Abhishek Sharma and Zee Music Present Ramzing’s ‘When It’s All Over’ – The Lockdown Tribute for Youth



MUMBAI; 21st January 2021: As the Covid 19 pandemic has begun to show signs of recovery and the euphoria around the vaccination has kicked in, a quirky and funny new music video captures our experiences of surviving the global lockdown perfectly. Renowned filmmaker Abhishek Sharma, who has directed films like Tere Bin Laden, Parmanu, The Zoya Factor and Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari has produced ’When It’s All Over’, a timely music video by singer and lyricist Ramzing. Directors Ritesh Varma and Aniruddha Khanwilkar have directed this catchy song and to add to the post lockdown charm, Aniruddha has also acted in this video.

Right from over-eating, to living alone and dreaming up super parties with friends once lockdowns would lift and vaccination would begin, this video will connect with young people across India. Abhishek Sharma said, “COVID era that began in 2020 reminded me of 9/11 in many ways. The world as we knew it changed suddenly with this pandemic…When I heard this fantastic song by Ramzing, it was like a call to arms! I had to bring it out in the world. I loved the positive spin to the pandemic as it talks about hope and it does so in a funny way…It’s a musical narrative that dreams about going back to normalcy. We had very limited budgets but my directors, Ani & Ritesh and their team worked very hard to give it a million dollar look. I’m really happy to present their labour of love to the world and thank Zee Music for supporting this little project with a big heart.”

Ramzing, who has composed, sung and written this musical film of sorts, added,” A few months into the pandemic we were all getting tired of the lockdown, the social distancing, the masks, and all that. I asked my son, Siddharth, “So what are you going to do when this pandemic is over?”. Without skipping a beat he said, “I’m gonna take off this mask and throw it in the can. I’m gonna go party when there’s no more quarantine ban!” That was the inspiration, and that night I wrote the rest of the song.”

For the Director duo, Ritesh and Aniruddha, a chance to recreate pandemic life with humour was inspiring: “We felt that this was a perfect opportunity to create never before seen visuals that were unique yet relatable for our audiences. Also, it goes without saying that none of this would have been possible without the constant support of our amazing producer Abhishek Sharma (Writer-Director of Parmanu, Tere Bin Laden) who showed immense faith in our vision and backed us all the way.”

According to Aniruddha, who has also performed in this video: “I got super excited when I got to know that I will be the one who will be acting in it because being a Michael Jackson fan since as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a part of a music video where I get to dance, look into the camera and take a quick spin. So I got to do all that and much more.”

*प्रेक्षकांच्या भेटीला येणार मराठमोळा ‘रूप नगर के चीते’*


‘रूप नगर के चीते’ असं लक्षवेधी शीर्षक असलेल्या मराठी सिनेमाची नुकतीच घोषणा करण्यात आली आहे. आता मराठी सिनेमाचं शीर्षक असं हिंदी का? असा प्रश्न कदाचित तुम्हाला पडेल, पण त्यामागील कारणही तसंच आहे. ‘रूप नगर के चीते’ हे सिनेमाचं शीर्षक ९०च्या दशकात प्रदर्शित झालेल्या एका हिंदी सिनेमात असलेल्या ‘हम रूप नगर के चीते है, शिकार पर ही जीते है’ या गाजलेल्या संवादावरून प्रेरीत आहे. हा सिनेमा मुख्य भूमिकेत असलेले दोन चीते म्हणजेच जीवलग मित्रांवर बेतलेला असणं हे देखील शीर्षक ‘रूप नगर के चीते’ ठेवण्यामागील दुसरं कारण आहे.

