Pavan K Chauhan: A film is a film and budget does not count
At a time when the industry is rife with competition at the box office, filmmaker Pavan Kumar Chauhan is not one to get apprehensive. The filmmaker, who will be making his debut with the film EKKEES TAREEKH SHUBH MUHURAT in November, says that things like budget have no impact on the audience today and is confident that his film will get its due share. “A film is a film and budget does not count. If you see, many big-budget films have also been rejected by the audience and small budget films have got a better response. You need to have a good story. There should be justice done by the director and actor to the characters in the film. In today's times, every week has 4-5 film releases, so how long will you wait? All I can say is that there is a huge competition and your work matters a lot. I feel that our middle class,
a unique story will make us stand out,” he says.
The film, which stars Sanjay Mishra, Mukesh Tiwari and Brijendra Kala, was challenging, admits the filmmaker. “Making a comedy film becomes tougher when you decide to keep away from a slapstick comedy. In such a situation, the director needs to have a great understanding with his actors. They need to understand the depth and importance of every dialogue used in the film. Then you have to play with the correct timing,” he says.
EKKEES TAREEKH SHUBH MUHURAT is directed by Pavan Kumar Chauhan, the film stars Sanjay Mishra, Mukesh Tiwari, Brijendra Kala, Bhagwan Tiwari, Kamalika Banerjee, Maahesh Shaarmaa, Chandrachoor Rai, Kajal Jain, Hiya Banerjee. The film is slated to release on 2nd November 2018.
