Bengaluru, Jun 1: On Fridays, a film buff looks forward to the new release in a nearby theatre or a multiplex. But the era now is changed when people look forward to what is online in the OTT platform. With Amazon, Netflix, Zee 5, Hotstar and many other digital platforms releasing numerous films and series – its competition time to see who wins the race. Nevertheless, YouTube also has managed to bag lots of films released on their platform.
Sandeep Malani, actor and director is now ready with his award-winning film ‘Nishyabda Nishi’ (Silent Night) to be released online and he has chosen his own production Malani Talkies' YouTube channel to release it.
The film has a strong message at the climax and is a short film of 15 mins that is directed by his son Silver Malani. The background score is by Veer Samarth and Santosh Chawla and Vignesh have edited the film. Aurobindo Kiriyakere has been the creative advisor on the project. Sandeep Malani is the only sole actor in this dark film wherein he acts in multiple characters (a sort of split personality) all in one single frame, shot in the dark. This experiment won him the Best Actor award at the Vintage International Film Festival recently.
The film will be streaming from June 5 and because of the title, Malani has chosen the midnight of June 4 at 00:15 IST hrs to go online with the release.
