Raj Pritam More has won the National Award for Best Directorial Debut for his short film Khisa (2020). The prestigious awards were announced on Monday.

Raj More 

Under the Banner of PP Cine Production Mumbai and Laal tippafilms , Movie Khisa is Produced by Santosh Maithani and Raj More.The film has been shot at  Akola ( Vidarbha).  

The short film is about the loss of innocence that reflects the harsh reality of today's polarized times.

Even after becoming a successful painter, my primary interest was filmmaking, says Raj More

More told  that he was delighted about winning the coveted award. "Every filmmaker wishes to win a National Award," he said.

The filmmaker, a respected contemporary visual artist, said the award has given him a lot of confidence. "This was my first film and I had invested the past two years in it. It had won many awards at various international festivals but after it got selected for the International Film Festival of India this year, I realized that there was a chance that we could win the National Award. I can't contain my happiness. I would also like to thank my team, especially my Saimarjit Sight (DOP) and my Santosh Maithani (editor) for having full faith in my vision and he is also co-producers with me on this short film khisa. I was a new, and they were experienced technicians, but still, they showed confidence in me and backed me all the way.

This announcement couldn't have come at a better time for More,  as he is planning to pitch his next feature film script to producers. "This National Award can make the road ahead a little smoother for someone like me who has no background in filmmaking. Because when you get the tag of 'National Award-winning director' people welcome you and are more willing to listen to your script narrations."

Khisa is about a Class 4 student who decides to get a large pocket stitched on his school shirt. He is proud of his pocket because it sets him apart from the rest of the schoolchildren. But his seemingly innocent action has far-reaching political implications for the adults of his village.

Khisa bring another glory in new year 2021.

Nippon  Gallery presents the show "TH3EE FEMININE PERSPECTIVE" which is curated by Tathi Premchand and Assistant curator Anjali Dutt. Tathi Premchand is the creator of the Nippon art gallery in Mumbai and also an artist.

In our society, there is always pressure on women and expected that ensure they can manage and manage the whole thing like work, family and time limits, professional life, marriages, etc. All these things are always emphasized to women. Women are trying to balance everything. Their entire life manages everything from childhood to death. They are fighting their barriers. They play an important role in our society such as mother, daughter, sister, etc.

The show is based on upcoming the three young contemporary female artists Aditi Purwar, Smriti Rastogi, and Shivangi Kalra, They are BFA students from the College of Art, Delhi. They are going to portray themselves as well as their everyday life experiences and feminine perspective through their striking pieces of art. Play with shadows and experiment with the various mediums. They create the ideology in their pieces.

In this exhibition, the three young women artists have portrayed socially and domestically as a vehicle to express various thoughts and ideas. These three female artists have to see the women as role models and what they are facing problems and doing activities or role in day-to-day life. And artists also depicted their life through their artworks. They explore their ideas against the patriarchal society with their experiences. Mostly their subjects are on their own lives. Also as women, they are fighting the stereotypes of society as well as conservative families. Their recent artworks are on pandemic situations how we are facing and going through mental trouble at homes. 

Artists using varieties of mediums like oils, watercolors, tempera, acrylics, woodcuts, etc. Most of the works are figurative. These feminist artists are presenting their own life experiences through their art pieces. They usually work with vibrant colors in their artworks. They are used in different perspectives and angles such as diagonals, geometrical patterns, aerial views, naked human bodies, etc. Besides, they used home unoccupied space to portray the presence in the place. They have portrayed their artwork in a post-modern and contemporary style as psychoanalysis and intellectually presenting the body. How the body plays various roles in society, both physically and mentally, especially as a woman.

All are amazingly done by artists. The beauty of women is the expression of their entire world. We say by the beautiful lines by renowned artist: 

“These little compositions are the expression of my happiness and that is why perhaps I am particularly fond of them." - AMRITA SHER GIL

{As a young woman artist, she independently learned the art of self-portraiture and developed it as distinguishing features of her respective painters. She made an important place in 20th-century art history.}

This exhibition offers works by three young women artists who suggest and focuses on the subjects who we are facing or deals with it in the everyday lives that we hardly observe.

It would be our pleasure to catch you all in this show.  Nippon art gallery is highly obliged to welcome you all. Kindly visit our website and show your interest in magical artworks by young superb artists and make this show successful.
