My tryst with the underworld

When I first came to Bombay from Hyderabad I couldn’t get over a train ride through the Dharavi slums. It looked like one single roof and I wondered how people live there, how anybody can go in and go out. I saw children 2-years old crawling just about 3 feet away from the railway track while the trains were rushing to and fro. Those things made me understand the nature of the city. The general atmosphere of Mumbai was one thing I was really fascinated right from the time I was making Rangeela, while traveling around doing various shoots.
 
Once in a while I used to hear the word Underworld. Obviously I knew about Dawood Ibrahim and many of the gangsters, through whatever was revealed in the papers. But I never consciously thought about what exactly is the underworld. Then one day I was sitting in a Producer’s office and he got this call that a prominent person was shot dead by some gang. The producer was telling me that the person who died woke up around 7.00am and had called him in the morning and said that at 8’O’clock he went somewhere, at 8.30 am he was suppose to meet some friend of his etc…. etc.
 
People have this habit of recounting each and every moment what happened before someone met with a violent unexpected death. While he was talking, since I have this tendency all the time to think cinematically, I thought “If the person who got shot got up at 7 o’clock, then at what time did the killer get up? Did he tell his mom to wake him up because he has a shooting to do? Did he have his breakfast before killing or after killing?” These things were coming into my head because I was trying to intercut the moments of the man who died with the man who killed. Then it suddenly struck me that you always hear about these gangsters only when they either kill or when they die. But what do they do in between? That was the first thought which eventually resulted in Satya.
 
While being in that frame of mind, I saw some photographs in Times of India of arrested gangsters covered with black cloths on their head. Nothing about their body language looked like how Bollywood portrays them. They are like any ordinary people. The guy walking on the road could be a gangster. Even the guy living next door could be a gangster. The whole point is that they have to mix up in the society and look like anybody else and because of that you will not realize that he is a gangster.
 
A friend of mine, not a film guy, who lives in Oshiwara on the fourteenth floor, told me about an instance. A guy lived in his building somewhere in a flat above him. My friend used to bump into this guy in the building’s lift once in a while. And they used to exchange pleasantries, "Hello, how are you? Happy Diwali" and things like that. And then one day my friend’s wife told him that this guy has been arrested and taken away as he has been absconding in a murder case in Karnataka or somewhere. He told me “the thing about Bombay is that you may live for ten years as neighbor to somebody yet have no idea who he is”. That was where I got the plot line for Satya. The fact that Urmila’s character lives in a chawl and Satya lives right next to her yet she has no clue that he is a gangster and is having normal relationship with him.
 
Then one day I met this guy called Ajit Devani an ex-secretary of Mandakni and because of that he reportedly knew and interacted with some of the gangsters. That’s what somebody told me. In my conversations with him he accounted to me an experience he had when he met this gangster whose brother was killed by the police. His brother was also a gangster. Ajit went to meet him. He said that the gangster was abusing his brother’s dead body for not listening to his advice which resulted in his death. That startled me as I have never heard a reaction like that of a person abusing a dead body. Then I thought a gangster lives on power and the brother by not listening to his advice and getting himself killed, he took away his brother’s power to save him and that brought about his anger. His grief came out as anger. I took that as the soul Bheeku Matre’s character. An aspect of this was in when Bheeku Matre laments over Chander’s death.
 
We are social beings. We say ‘Good morning’, ‘hello how are you’ when greeting someone. We behave civilized. I thought an anti-social element lives by his own rules and he would not abide by the social rules and systems. The way he sits on a chair, the way he laughs, his general behavior… there will be a certain wildness about it.  There is a difference in the look between the domestic cat and a wild cat; the eyes just give it away. Bheeku Matre should be like a wild cat. If Bheeku Matre would have gone to school he would have been one of the last benchers and probably he wouldn’t have taken his studies seriously or wouldn’t have taken any kind of advice seriously. So he would want to be a law to himself. Even when he asks a question it should come across like a statement. It doesn’t come as a question because his pride wouldn’t allow him to make anyone feel that he doesn’t know about something.
 