बॅालीवुडमधील सुप्रसिद्ध फिल्ममेकर विपुल अमृतलाल शाह यांचे पुतणे संगीतकार मनन शाह यांनी एस एंटरटेन्मेंटच्या बॅनरखाली ‘रूप नगर के चीते’ या मराठी सिनेमाची निर्मिती केली आहे. प्रसिद्ध निर्माता-दिग्दर्शक रोहित शेट्टी यांच्या ‘स्कूल, कॅालेज आणि लाईफ’ या आगामी पहिल्या मराठी सिनेमाचं दिग्दर्शन करणारे विहान सूर्यवंशी हे ‘रूप नगर के चीते’चं दिग्दर्शन करीत आहेत. या सिनेमात दोन मित्रांच्या कथेसोबतच मैत्रीतील आजवर कधीही न उलगडलेले काही दुर्लक्षित पैलू सादर करण्यात आले आहेत. ‘रूप नगर के चीते’ हा सिनेमा दोन बालमित्रांचा रोमहर्षक प्रवास आणि एक घटना घडल्यानंतर त्यांचं दोन भिन्न शहरांतील विरोधाभासी जीवन दर्शवणारा आहे. फेब्रुवारी २०२१ मध्ये या सिनेमाच्या चित्रीकरणाचा शुभारंभ होणार आहे. या निमित्तानं मराठीतील दोन चित्यांचा ऑनस्क्रीन प्रवास आणि त्यांची अनोखी कथा प्रेक्षकांना पहायला मिळणार आहे.

लक्षवेधी शीर्षक आणि उत्कंठावर्धक कथानक असलेला ‘रूप नगर के चीते’ हा सिनेमा लवकरच प्रेक्षकांच्या भेटीला येणार आहे.


‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ to go on floors soon.­

A Marathi movie, with a catchy title ‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ has been announced. Why a Hindi title? The title ‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ is derived from a popular dialogue, ‘’Hum Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey Hain, Shikaar Par Hi Jeete Hain’’, of a 90s Hindi film. Another reason behind the title ‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ is that the movie is based on two childhood friends aka two cheetahs who are the protagonists of the film. The relevance and relatability of this title would be very well known and understood by the viewers when they see the film in Cinemas.

Music Director Mannan Shaah, nephew of popular filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah is producing ‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ under his banner ‘Ace Entertainment’. The film is to be directed by Vihan Suryavanshi, director of Rohit Shetty’s much awaited first Marathi film ‘School College ani Life’.

‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ is a fascinating journey of two childhood friends and their contrasting lives in two different cities after an incident that changes their lives forever.

Produced under Ace Entertainment, ‘Roop Nagar Ke Cheetey’ is set to go on floors in February 2021.

एखादं क्षेत्र आपल्या कार्यकर्तृत्वाने गाजवत असताना इतर क्षेत्राचीही जाण असणारी मंडळी क्वचित आढळतात. शिरूर लोकसभा मतदारसंघाचे माजी खासदार शिवाजीराव आढळराव पाटील हे त्यापैकीच एक. आपल्या बेधडक स्वभावाने राजकारणाचं मैदान गाजवणारे शिवाजीराव आढळराव पाटील यांनी राजकारण आणि समाजकारणासोबत आपली कला व साहित्याची आवड नेहमीच टिकवून ठेवली आहे. याच आवडीतून त्यांनी वेळात वेळ काढून ‘टर्री या आगामी मराठी चित्रपटाच्या टीमची सदिच्छा भेट घेतली. विशेष म्हणजे या चित्रपट निर्मिती मध्ये शिवाजीराव आढळराव पाटील यांचा मुलगा अक्षय आढळराव पाटील यांचाही सहभाग आहे.

याप्रसंगी ‘टर्री’ चित्रपटाच्या टीमला शुभेच्छा देत त्यांनी चित्रपटाबद्दल जाणून घेतलं. तसेच आपल्या आवडत्या चित्रपटांबाबत बोलताना ‘टर्री’ चित्रपटात मध्यवर्ती भूमिकेत दिसणाऱ्या अभिनेता ललित प्रभाकरच्या ‘स्माईल प्लिज’ आणि ‘आनंदी गोपाळ’ या चित्रपटातील कामाचेही कौतुक केले. ‘मी बेधडक वृत्तीने काम करीत आजवर यशस्वी झालो आहे, ‘टर्री’ हा पण बेधडक आहे त्यामुळे तो यशस्वी होणारच’ असा विश्वास त्यांनी यावेळी बोलून दाखवला.

