Dubai: The maiden venture of Glorious Anjelore Productions under the directorial venture of the well-known musician, singer, composer Maxim Pereira Anjelore launched their first ever Konkani-Tulu bilingual movie ‘Ashem Zalem Kashem( Incha Aand Yencha)’ in Dubai under the aegis of Mayura Awardee entrepreneur, singer, actor Joseph Mathias. A huge gathering of Konkani and Tulu movie lovers witnessed the grand programme held at the Banquet Hall of Bangalore Empire Restaurant, Karama on February 25 evening.
MC Roshan D’Silva opened the programme by welcoming the audience followed by a prayer rendered by Lancy Noronha and Sharon Rego. He briefed on the day’s programme and on the achievements of Maxim Pereira, the star of the day that was immediately followed by screening of a video ‘A Tribute to Maxim Pereira’ conceived by Shodhan.
Chief Guests, Walter Nandalike, Sarvotham Shetty of Abu Dhabi Karnataka Sangha, Jennifer Dayan D’Souza of Daiji Dubai, Joseph Mathias of Merit Freight, Tulu Film Producer Shodhan Prasad & Maxim Pereira of Glorious Anjelore Productions were invited on to the stage and honoured with flower bouquet. Later the guests including Nisha Maxim lighted the traditional auspicious lamp and inaugurated the programme.
Later Roshan invited Maxim to speak about the movie. Maxim greeted all the audience for supporting him and being part of the event. He shared some of his earlier lighter moments and said that he and Joseph Mathias would always converse in Tulu whenever they met be it at the Church or a Pooja ceremony. Hence the idea of making a Konkani-Tulu language movie came to his mind which resulted in this movie. He said that both these regional languages needs to be saved and lifted at this point of time as people seldom care to promote them and he has taken a small effort in this direction through this movie and requested all to support him in this cause.
He added that his movie is packed with suspense, comedy, action, good music and brilliant story line besides the acting performances by Tulu Film stalwarts like Roopesh Shetty, Arvind Bolar, Bhojaraj Vamanjoor and Gopinath Bhat along with some of the famous actors of Konkani field. He later said that once the Censor approval is through he is planning to release the movie all over on April 21 and requested all to support him. He also thanked all those who helped him in the release of trailer including the media representatives and expected the same support during release.
Soon Nisha Maxim handed over the audio of ‘Ashem Zalem Kashem’ to Walter Nandalike who released the audio and distributed the copies to all the guests. After the photo session the much-awaited trailer of the said movie was launched and Sarvotham Shetty clicked the button while the trailer appeared on the screen. The audience cheered and applauded after seeing the trailer of their much-awaited movie which is almost ready for release.
Roshan then invited Chief Guest Walter Nandalike to speak on the occasion. Nandalike stated that a revolution in Konkani Film has started and that it is being inspired by the Tulu Film fever which started with ‘Oriyardu Oriye Asal’ film. There are so many Tulu films being released recently and so have Konkani Movies with the recent release of ‘Kazar’ & ‘Ek Aslyar Ek Na’ both by Frank Fernandes and ‘Noshibanchi Khel’ by Henry D’Silva which got released and good response, he added. He also said that Maxim is a not only a dedicated person but also a perfectionist and said that Daijiworld will support him to the fullest as the dubbing and post production part of the movie is being done in Daiji Studios which is the first of its kind done so far and that they are eager to see the outcome of their work. He also revealed that the hero of the movie Roopesh Shetty has dubbed his voice in Konkani himself though he is a non-Konkani speaker and which no one can make out with the outcome which has come out so perfect. Also since there are so many well-known Tulu artistes in this movie in important roles and that noted Konkani supporter singer actor Joseph Mathias is also there in the movie; one can surely say that the movie is going to be a hit.
Next was Sarvotham Shetty who spoke on the movie release and said that this is a good initiative by Maxim as he planned this movie in Konkani-Tulu mix language and targeting both Konkani and Tulu crowd.
He also shared that most of the people in this field of art are proceeding with mere blind faith where only few of their families support them. He added that most of them are really trying to support their mother tongue and language while very few from the community understand. He said that all Tulu and Konkani Community people will definitely support this movie and make it a hit.
Later Dayan D’Souza also spoke and said that this movie will get good support from the community and his good support is always there with Maxim for his adventurous effort in this making. He also added that both Hindu and Konanki community will surely support for the success of this movie.
Shodhan Prasad too confirmed his commitment to support this movie as he had supported the previous Konkani movies. He said that his Team comprising of Director Ranjith Bajpe and Actor Deepak Paladka will do their best in releasing the movie worldwide successfully. He requested all the audience to support him to the fullest as they have previously in making this movie success worldwide. On behalf of the audience, Deepak Paladka conveyed full support to Maxim and his movie.
Later Roshan announced the names of all media and other supporters who were honored with flowers by Maxim Pereira.
The programme got concluded with vote of thanks by Joseph Mathias who thanked all the supporters in detail and remembered their good deeds.
