NAGESH KUKUNOOR – THE ORIGNIAL RETURNS WITH LAKSHMI

NAGESH KUKUNOOR – THE ORIGNIAL RETURNS WITH LAKSHMI

Nagesh Kukunoor may not always get the credit for it, but he, of all before and after, represents the true Independent Filmmaking spirit in India. His first film, Hyderabad Blues, was made at a shoe string budget in true Indie spirit. I mean when you spend Rs 2-3 crores that is not really Indie filmmaking, but what we saw in HB was Indie at its best. Not only did HB did super business in the box office,...

AJAY GEHI – WORKING WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST

  There has got to be something about Ajay Gehi. In the short span that he has called Bollywood home, apart from being the lead in The Good Road, which is India’s entry to the Oscar in 2013, he has worked with directors such as RGV, Vishal Bahardwaj and Mani Ratnam.
