Pallavi Gurjar’s massive contribution to the entertainment field.
New Delhi: When the thought of movies comes to mind, or plays for that matter, the backdrop or the glorification of the entertainment piece itself through lighting, set design, colour coordination, sound, and other aspects, are least thought of by the audience; casually remarked upon for wondrously using these in the said movie or a play, they are but a few fleeting thoughts in a crowd’s head, although one does not know the real significance that these artistically entertaining and eye-pleasing set pieces embalm on the soul, the companies involved and the market for it is gigantic with every niche field in it open for business, and heavily in demand; And expertise in this field are quite hard to come by as adapting to newer forms of technology with the ensuing passage of every year, is highly necessary, and this is exactly what the founder-director of ARTArena, Pallavi Gurjar been doing for the past 19 years, (since 2003).
Mrs. Pallavi has, over the past 19 years, passionately striven and driven her motivation to the completion, management, formulation, designing, and corroborating of all new intricacies in each and every one of her performance sets; scrutinizing every little detail and wringing out all the usage ARTArena and its equally fervent team could get, she is truly a determined perfectionist, who gives equal importance to every designed set piece of hers and never backs down from bolder challenges that may as well prove as risks to other companies. With such ardent fervour, Mrs. Gurjar has come up with the stellar LED Wall setup backdrop, which is the first time used in the Marathi cinema to shoot 20 songs and various scenes for the movie “Tamasha Live”.
A first-ever Marathi musical with a soul-gripping plot ingrained with 20 songs, merged with its inspiring story of two warring journalists and the subsequent events that follow, will lead the audiences to the truth and introspect them to understand the current scenario of Journalism.
