After 'Go Goa Gone', Vir Das will be seen next in a quirky drama 'Sooper Se Ooper', being presented by Reliance Entertainment and produced by Jigsaw Pictures.
Having produced over 150 television commercials, music videos and even a critically acclaimed short film, 'The Fall' (starring Rahul Bose), production house Jigsaw Pictures now looks forward to releasing their first commercial feature film with 'Sooper Se Ooper'. The film is scheduled to come to theatres across India on 25 October, 2013.
On his first production, Rajnish Lall - Creative Producer, Jigsaw Pictures said, "Working on this film was like taking a fresh guard in the field of production... it has been an amazing, exciting & rich experience in the last 2 years. From fine tuning the script, putting together the right cast & technical team of my choice, the extensive shoot in Rajasthan and Mumbai to production of lovely songs all within a modest budget has been a Sooper se Ooper experience! In this journey we had the support and guidance of a big studio like Reliance Entertainment."
'Sooper se Ooper' is based on an Indian superstition that "making a will (legal document) is an indication that that your time has come near". The story revolves around the character of Vir Das, whose fortune has dwindled and selling his ancestral property may just be the way out of the situation but he runs into a problem as the ancestral land was not willed to him by his parents. Filmed in brilliant Rajasthan and gritty Mumbai, the story takes an interesting and entertaining turn during the journey from village to city and vice-versa.
The film also stars Gulshan Grover, Deepak Dobriyal, Kirti Kulhari and Yashpal Sharma, among others. The music has been composed by Sonu Niigam and Bickram Ghosh who debut as a music duo in Hindi films and has quirky fusion BGM from Ranjit Barot. The director, a veteran of TV commercials also makes his debut with this film.
Jigsaw Pictures' next feature production is a comic thriller set in Mumbai and Kerala, which they will start shooting in April 2014.
