What happens when a group of youngsters with a passion for movies and music come together? Well, going by what Vikram Yoganand and Mehdi Ali Khan have got into, what happens is a film, Miley Somehow.

An independent Hindi film created by a crew of young Bangaloreans, this romantic comedy has been shot in and around the city.

First time director, Vikram Yoganand and produced by the lead actor, Mehdi Ali Khan, the actors are all first-timers. “The film is being shot on RED MX camera and is set for release sometime in May or June. It is totally out of our pocket money. Time was the only investment. We have six main actors plus about 25 to 30 people. Everyone is working because of their passion towards films and filmmaking. The whole crew viz., actors, technicians, musicians, etc. have not charged a single penny for the movie. It is passion, zeal and love for films that has driven the team,” said Abhilash Gupta, the lead vocalist for the film.

Talking about the music of the film Abhilash added, “The song, Gumshuda for which music has been rendered by Nobin Paul and sung by Sinchan Dixit, has garnered rave reviews on the social media. We will soon come out with Kehdo, which is also composed by Nobin Paul with lyrics written by Prashanth Lalan and voice rendered by Abhilash Gupta and Sinchan Manohar Dixit. The song is a sure shot winner; some nice rhythm elements, fab groove, catchy hook line and it will make you want to shake a leg. A great boost for the entire campaign.”

With each one from the cast coming from a different background, according to the team, it was definitely a wonderful experience. “People are working full time and some are doing part time jobs. Coming together was a great effort and working with fresh talents was amazing,” stated Nobin.

The crew is now planning to release the film in a few theatres. “We also plan to release it online later and take part in few film festivals too,” said director Vikram Yoganand, who added, “The whole process of making the film was very gratifying and exciting. It’s something I would do for the rest of my life. We want to be successful in doing meaningful films and put our heart and soul into filmmaking.”
