Narad entrance should be massive in the universe of DK FILMS | Dushyant Kapoor

I travelled to Kurukshetra in order to write a script for my Indian superhero league. Following Mahakaal, Boom, Suitboy, this film must be released in order for my universe to be finished on YouTube. (Dushyant Kapoor in kurukshetra) The facts of the Mahabharat war cannot be denied; it is something from which we should all learn. If I'm going to play Narad as a villain, he needs to be huge and intimidating. It must also reflect the character's goodness. This type of character requires conversation and a script, which is why I'm in Mahabharat's kingdom. It will be almost two years since I released Suitboy. The comments on it are still remembered because they were so amazing and people wanted to know what happened next. A lot of things happened, such as the pandemic, which prevented me from doing the Indian superhero team up. I was going through a lot because Bollywood is constantly unveiling superhero films in lockdown. I assumed my time would never come, owing to my belief that superhero films are my genre. I'd like to tell folks about my experience. I've received a lot of messages, about 1000-1250 each month on average, asking when I'll make a film like the Indian Avengers on YouTube. It sparked a lot of thought in me. I was constantly learning how to make great movies. Now that God has given me power, I'm ready to take on the world. I think I should begin. (Dushyant Kapoor, Tushar Sirohi, Charchit Kaushik & Neelkanth Pathak in kurukshetra) Apart from that, I know how much people enjoy the Narad character, so it will be a lot of fun to play him again after such a long time, as well as spreading eternal knowledge of the Sanatan dharma and cosmic truths through him.

I am Dog is a short film that everyone should see | Dushyant Kapoor

I've always wanted to make films that could affect people's lives. I was in such a good mood after listening to "I Am Dog" that I couldn't help but make this film. In recent years, India has consistently provided us with high-quality content via OTT platforms and YouTube. Short films are a great way to get your foot in the door as a director or even to start your own YouTube channel. Let it be Imtiaz Ali's "Bruno and Juliet," Farhan Akhtar's "Positive," or Anurag Kashyap's "The Day After Everything." Short films take less time and money to make, but because people's attention spans are shorter these days, they are watched more. Short films have a lot to say, but they all end up sending us a powerful message. On March 30, 2020, a week after the nationwide lockdown, Dushyant Kapoor released his short film "All Men are Dogs." The film asks the following questions: Are all men dogs? Is it fair to use that term to describe all men? “All Men are Dogs” is written entirely from the perspective of a man who has witnessed all of the patriarchy's injustices against women. Even if one person tries to do the right thing, he is still held accountable for all the wrongdoings of other men. (Dushyant Kapoor with DOP Ananad Badoniya on the set of "I am Dog" also released as "All men are dogs?") The story has been told in a seamless manner by Bob Barnes' voice-over. Even though the film has no dialogue, the voice-over is beautifully crafted with Lovepreet Singh's Background music. The comments section proves how well this short film has been received, with around 300,000 views. This film is yet another gem from DK Films' resume. Dushyant Kapoor once again demonstrates that he can produce and direct films that aren't about superheroes but still manage to touch people's hearts. This lovely film is in honor of his writer's father. On being asked why Gaurav Dhankhar wrote this film? If I had just thought of myself as a writer, I honestly believe I would not have been able to write I am a dog. It's always been more of a statement for me than a creative narrative of one man's life. I once overheard a random stranger girl say in a restaurant, "All men are dogs," and I'm not sure why that statement stuck with me. In the coming months, I've noticed that "All men are dogs" has become a common phrase in our daily lives, easily accepted by our society, but we've never stopped to consider how it affects not only us but a future generation. The second thought that came to mind was that if I were ever to be compared to a dog, I would be proud of it rather than ashamed of it, and in order to do so, I would have to distinguish myself from people who are not deserving of the title. Because a dog is always by your side, a dog is someone who will always look out for you and be there for you. There are many qualities that dogs possess that humans do not. So once again, I am Dog.

