VCL delivers 1062 visual effects shots in Ek Tha Tiger

MUMBAI: Visual Computing Labs (VCL), a division of Tata Elxsi Ltd. and a leading player in animation and visual effects, has delivered as many as 1062 visual effects shots in YRF‘s latest Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif-starrer.

The film moves between Dublin, Mardin and Cuba. Its fast paced action sequences required a lot of VFX work to seamlessly integrate into the film. In Dublin especially, the action called for tram accidents and Salman Khan running along the roof of an out of control tram.
Naturally, the tram and most of the streets had to be recreated in CGI to permit these daring stunts. In the rest of the action sequences too, cars and airplanes, explosions and fires were all enhanced or recreated in CGI by the artistes.

VCL delivered these shots using cutting edge VFX technology and a customised pipeline designed for the complexity of these shots. Up to 60 skilled technical artistes were deployed by VCL for this project, which was completed in a record six and a half month period. The entire duration of CG/VFX in the film spans over 30 minutes.
Tata Elxsi COO S Nagarajan said, "This project has helped us showcase VCL‘s cutting edge capabilities in the VFX domain and we are confident that this film will become a benchmark in mainstream cinema for providing viewers with a world-class experience."

"We are very excited about the release of this blockbuster film. The thrilling action sequences have been innovatively shot across continents and breathtaking locations" said VCL creative director Pankaj Khandpur. "VCL has contributed in making several action and stunt sequences in the movie even more thrilling and exciting for the audience," he added.

This film marks VCL‘s 24th collaboration with Yash Raj Films.
