Prime Focus adds masala to David Dhawan’s ‘Main Tera Hero’

Brings alive the playful look and locations of the action rom-com movie through DI & VFX

Mumbai, April 4 2014 – David Dhawan’s ‘Main Tera Hero’ is the latest feature film to be delivered by Prime Focus, a global leader in media and entertainment industry services. Starring Varun Dhawan, Ileana D’Cruz and Nargis Fakhri in lead roles, the action rom-com releases today. Prime Focus has worked on approximately 300+ VFX shots in a span of 45 days, along with Digital Intermediate (DI), and supplying a huge range of equipment.

Merzin Tavaria, Co-founder and Chief Creative Director, Prime Focus said “Our collaboration with director David Dhawan goes back a long time, and working on his latest project ‘Main Tera Hero’ was an absolute delight.” On the work executed for the film, he adds, “Most of the scenes in the film were action based, but it was a different experience since we had to blend this action with the comical approach. Our involvement from the pre till the production stage helped ensure that we deliver the best effect. The intention was to use post production techniques to bring out the beauty of the shots so that they look real and don’t disturb the narrative.”

Of all the various VFX sequences in ‘Main Tera Hero’, one of the most interesting and challenging was the moving train sequence involving Varun Dhawan fighting with goons. For this sequence, the entire scene was shot on a static rig and the movement outside the window was entirely shot against green screen. Later on, the moving footage of the background was composited, tracked and roto’d. The team was involved in planning from the pre–production stage, and by utilizing Prime Focus’ internal pipeline from the beginning.

Another challenging sequence was creating a Bangkok backdrop for most portions of the film. Director David Dhawan and DoP Sanjay F Gupta shot the sequences against green screen as if it were the actual location in terms of lighting and camera movement; it required the VFX to seamlessly blend with the approach. The challenge was to recreate a backdrop of Bangkok that worked well for each shot. In the end, the team had to match-move the live camera to achieve a highly realistic background movement that took care of various technical aspects such as depth of field and parallax.

Paresh Acharya, Prime Focus’ VP DI and VFX (India) concludes, “All our efforts were focused on crafting visuals which complement the storyline of the movie, whilst simultaneously enriching the comic sense. The final output looks good and we are glad to have delivered as per the director’s vision. Fortunately, due to our facilities infrastructure and talented team we were able to deliver high-quality work within the tight deadlines. ”

The film was flawlessly accomplished, under the guidance of VFX supervisor, Vivek Gaur and Sr. Colourist, Ashirwad Hadkar at Prime Focus who set the look of the movie maintaining an extremely glamorous yet colorful look.

At this point, filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi appreciated the hard work that the team put in and said, “I am looking forward to watching the film as the trailer looks promising. Infact, Divyansh and team has shown that a good film is not bound by budgets. A good concept can be made irrespective of the budget.” Famous film producer Vashu Bhagnani said “The budget in which this film has been made, is usually spent in a few meetings before making a film(laughs), so kudos to the entire team and specially Divyansh for pulling this off and the trailer was really gripping”. Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt also appreciated the initiative taken to make a film of this genre adding that the trailer was commendable and would love to see the entire film.

New Delhi, India, April 3, 2014 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a leading global vendor of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, value-added services and solutions, today announced it has concluded the acquisition of the Automotive Telematics On-board unit Platform (ATOP) business from Netherlands-based NXP Semiconductors (Nasdaq NXPI). ATOP is an automotive grade solution for vehicle manufacturers to implement eCallor similar functionality from a single compact and cost efficient package, delivering reduction in complexity and minimized costs in vehicle designs, customer data as well as regulatory compliance. The company at the same time launched Telit Automotive Solutions, a new business unit which is to focus exclusively on the Automotive OEM and Tier-one markets. The new organization will be headed up by industry veteran and long-time Telit executive, Dominikus Hierl as its CEO.

With the acquisition concluded, the company will integrate the ATOP business including sales, engineering and support staff into Telit Automotive Solutions, expanding its market reach with solutions leveraging the expanded engineering and sales expertise particularly in software-centric RFIs from Automotive and Telematics OEMs. The company achieved automotive-critical global ISO/TS16949 certification in July 2012 and maintains one of the industry’s largest product portfolios for the automotive sector with particular emphasis on advanced technologies such as LTE and HSPA+. Telit has appointed Lars Reger, Head of Chip Development and General Manager for New Business in NXP’s automotive business division as a non-executive director of Telit on closing.

