Dibaker Banerjee prescribes small budget movies for easy recovery

Dibaker Banerjee, known for films like Khosla Ka Ghosla and Love Sex Aur Dhokha, says one thing that he wants to change in showbiz is film budgeting. For easy recovery, small budget movies should be prescribed, he maintained.

“Our films budgeting at times become so high that it gets difficult to recover the money. If we reduce that and spend the money on a film rather on other stuffs, then film can be made on smaller budgets and it will be a profitable deal,” said Banerjee.

“It will be easier to recover the money. As an industry we are profitable, but we still have a long way to go. So as a director-producer, I feel this needs to be changed,” he added.

Meanwhile the filmmaker is happy for small-budget “Ship Of Theseus” for winning a National Award but at the same time sad for “The Lunchbox” for not getting the same honour.

“I was happy ‘Ship Of Theseus’ got National Award, but I was a bit upset for The Lunchbox. But it would be unfair to question the jury all the time,” said Banerjee, who doesn’t have a taste for Bollywood masala movies.

“I don’t watch much masala films. ‘Black Friday’, ‘Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi’, ‘Ship Of Theseus’, ‘The Lunchbox’, ‘Maqbool’, etc are the films that I enjoy watching. This is my taste.

“There are filmmakers, who make ‘Titli’ kind of films, but they watch Bollywood masala films. I did not see masala films even in my childhood days. For me, my favourite childhood memory of Bollywood masala film is ‘Parinda’, ‘Mirch Masala’, and ‘Bandit Queen’
