Este Blog investe e acrediita na...Proximidade! (whatever that means)

Things are finally falling in place; going through the final phase of disaster management at home, my friendships back to normal and there are a couple of new initiatives that I am going to be a part of. Probably, my next post would be on that and I would want help and support from all of you.

Yet another award for V-Lokam and this time its from Gods female yo-yo, Smita. Thanks a lot Smita ji, keep spoiling me by giving away these kind of recognitions. LOL. Well, I could’ve easily got away by pasting the image on my sidebar, but there’s also this responsibility to transfer this coveted award to some of the bloggers I know. So here goes :
This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

(and i must admit, that text is indeed cleverly written :D )

I chose :
Oxy, Sangeetha, Pavan, Rakesh, Nimmy, Nikhil, IHM, Priya

All eyes are on Poonams Avant Garde Bloggie Awards now. Getting nominated itself was a big thing for me and even if I dont win, atleast theres an opportunity to come up with statements like "Damn ! just missed !!!"

This has been the year when small films hit big time in Bollywood. The success of films like Welcome To Sajjanpur, Aamir and others have shown that it's not just big star names that work at the box office'.

Bollywood's Davids took on Goliaths at the Box Office. Modest budget films like Aamir, A Wednesday, Mumbai Meri Jaan, and Welcome To Sajjanpur, succeeded where bigger projects failed. Lack of big stars can be an advantage at times, it demonstrated.

"The script is really the key component, as it is with any film, bit even when it comes to a smaller film because that film you are not going to be able to sell on the basis of a big star cast," said Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures.

But even with the changing tastes of audiences, and the growing number of multiplexes, a small film isn't always the easier option for producers.

"To tell you the true story, it is harder to sell a film of five to seven crores with no A-list actors but a great concept film than selling an A list film in 40 to 50 crores," said Shailendra Singh, Managing Director of Percept Pictures.

"Our marketing costs are very close to our production costs. Which means that if we make a movie for five crores, often on prints and publicity we might spend another five crores. But that actually helps a movie when it comes to theatrical rights, home video or music rights or the satellite rights. The bigger you make the movie, the bigger you project the movie, the more it is going to get in terms of revenue," added Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures.

With big ticket films like Subhash Ghai's multi-starrer Yuvraaj and action flick Drona failing to register with audiences, the small film was really the big idea of the year.