Exclusice | Meet Raksha Sutra Writer Prashant Raj and Raise a toast

Prashant Raj is an Indian film screenwriter and actor. His films are characterized by nonlinear storylines, dark humor, accord violence, ensemble casts, extended dialogue, ensemble casts, references to Indian popular culture, alternate history, and neo-noir. Question: What made you write "Rakshasutra"? how did this idea come to your mind? Well, I have been associated with DK Films for a one-half year now. We were discussing and doing a lot of sci-fi and superhero stuff but you will find the core inspiration behind every work of DK Films is the glorious history of India which we mistakenly refer to as mythology. So on the occasion of Rakshabandhan, we were planning for a sci-fi Idea what DK Films fan love to see along with this idea of the origin of Raksha Bandhan, where did it all get started from? like this so we all had such kind of ideas but then one of the members of the team, our editor advised us to make something that not only fantasizes the youth but also educate them about the history and the truth behind what we see today as the culture of our nation as youth is our core audience and future of this nation. Rakshasutra was the finest idea to go on the floor, as It has history, mythology, supernatural incidents, and everything that a true epic needs to be made. Question: You have written a blend of two stories, one is from the era of medieval India and the other one is from the mythological era of Krishna? How do these two stories connect and what made you convinced about putting these two stories altogether? Yes, these stories show two significant moments from the history of this nation. One is from Dwapara Yuga, the time of Krishna, the incident of killing of Shishupal took place just a few years before the epic Mahabharata and the other one is from the early history of Mughals when India was on the verge of losing many Rajputana Kingdoms under Islamic invasion in India. So both the stories show the crucial time before the battle. In both stories, a woman is asking for help from a powerful being of that time and the idea behind these stories was to show how strong the traditions of this nation are that they are being followed for thousands of years and Rani Karnawati quotes the incident of Draupadi and Krishna when she writes a letter to Humayun to help her and to save her kingdom from Gujrat Sultan Bahadurshah. Both the stories leave an impact and prove the fact that there is a strong reason & history behind every tradition people of this country follow even today and most of the traditions are followed in the form of festivals like Rakshabandhan. (Prashant raj on the set of "Raksha Sutra" in Bulandshahar) Question:You said "Islamic Invasion". What do you mean by that? As if there was one Muslim emperor who attacked Mewar or other Hindu kingdoms there was another Muslim emperor who helped Hindu Kingdoms not tried to do so. Don't you think it's a very shrunk idea of history to label the battle of kingdoms as the battle of Religions? "Well it's a long debate but every other Kingdom outside this nation be it Sultanate, Mughals or Britishers came to rule this land either on the point of power, sword, religion, or policies and in many ways they destroyed many religious traditions, culture & monuments that belonged to Hinduism. As we see there is a huge difference we see between North Indian traditions and South Indian traditions because south India was never ruled by any of the Muslim Kingdoms that ruled North India at that time and this is why the core Hindu traditions of these nations are still alive for thousands of years in that region of India which we don't see in the northern part of India. So it's a long subject of research how those Invasions caused India to lose its cultural identity. Considering all the political aspects of that time yes we can say that many Muslim Kingdoms became allies with Hindu Kingdoms or helped each other but from the early phase of arrivals of Muslim to the last phase of Aurangzeb, we see a downfall in political intentions towards this country but a rise in radicalized religious policies. Britishers had not so many religion-oriented policies but they manipulated the history and facts between two major religions of this country, as a result of which India saw many disasters along with its partition." (Prashant raj on the set of "Raksha Sutra" along with Charchit Kaushik, Ankit Vatsa, Tushar Sirohi, Uditya Nain, Deepshikha & Dushyant Kapoor in Bulandshahar) Question: Coming back to Rakshasutra again, the story, characters, scenes, and visuals look so fresh and creative. How did you imagine it in that way.? "DK Films is known for its visuals and a very talented and young technical team, so I just wrote a simple story. They created the Mewar Fort, the Shishupal-Krishna fight, and designed all of the visuals in a way that was strikingly different from previous adaptations of the same stories. As a result, the cast, editing, sound, and VFX teams deserve all of the credit." Question: Today everyone is looking for content that can achieve views in millions be it anything content mostly cringe content. We see many influencers & creators who claim to be the face of youth. Where do you see in that race of influencers & creators? "First and foremost, neither I nor the team to which I belong are participating in any sort of competition. Making content for the youth should never be viewed as a race; it is a work of art and creativity, not a race to get ahead of or behind others. We've also created content that has received millions of views, as well as content that has received none. We aren't even competing with ourselves. DK Film has focused on producing high-quality content from the beginning, regardless of how many views it receives, and the content has subsequently attracted