Creating magic on screen


After an entire semester of ceaseless hard work and toil, the final-year CEOEP students of Jyoti Nivas College screened the movies they had made on the college premises recently.

The event titled ‘Take One’ turned out to be a success with director KM Chaitanya gracing the occasion with his presence.  The four student films that were shown — ‘Pitri Chaya’, ‘Vihaan’, ‘Oru Pattambuchiyin Kathae’ and ‘Inamorata’ — left the crowd impressed at the fact that the students themselves managed to create such magic on screen in just two days of shooting.

‘Oru Pattambuchiyin Kathae: The Story of a Butterfly’ revolved around a little girl’s aspirations and highlighted the role that dreams play in helping one realise his or her goals and passions.

‘Vihaan: A New Beginning’ depicted the societal norms and beliefs that restrict women from living their lives the way they want to and a daughter’s promise to support her mother’s choices. “Film-making isn’t as easy as we thought it would be. However, the result that came after the endless fights and sleepless nights made it all worth it. On the whole, it was an enriching experience in terms of the time we invested and the knowledge that we acquired,” said Poulami, a final-year student who helped make ‘Vihaan’. 

‘Inamorata: A Candle in the Wind’, another film with a strong message, spoke about a woman’s woes in a society that worships the same gender. “A woman is a creation to be loved and respected. But is she really given the respect she deserves in today’s world? Our movie answers this question and at the same time, brings out the various hindrances that women have to overcome and the challenges they have to face,” said Jewel, who was a part of the making of the film.

The last film ‘Pitri Chaya: A Father’s Shadow’ focussed on the father-daughter relationship and depicted the effect that fame and money has on one’s family life. “Usually, when we talk about parenting, only the role of a mother is brought to light. But this movie gives a whole new perspective to the idea of parenting,” shared Kavya, a second-year student who attended the event.

The event came to a close with KM Chaitanya delivering a note of appreciation to the final-year students and offering feedback on each of the films. He noted that in ‘Oru Pattambuchiyin Kathae’, the technique of using silence instead of sound effects was impressive.
