THE CHENNAI ONLINE.COM REVIEW

A movie on making a movie News
Anish Kuruvilla, who played the hero’s brother in Sekhar Kammula’s Telugu film 'Anand', has made a 90-minute film, 'Confessions of a Film-maker: Naa Video Diary’.

The film is all about a guy who loses faith in the system and culture prevailing in the Telugu film industry after failing to direct a film in the last minute despite being in the industry for 10 years.
The film is made with a crew of only three, including Anish, who wore different hats as a scriptwriter, cinematographer, director and producer. Kamala Kumara, who played a supporting role in 'Godavari', played the main lead in the film and came out with an impressive performance.

The film talks about how the people in the industry make use of aspiring directors as pimps and how Telugu films are becoming a reflection of sex. It documents the 10 days in the life of an aspiring doctor who commits suicide at the end of the 10th day after editing all that has been shot.
The film received big applause from the audience and was hailed as a bold step. Anish Kuruvilla has been associated with director Sekhar Kammula from his 'Dollar Dreams' days and has been a co-director and executive producer for all of Sekhar Kammula’s films including the latest one, 'Happy Days'.

"It is a small budget film. If I have to go for theatrical release, I will definitely have to spend more than what I spent for the film," he said.
Though Anish said the release of the film depends on the feedback after the screening, he said he was not going to release it after the screening but assured that he will release it in DVD format. "Though it can't bring change in the prevailing culture in the industry, it encourages one to speak up," opines Anish.

The best thing is that he assured that in future, if he makes any films, he would be bound by his 'Confessions of a Film-maker: Naa Video Diary’.
Though he is just 30 years old, the understanding he has about films is astounding. Though many didn't agree with the film targeting a few in the industry, it was appreciated.

We can see in the film the lead character holding placards at various places in the city, reading, 'Cinema will die if nepotism lives', 'Open your eye for a better cinema', 'Respect our time and money', 'Film-press stop lying'.
The movie talks about how the directors, despite being the creators of a film, have become pawns in the hands of a few influential directors and heroes.

Though people from the film fraternity like Gunnam Gangaraju, Sekhar Kammula, R Narayana Murthy and Tammareddy Bharadwaja, attended the screening, they were tight-lipped when it came to giving their comments.

CELEBRATING My 100th post, a poem written for me and my film.

Hello Anish
I havent seen your movie, but after seeing the promos and various reviews on your blogsite, pfc and youtube....I really think you have tried something.
All I can wish you is best of luck and I have written a poem for you titled---- "confessions of a film maker"

Confessions of a Filmmaker ---Prashu (Prashanth Mahagaonkar)

I walked once
just once
with thousand of heels
through mirages of reels

I met a few
just a few
who counted my steps
with taps and claps

I shivered once
just once
when eyes stared
and future glared

I felt the dew
yes, the dew
caressing my fears
stopping my tears

I gave birth
birth at last
to what I feel and see
in this vicious sea

Will I live?
Will my voice live?
my few will decide the ends
for they are my friends


best of luck anish
Prashu

CINEGOERS.COM REVIEW

There is very little in Na Video Diary that we have not seen before (I remember watching a cross over film The Missed Call during the Film Fest) and yet it works, partly because the formula is simply so strong that it’s like you’d have to work doubly hard to break it, partly because the person in the director’s chair knows how to make a good reality cum parody fest and here the parody is smarter than the Telugu film industry that he is mocking.

However, if you aren’t hunting for a towering work of genius, and want to watch a good raw flick that is not regular, but makes you think of the kind of cinema you were being fed with all these years, then this is what you need. Kamal Kamaraju takes you through ten days of his life, and gives you a peep into the frustrations of a filmmaker who eventually shoots himself after the industry turns its back on him.

A man of self respect, a wannabe director Kamal portrays the angst of a man deprived of luck and opportunity in his life. He talks of the Babudom, the rampant sycophancy of the actors, actresses, their fake lives, the unwinding work in Krishna Nagar and Indira Nagar, the fans associations, the glorification of stars and the treatment and status accorded to directors in the industry.

The one and a half hour film doesn’t scandalise you with the liberty with which Anish, the director uses expletives. It makes every film journalist who writes review or an article with a commercial interest, every actor/actress who revels in the star status, the indulgence with which they are treated hide their faces in shame. If the Censor Board doesn’t release, it will be one missed opportunity to bring something new to a tired genre.

