A Sooper se Ooper launch
of Jigsaw Pictures into feature films
Having produced over 150 television commercials, music videos and even a critically acclaimed short film, The Fall (starring Rahul Bose), production house Jigsaw Pictures now looks forward to releasing their first commercial feature film Sooper Se Ooper. This quirky drama with Vir Das in lead has been co produced with Reliance Entertainment & is scheduled to come to theatres across India on 25 October, 2013.
CEO & Creative Producer of Jigsaw Pictures, Rajnish Lall has had over 9 years of experience in advertising, having worked in Clarion, Contract & Bates and thereafter headed the marketing division at B4U shortly after. He then founded Jigsaw Pictures about 8 years ago & will debut as a Creative Producer and the Line Producer of Sooper se Ooper. He is among a few who is comfortably straddling the productions both in the TV commercials & feature films.
On his first production, Rajnish Lall – Creative Producer, Jigsaw Pictures said, “Working on this film was like taking a fresh guard in the field of production… it has been an amazing, exciting & rich experience in the last 2 years. From fine tuning the script, putting together the right cast & technical team of my choice, the extensive shoot in Rajasthan & Mumbai to production of lovely songs all within a modest budget has been a Sooper se Ooper experience! In this journey we had the support & guidance of a big studio like Reliance Entertainment.”
The movie Sooper se Ooper is based on an Indian superstition ‘ that making a will (legal document) is an indication that that your time has come near’. The story revolves around the character of Vir Das, whose fortune has dwindled and selling his ancestral property may just be the way out of the situation but he runs into a problem as the ancestral land was not will-ed to him by his parents. Filmed in brilliant Rajasthan and gritty Mumbai, the story takes an interesting and entertaining turn during the journey from village to city and vice-versa.
The film stars Vir Das, Gulshan Grover, Deepak Dobriyal, Kirti Kulhari & Yashpal Sharma, among others. The music has been composed by Sonu Niigam & Bickram Ghosh who debut as a music duo in Hindi films & has quirky fusion BGM from Ranjit Barot. The director, a veteran of TV commercials also makes his debut with this film. The film is being presented by Reliance Entertainment & produced by Jigsaw Pictures.
Jigsaw Pictures’ next feature production is a comic thriller set in Mumbai & Kerala, which they will start shooting in April 2014.