such a large number of views. DK Films creates cinema that has a profound impact on youth, making them more aware and ambitious about the art of cinema. It's not about youtube or becoming famous in one night. For example, we had many crispy & catchy ideas for a video on Rakshbandhan which could fetch millions of views without putting so much effort on the ground, those ideas just needed studio work to create them but we went on the floor, took the risk, arranged and did everything in the period of lockdown just to prove our commitment & will to create a wonderful cinema and when the same youth who go for cringe or crispy content applauded our work then we were so happy & satisfied to see the response. Youth is our priority and to serve them with quality content is our motto. Youth has a fresh mind, it can be molded the way creators want it to be with their content so it's a responsibility for us to create something which makes a difference and spreads awareness." Question: DK Films is known for its superhero universe, but it has recently expanded into other genres such as social, history, fiction, and science fiction with films such as Corona 2049, poetry for social awareness, Hacking Tiktok, End of the World, and Rakshasutra.What is the concept behind moving away from superheroes and toward multi-directional aspects of stories? Is this the work of DK Films or a writer's vision? What is the concept behind moving away from superheroes and toward multi-directional aspects of stories? Is this the work of DK Films or a writer's vision? " Well, nobody is shifting from anywhere to anywhere else. DK Films' superhero universe is there and will always be there as it's a dream of every Indian to have India's superhero universe and DK Films is committed to make that dream a reality. The other things & genres you talked about are not a new thing, those things were always there in the mind and eventually, this covid phase came and the production got the right time and cause to deliver that. Things just came into mind, got shared, and were written down. I had no idea about all things or I had never written these all things, I just wrote whatever we as a team & specially Dushyant decided to make. Sometimes I could not get or match the exact ideas that they had in mind so I just ended up writing some parts of a script as the whole script was already there. So again it's necessary to see that DK Films is not just about making superheroes, it's more about bringing a social & creative sense among the youth by their ideas and the craft of creating a wonderful cinema." Question: As a writer what is your inspiration to write, where do you look up to or what motivates you to write, how did it all start? Are there any shows or cinema which has inspired you as your favorites? "This whole world is full of stories or you can say this whole world is a story & an imagination in itself. I have always been influenced by the idea of this world is a story & imagination in itself. The only thing I did in my teens was to see just films on DVDs be it Bollywood, Hollywood, and later films from other countries. I used to just watch them and imagine writing some wonderful stories myself but I never started to write. I had a large collection of DVDs and films on my laptop and a habit of watching films with subtitles for long hours till I could understand every dialogue of an English film or even a Hindi film, this is why a two hours film would take 3 or 4 hours to finish. I was so drawn to the art of dialogues, the way it should be said and written because It makes the character & story what it is." "At that time I was pursuing an engineering degree with all these things, so I had just a dream of working in films but on the ground, I never wrote a story or screenplay. After 4 years of completion of my engineering, somehow I did my PGDM in journalism, looking for a job I got a chance to work with an independent director and a friend of mine in my hometown for a short and feature film where I wrote dialogues & worked as script supervisor, assistant director and played some roles. That short film has won 2-3 prestigious film festivals now. After that, it all got started. " "My inspirations from Hollywood & Bollywood are a long list but I found I like to write dark & deep which makes sense after a while, keeping it mysterious and not easy to understand but this is not the way how It works. Writing has a very vast scope, things are coming on a large scale from every genre, so for a writer, it's necessary to keep all the windows open and I am learning that. I don't think that I have even started to write like a professional writer yet. Mr. Anurag Kashyap, Mr. Vishal Bhardwaj, his Omkara, and from Hollywood Mr. Tarantino, Mr. Spielberg have inspired me a lot. If you talk about the shows and the films, it's a long list and is almost common what a general viewer likes to watch." (official poster of film Raksh Sutra) Question: What's there in the future we should expect to see from you & DK Films and is there any message for your viewers and youth? "We have worked on some other kinds of projects in recent times, they would be on the surface soon. Personally even I don't know what would be the next people would see from my side & DK Films. In recent times I have learned many things and still learning other things so I can write for big projects and after that, I might come up with ideas my team and myself believe in. It's all about belief & works more and more then eventually anyone can come up with their ideas. " "And for our viewers, I just want to say that I have seen how wonderful youth & viewers we have. They all are so supportive, creative, and nice. Many of them are creators themselves and motivate us to do more. Tons of thanks to them and we as a team promise them to serve them the best they wish to see from us."