GREATANDHRA.COM REVIEW

We have witnessed 'Naa Video Diary'- Confessions of the film maker, the boldest movie ever made in the history of 75-year old-Telugu film industry.

How a film maker goes bold and uses his Freedom of Expression completely? How a film maker used filthiest language in the film to make it natural? What is the meaning of being non-hypocritical? How are the things moving in Film industry? We can understand everything watching this mind-blowing revolutionary film.

Well, it was made by Aneesh, the close pal of Sekhar Kammula. Kamal Kamaraj (paired up with Neetu Chandra in Godavari) acted in the film. It's the film that was made on the 'confessions of a film maker'.

Story Line:

An aspiring director spends 10 years of time in film industry struggling to find a chance. But he finds nothing. He wants to commit suicide. Then out of frustration he makes a film of his own by asking his friend to shoot him for 10 days naturally. All that he speaks will be recorded in that.

What's recorded?

The aspiring director says many things about film industry and its celebrities.

Here are a few snippets out of his speech in unedited mode.

"What's this film industry? People come here with high aspirations imagining many things and start staying in Krishna Nagar.
"Who are these Babus? Were does this word come from? Always the directors who work with these so-called babus enquire, 'Babu Garu lecharaa"", etc etc. What do these Babus do? We know a babu who feels he is a great actor. He knows no acting other than shouting 'hehe he ..oho oho ho' (the name of this hero is not used directly)"

"Do you know why Sunil, Venu Madhav and all call heroes anna, babai and all? That's for security. If they find no films in future they can rely on these babais and annas to put them in their films on obligation. It's a hypocritical field".

"Some heroes say that there is acting in their blood. If there is acting in blood, what would be there in uchcha?"

A scene was shown this way: Beside the hoarding of Chiranjeevi's Charitable Trust, a placard is placed mentioned, "Open Your Eyes For Better Movies". That is the satire thrown on Chiranjeevi.

He hasn't spared any hero in this 95 minute film.

The film was screened last night (12th May) in Prasad's labs to which Tammareddy Bharadwaja, Gunnam Gangaraju, R Narayana Murthy, IMAX Prasad, Madhura Entertainment Sridhar, Sekhar Kammula and many journalists had made their presence.

Aneesh said that it is the first and last show in theater.

He also said that he is not going to release this film outside as the censor would cut the film to 9 minutes if attempted doing so.

A young female journalist asked, "Aneesh! It would had been better had you cut down the dialogues with words like gudda and sallu". (Yes! The journalist too asked boldly literally uttering the words loudly)

Gunnam Gangaraju also questioned the same.

Aneesh said that he wanted to showcase the film naturally without any filter.

Aneesh said that he is going to send that to censor in USA and release there in the form of DVDs. The full-version of the film also discussed about castiesm in film industry it seems.

The film was made in 5 days (it was made in 28 days! this writer didnt check facts with me) and made the audiences sit attentive to every second of it. Aneesh says that he plans to sell internet rights of this film.

THE TOTAL TOLLYWOOD.COM REVIEW

Confessions of a film maker is written, directed and produced by Anish. Though there are a few characters in the film, the only lead role in the film is done by Kamal Kamaraju. The film is about an aspiring film maker's take on how the film industry is now mafia-like. It tries to show the frustration of an aspiring film maker in the present scenario of film industry.

The film starts off with a note that a dead body is found on a staircase. It is identified to be that of Kamal Kamaraju's and the mode of death is suicide. Kamal records the last 10 days of his life and makes it as a video diary. This is recovered from his belongings after his suicide. There are instructions on how to edit the video and that is what is the rest of the film.

Kamal Kamaraju gave excellent performance in the role of Kamal Kamaraju himself. Frustration, agony, hopelessness, helplessness kind of expressions are consistent on his face and body language. Kamal and director Anish have got some guts in making this film. The content of the film is bold, starking reality, thought provoking, opiniated and abusive.

