. Childhood spent in deprivation. But he dreamed of telling another story on the big screen. And Manish Mundra, the leader of ‘Drishyam Films’, made that dream come true. The head of the production company, which gave audiences memorable films like ‘Masan’, ‘Newton’, ‘Ramprasad Ki Tervi’, took the lead this time. His first film “Siya” was released on Friday. The director weaves a story about the rape of a village girl and the uphill struggle to bring the culprits to justice. But why did Manish sit in the director’s seat after waiting so long? When he came to promote the film in Kolkata, he replied to Anandabazar Online, “I was not ready for so long.” There is a time for everything. Now seems like the right time to tell this story. So I did it boldly.”

There’s no big face like that in the first photo. There’s newcomer Pooja Pandey and familiar face Vineet Kumar Singh. A story that we would perhaps not think of making a film. Because there is no guarantee of box office success. But ‘Drishyam Films’ has never made a movie with the box office in mind. ‘Maasan’ had Richa Chadha, Vicky Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi in the lead roles at that time. While Richa was a familiar face then, Vicky and Shweta were brand new. Now Vicky is a top tier member of Bollywood. Shweta has also come a long way in her own way. But Manish never releases a movie with the box office in mind.

“Maasan” was released in 2015. At that time, OTT didn’t have a craze. But now the abundance of OTT has made it easier for other movie genres? Manish doesn’t think so at all. He said, “The biggest problem with OTTs in India is that they are also chasing stars. Previously, when a new director made a film independently, Hall could somehow sell off the satellite assets even if he wasn’t coming out. But now the contract with any OTT must be done in advance. And then they ask to add dance songs or throw a star. If you look closely, you will understand that the number of independent films has decreased a lot. No film can be screened anywhere without a connection to a major corporation.”

The spirit is a story that you wouldn't think of making a movie.  Because there is no guarantee of box office success.

Manish, however, is optimistic. He believes that Hindi cinema is also going through a lot of changes. Despite the failures of many big-budget movies, some smaller production houses are working independently these days. He hopes young directors will tell stories on screen that will convey a social message to audiences.

What will he do after that? Manish said, “I worked with Paramvrat (Chattopadhyay) at Ramprasad Ki Tervi. He is a great actor. We have become good friends. If he wasn’t busy shooting, I would have met him this time too. But I have a script on my desk right now. I want to make a film in Bengal urgently.”
