cheap moncler jackets I loved the neo noir look moncler outlet uk of the film. cheap moncler jackets

Yes it is homage to film noir. Critics have referred to it as neo noir. I think neo noir pushes the characteristics of the noir genre, where the bad guy is shown from the beginning. I have made him into a shadow, which is a noir characteristic, but the shadow will always be of the bad guy.

A lot of what you show in the film the shadow and the actions, it’s never clear if it is really happening or if it is in the guy’s head.

moncler sale outlet Absolutely. For me the story is of a couple who have had a loss. It’s probably been seven or eight years. The man has been fighting his moncler sale outlet own battles of masculinity, his being a man, a policeman and moncler outlet jackets a father, and yet he could not protect his child and he cannot find her. moncler sale outlet

The wife in her own way has locked herself in her imaginary world, imagining things. So they live this fragmented life. But when he comes home he is a caring, loving partner makes tea for her, bathes her.

The police station is real, but the moment he leaves that setting it perhaps becomes imaginary. This happens in classic settings where there is a cheap moncler hero and his daughter has been taken away to the villain’s castle. And he goes there to save his daughter or the princess.

cheap moncler So it is a classic structure but I play with it whether it is real or not. cheap moncler

There is actually the villain’s castle in the film the brothel where you have the young moncler jacket sale girls locked up.

That is real. This is something I researched that it is horrible that these kids live in Mumbai brothels, but they don’t leave. They have seen one girl trying to leave and she gets beaten up and then out of fear they don’t leave.

cheap moncler sale I was asked this question by a journalist and I reminded them of an incident about the three girls somewhere in the US who were kidnapped and then they lived openly with the kidnappers, until one of them decided to leave. After 17 years only one of them decided to leave. cheap moncler sale

moncler outlet It is always the fear instilled in the young children by the adults and they do not leave. moncler outlet

I liked the look of the film because of the choices you made. You spoke after the screening that the monsoon Moncler Outlet just started when you began shooting, because the shoot got delayed. And you shot the film mostly at night, except for in moncler jackets outlet the beginning and end.

moncler sale I understand noir works in the darkness. But what kind of planning you did for the look of the film? moncler sale

cheap moncler coats There were accidents upon accidents, but as a director you have to exploit those chance happenings. cheap moncler coats

My DoP (Director of Photography) Jean Marc Ferriere is French, but he lives in Rio and his visa got delayed by two weeks.

When he arrived, the rains had already started. So I said let us just use the rain. We decided to shoot mostly at night, because everyone sleeps during the day in any case.

moncler outlet store But would you shoot through the night? moncler outlet store

Actually we could shoot only very little every night. We would have to stop by 4 am. Because in Mumbai there are crows and they start cawing at four in the morning.

buy moncler jackets We’d do some of the scenes where we did not need the sound like car shots around that time. But we couldn’t do any scenes with the sound at that hour. buy moncler jackets

It was very tight and we had to shoot very fast.

cheap moncler outlet That’s how we worked very fast with Adil. He was fantastic. I didn’t have to say anything to him because we had rehearsed for about 15 days before. We would look at each other and communicate with our eyes. cheap cheap moncler jackets moncler outlet

And he is a very intelligent actor.

Yes he is. Tannishtha, I had worked with before in Hawa Aane Dey and she recommended Adil to me. I had told her that her role was going to be small, but she was okay with that.
