-P.Archibald Furtado, Barkur

Benddkar the musician, super hit Konkani Movie, will be available on Localwood platform from 10th June, 2021. 8pm (IST) onwards.

 Harry Fernandes, Barkur - one of the most successful movie directors in Hindi, Marathi and Bhojpuri languages over the years. He became a household name in Konkani filmdom, which was crawling rather going very slow in producing commercially viable movies till 2014 due to various reasons. Harry and his team took a brave step, a calculated risk by bringing out four films in row. Super duper success in "Noshibacho Khel" followed by "Sophiya" a love story, "Zanvoy No1" a wholesome masala entertainer and above all in  "Bendkar" an emotionally packed beautiful social story with best talents picked both from Goa and Mangalore.

In November 2019, due to non availability of proper theatres at right time it was released only in Big Cinema and selected centres. Various Konkani spectators appreciating and first time comparing it with contemporary quality cinema in Kannada, Tulu and Hindi films.

Alas, when scheduling was on for its shows elsewhere in the Coastal Karnataka, Bangalore and Mumbai, and Goa in Jan / Feb 2020, the most unfortunate Covid 19 pandemic spoiled and derailed the whole set of arrangements. The producer & distributers – The Grace Productions had a long wait to improve the conditions which now seems to be a distant possibility. Moreover today, the cinema lovers accustomed and well versed to watch them at their Android or I phone and mobiles, lap-top, computer or on the larger screens in their ward rooms. The one time fun of watching and experiencing the great sound effects in a movie house together with hundreds of spectators may  be over or a luxury in days to come, as such theatres are now converted as shopping mall and business complex etc.

Benddkar (brass band team) a traditional musician in our native Coastal districts always an integral part of social, religious celebrations like – Weddings, Roce, First holy communion, Jubilees, Ordination, feasts like Compricho Aitar, Parish feast, Monthi Festh etc. No one can forget the heart touching musical scores played by these groups during funerals…. The story of a middle class Bendkar Jacob, played by veteran Goan hero Prince Jacob and his wife Jessie performed by  an all time great and versatile  actress Varsha Usgaonkar and his family had lot to convey about the disappearing art form, once almost every parish had at least a band set or team. The movie received a warm reception in Gulf countries. The press too appreciated Harry Fernandes team for producing an almost flawless wonderful family entertainer, with available resources….

Lead role played by handsome and energetic Kevin D’Mello and debutant Naisa Lotlekar has given her best possible especially to won the young hearts by their dances to the melodious songs. John DSilva and team comprising  Suneetha Menezes, Deepak Paladka  bombard with laughter bombs and most of the character roles doing and exhibiting their best talents for the success of the almost 140 minutes of nonstop involvement in viewing. The Director Harry Fernandes with his cinematographer Shafeeq Sheikh has captured natural cynic and serene beauty of Hoode - Kemmannu, Barkur, Karje- Brahmmavar, Goa etc will give the viewers ‘feel at home town’ with soothing music by Patson Pereira and hit songs composed by Wilson Kateel.

Now coming to the point - The Grace Productions and the Director of Movie ‘Benddkar’ now thought of a novel idea for screening it worldwide for at least for two weeks through Daiji World's OTT Platform "LOCALWOOD" and the film Benddkar starting from 10th June, 2021, 8.00 pm (IST) onwards….
