Goldstone colourizes Guide and Satya Harishchandra

MUMBAI: The media division of Goldstone Technologies Ltd has signed an agreement with Navketan International Films to do the colour grading and restoring of Guide, a Hindi film classic starring Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman.


Navketan International Films is a movie production company owned by Bollywood actor Dev Anand.


The film directed by Vijay Anand is based on R K Narayan‘s classic book Guide and was released to critical acclaim and commercial success in 1965.


Also, Goldstone has already delivered the colorized version of Satya Harishchandra to the KCN Enterprises, owner of world‘s negative rights of the classic Kannada feature film. The film starring Dr Raj Kumar was released in 1965.


Goldstone Technologies media division business unit head C Jagan Mohan said, " Our research team has come out with great detailing required for coloring the movie, frame by frame. Every character was clearly defined and projected the way the creator had visualized this movie."


This is the first film which the media division of Goldstone has restored, colorized and delivered. Apart from restoration and colorization, the format of the movie has also been converted to cinemascope from existing 35mm using a special technology to make it suitable for modern theatres.


"We are really amazed at the picture quality of restored and colorized Satya Harishchandra. The colorized and re-scaled version of movie looks very dynamic in full cinema scope. The film, a classic to begin with, has now become contemporary because it has been colorized, re-scaled to cater to the taste to today‘s movie-going public," said KCN Enterprises owner KCN Gowda.