Director Kamal in the film has a great script but he fails several attempts to launch it as a film. He is frustrated because he has been working in the industry for the last 10 years and has been in good books with many makers as a hard worker. Yet, his film never kicks off. The reason, he attributes, is that the industry is run by stars rather than creators. 'That is why we dont see original scripts', claims the film.
Nepotism, mediocrity are the main targets of attack in the film. The script comments on almost all the top stars and recently released films. There is no beating around the bush for these comments. The comments are very specific and can be easily associated with those stars and those movies. The film also tries to discuss on how the present generation of films are sowing bad seeds in children's minds. 'A is for Adults in the entire world but here A is for all' kind of slogans (referring to A certificate) read strikingly in the film.

Leaving content aside, Anish did a good job with the making of the film. Novelty - is the word here. From the word go, the film narrates in a different style. The camera always focussed on one character narrating 10 days of his life. Run time of the film is 90 minutes and the audience are glued to the seats for the entire time. However, there are a few parts in the film that were dragged a bit. Some trimming could have worked better.

The side of the coin that I liked in this film is the guts of the makers, few facts spoken, a different movie, Kamal's performance and the tribute paid to classic movies. The other side of it is the abusive language, opiniated message and no proper justification for the frustration of the director. He loses his heart with just an attempt? And though the film runs a disclaimer that it is strictly for people older than 18, the language used in the film is still unacceptable.

The film shows lot of frustration. Lots and lots of it. He shows his frustration on the film stars ('Stop making films for yourselves'), media ('Stop Lying') and the audience. But is it in the right direction? Film 'Industry' is about entertainment business. There is lot of money, livelihood and sustainance involved in this business. The makers have their own graph in doing a film. For example, compare the openings of a debut film of a superstar's son and that of a new debut hero. That should prove the point. It is the human tendency. If Tata brand released a new car and some tom dick and harry company released almost the same car, which one would you buy?
The argument can continue against the content on the above lines. Some of the points raised in the film might be valid. At the same time, they can be argued against from any view point. That is why the Confessions of a film maker comes with some bold (frustrated) reality but is also strongly opiniated. One more thing I accept with the director is 'No one should be bigger than cinema. Cinema should be bigger than those involved'.

(As told by the director, this could be the first and last screening. The film might release on DVD soon and also might be telecasted on some websites).

THE TELUGUCINEMA.COM REVIEW

Anish Kuruvilla, executive producer for Anand and Godavari, has made a 90 minute English and Telugu film titled – Naa Video Diary (Confessions of a filmmaker in English). It is set against film world especially Telugu cinema industry. The film has not yet cleared by the Censor Board; I believe it won’t be passed either. It was shown to the media and other selected persons at Prasad Preview theatre on Saturday (May 12, 2007).

Naa Video Dairy is more of a documentary than a film. Na Video Diary is essentially about Kamal Kamaraju (played by the actor by the same name. He is second lead in Godavari), a wannabe director’s vengeance against the star system in Telugu films, the nepotism, the fans culture, babugiri, etc. Such things are also dealt by Vamsi in Sitara and Krishnavamsi in Khadgam.

But Anish’s film is totally different. It is direct scathing attack on the system. He parodies, criticizes the stars by calling their names directly and attacks with expletive words. Shocking and outrageous at times, the film raises valid points and yet it doesn’t enlighten us. Moreover the narrative mode that he has chosen is also very modern (though such kind of films are nothing new those who are aware of world cinema). But you can’t completely agree with the film.

The protagonist who shoots himself (by a pistol) after he is ‘disgusted’ with the industry shoots his ‘story’ for 10 days. Each day is shown to us and in between he ‘confesses’ about his experiences and his general observations about Telugu film industry. In the process he attacks on Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, Balakrishna, Venkatesh, NTR Jr, and Mahesh Babu (indirectly), Telugu heroines, producers and film press.

Some of his comments are go like this (I have avoided filthy language that he has used)

1. Here everyone calls a hero Babu. That means we are naukris of the stars

2. The star sons proclaim that acting is in thier blood. How can blood possess acting, yaar?

3. Nepotism rules. Chiranjeevi’s brother Pawan Kalyan came and a whole
others from the family have come now. From NTR family, Balakrishna, NTR Jr and From Akkineni family, Nagarjuna, Sumanth..etc

4. Pokes fun at acting styles of stars

Some of his placards (the scene of placards is superb technically and cinematically though), inserted comments, some of protagonist’s dialogues go like these..

