NewZNew (Feature) : Animated films may still be in the nascent stages in India, but that hasn’t stopped director Harry Baweja from presenting a realistic 3D animated film, titled Chaar Sahibzade. The film reveals some intriguing, unknown facts about Sikh history and will be released in Punjabi, Hindi, English, among other Indian and foreign languages. Chaar… has been produced by Baweja Movie Pvt ltd and IREALITIES has animated the film.
Since Chaar… is about the four sons of Shri Guru Gobind Singhji, who was the 10th guru of the Sikhs, the scripting and making of the film was co-ordinated with the team at the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) in order to depict the facts correctly. Chaar Sahibzade may have taken a staggering three and a half years to make, which took a toll on Harry Baweja, but his efforts will finally pay off when it releases on November 6. Harry also worked towards raising the quality of animation and tried to make the characters and the film believable. “To raise the quality of animation and make it on par with international standards, my dad put in 1200 odd hours in the studios, sat with the editors, and perfected the copy,” revealed Baweja’s son, Harman.
While the film is about a Sikh Guru’s sons, Harry Baweja clarifies, “The film is not about a religion, but about a few characters and their story which touched my heart.” Likewise, the makers of Chaar hope their film resonates with the audience, and doesn’t merely attain commercial success. As Harman explained,”I have seen the film and I love it. I don’t expect the movie to mint money, I instead wish the audience accepts the film and appreciates the effort that went into making it. I want the movie to be successful for my dad’s sake as he has put in a lot of effort.”

“This is the first time that such a film is being made on such a subject in the history of cinema – We are also not allowed to even animate Guru Gobind Singh, that’s why he is in still (image) form in the film. So, it’s not that we forgot to animate him, it is not permissible actually. That’s why he is there in static form,” quotes Harry Baweja

Merchandise By : Rajiv Sawhney @MATRIX
Matrix was started 23 years ago. We started as a printing firm, in 1987 and later stepped into the world of promotions. Having handled the promotion campaigns for a lot of big players of the Indian market, we have established ourselves as a major player of the industry. We offer a wide range of products and services, which has made us popular among our clients.
We have always been into promotions and merchandise for corporate companies for many years but it is the first time we are doing movie merchandising. We have been approached earlier too by other producers/directors for movie merchandising but we have never been so keen to go forward with it. When Harry Baweja approached us for this movie merchandise we were quite passionate about it since it has a religious touch to it and therefore we thought of giving it a shot.
We have developed a wide range of merchandise which are well planned and well thought of. The merchandises are valuable items that people will love to have it with them. We have been blessed by the approval of the SGPC.
The merchandises will be available in India as well as in some countries abroad. We are trying to get in touch with Gurudwaras across India and abroad too and display the merchandises there in order to reach out to a greater audience. Also in the first two weeks we are doing a 100 touch points in Punjab, Delhi and Haryana. We are trying to get them set up outside halls and auditoriums where the movie will be releasing. We are expecting a huge success.
