The youngest film producer and director of Malayalam Film industry blends in for a comedy thriller – A personal interview with Rahul Ramachandran on Jeem Boom Baa.
“It all started when i was in ninth grade, that’s when i started dreaming about becoming a Filmmaker. Till date i have done about eighteen short Films including the first mobile recorded short film from our state. I used to upload them on youtube with a user id named joker and that’s how i practised and cherished my dream of becoming a Filmmaker”, says Jeem Boom Baa Director Rahul Ramachandran when asked about the origin of his dream.
Not only Rahul Ramachandran’s native is Thiruvananthapuram but the entire Technical team of Jeem Boom Baa is from Thiruvananthapuram. Director Rahul Ramachandran defines it as a team forcibly formed by the nature’s supremacy, he considers that as the biggest blessing to him from god.
The irony is that this is possibly the most youngest and vibrant team the Malayalam Film Industry has ever witnessed, the three reasons to that are – the young Director Rahul Ramachandran who is 25, Sachin V.G the youngest Feature Film Producer as mentioned by the producers council who is just 23 and of course the young protagonist of the movie Askar Ali who embarked his identity in Malayalam industry with movies like Chembarathipoo and Kamuki, is also 25 years young. Rahul Ramachandran says its a major boost for the films making as the core team is built of the people with same spirit and wavelength.
Rahul Ramachandran’s inspiration and support then and now is a single person, he is R S Vimal the man who Directed the classic Malayalam Film Ennu Ninte Moideen. Rahul Ramachandran said R S Vimal mentored him from his initial days of struggle as an aspirant and also taught him many things. That literally makes R S Vimal the guru of Rahul Ramachandran.
He added actor Disney James has also mentored and supported him during different phases.
The major caste consists of Askar Ali, Anju Kurian, sexy Durga fame Kannan Nayar and Neha Saxena. The plot revolves around three friends and the happenings of three main problems occurring to them on a new year eve. The main characters are Basil Kanjikuzhi the struggling Film direction aspirant, Kunjumon Chacko the creative yet unrecognised Cinematographer and Rohini teacher who tutors actors.
When asked if this is his real life story – Rahul Ramachandran laughs and expressed such things could possibly not happen with him but they do share some of his real life experiences on the whole the interview makes the movie more intriguing.
