‘Vasham’ (English Title ‘The Book’) – A crowd funded film .. Simplifying Production!!

The Beginning:

The dream started when I was in engineering, when everyone are running after GPA’s and Jobs.. there I was reading about Satyajit ray, watching world cinema and is in the process of discovering a new world!

Back in IBM I was restless, and soon I resigned my job and made a desi docudrama film ‘Song of Life’ in Hinglish, by going back to my college (ISM(IIT)) Dhanbad and staying there for an year! 

 

The lessons:

I Believe no one can teach us a style, everyone will have heir own. But I wanted to learn the basics, so I entered Tollywood and did all kinds of jobs to understand the production process. I worked for Minugurulu in pre-production, a film about blind kids and then I worked as a production designer for Case no.666 and finally as a co-writer for Chandamama Kathalu, which went on to win a National award !

‘Vasham’ story:

I felt this is the right time for me to make my own feature film.

Basically I love drama, but I wanted to come out of it and try something new as everyone was suggesting me, I am limiting myself to few ideas. So I took up the base Idea from Rohit Mishra (Alumnus, NIT Jaipur) who worked on this for a couple of years. Then I did my own research for another year and locked this script for 99 pages and 143 scenes.

” Imagine the world before the invention of aeroplanes, If I speak of people flying from one place to another then, most would say it is magic, but the truth is, it is pure science. This is what we deal in our Vasham, advanced science ( few might say Magic ). This is basically a psychological thriller”.. This is what our film is all about.

Crowdfunding to ‘Vasham’:

Crowdfunding in Hindi films is well known, Pawan started this is Kannada Films with Lucia!

Now We (Vasham Team) had to do something different here as we will be first to start this in telugu , as our biggest asset is the script, We uploaded the first half of the script in our website https://www.thebookmoviezone.com for investors to read and then invest if they are convinced about the content.

A brief synopsis is available at https://thebookmoviezone.com/aboutus.html

Please note that we didn’t approach any other crowdfunding platform, we developed our own website!

So guys please read the script and get back if interested in investing in this endeavour!! Check sponsor page https://thebookmoviezone.com/sponsor.html to get involved!!

We,The Vasham Team is very happy happy that many of the stars in Tollywood ( Manoj Manchu, Lakshmi Manchu, Sundeep Kishan , Madhura sreedhar, vennela kishore, neelima Tirumalasetty,Varun sandesh, Allu Sirish ) retweeted our website www.thebookmoviezone.comand extended their support.

Allu Sirish personally met me and congratulated me for coming up with a new premise in Tollywood.

We already launched the logo online in all its social networking pages .

The logo of the film exactly portrays the same, A thriller look with undercurrent portrayal of science and spirituality background.

If you observe closely the background is a combination of chemical compounds , musical notes and maths equations in a book, used by a professor to control people.

Will keep updating this post regularly as well!!

  2. Excellent Asha, will check with the above links .. Thank you

  3. Sorry to say, but your post is utterly confusing.

    I hope the same doesn’t happen to your film?

    Let me explain:

    The Beginning:

    The dream started when I was in engineering, when everyone are running after GPA’s and Jobs.. there I was reading about Satyajit ray, watching world cinema and is in the process of discovering a new world!

    Back in IBM I was restless, and soon I resigned my job and made a desi docudrama film ‘Song of Life’ in Hinglish, by going back to my college (ISM(IIT)) Dhanbad and staying there for an year! 

    Aloks version:

    Even when I was in Engineering School and later at IBM I always wanted to be a film maker.

    The lessons:

    I Believe no one can teach us a style, everyone will have heir own. But I wanted to learn the basics, so I entered Tollywood and did all kinds of jobs to understand the production process. I worked forMinugurulu in pre-production, a film about blind kids and then I worked as a production designer forCase no.666 and finally as a co-writer for Chandamama Kathalu, which went on to win a National award !

    Alok : WHY IS THIS PARA NECESSARY?

    Basically I love drama, but I wanted to come out of it and try something new as everyone was suggesting me, I am limiting myself to few ideas. So I took up the base Idea from Rohit Mishra (Alumnus, NIT Jaipur) who worked on this for a couple of years. Then I did my own research for another year and locked this script for 99 pages and 143 scenes.

    Alok : My friend and I had an idea!

    Crowdfunding in Hindi films is well known, Pawan started this is Kannada Films with Lucia!

    Now We (Vasham Team) had to do something different here as we will be first to start this in telugu , as our biggest asset is the script, We uploaded the first half of the script in our websitehttps://www.thebookmoviezone.com for investors to read and then invest if they are convinced about the content.

    Alok : WHO IS PAWAN?

    ***

    I gave up reading after this…

  4. Thanks Alok.. for taking out your time and writing this.. Indeed I learnt something in what your wrote. I agree with 1st point.. and yeah I should have added some info about Pawan.. 

    But the point where you said, Is this para neccesary matters a lot, That shows my experience . When someone wants to invest, the first question they ask is what is your experience..

    Anyways, I will rewrite and post few more updates soon!! Thank you
