VK Prakash to helm web series based on Ruskin Bond’s stories!
Ruskin Bond is one of the most famous English writers among the Indian readers. His stories are some of the most beloved in all of Indian literature in English. Four of his ghost stories – The Ghost In The Garden, The Wind On Haunted Hill, Wilson’s Bridge and The Overcoat are now adapted made into a web series. VK Prakash and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury will be directing the series, which will be streamed in the OTT content platform ZEE5.
VK Prakash is well known for exploring new facets in filmmaking. With this series based on Ruskin Bond’s stories, he is probably the first established Malayali filmmaker to enter the web series arena. The director has a penchant for trying new technologies in his films – be it the slow motion camera in ‘Police’ or the drone cameras in ‘Trivandrum Lodge’. With his vast experience in the ad film industry, the director has always been on the front to introduce innovative ideas in filmmaking.
His upcoming film ‘Pranaa’, starring Nithya Menen is another very interesting film. The movie is a psychological thriller with only one character in the entire movie. Nithya plays the sole character of an English writer. It is made as a multilingual in Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Academy award winner Resul Pookutty has introduced the system of live surround sync format, which has hitherto been used in Indian cinema. The movie is scheduled for release on January 18
