Contiloe Pictures to launch 3D animated film ‘Mahayoddha Rama’
MUMBAI: After creating shows for the small screen, Contiloe Pictures is all set to launch its first 3D animated film ‘Mahayoddha Rama’ (MYR), which recreates the story of the ‘Ramayana’ from Raavan’s point of view.
The CG production for the initial part of the film has been handled by Pixon and the major part of the film has been done by Illusions Studio.
Contiloe Pictures CEO Abhimanyu Singh says that the film will be initially launched nationally and that a call on its international release will be taken based on the domestic response.
“Animation is a great tool and grammar to tell stories. ‘Mahayodha Rama’ is a first-of-its-kind 3D animation film with all top Bollywood voices voicing various characters. The launch of MYR is a big step for Contiloe in the field of animation, and it will not only drive children but also the adults through its novel 3D representation. The animation has permitted us to show conversations between the 10 heads of Ravana, which have been voiced by 10 different actors,” Singh states.
The characters will be voiced by actors like Kunal Kapoor, Jimmy Shergill, Sameera Reddy, Gulshan Grover and Raza Murad.
Contiloe has partnered Zee Music for the soundtrack that features popular singer Sukhwinder Singh and lyricist Javed Akhtar. The music of the film marked the last work of the late music director Aadesh Shrivastava.
Commenting on the same, Shrivastava’s wife Vijayata Pandit says, “The album is very close to our heart as it is the last memory of Aadesh and we will cherish it forever. Like his past work, this album too will be loved by all.”
