Films should engage & entertain, not preach: R Balki @FICCI Frames Masterclass
R Balki, veteran ad man-turned-film director, took the audience at FICCI Frames 2018 through his journey from ad films to his first feature film ‘Cheeni Kum’ to the latest film ‘Padman’.
In a Masterclass session with senior journalist Anuradha Sengupta, Balki also spoke about his special relationship with Amitabh Bachchan, saying he is a huge fan of senior Bachchan more than anything else.
The conversation started with how the process of a film starts with an inspiration to how things should be rather than how they are. He also spoke about how dialogues are the most important part of a script.
Balki revealed that few of the actors have very good sense of script, sometimes better than the writer of a director of a film.
When asked about how he manages to make a content-oriented film, Balki said that a film should engage and entertain people and not try and preach, “It is great if a message is delivered in an entertaining matter. Also, we have always had films with great content, with more number of screens, more exposure, more number of films made now the content exposure is much more,” he concluded.
