Box office is brutally honest and does not follow the formula: Abhishek Kapoor

Indian cinema had always enjoyed links with literature, Abhishek Kapoor says, citing the “Apu Trilogy” and “Guide”. The “glorification of mediocrity” prevented this creativity, but the trend is back, says actor-turned-director, who has adapted “The 3 mistakes of my life” in the hit movie “Kai Po Che”.

“The great masters like Satyajit Ray (‘Apu Trilogy’), Bimal Roy (‘Bandini’) and Vijay Anand (” Guide “), among others, the other two media with remarkable spirit and pride,” Kapoor told IANS in an email interview.

He is inclined to god-like figures, which induce hero worship “, resulted in a subsequent culture of heroism in the movies.”

“Compound that, the attitude of herd mentality and the glorification of mediocrity, left no room for hard work and creative crafts to adapt the classic written to the screen. During recent years we are seeing a resurgence yet and I’m glad to walk this talk, “said Kapoor, who has made” Rock On! “Excerpts:

Of the three films he has directed so far, “Kai Po Che!” was the first based on a book. Was it hard?

Film speaks a different language than literature. That is why adaptation is a skill – mixing art and science of writing the story. The visual imagery is the easy part. The exercise of economy of characters and situations without losing the essence, and then add more in terms of flowers to beautify the flow layers, was the hard part. No pain, no gain. All credit to the editorial team to retain his tenacity and good humor during the process.

Most Oscar-nominated works are inspired by the literary work. India is rich in literature, but very few directors take the initiative. Why is this so?

Indian cinema has always enjoyed links with our literature. The great masters like Satyajit Ray (“Apu Trilogy”), Bimal Roy (“Bandini”), Vijay Anand (“Guide”), among others, were married at 2/2 with remarkable spirit and pride. But our popular leans god-like figures, which induce hero worship, led to a subsequent culture of heroism in movies that transcended reality and become the ways of life. Compound that, the attitude of herd mentality and the glorification of mediocrity left no room for hard work and creative crafts to adapt the classic written to the screen. In recent years we are seeing a resurgence though, and I’m glad to walk this talk.

When did “Rock On!”, The film drew attention because successful director Farhan Akhtar made his debut in it, and “Kai Po Che!” was promoted as the book adaptation of Chetan Bhagat. Do you feel any identity crisis?

None at all. This is the sort of thing can feel like spiritual beings, but I crossed the long bridge having risen from my early failures. People can take credit, but they can not take away his talent. The job of a director is a director’s work, after all, in all its uniqueness. There’s more to me than the “I”, and I like it that way. Everyone needs to know about me is best expressed through the work I do.

He has directed three films, but not rebroadcast actor. Why?

I think it’s a part of me that craves versatility. I believe every film has its own journey, as a unique marriage could say. I am the common link between all three of my films. I have ventured to each, guided only by my creative instinct, which has been largely driven by the merit of writing and projects as opposed to follow any trend.

What does it take to win the box office?

The box office is brutally honest and truly does not follow the formula. Matters is the content and accuracy of its timing. There is a market for all kinds of people, be sure to identify the segment and access it honestly with a direct approach. Crack the right combination of these two factors in the long term and to build an understanding of sorts.

What about acting again?

My doors are open. Let’s see who strikes first. With my path of life, I feel I am ready to deliver the substance and depth. I’ve been reviewing some scripts, let’s wait and see what comes out of this process.

What’s next? Are you doing “Rock On!! 2”?

To “Rock On! 2”, the talks have been underway and scripting process has started. Everyone is waiting to see when and how to proceed once the respective commitments of all stakeholders are met.

With two big hits, the expectation will be high when going out with your hand – how will you deal with that pressure?
I do not think about expectations. For me enter a new idea, I have to unlearn everything I can gather before and start all over again. It’s a new beginning for a journey that will unravel as we go. My mind is focused on that.