जबरदस्त ऊर्जा असलेला, काहीही करण्याची धमक असलेला तरुण म्हणजे ‘टर्री’. मराठीतला डॅशिंग स्टार ललित प्रभाकर ‘टर्री’ चित्रपटात मध्यवर्ती भूमिकेत दिसणार असून लवकरच इतर कलाकारांची निवड होणार आहे. ‘ऑन युव्हर स्पॉट प्रॅाडक्शनने ‘प्रियामो एन्टरटेन्मेंट’च्या सहयोगानं ‘टर्री’ची निर्मिती केली आहे. प्रतीक चव्हाण, अक्षय आढळराव पाटील आणि विक्रम धाकतोडे या सिनेमाचे निर्माते आहेत. महेश रावसाहेब काळे या चित्रपटाचे दिग्दर्शन करीत आहेत.

Screenwriters Association announces SWA Awards 2021


Submissions now open for SWA Awards 2021 for screenwriters and lyricists in 15 categories

For Immediate Release

January 8, 2021

Celebrating the power of excellence once again, Screenwriters Association of India (SWA) announced the second edition of SWA Awards, the only awards in India dedicated entirely to screenwriters and lyricists of Hindi Feature Films, Television Shows and Web Series. Judged by a jury of eminent screenwriters, these awards will continue to be the most coveted and prestigious awards for writers in India.

The Screenwriters Association organized the first ever awards for excellence in writing last year with the inception of SWA Awards 2020 that was held on September 27th and gave out awards in 16 categories in Feature Films (Article 15, Gully Boy, Soni), Television Shows (Bhakarwadi, Mere Dad Di Dulhan, Tarak Mehta Ka Ulta Chashma, Baavle Utavale), Web Series (Delhi Crime, Four More Shots Please, Sacred Games 2) and Lyrics (Kesari, Ishaaron Ishaaron Mein). These winners were selected by jury panels of eminent writers and lyricists from almost 90 nominees shortlisted from a huge pool of applications. In all the selection committee considered 223 feature films, 146 TV Shows, 43 Web Series, 146 Lyrics submissions.

The SWA Awards 2020 was applauded by one and all for being highly professional and transparent about its submissions, selection and nomination processes.

The Screenwriters Association has now announced a call for submissions for SWA Awards 2021 from writers of TV shows and Web Series as well as Lyricists of TV Shows released/telecast/streamed in 2020. More information about submission procedure can be found at https://awards.swaindia.org/

Current SWA President Robin Bhatt said, ‘Last year’s SWA Awards 2020 was appreciated widely and now we have started preparations for SWA Awards 2021 to recognize the best in writing in 2020. While we understand that there were many challenges during 2020 because of the pandemic, excellence through writing in the works that were released did shine through. I request fellow writers to participate whole heartedly. We need full support and encouragement from all members to make our own award function a big event. Only good work will get the winner’s trophy, only excellence will be honoured… only the best will win.”

SWA General Secretary Vinod Ranganath said, “To get an award for the best written work of the year is a joy any writer would want. Days, weeks and hours of toil, filling empty pages with words is back breaking and even frustrating. But when it all comes together to create magic on screen and when that magic gets appreciated it’s a gratifying feeling for a writer. It becomes all the more memorable and momentous when you get appreciated by your own community, peers and colleagues. The SWA Awards which commenced last year in the Diamond Jubilee year of the SWA, has become that coveted award for every writer in the industry. I urge all writers of the industry to participate in it, as there is nothing greater than being rewarded by your own fraternity.”

Sridhar Rangayan, Chairperson of the Awards Committee said, “Last year’s SWA Awards elicited a tremendous response. The writing fraternity were really enthused that finally there was an award in India for best writing. In fact shows like Delhi Crime and Four More Shots Please which won awards at SWA Awards 2020 went on to be nominated for Emmy Awards and Delhi Crime won an Emmy too, thereby reaffirming the validity and excellence of SWA Awards in felicitating the best writing talents. Now we are really excited to call for submissions for SWA Awards 2021, for works released in 2020.”

SWA Award 2021 is tentatively scheduled to be held online on June 27th 2021.
