A hot-shot professional when it comes to the world of advertising, Abhinay Deo is not new to going behind the camera. Boasting of 14 years of experience when it comes to advertising, making a full length feature film was an obvious next step for Abhinay. His Game has just released and naturally, Abhinay is looking forward to reactions for his first ever big screen outing. In a conversation with Joginder Tuteja, Abhinay talks about what went in his mind when he started working on the film.
A slick action thriller with a suspense drama to match – Is it just the right kind of recipe you wanted to put together for Game? Yes, though I would prefer to get the ‘suspense’ part earlier in the statement (smiles). It is basically a suspense film with action, thrills and drama following a little behind. Basically I wanted the genre of whodunit to be back in Bollywood.
I am sure you would have been inspired by the 60s when such films were in vogue both in Bollywood as well as Hollywood. Exactly. Think whodunits and remember Teesri Manzil.

// // // This news will surely delight AR Rahman fans. One of India’s and the world’s most-loved composers AR Rahman will be performing back-to-back in Mumbai on April 24 and 25.
While he will be first performing live on April 24 for the music release of Mani Ratnam’s Raavan for a select audience from Bollywood and the media at Yash Raj Studios, the next day Rahman’s performance will be the highlight of the IPL grand finale at DY Patil stadium. It’s a double treat for Rahman fans as he has not performed live in Mumbai for many years and certainly not after receiving the Oscar.
Ratnam’s favourite composer Rahman is taking a break from his current world tour to attend and perform during the music release of Raavan. Word that Rahman will be doing a live show in Mumbai has already begun to spread in the film industry.
The official spokesperson of Raavan said, “Never before had we started getting requests for an invite to a music function days in advance. Call it the Mani magic, the Rahman magic or their combination. Or maybe it’s the excitement of a Rahman concert as he hasn’t performed live in Mumbai for ages.”
On April 24, the composer is expected to perform a couple of tracks from Raavan and selected songs from all Mani Ratnam films he has scored More >
