a children's film

Geeta and Durga live in Suvari village, Ghimtoli. Not only did they help us to source costumes, and accessories, but made sure that they were worn right. The actors in the film blended in completely with the villagers, thanks to their sharp eyes.

Satish spent the entire schedule trying to capture Geeta’s beautiful smile, and only succeeded on the last day.

The terrrain of our shooting locations made it necessary that the costumes moved with us with every shift of location. Geeta, Durga, 2 assistant directors, and 2 runners, carried the costume department with them every where we went.

Actors often had to change in the forest or in a car.

Though Geeta and Durga did not smile at the camera, they could be heard giggling and gossiping through the day.

    Making a film is clearly hard work – what an industrious pair, Banno!

      Kate, yes, they were hard-working, and also very smart.

    Who is the one with the dupatta on her head? She looks a lot like my ‘kaamwaali bai’, Bimla (who’s also a pahadi, by the way). 🙂

      The one with the dupatta on her head, is Geeta, the reluctant smiler.

        Thanks. I thought that was her. That bare hint of a smile in the third photo is very sweet.
