Operations of STAR MAKER INDIA have been put on hold for an indefinite period due to prevailing difficult times, but hope to be restored in 2021.
Musical show organizers STAR MAKER INDIA are into film production business and starting with production of artistic movies to be presented in various International film festivals under full length feature film category. Language will be English. Shooting has been scheduled mostly in Delhi. Some part of the movie will be shot in Mumbai/Goa as well. This movie is planned to be presented at CANNES FILM FESTIVAL of France and shall be released in India only after that. Story is unique and includes some suspense as well.
Sad to notice that no feature film from India has been shortlisted for competitive section at Cannes since many years. This may be because Indian film-makers are afraid to experiment during film-making as also because they are short of new ideas. This void may be filled by our film story which no doubt is going to be unique in many ways. Be a part of it and bring an award or two for your country.
Story brief: This is the story of a simple boy ‘James Rodrigues’ of Portuguese origin whose grandfather had chosen to stay back in India when Goa became independent from Portuguese rule in 1961 and Portuguese were given the option to either shift to Portugal or stay back in Goa (now part of India) with a dual citizenship. The family, all of them born in India had chosen to stay back out of love for the fellow Indians as they were in India for the last 3 generations. The story deals with the deceits James gets in the name of love when he shifts to Mumbai and Delhi, as he was very rich man surrounded by greedy people. He surely had a separate DNA from all of them and did not know how to deal with such cunning people. So, does he commit suicide when faced by a really awkward situation, or can he fight back, which seemed to be impossible at half way of the story. A sigh or shriek from the audience is expected around interval of the film when a never-seen-before situation confronts the main character. The story is adapted from real life incidents faced by the writer, (of course with exaggeration and dramatization for the sake of movie-making). Story spans a time period of 22 years from 1998 when James is seen as a emotional but bubbly young college boy to present day when he must be a mature but broken man.
We highly expect this movie to find its place in International festivals and so preferred to make it in English language.
The story is being produced, directed, written, scripted & cinematographed by James Narula and he plays the lead role as well.
We are still not been able to find the special girl for a very important role. She should be a young girl with very intense expressions that can make the audience laugh when she laughs and cry when she cries. We have started shooting for the scenes which do not require her. Her role is very important but not more than half an hour out of a total duration of 140 minutes of the movie. We must find one within next 3-4 months.
The movie is being made with a shoestring budget but remuneration for the artists is as per norms.
Another movie that is going to be a comedy (hindi) is also being planned for late 2020. You may apply to work for that as well.
VERY IMPORTANT: Please take note of this message from James:
“Hi, I am James. I am an actor/director and only I can handle what sort of co-artists I need for the movie, so I am handling the casting field myself. I have not appointed any casting directors or ‘middlemen’. If someone claims to be the one, surely he/she is a fraud. For security and privacy reasons, I have not made my personal phone number public. Even if you are not into acting field and wish to contact me for any purpose, please fill the following simple form and I will give you a call at the time of your convenience. Thank you.”
