Humari Film : The CanMan


The Directors

Hum Manoj Kumar Sharminda Hain


As promised earlier, here is our first attempt at film making. Though we wanted to re-edit it, add some deleted scenes and do lots of touch ups before putting it on a blog or youtube, but I think we can show you the cut submitted for the competition. So here it is...

Ladies & Gentlemen presenting....

And I must say you ve done a great job... Mr. Detective and Mr. Canman Rocked !!

So we've had a Karamchand with a Carrot, A Raja with Rancho.. the monkey , Anil Kapoor with his fruits in Race and now we have you, Mr. Detective with the comic books ;)

Wish you all the very best for the competition :)

The Can-man. Reminded me of CID. Honest. My husband and I were addicted to it. Short and cryptic. I expected a rib-tickling twist in the end, but it ended CID'ish:(

bhut khub...mubarka..lakh lakh wadhiya

Soumyadip said...

Yes, it did remind me too of the TV series CID. Good job.

Now time for some disscection.

The story was nice, but I felt that that Buri nazar dialogue should've come at the very end.

Liked some of the camera angles, especially the one of the Sony mobile phone.

Some of the transitions were unnecessary but then a couple were great. I believe that transitions should either be out of the world or very simple, the in-between stuff don't work.

The camera movements, though it appeared that it was made deliberately jarring, looked more accidental. And some finer editing was needed.

It is quite easy for me to watch and comment, but indeed you guys should be applauded for the effort. I always tell my friends that I would do this and that, but never do them. You did it.

hahaha..nimbu n mirchi?? hehehehe..very bollywood...loved it alok...lage raho!!

memsaab said...

Very nice :-) But where were the weeping Maa and the orphan? Ha ha.

Nidhi said...

Am sorry Alok, am responding to a comment on your post before you did the honours, but couldn't control myself :D

Memsaab's comment gave me an idea :D

If there would be a weeping maa and an orphan.. then the production house name should be "(K)limbu and (K)mirchi" Productions :D

(K)Inspired (K)by : (K)ekta (K)kapoor

Trillian said...

The CanMan is interesting.
The Directors are...directing.
We wouldn't know which one you are, but we are certainly intrigued...
We also derive an odd pleasure from flattering comments and would like to thank you for yours.
Presently, we are going to stop writing in the royal pronoun.
Nice writing, the humour is much appreciated.

@ Indianblogger – Thanks. We’ll try not to disappoint you with a CID-ish climax next time.

@ Mannu – Thanks Bro.

@ Soumyadip – Thanks Dude. Now that’s what I call a feedback. Some transitions even I feel were bit amateur and childish. (I bel. in simple transitions myself.)
Thanks for the comments…they gonna help us while we shoot n edit our next film.

@ Trinaa – Thanks for loving it. We are trying to improve with our next film..

@ Memsaab – Ooops..wish we had access to more actors (if we had I would’ve asked one to replace me and act well in the first place though).

@ (K)Nidhi – LOL…if I had weeping maa & an orphan then you guys would’ve demanded that quintessential Gaanv Ki Gori/ Gaanv Ka Postman &/or Weeping Maa’s Vidhwa Bahu too ;)

@ Trillian – Thanks for sparing time on my blog Her Highness :) we are..I mean…I am honored ;) and thanks for the appreciations. BTW I am the guy on the left in the pic & playing Detective Vijay in the film..Hope therez no more confusion..Keep visiting

Very filmy! Some parts reminded me of the SONY CID series. Good effort. Although I felt the story could have been better, and the editing tighter. Cheers.

I got the link from indianblogger (7th comment), watched it, and then showed it around. Some liked it, some disliked it.
