Birbal introduces a couple of firsts

Filmmaker-actor MJ Srinivas has introduced a concept he terms 'freeze shot' in his upcoming trilogy, and the first film also marks the debut of many theatre artists

Published: 05th June 2018

RJ-turned-actor-director, MJ Srinivas has completed shooting his third project. And the name has been generating curiosity -- Birbal. The last schedule of the Birbal trilogy, whose tag line is 'Case 1 - Finding Vajramuni', was completed in Mysuru recently. 

Srinivas, who is satisfied with the way the film is taking shape says that a lot of theatre artistes and technicians are marking their debut with it. “They brought in a fresh atmosphere on the sets of the film,” he says.

The filmmaker has always attempted to bring in novel concepts in his films, and this time, he has introduced a concept he terms 'freeze shot'.

“Technically, till date, there have been shots, which are frozen. However, for Birbal, there is a sequence where all the characters and elements in the background including the rain drops will be frozen. Only one character will be exempt, and that’s me, who plays an investigator. I run in 24 frames. We actually blocked the popular Bhasyam Circle for a week to shot this sequence,” he says.

He also reveals that the Digital intermediate (DI) is currently being done in the USA. “It is all in an attempt to come out with good quality work. The texture of the film depends on the colouring,” he explains.

Birbal’s music is by Kaalacharan, and the background score is by Hitesh Sonik of Sonu Ki Tweety Ki Sweety fame. The recording for the score is taking place in Mumbai. Produced by Chandrashekar under Crystal Parks Cinemas, the trilogy begins with Birbal - Case 1 Finding Vajramuni, and will be followed by Avran Bit Evaran Bit Avaryaaru and Turuvemane.
