Sleeper Hit of the year! RedruM – rakes in 1.50crore opening weekend

While many may not have even heard of the film due to its low key publicity but as the box office reports stand as of now – the film has raked in over 1.50 crore in its opening weekend.

To be honest 1.50 crore weekend may seem a humble number when it comes to the big world of Bollywood but for a film made under a budget of just 90 odd Lacs – its a 100% profit in just three days.

Producers – Durgesh Paul & Varun Bhilwara – look relaxed but were somehow confident of the film’s success. Young producer Varun claims that they had marketed the film in a niche manner and they knew that the undercurrent which the film had was tremendous.

“Rather than focusing and exhausting our budgets in Tier – 1 cities we pivoted and focused primarily to promote our film in Tier -2 and Tier -3 markets. Posters were strategically flooded in those areas and we booked most of our theaters there. We focused even more on Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities during the digital marketing phase and we believe that was most effective.  We were lucky that we partnered with Vkaao as well for Tier – 1 through which we got an exclusive PvR release and thus could make some currents in the big Delhi – Bombay circuits as well” – says Producer Varun Bhilwara

He further added – “Teaming with Paul sir was a blessing and he had the same vision as mine. We look forward to collaborate in the future as well. In fact, we target to release our next film in May 2019. We will make announcements for the same by November this year.  “

The director duo of the film Dhruv Sachdev & Sourabh Bali stands ecstatic.

“We have nothing to add, the response has been great and we are truly humbled.” – say the director duo

Marwah Studios Presented Documentary on Udit Raj

New Delhi: The Capital witnessed the screening of the award-winning documentary, ‘The Crusader’ at Dr. Ambedkar International Centre on 26th July presented by Sandeep Marwah of Marwah Studios.

The biopic is based on the life and career struggles of the popular Dalit leader Dr. Udit Raj who is also the Hon’ble Member of Parliament and National Chairman of The All India Confederation of SC/ST Organizations. The thrust of the documentary is on the trials and tribulations faced by Dr. Udit Raj and how he came out triumphantly.

“It is a beginning of inspirational films on members of parliament. The public must know the hardship our leaders have gone through. A film on Udit Raj is the correct start. Today is 26th July and It is Kargil Vijay Diwas I think this is the high time for all of us to debunk the myths that are breeding discrimination and injustice in society,” said Sandeep Marwah.

“The Crusader deals with the real-life experiences of Dr. Udit Raj—how Dalits are mistreated, discriminated, and denied every basic amenity essential for survival, not to talk about the respectful living,” said Ajay Chitnis Director of the film.

“The dark and grim history of Dalits in our Indian society is very much ancient than the British Civilization in India. Yet, we are not able to break free from the stigma attached to Dalits. With this biopic, I feel people will get a much-needed insight into the lives of downtrodden Dalits. They will better be able to see how deep-rooted the culture of caste discrimination in our minds and society is said Dr. Udit Raj.

Former Deputy Prime Minister L.K.Advani, filmmaker Madhur Bhandrakar, Delhi Pradesh BJP President Manoj Tewari, Ambassador of Venezuela H.E. Augusto Montiel and many other distinguished guest saw the film together.