1. The hero stands in front of Chiranjeevi Blood and Eye Bank and his placard says, “Open up your eyes for good cinema.”

2. Vajrotsavam = Bullshitotsavam

3. If I am shot, you know whom to blame..(it is about Balakrishna)

4. Are Movies made for us or for themselves?

5. Watching films may not be the best orgasm, it makes them get off.

6. Why don’t our filmmakers make films to that standard of world cinema

Anish points seem justifiable but they are contradictory in nature and perceived in myopic view and at times look perverted (pointing middle finger, using F word).

The film is technically superb. The editing and camera work is amazing. With liberal usage of several songs from all the musicians from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to Rehman, the music also is highly enriching. Anish really have knack for making audiences sit through the film. His dialogues are powerful and makes us think. His dialogues so casual and yet poetic in serious situations. As a director he shows promise as taking style is of superior quality.

It is tough for a single actor to carry off the entire film on his shoulders for 90 minutes. Kamal Kamalraj has done terrific job. It is clear that he has worked hard physically too for this film – he is shown as bald, with lengthy beard and with clean shave in the film in various stages. Kamal has shown the variations. His dialogue delivery is also very powerful.

The film gives some laughs as it is raw and totally earthy. But it is not genius work nor it is a path breaking film as it made out to be. The film’s hero fails to get a ‘break’ even after 10 years of experience and graduating to executive producer. So it is a loser’s anguish. It is his problem but the loser makes sweeping comments.

As I am coming out of Prasad’s preview theatre, a friend of mine who also watched made a comment - “Neeku kadupu noppi vaste, nannu tablets vesumantavenduku.” Yes, that sums up it.

The director should know that..

1. He should be remembered that Chiranjeevi had also done some meaningful cinema like Manchu Pallaki, Aaradhana, Rudraveena (he also produced it) earlier. It is not that he doesn’t have taste for good cinema.

2. People don’t come to have orgasm, man. Naval gazing is not sin as you made out to be. In Hollywood and matured World Cinema, they go further and show heroines naked.

3. Yes, quality of Telugu films is not good. It is not discussed in festivals circuit and world cinema. But why don’t make them yourself? If we send your Godavari and Anand to international film festivals they laugh at them too. It would have been good if you made such films and made comments. Any person can comment on the standards of Telugu cinema, and trying to make it good is welcomed by everyone but deriving enjoyment by making perverted comments on stars is highly deplorable.

4. The protagonist in your film makes heroes and producers as buffoons and undisciplined guys. What about directors. Aren’t they directors who make films going over budget? Many of them promise moon and dish out ‘Sh..”. It would have been if you have talked about them.

P.S: A placard says, "Press, stop lying." So we are not lying here. We have written what we felt.

THE IDLEBRAIN REVIEW

jeevi rating: Not Applicable
Punchline: brave attempt
Genre: Parallel
Banner: Kuruvilla Films

Cast: Kamal Kamaraju

Story, screenplay, direction, producer: Anush Kuruvilla
Release Date: NA

Story
The Confessions of a filmmaker (Naa Video Diary) is an autobiography of a person who is about to die within 10 days. This film goes on a flashback narrative style. Kamal Kamaraju (Kamal Kamaraju) is in the Telugu film industry for the past 10 years working for various Telugu blockbusters under direction department. He is the frustrated by the way Telugu films are being made and also gets ditched by his girl friend. He calls his pal and ask him to shoot him for a self-made documentary where he records his moments for the last 10 days. The rest of the story is about how he expresses his personal experiences with the film industry.

Positive points:
1. The director used a digital handycam (high definition one) to shoot the entire film. It is a fresh beginning in Telugu film industry as it gives an opportunity for the director wannabes to shoot their films in shoe-string budget using digital cameras.
2. The basic intention of making the film is good. The director succeeded in expressing what he wanted to tell.
3. The film has only one character in the entire film. Kamal Kamaraju exhibited entire gamut of emotions successfully.
4. The episodes in which Kamal criticizes Telugu film industry and displays placards are good.
5. Director took the help of popular Hindi and English tunes to narrate the story.

Negative Points:
1. Films of these kind should be done with passion. But we find more hatred in the content than passion.
2. A few episodes are little boring. The film is made with the intention of having a runtime of at least one and half hours. The film would be more interesting, if it is trimmed a lot.
3. The director took the liberty to use extreme expletives to get his point across. The same intensity should have been expressed through emotions than using expletives.
4. The postproduction work done in terms of adding visuals is little taxing to the eyes.

