“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” – Langston Hughes     

Those dreams in the eyes of an innocent child, very rarely than often, translates into reality. The immense courage, effort and hard work is the price paid for that glorious dream. Shreya Gupto epitomises that spirit of endurance and accomplishment through her inspirational journey. 

Born on 28th November 1995 in Kolkata and raised in Chennai, Shreya completed her education in Chennai and Bangalore. Ever since she was a child, she was quite clear about her dream of becoming an actor someday. And that dream realised soon, when she got a chance to work as a child actor in Tamil films. After completing her education, she later moved to the city of dreams, Mumbai and joined Anupam Kher’s Actor Prepares.  

In this candid conversation, with Shashi Mukherjee, on Digital Commentary’s Trending Talents, she speaks her heart out about her journey as an actor from the Tamil Film industry to Mumbai’s digital content industry. Featured in ALT Balaji’s Ragini MMS returns, Zoom Studio’s Mom and Co, Going Viral Pvt. Ltd., she also shares her experiences of working with various Youtube Channels including RVCJ, ScoopWhoop, TVF, The ScreenPatti, FilterCopy and AIB.

The Immortal Art of Historical Films in Indian Cinema

In the second episode of Digital Commentary’s new podcast, host Ankit Shukla discusses the world of Fantasy and Historical imagining in Indian Cinema.

Digital Commentary

Human psychology is nothing but extremely weird, at one point we dread the unknown but at the same time, we can’t help but yearn for it. The curiosity of imagining the history that led to our existence seems to be inextinguishable. Almost hand-in-hand is the desire to imagine a world entirely different from ours, a fantastical place where the rules of our land
don’t apply. Cinema and filmmaking make this dream of ours come true.

In this episode of DC’s FlashBack, the guys discuss why historical/fantastical remain etched in our brains forever and why some are not quite able to hit the mark. The premier and ultimate example of this is the magnum opus Mughal-e-Azam. It remained synonymous with historical cinema for generations until there emerged a worthy successor: Jodha Akbar. Both
these films had a lot in common; their long durations, expensive budgets, lack of special effects and a pinch of realism that made them unforgettable.

Following their blueprints, the last few decades have seen an uproar in the fantasy and historical genre of films. Movies like Bahubali, Bajirao Mastani, Tanhaji and more have stood on the shoulders of their ancestors and done wonders. Some have made their mark and some didn’t, the hosts give reasons as to why that might be. Art-seekers and cinephiles cannot miss out on their passionate discussions and amazing enthusiasm.

Flashback: Take a Deep Dive Into The Spicy World of 90s Action Films

Digital Commentary brings us a refreshing throwback with Ankit Shukla, Cherjanjeevi Bajpai
and Rajiv Singh.

90s Action Films

Every age has its own personality, the age in which one learns to grow in this world obviously hits home the most. As the neverending days pass by, sometimes it is great fun to look back at the remnants from our time. They remind us of a different world, it is nostalgic, bittersweet and magical. Digital Commentary has launched a new show with the same idea. FlashBack, an Ankit Shukla Podcast, aims to take us through the world of old Bollywood and remind us of the films that shaped us.

The inaugural episode’s theme is based on the Action Films of the 90s. In the present era of heavily forced remakes and sequels, they talk about the original foundation of pure storytelling and charisma as exhibited by the likes of Agneepath, Andaaz Apna Apna Khalnayak and Shiva. Strange isn’t it? How the movies that now see a cult following didn’t even manage to make profits in their time. Such is the nature of time perhaps, the only
known key to longevity is in breaking the wall itself and doing something new.

It is not hard to miss the nostalgia as they speak about the films that made them into the people that they are now. Their passion is viscerally reflected as they analyse the factors that allowed these movies to become era-defining. This show is certainly hard to miss for all the cinephiles out there!
