A CREATIVE SPOT – VIDHU VINOD CHOPRA FILM FESTIVAL

The Hindi film industry – a place where everybody is a dreamer, the aspirants hope, desire and persevere till they get what they aim for, however long it may take. Seldom do we see a struggler from outside a family legacy of filmmaking, Vidhu Vinod Chopra is one such director-producer, who had a dream and his great film-making capability has given us some memorable films to watch more than once.

Films are parallel lives or alter-egos for some passionate audiences. A well-made film, whichever the genre, always becomes a friend and confidante for a film-lover.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s first film was ‘Murder At Monkey Hill’, that won him the ‘National Film Award for Best Short Experimental Film’ and the ‘Guru Dutt Memorial Award’ for Best Student Film. This was followed by a short documentary highlighting the plight of India’s destitute children, called ‘An Encounter with Faces’, which was nominated for an Academy Award in the Documentary Short Subject category in 1979.

All his films have by far been different yet a great watch. From his short films to feature films like ‘Khamosh’,  ‘Parinda’, ‘1942 A Love Story’, ‘Parineeta’, ‘Munnabhai series’ and more recently ‘3 Idiots’, we see creativity flow beautifully in all of the films.

Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better."

I quite agree.
