Panorama Of Contemporary Indian Cinema


When a driver finds an expensive camera in the back seat of his rickshaw, he comes up with a ridiculously ambitious plan to gather the village and make a film – a ticket to get their drought-hit village out of its dreary conditions.

Praveen Kandregula


Praveen Kandregula is the director of Cinema Bandi. Before he stepped into the world of films, he studied Engineering at GITAM University in Visakhapatnam. His passion for cinema dates back to his childhood, when his clamors for storytelling were nurtured by making films with his friends. That led him to study cinematography at Whistling Woods International and absorb cinema from all across the world including his favorites Maniratnam and Stanley Kubrick. Through the years he has directed several ad and short films. After a brief stint as a cinematographer for few Telugu feature films, he rediscovered his urgent desire to voice a story by himself.