Industry analysts position automotive as the strongest growing segment for M2M over the next few years. According to ABI Research’s report on the global m2m module market published in May 2013, module shipments to automotive OEMs will grow from 6 million units in 2013 to 30 million in 2018. Regulatory initiatives like eCall in Europe, ERA GLONASS in Russia, DENATRAN 245 in Brazil lend further credibility to the strength of the sector along with the much publicized “connected car” trend which is likely to lead to 100% penetration of the technology in the very near future.

“This acquisition will take the ATOP technology to the next level, by embedding it in a sustainable ecosystem for innovative and high-quality automotive solutions. We’re confident that our expertise will continue to grow under Telit’s leadership in combination with continued cooperation from NXP”, said Lars Reger. “NXP will stay highly involved in the future of ATOP by becoming a shareholder in Telit and joining the company’s board.”

“The acquisition of ATOP is the catalyst for building a dedicated Automotive business unit to better address Automotive opportunities and execute our strategy to become the market leader in this segment,“ said Telit CEO Oozi Cats. “The ATOP team is talented and enthusiastic to join Telit. Their expertise will be leveraged by positioning their top managers in significant roles within the new Telit Automotive organization.”

“Together with a significant customer base, ATOP brings additional expertise in automotive platforms to compliment our already thriving automotive business“, said Dominikus Hierl, CEO of the new Telit Automotive Solutions. “The multi-service capable platform provides support for a range of features from its single package, including vehicle location & tracking, remote starting and diagnostics as well as business applications like fleet management.“

Revolutionary product ‘OMASK’ is another contribution by Canadian entrepreneur and celebrity singer Nofel Izz

OMASK is a light weight portable safety breathing apparatus which allows the passengers of a vehicle to escape when submerged in water by providing oxygen rich air in a mask that is waterproof /airtight and could also be a life saving apparatus in possible situations such as bridge collapse, deadly smoke inhalation, fire in houses and high rises as well as public transportation.

When asked Mr. Izz about why he decided to work on this invention he said; “Accidents have become a part of our daily lives and so have natural disasters. Typically in a submerged vehicle crash, water rises to the bottom of the passenger window within 30 seconds. A person would have to wait until their vehicle is fully submerged before escaping. Due to external pressures, one would have little or no time to save themselves or their loved ones. With OMASK this situation will be avoidable and before you receive emergency help, you would be safe and free from drowning.”

Currently the indigenous innovation is in its manufacturing stage. Samples are being sorted out for leading car manufacturers, and vehicle safety suppliers, who understand that OMASK – is just as important and pertinent to have as an AIR BAG.

“ I have always believed that every idea, which can help the society in a better way should be developed and communicated. The company who understands the same values, will be chosen to distribute OMASK.CA exclusively” – Nofel Izz.

Apart from entertaining half million fans on Face Book and working on his next Sufi album, Nofel Izz has embarked on creating awareness in Dubai for such a product in the market place while looking for a suitable investor.

Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan impresses Amitabh Bachchan!

Mumbai, 3rd April 2014: The action packed trailer for superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming performance capture photorealistic film Kochadaiiyaan was recently unveiled by the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan. After the trailer was revealed, Big B spoke at length about its excellence, his association with his close friend and superstar Rajinikanth, and the brilliant debutante director Soundarya.

The video can be viewed at http://bit.ly/AmitabhBachchanPraisesRajinikanth.

Talking about his close friend Rajinikanth, Bachchan Sr. reminisced, “He was saying, ‘You know Amitji, I am getting bored, I don’t know what to do now’ and I said, Please do not stop working. Just continue doing what you are doing, irrespective of the fact that it is boring to you, and look what he produces now!!”

Amitabh spoke about Rajinikanth’s crazy fan following down South, stating how it is impossible to get tickets for his movies for the first few weeks, because his fan clubs buy them all. Once you finally get tickets, you have to go once again, because you can’t hear anything over all the applause, cheering and the frenzy.

While praising Kochadaiiyaan, the legendary actor also said , “I hope that the theatres are filled for Kochadaiiyan for years and years to come and I hope that people like me who want to go to the theatre to see it have to wait for several years before we can go and see it”.