I went to a beer bar in Borivali to check for some location and happened to meet a guy, who was supposedly an ex-gangster. He made me feel very uneasy with his behavior and attitude. Then later on when I met him while I was shooting in that area, he was very friendly, he looked like a different person altogether. Then I realized that the first time I met him he was trying to play up to an image which he thought I had of him because he knew that I knew who he was. Many celebrities do that… if they think that anyone thinks very highly of them, then his or her body language changes. It happens because they tend to pretend. That is what this gangster was doing. Obviously anything you pretend you can’t sustain it for long period of time. So after some time he became extremely normal. That’s what I took for Kallu Mama in Satya. When the builder comes to meet him, Kallu Mama basically pretends as if he is some big-time gangster… but actually he is a clown in the gang which people come to know later. Since the builder is coming with a mindset or with an awe that he is talking to a dangerous gangster he creates an image that intimidates.
 
Then one day at a place called Bara Chawl, I met a man who supposedly belongs to Arun Gawli’s gang. There was so much of built up that people gave me about him, but when I met him he came across as a sweet-natured guy. In every sentence he will use the name of Gawli, “Gawli bhai ne yeh kiya, Gawli bhai ne woh kiya, Gawli bhai ne mereko ghar leke diya”. So his whole existence was about his awe of Gawli and he doesn’t have any identity by himself. He believes that and lives on belonging to Gawli. That I took in Chander’s character.  So each and every character in Satya was modeled on someone I had met or someone I had heard of or something I have heard from a person not necessarily from the underworld. It could be from some people outside the underworld, even in the film world. Everyone had a reference point.
 
But the protagonist’s character was the most unclear in my head. He was unclear to me till even after the shooting. I was confused between whether he had a criminal streak in his head or he is just a normal guy who becomes that way.
 
Once I decided that this is a kind of film I wanted to make, the first person who came to meet me as a writer was Anurag Kashyap. So, I put him on board and he got Saurabh Shukla. We discussed a lot but nothing was clear. So there was no script on the day we started shooting. I went by instinct. And the advantage was that we didn’t have stars, so all the actors were available all the time. 
 
In the first scene we were shooting, this guy comes to Satya for hafta and Satya slashes a knife on his face. In my mind the time he slashes I thought that would be the cutting point. Now Sushant played the goon’s role. Sushant was someone my department had got. I didn’t even know that he as an actor as I thought he was some junior artiste. But since Sushant is a good actor, he improvised and after Satya slashes him before I could say ‘cut’ he screamed, and his scream startled me because I wasn’t expecting him to do that so I forgot to say ‘cut’. Because I didn’t say ‘cut’ this guy who was showing him the koli had improvised saying, “Oh ho pani lao paani lao”. That is when it finally struck my mind as to what Satya should be about. While capturing a scene, all the Directors have a tendency, this is how it starts and this is how it ends. I thought this film should be made in the style of what happened before and what happens after. All realistic performances came in because I stopped restricting actors after that scene. I just wanted them to improvise whatever they feel like. Actors were instructed not to follow written lines but just say whatever they feel like, so most of the times the content was told to them and they kept on improvising and I controlled it on the editing. That’s as far as the shooting part of Satya goes.
 
The interesting thing to note here is that the style of Satya is largely due to Sushant’s unexpected scream. If he had not screamed or if I had told him before itself that shot will cut on the slash, Satya would not have been the same.
 
Like I said I didn’t have a clear story. I kept on changing my mind every day ‘what should happen, what should not,’ but I was very clear about the characters. Where Sathya’’s character is concerned things went wrong compared to everyone else was because of my non-clarity as the story was not clear in my head and also what the protagonist was too was not very clear. So I kept on changing it for the convenience of the plot line. Whereas Bheeku Matre, Kallu Mama, Muley… all these people could be consistent because there was nothing for them in the main plot of the film which was primarily the growth and decline of Satya. Satya slashes someone in cold blood in one scene and in another scene shyly smiles at Bheeku Matre after killing Jaggu and when Bheeku Matre is having a fight with his wife, like a zombie Satya stares at them. Why did he do that?  He did that because I told him “do it”. The inconsistency kind of disconnected him relatively from the audience while watching the film unlike the other characters. The basic secret of Satya’s performance not coming out so well was due to this.
 