How did I prepare for my first part as Panna Dai in Raksha Sutra? - Deepshikha Sirohi

It was an honor to be chosen to act in such a historical short film. Panna Dai was a warrior who made sacrifices that no one else could imagine. She was the epitome of a strong and faithful woman. She was not only Rani Karnavati's nursemaid but also a supporter and mother to her children. I was ecstatic to be portraying her. In the short film RakshaSutra, I had only a small part. But I felt thrilled when I read the dialogues. “Bilkul nahi, jab tak hum zinda hai, Rajkumar bundi Rajya nahi jayenge! I was feeling like a warrior, someone who could actually fight with a whole army. DK Films always come up with such amazing stories and Raksha Sutra was truly one of a kind. It took me three days to prepare for the character, I read everything about her personality, her life, everything. We tried many costumes to give it the perfect look of Panna Dai Ji. The makeup, the jewelry, we dug for the right piece of everything to make this character alive. I practiced the dialogue almost 1000 times, and it took around 5 shots to get it to the screen. Every character in the short film was amazing, their performance was extraordinary. As a debut, getting to work with good actors, and such an amazing role, who wouldn’t agree that I am lucky.

Let’s bring back our love for Indian superheroes: Dushyant Kapoor

Growing up, we all had moved in different directions, but what remained one thing common in all of us? The love for superheroes! We all grew up watching Superheroes, didn’t we? Be it the fabulous Marvel movies like Iron Man, Spiderman, Avengers, or the animated series, which were quite a thing for the 90s kids, or the comics which were also very popular. Since visuals are more interesting to watch, comics transformed into movies, but the love for superheroes is never going to end. Besides the International superheroes, we were huge fans of Indian Superheroes. Remember watching Shaktian, Doga, Nagraj, Junior G, and of course Captain Vyom. I remember how I was so addicted to these shows. There was a time when Shaktimaan and Shaka Laka Boom Boom were some of the most-watched serials on Indian television. Though we see Bollywood has tried to adapt superheroes in movies like Krrish, Ra-One, and Bhavesh Joshi, neither could create a massive impact on pop culture. Well, that’s not it! Just when we thought Indian Superheroes have outlasted in our childhood, here comes the good news. DK Films, a film production company in India, has finally brought our youth back by bringing Indian Superheroes to Screen. And the good ones! Dk Films has created our “very own” Indian Superheroes named Mahakaal, Suitboy, Naari, Hian, She, and many such unique characters. They started their journey by creating a fan-made trailer for Shaktimaan, which gained around 20 Million Views on YouTube. But sadly, we could not see the whole series due to various issues. After this, they introduced us to a couple of Indian superheroes, the first one being Mahakaal. The characters of DK Films are unlike any Indian Superheroes; their origin is coming from Indian History and Ancient God stories. Let me tell you about all the Indian Superheroes we got in here! Their first character after the Fan-Made Trailer of Shaktiman was Mahakaal. The character Mahakaal is the grandson of Lord Shiva and possesses powers like super strength, flight, superhuman speed, teleportation, and immortality. Another superhero, Suitboy, is a story of a boy who received a suit made of Invisible cells from Planet B, which possesses the power of invisibility and superhuman strength. It is one of the most popular superheroes in the DK film universe. Naari, a female Indian superhero, and historical character comes from the Kalyuga of Brahma’s 50th day and has the power of superhuman strength and immortality. She can heal, has superhuman speed, and can take anyone to a virtual dream world. We have seen her presence in the film “Shaka Laka Boom Boom and Magic Pencil Returns.” Another female superhero who is yet to debut is SHE. Being a victim once, she is now a vigilante who fights for everyone affected. Her superpowers are hand-to-hand combat, and she is a master in technology. She is also an expert in martial arts and handling weapons. The fifth superhero is Halt. Halt is a result of a science experiment and has the power to freeze time and can run fast. Hion was saved from death by a loved one with the medicines of Lord Yamputra. He possesses the powers of healing, super strength, superhuman reflexes, and stamina. And there are many such amazing superheroes in the Universe of DK Films. So don't get disheartened, as Superheroes are going to stay and surprise us very soon or come back with their incredible powers.