He concluded his speech with these words, “May I just say on the 100th year of Indian cinema, that when the history of Indian cinema will be written, it’ll be before Kochadaiiyaan and after Kochadaiiyaan”

The event saw the presence of many renowned personalities like Aishwarya Rai, Jaya Bachchan, Kajol, Shekhar Kapur, Subhash Ghai, R. Balki, Anupam Kher and Ramesh Sippy, among others, who appreciated the work of the debutante director. The film stars Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone.  Produced by Media One Entertainment & Eros International, Kochadaiiyaan will hit theatres soon.

DARA KOYLA TAKES OVER THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT

‘Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh’ on SAB TV is a comic ghost hunting series based on two brothers and their comical encounters with supernatural beings.

Recently, the entire team of Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh was scheduled to shoot a sequence at a set which was made to look like a graveyard wherein both the main characters will encounter a witch. The creative team of the series dedicatedly arranged the sets which gave it a complete & realistic touch to the entire section.

Initially the shoot happened smoothly as everyone was engrossed in their characters but as time progressed and it got dark, people were genuinely finding it uneasy owing to the authenticity of the set and the premise of the story of witches and ghosts. Dara Koyla played by Rajesh Kumar sensed this discomfort among the crew members and hatched a plan to change the mood on the sets. He joined forces with Swati Verma who plays the witch in this particular track to make all the people laugh on the sets to lighten the mood.

Rajesh Kumar said, “Even though we are working in a comic series, the base plot revolves around supernatural activity. I observed that as the shooting stretched on to late hours most of the cast members and assistants on the set were visibly disturbed and serious. I spoke with Swati & together we started cracking jokes between shots and making everyone laugh so as to spread cheer among them and elevate the entire mood on the sets. The trick worked and we successfully wrapped up the shoot.”

Watch how Pritam & Pyaare battle ghosts and make people laugh with their efforts.

Tune into Pritam Pyaare Aur Woh to catch all the ghost-busting laughter, from Monday to Friday at 7.30 pm only on SAB TV!

These memorable compositions are by the brilliant musicians Ismail Darbar and Salim-Sulaiman.

Rajinikanth’s Wife Latha Sings In ‘Kochadaiiyaan’

Apart from South superstar Rajinikanth, who has sung in upcoming magnum opus ‘Kochadaiiyaan’, Latha, the wife of the ‘Thalaiva’ has also crooned a number in the film.

The song is titled ‘Manappenin Sathiyam’ and talking about the song, director Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin said, “My mother is a very talented singer, and this song has come out great. Without any practise, she’s done an amazing job. Singing is her passion and I hope she does it more often. The lyrics are very emotional and I can’t wait for people to hear it. It was a challenge for her, for sure, as she has sung this song in Telugu too.”

What many might not know is that Latha has worked as a playback singer in the 80s and sources close to the family claim that Rajinikanth, who has also sung a song in the film, absolutely loved the song sung by his wife.

Hailed as India’s answer to James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’, ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ is the first Indian film to use full performance capture in its production process, a workflow that was pioneered and optimised on James Cameron’s Avatar. The film is also the first film of its kind to be produced in its allocated budget and completed within the timescales set.

After garnering over 3.5 million views for its teaser trailer in a matter of only a few days, Kochadaiiyaan is set to blaze a trail globally in cutting-edge Photorealistic Performance Capture Technology, as it rivals and transcends the technological capabilities of Hollywood masterpieces Avatar, Tin Tin and Beowulf.

South Indian megastar Rajinikanth is cast as the archetypal superhero in the epic dramatisation of good versus evil. He performs a dual role with the reigning Queen of Indian Cinema Deepika being paired opposite the younger character. They are joined by current and veteran stars of North and South Indian Cinema such as Jackie Shroff and R. Sarathkumar for a global, Pan-Indian cinematic treat. The film is directed by Soundarya Rajnikanth Ashwin with music by A R Rahman.

Tiger Shroff, who will perhaps be seen doing a lot of action sequences in his debut film, has apparently been training hard to be an action hero.

Sources close to the actor tell us that the soon-to-debut actor has been focusing a lot on his action moves. “Ever since Tiger decided to become an actor, he was sure that he wanted to be an action hero. He began working out and took lessons on ways to perform action sequences. He is also a trained gymnast, which made it easier for him,” says a source close to the actor.

We are told that all the advance physical training came in handy when Tiger began work on the film. “For almost two years before he began shooting for his debut film, Tiger had started to work on his body, and on sharpening his skills to perform action scenes,” the source adds.

Divulging details about the film, the source adds, “He will be seen performing a lot of stunts in the film. A particular fight sequence in it will be one of the highlights of the trailer as well.”
