Cinema Bandi (translating to “The Film Cart”) is for all cinema lovers. “After all, everyone is a filmmaker at heart. Especially in our country,” muse Raj & DK. And the film proves just that. In the words of Raj & DK, “It’s grassroots filmmaking at its most basic — shot by a bunch of friends — just 10 people, some of them who also doubled as actors. That’s how an indie is made!”
The film is directed by first-timer Praveen Kandregula and written by Vasanth Mariganti. The film stars an ensemble of professional and amateur actors, including Vikas Vasishta, Varanasi Sandeep Kumar, Rag Mayur, Uma YG, Sindhu Sreenivasa Murthy, Siri Vennela, Trishara. And the music is composed by another first-timer, Sirish Satyavolu.

What is The Movie About?
Cinema Bandi is based on an idea that “everyone is a filmmaker at heart”, the youtube caption of the trailer reads “There’s more story behind the scenes than what meets the eye on-screen”. The film takes place in a village on the border between Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. The villagers speak in a curious mix of Telugu and Kannada – a strange dialect that has never been shown on screen.
Cinema Bandi explores the story of a shared motorist who finds a camera in the backseat of his rickshaw and decides to rally his village and make a film, “picchar” as it is called. Of course, no one remotely knows anything about making a movie. But they have vast experience in watching movies, their intelligence and various ways of “jugad”. How hard can that be !? The film details their hilarious journey of ups and downs as they make their innocent home movie.
