  • ‘Makkhi was born 16 years ago’

    In a free-wheeling chat, director S.S Rajamouli talks about 'Makkhi' and how the idea was born out of his father's story sessions

    'Makkhi' is an action animation film about the revenge of a super fly. Originally named 'Eega' in Telugu, the film was an instant success and was also released in Tamil as 'Naane' and 'Eecha' in Malayalam. The film is the result of a story which S. S. Rajamouli heard 16 years ago from his father. "At that time I wasn't even an assistant director," he says. After churning out blockbusters (Vikramarkudu' which has been remade in Hindi as 'Rowdy Rathore' and 'Maryada Ramanna' (2010) which has been remade as 'Son Of Sardaar'), Rajamouli wanted to try his hand at something which will appeal to all generations.

  • How Manoj Kumar inspired KLPD

    Sanjay Khanduri’s film ‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli’ is inspired by the veteran filmmaker’s ‘Roti Kapada Aur Makaan’

    This might be the most unusual combination in terms of inspiration, but it is true. The title of director Sanjay Khanduri’s film ‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli’ is inspired by Veteran filmmaker Manoj Kumar’s hit film, ‘Roti Kapada Aur Makaan’. “Title of a film is closest interpretation of the story as per the director. If Steven Soderbergh can keep abstract name like ‘Sex Lies and Video Tapes’, Dibanker Banerji as ‘Love Sex aur Dhoka’ or Director-actor Manoj Kumar as ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’ then why not ‘Kismet Love Paisa Dilli’. The thought that went into this title is actually inspired from ‘Roti Kapda aur Makan’ the three needs of a man which in modern day has changed Kismet, Love and Paisa,” says Sanjay.
