The prevalence of video cameras, editing software and online venues has exploded opportunities for amateur film makers. Short films are a good way to express one’s creative side and also to create a portfolio that can lead to more work.

Parasuram Perakalapudi, a second year law student from Siddhartha Law College, Kanuru, has precisely done that. Passion for cinema and its nuances enabled Parasuram to look beyond what was seen on the screen in a theatre.

One fine day, he randomly did some loud thinking and was pleasantly surprised to find compatible interests in a few friends. Parasuram wasted no time in stepping into the shoes of a short film director, a dream he had cherished since childhood.

With a team in place—Gopinadh Reddy as producer, Kavya Pappula as co-director, Syam Agnihotram as lead actor and Raj Varma for cinematography- Parasuram chose a known territory as his first project and shot ‘Evidence’, a thriller that highlights loopholes in existing laws, under the banner Legal Lions Multi-Media.

Buoyed by the 5,000 hits received by his maiden attempt, the team embarked on humour-laced Pyaar Impossible, which depicts how impossible it is for infatuation among adolescents to last for a lifetime. The team saw no reason to stop after its work received 14,000 views on YouTube.

By now, Parasuram had gained a remarkable ease with the camera and other technicalities involved in film-making and the youngster was raring to go. His ever supportive team members were game for yet another project to boot. Thus was born ‘Chandravanka’, the tale of a young girl from a conservative background who manages to woo her love interest without losing sight of the age-old family traditions.

“We uploaded the film on January 6 and it has already received over 18,000 hits. The feedback from friends is also very encouraging. Some of them have said that we have managed to be considerably professional in our approach. That, I think, is the biggest compliment,” says an elated Parasuram.

Sankar Mallineni (editing), Sk. Jasmine (female lead in Chandravanka), Muddanna Vishnu (supporting role) and Praveen Mummidisetty (publicity head) are others involved in the three projects.

Both ‘Pyaar Impossible and Chandravanka fall in the comic genre and Parasuram explains the reason: “We lead a stress-inducing lifestyle that keeps most of us away from humour. Our only aim is to entertain the viewers. If the person watching the film forgets everything and breaks into a hearty laugh, our purpose is fulfilled,” he says.