Analysis: It is a purely a personal film. For every issue, there are both positives and negatives. The director should have taken balanced road of approach towards expressing the problem than going into complete negative mode. He went to the extent of accusing top Telugu film heroes and blamed the entire Telugu film industry. He also expressed that it is Telugu film industry that is influencing the masses with mediocre films where as it is the masses who influence the makers about what kind of films to be made. On a whole, 'Confessions of a Filmmaker' (COAFM) is an honest and brave film.

Tailpiece: The basic premise of the film is highly debatable. There is a frustrated assistant director who wants to direct a film. He is dumped because hero did not find the script good enough. He thinks that he could direct a good film. Before making their debut as director, all director wannabes think that they are of Mani Ratnam and Ram Gopal Varma caliber. But it turns out that most of these debutant directors deliver miserable films. When these debutant directors are not able to direct films with minimum basics, where will be credibility to a director wannabe who thinks that entire film industry is wrong and he is right?

back from the battle....my review




so how did it all go?
well...firstly....it was one of the most emotionally trying experiences of my life. i knew i was playing with fire...and i have been burnt to some extent...but then i knew all along, this was going to be the case.
almost everyone i met, thought or asked me....why are you so frustrated? why make this film? why be so provocative? why? why?...
my answer to that...will be....you know, i asked myself, if i was representing truth...and no i am not talking about the characters motives here, i am talking about all that he talked about....

forget it let me re-phrase everything...india as a society does not permit us to speak about our feelings....because there is a lot of emphasis put on how someone will react or feel when they hear you out...i knew from the start, this will appeal only to someone who can look at telugu cinema objectively...from a pure cinema point of view...and if you look at telugu cinema from that angle....you will questions its value system....if you look at telugu cinema from an indian perspective, i.e from the perspective of someone who prefers not to criticize publicly.....well you are not going to hear anything from them....

my film, confessions is made from the point of view of an idealistic film-maker.....an idealistic filmmaker who has been called frustrated etc....but for me he is an idealist....someone who stands for what cinema,pure cinema must stand for....and its from that perspective this film was made....

so it will get peoples blood boiling that i make fun of the system (the stars in this case).....i understand that....its not polite...its not politically correct....

well, my one question/answer to that is....is everything our stars have done so far been politically correct?....if yes...then my film doesnt have a case....if no...then my film does....what do you say?

we love the jokes that the american media makes on its president...we love all the stand up comics and their take on hollywood....when we can see that, hear that...and be objective there....why cant we do the same in this case...we cant...simply because we are not built that way....nor was it easy for me to do what i did...i had to push myself...it didnt come naturally...but it did come, because it was an inconvinient truth....
i strongly feel, one must use to film to express his/her deepest fears....his deepest secrets...it would be a tragedy if it didnt....
i am not saying my film is in anyway a piece of art....but i tried to approach it like art...painting on the canvas....all that i had seen and heard....

so is all that i have seen and heard the truth...some of it is...some maybe exaggerated....but it helped me tell me story....
why did the hero have to die? why did he have to murder someone? well the answer to that is...my film never had a 'hero'.....it only had villains....

see my film in that perspective....and i think the point will come across....
ill leave you with a few images from the night before...after which i will post all the reviews so far on film....

thanks again...for everyone who understood me and my film...and for those who didnt...i'm sorry...i wish i could have made it more universal...
my next film will be just that.....UNIVERSAL.

ill have some more pics uploaded later...but here are some for now...

the other thing is i finally got the projector i needed, that will guarantee a fulto movie experience to all concerned...so thats another good thing...
and finally the mix down will be completed tomorrow....so thats the final frontier technically with the film.....
so thats another good thing...

i have printed out invites for the show, and i will be busy from the day after,taking appointments and pleading people to come for the show....i just hope i dont give up with the invites, when i have a daily attack of nerves...oh well...

hmm...man i thought i had a lot to say...but i cant seem to think, what else i wanted to write about....
the press is being taken care off....
i need to make sure,everyone is catered for properly during and after the show...
i need to prepare a very short speech....
i need to cover all of this with my cam, so i can share this with everyone reading the site....and?

hmmm....man i dont know how to answer half the questions they ask me....i wonder how i will figure it out then...
hmmmm...

ok...will stop for now....
