Contiloe forays into animated genre with 'Mahayoddha Rama'

MUMBAI: Abhimanyu Singh’s Contiloe Pictures, after a hiatus of eight years, is all set to launch its first 3D animated movie, Mahayoddha Rama. The film is slated for a mid-October release.

Contiloe so far has been producing shows for Indian television. Some of the remarkable ones have been -- Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanuman, Adaalat and Agent Raghav.

Produced and presented by Abhimanyu and Roopali Singh, directed by Rohit Vaid, the film was earlier scheduled to be launched in 2008. The teaser was released in March of that year, but, the film never got to the screens due to some circumstances. Earlier, the CG production for the Mahayoddha Rama (3D, 108 Minutes) was being handled by then one of India‘s leading studios Pixion. However, now the major part of the film has been done by Illusions Studio. The production house is yet to engage distributors for the film.

Mahayoddha Rama has next-gen actors to veteran actors playing various characters. It stars Kunal Kapoor, Sameera Reddy, Jimmy Shergill and Gulshan Grover.

The music of the film is the last stint of the music director late Aadesh Shrivastava, Lyrics have been penned by Javed Akhtar, and the screenwriter is Ashok Banker. The creative direction was by Deepak S.V.

Zee is the official music partner of the film whereas Viacom 18 is the broadcast partner, informs Singh. “Zee has come on board as the music partner. Also, they will be helping us with the marketing as well. Apart from that, we have NucleusNow as the PR partner. We have already sold our broadcasting rights to Viacom 18, hence it will be available on Viacom 18’s platforms, both TV and OTT after the theatrical release.”

Viacom 18's Motu Patlu: King of Kings is set to release on 14 October. Singh refused to comment on the release date.
