Guess Who?

Box Office India

Veterans in the film trade often talk wistfully of a time when the biggest films with the biggest stars were made and released without a single paper ever being signed. One’s word was good enough. Now, of course, we live in an era where everything is documented and bound by contracts. And there is a good reason for this – mere promises have lost their credibility.

Take, for example, this producer who is part of a once-leading production house that has become somewhat dormant lately. The producer has a very active social life and, as often happens, discussions at parties sometimes revolve around concepts one may be working on and projects one may be trying to put together. This producer has made it a habit of green-lighting many projects during the course of such events.

Excited at this go-ahead, the people behind these projects go ahead and start putting cast and crew on board but more often than not, when they approach the producer to release the signing amounts, the producer wriggles out on one pretext or another.

While most projects are then abandoned, some still decide to go ahead and make the film somehow, because, unlike the producer, they want to keep their word to the cast and crew.
