My new movie Pancharangi opened with a bang! Did my team and I anticipate it? NOPE! I am Pawan Kumar, the story and screenplay writer of Pancharangi. I am also the ‘Lucky’ character in the movie. In the archives you can read about how the film was made. Have fun!
Watch the full movie,

All I can write now is that the movie has released. Audience are taking it very well. I so badly want to write stuff but not finding the time or the right mood to type it down. So I shall simply post some links here and later in the future add some stuff! Click on the pictures to see Pancharangi Albums on Picasa

23 days of shooting. 23 days of tanning and sweating. 100+ cans of footage. unlimited learnings.
I am back home now. We have completed about 80% of the movie, a few more scenes in Bangalore and songs is all that remains. There is so much to tell, like always I don’t know where to start from. But I hope to make this read interesting and to give you an insight on how the shooting went on and where we are heading.
I left for Mangalore on Feb 13th. I was accompanying Yogaraj and Tiyagu, the cinematographer. We went 4 days before the shoot date. We were put up at the Red Rock resort, good place with a swimming pool. All of us went around the locations we had zeroed down on and had hardcore discussions. Tweaking scenes according to the challenges the locale offered. And just before the shoot we cancelled one of the locations and that led to a whole lot of rescheduling but all was under control.
The camera started rolling. The making is way different from the manasaare. This time it is more about conversations and performances. Deliberately we have cut down heavily on technicals. Look forward for a whole lot of fun dialogues and wonderful acting from a very talented and experienced cast.
We started shooting a day after Nidhi’s Birthday, but that wouldn’t stop her from constantly reminding me of giving her some surprise and out of compulsion we had to celebrate her birthday and yawn it was so boring. Happy Birthday Nidhi honey (for safety sake I am wishing you again)
The house we were shooting in was called Rajini house, we gave it that reference because apparently the superstar Rajinikant had shot a movie there and that story is told to everyone. Its one of those old houses with the central open space. The favorite place for everyone was the chavdi, its a space outside the house next to the entrance door. You’d find the entire cast sitting there and chatting and laughing all the time.