Mahakaal - Indian Superhero

When was the last time we saw a superhero movie or show based on Indian Mythology? You cannot recall any. Only 'Hero: Bhakti hi Shakti Hai' is based loosely on Indian mythology. Except for that show, there has been none. Even Marvel and DC comics have characters from Indian mythology. Maya, Indra, Ahriman are few characters who have featured in Marvel comics. Fans of the superhero have been awaiting an Indian mythology-based superhero. Indians have been craving it. While Bollywood failed to do so, DK Films have turned dreams into reality. DK Films, a film production company in India, led by Dushyant Kapoor, has brought us Mahakaal. The character Mahakaal is the grandson of Lord Shiva and possesses powers like super strength, flight, superhuman speed, teleportation, and immortality. The story of Mahakaal revolves around two men who are blessed by the almighty under different circumstances. Yamputra, one of the two blessed souls turned evil and dreams of colonising the world under his feet. On the other hand, Mahakaal was born almighty and thrives to serve mankind and end Yamputra's evil dream. Mahakaal became a massive hit with 1.2 million views on the first episode. The rest of the episodes have an average of 300 thousand views each. The audience and fans loved it. DK Films hit it around the park once again with the superhero genre.

Indian Doraemon is quite emotional

It was just another evening with me babysitting my little cousin. I turned on the TV, hoping for some show which will interest my little brother. Instead, it became a conversation with him about the cartoons I used to watch during my childhood. I told him stories of shows like Shinchan, Doraemon, Pokemon, and so on. He instantly identified Doraemon. Doraemon has been a hit for every generation since its start. The show has been subbed and dubbed across various countries, including India. DK Films, a production house in India and YouTube channel, have recreated Doraemon for Indian fans. On the 50th anniversary of Doraemon, DK Films launched their version of Doraemon. Return of Doraemon, released on 17th July 2020, became a massive hit with around 4 million views. It is an adaptation of “The Last Episode of Doraemon”. This series is followed by three episodes named – The Wedding, The Kidnapping, and Doraemon Returns v/s Time Patrol. All three episodes have an average of 700 thousand views. The version of Doraemon which Dushyant Kapoor created is more character-based than we expected. It respects the humor present in the original series although, the human emotions are more enhanced in DK’s version. In this world, Doraemon is missing leading Nobita has changed a lot because of his absence. There is also a comradery among the original cast. Gian and Suneo, although their original character traits but are much helpful to Nobita and have a rich friendship. Dushyant Kapoor kept the essence of friendship throughout the series. The new re-imagined version of Doraemon has been a successful hit and has resonated with a lot of audiences. We all are looking forward to more episodes about this series. Let us hope we get a re-imagined version of Shinchan or Pokemon someday too.
