Amrendra Kumar is a dialogue writer and even associate director for movie ‘
Jhamela’ that released in 2016. This film was a repeat formula that B’town has earlier used in commercial flicks where a village folk singer dreams to find his place in the tinsel town.
Hence, there was folk tune beats and even some village style dialogues that had comedy and melodramatic story which turned out to be an ‘’all-time flop’’. One must admit that dialogues are always heart and soul of any film. The audience will stay in the theatres only if its dialogues are impactful and catchy.
Whether a film is a hit or flop, people can easily mouth those dialogues. But then a film like Jhamela did not have such dialogues ever to remember. However, Amrendra explored the nuances of delicate relationships existing in village folks against the stark contrast of dry relationships in the urban world.
The highlight of the film was folk music and some dialogues. The village dialogues often uttered by village folks did match well with the narration but it needed some skill actors to mouth them. The film ended in a hurried manner and was heavily dependent on
Santosh Sawant who also directed, composed music, lyricist and even edited the movie.
The film had many shades of a village lad’s experiences (the film may be actor Santosh’s childhood days) but bad handling of the movie generated in a terrific loss only. One hopes to wait and see if Amrendra can get a better scope in future.
