For English, August fans here’s a playlist director Dev Benegal curated at the invitation of G5A Foundation
Here are links to the playlist.
An award I am particularly proud of because Vikram Joglekar is one of those rare sound recordists and engineers whose knowledge of films and music—he is an accomplished Dhrupad singer—is unsurpassed.
A person with an amazing understanding of cinema, of storytelling and of life itself, I am fortunate to have known and worked with Vikram for over 20 years on all my films.
The Karbonn Mobiles 17th Annual Star Screen Award for Best Sound went to Vikram Joglekar for Road, Movie.
This award is an acknowledgment of Dev Benegal’s commitment to sound in his films.
The soundtrack was a collaborative effort and I share this award with other illustrious members of the sound team. P M Satheesh and Shajith worked on the sound design,Roland Vais and Sharon Smith did the post-production and Dom Tavella mixed the film. A big thanks to Screen, this encourages all of us to continue to strive for excellence.
– Vikram Joglekar

The 18th Puchon International Film Festival (PiFan)’s Network of Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF) wrapped tonight with top Bucheon Award going to Dev Benegal’s Indian project Dead, End Or: How I Learned To Stop Living And Love Being Officially Dead.
Jury head Michael Favelle said: “Dead, End may be seen as a surprising choice given that it’s not an immediately obvious, traditional fantastic film in the way fantastic film festivals are known for. It is, however, a brilliant satirical surrealist comedy of a place that no one has seen before.”
