Last time when we met Imtiaz Ali to discuss Rockstar, there were many conspiracies and accusations. But since some of you appreciated our effort, we thought let’s try it again. This time it was done in a bit formal way. Film was Paan Singh Tomar, guests were Tigmanshu Dhulia (Director) and Sanjay Chouhan (Writer). Location – PVR, Juhu.

To get more time for Q & A, PVR helped us by cutting down the time for commercials, making the interval much shorter and delaying the next show by few minutes. But even then we could hardly manage some 20minutes of interaction. Because even the next show was housefull and people were getting desperate to get in. So we quickly wrapped it up and went outside. Aha, back to the stairs. And a filmmaker really needs a cigarette in his hand to open up. Watch the two videos and you will get what i am saying.

I saw the film on friday morning with just 15 people in the theater. And then i saw it again on wednesday night. This time it was a housefull show. A good film finding its audience is a great feeling.

And many thanks to Anurag Kashyap, Shiladitya Bora and PVR Cinemas for making it possible.

07:03 – Irrfan ne apne paise aadhe kar diye. Maine apne paise aadhe kar diye.

  10. I have a query. When was the Kero Mama shwon in the movie?
    It was not shown in the shows here at Bangy.

    • arti says:

      Kero mama remix was used only for promotion…it was not part of the movie…tigmanshu said he did not like the idea of using kero mama for promoting the film though he agreed it might have worked with the youth

  11. Kumar Gautam says:

    Its so honest for tigmanshu to confess that “Mad women” scene was inspired from “Bandit Queen” but I guess he forget to mention that particular scene, it was there in Bandit Queen…in place of mad women there was a “kid” (girl) lost in chaos…In the scene when all almost all die…the kid on the ground keeps on wailing as bandits leave…

    anyone please correct me if I am wrong?

  12. Smita says:

    It was such a great feeling to watch it in Bangalore in a theater full of people- I am assuming not entirely from central or north India- who actually got each and every nuance of the narrative bang on and appreciated it so much. Sanjay ji’s screenplay not only got the language but the humor of bundelkhand down pat, even in pathos, the irreverent humor that is so typical of the land was captured flawlessly. Congratulations sir!
