48 fps throughout. funny incident was that we had to play the song also
in 48 to get the lipsync while shooting....the general public who were watching the
shooting went berserk....listening to the so called song that was getting played in nagra at 48!!
they thought we were crazy!
cheers!

Oh South-Asian music...

I liked the overcrank effects with the water. The jumpcuts between the different actors was interesting also.

- What lens did you shoot the crane stuff with? It looked somewhat distorted on the edges.
- What was the budget for this video? How big was your crew?

In my biased American opinion, a good amount of North Indian pop music is very cheesy. I do listen to a good amount of bhangra/punjab dance hip hop etc. This video seems to fit with the Bollywood aesthetic but I feel like with the crane you could have done more synchronized movements.

Are you the director and DP?

i had used a set of pretty old KOWA lens (anamorphic).....so ofcourse...it comes a package deal of distorted edges and soft FX feel without any need to add soft efx filters!!!!
crew.....30
DP....did dual role as director....becos my dir had to fly to the capital to recieve an award for his earlier film....in a different genre...non commercial...

This is actually a perfectly conforming music video into bollywood. it only seems silly by american standards.


I liked the imagery and the camera moves but i felt that for the first minute of the movie all of the shots were so wide that I couldn't even see if the actors were actually singing. The rest was pretty good.

P.S

is this a sand alone music video or is it going to find a place in an indian movie
