Love works wonders when you listen to your inner voice admits Tejas Deoskar : Interviewed by Nileysh A Raje
In today’s age of social media where one’s goal, career, aspirations takes precedence it’s equally true that when it comes down to the matters of the heart love makes people tick. The love our parents enjoyed in their own way was different and how today’s college going youth or corporate executive views their love is different. Also, with easy access to SMS, Whatsapp, BBM and many more communication tools is there a secret recipe for one to be successful in love looking at the technology advancement that helps you be connected with your better half anytime anywhere?
At one time one leaves their love and goes away from their life but comes back again with passage of time only to realize that no this is my love and this is the one with whom I want to marry and spend the rest of my life.
Mumbai based writer Nileysh A Raje speaks to the Director Tejas Vijay Deoskar about his new Marathi Movie titled “Premsutra” to be released this Friday where he feels that in today’s age “Love is Never Blind”.
Tell me why love makes people tick?
For every person their love is unique and the experience one gets in their love is also unique. Love means commitment or marriage for some. It could mean possessiveness or jealousy for the other. Love could also mean insecurity or showing dominance over the other. No matter what form it takes but its all part of love. In a relationship when an individual gets that feeling of a fish with no water I would say that it’s this feeling in love that makes people tick admits Tejas.
Has the definition of love changed of what it meant for the older generation and what it means for today’s youth?
Premsutra is everybody’s story. The older generation viewed love as their benchmark of commitment. But, in today’s age one’s career, goals, finance, achievements and aspirations takes much precedence.
Premsutra is a love story where the plot revolves around Anand played by Sandeep Kulkarni, a young Manager of a Corporate House posted at Goa for project work. It puts one in a situation where decision to follow your heart is over ruled by materialistic things in the world. Finally it’s the love that drives one towards their destination.
There are some individuals who just follow their heart. In the longer run, it is always your heart that takes you through. Premsutra tells one to follow your heart and believe in the beauty of one’s chosen dreams.
The major part of your movie was shot in Goa. Any message you would like to convey to your audience by showcasing love in Goa in this movie?
Goa, is a relatively smaller state situated on the western coast of India is famous for its beautiful beaches churches and very popular for tourism. In spite of it being so close on our western coast we haven’t seen many Marathi movies being shot in Goa. As the theme of the movie revolves around love we thought it would be ideal to have Goa as the preferred romantic destination.
The message we want to convey to the masses is Goa is not just about beaches and parties but also involves families who are conservative and very cultured. It’s fun to watch them and see how through the medium of songs and dance the whole families unite bringing about bonding within the family.
The movie has been shot in the coal mines in Goa and just as one goes deep into the coal mines in a similar manner the deeper one goes in love the clearer their love and message is. In fact love works wonders if one listen’s to their inner voice.
The crew in the movie “Premsutra” also includes other well known artistes
Yes. The film “ Premsutra also has other well known artistes like Shruti Marathe, Pallavi Subhash, Lokesh Gupte, Shishir Sharma, Ila Bhate, Shubha Khote, Prasad Pandit, Pradeep Athavale and others. Based on the concept designed by Sandeep Kulkarni, the script of the film has been expanded by Prasad Mirasdar and me with dialogue support coming from Mahendra Teredesai. Film’s music has been composed by Susmit Limaye with editing work done by Apoorva Motiwale and Asish Mhatre. It’s Fincraft Media and Entertainment and Kshitij Entertainment in association with Kathakkar.
Here’s wishing Tejas Deoskar and the whole team great success for his movie “Premsutra” slated for release on 21st June 2013. To get the feel of how love works wonders go and watch the movie “Premsutra” (Love Is Never Blind) at your nearest theatre.