In the course of the making of the film I gathered so much of information talking to cops and people that I couldn’t compile all that in one film. I met one guy who happened to be an associate with Dawood Ibrahim in the earlier days, he was not an underworld guy, probably only knew him. He told me a line which has really caught my attention "There are so many people who have died in the war between Dawood and Chotta Rajan. They are out to kill each other for such a long time. But the basic truth is that even today if Dawood Ibrahim calls Chotta Rajan on the phone and if Chotta Rajan is smoking a cigarette at that time, he will throw the cigarette and say "Haan bhai". He has that much of respect for Dawood Ibrahim. They hate each other because they love each other." That line moved me so much and I thought that the line itself deserves a separate film to be made and that was how ‘Company’ got made.
 
Now Contract very technically speaking is not so much about underworld, yes it is about the underworld but unlike earlier films where the protagonist is from the underworld, here the protagonist is not from the underworld. There is also a marked change is in the making style around which the story is built. So when people ask me about Contract ‘how it will compare to the earlier films’ I say that when I went to see Casino after Goodfellas as that is the next gangster film of Scorcese after Goodfellas, I half expected to see Goodfellas again. My first reaction was negative because it is not the same. It is very difficult to tear off from Goodfellas and watch Casino as a fresh film. I expect the same thing to happen to the audience in Contract. But that’s a professional hazard I have to live with so no complaints. Contract is different story shot in a different style. So if Satya dealt with that aspect of a certain time period 10 years back of the inside view of what gangsters are all about and Company is an overview of how a gang functions. Contract deals with a completely different aspect. People say Company is realistic and Satya is realistic. But how do they know it is realistic? They haven’t met these people. The connection to the realism is due to the characters. When Bheeku Matre comes home, his wife is upset with him. Many wives are upset with their husbands when they come home. So people connect with that emotion and because of that it looks real. The characters in Satya are projected differently than the characters in Company in spite of that both of them are called realistic films but the personality of the films is markedly different. What actually happens is that each film creates its own mind state.
 
Contract is different not in terms of emotion but in terms of the subject matter itself and I made it in a very entertaining way. It is not a dark and moody film like a Satya or Company. You can make a gangster film in the style of a Goodfellas or Godfather. I would think that, if Company is Godfather, and Satya is mix of Goodfellas and Scarface, then Contract is styled more closely on a Luc Besson film. It is stylized and the characters are designed to create a high, rather than make you take them seriously in the mood of the Satya or Company. But the fact remains it is taking a step further in to the underworld. One could be staying in chawl, one in boat, one in a mansion… different gangsters will have different lifestyles. I kind of moved away from many things from Satya and company in terms of atmosphere and treatment I have done it very differently from what people are used to seeing and so some people might find it unrealistic as they will take a benchmark from Satya and Company. But this is my take on it.
 
Somebody asked me if Contract is a trilogy. I wouldn’t say that, because trilogy sounds more like a finale and my intent is to make a hundredology of gangster films.

    Let me be succint in my question and since your slip is showing again – I will try not to ruffle your plumes! Does making Gangster movies or reading about them make you a Gangster or a Villain? I do not agree with that thought process!

  2. Bat says:

    Hi RGV,was Prema Katha inspired from TITANIC ?I thought you changed your narration style in SARKAR RAJ (when compared to sarkar). I think that was intentional. How would you rate each of your students in both Telugu & Hindi on a scale of 10 ? I know you can\’t rate most of them .. because it can get personal… but do say something about them..

  3. E says:

    Hi Neets darling…Why should you worry about "others" opinion…the others should matter to you only when you think that the "other" is intelligent…very intelligent..his awareness is 100% and he is making an objective analysis of you. Otherwise he or she should not matter to you…you can just politely say a thank you to him or her and move on….

    Very Clear thinking – no wonders Ram can make movies without the need to Plan every move ahead of time! Ev, you and Celeste think very clear to – I love your thinking style!

    Dear Ramu,                  Till date all the movies i\’ve seen on underworld your treatment seems to be best and strongly convincing. Your characters and incidents are logical and natural. Its in fact surprising and amazing to me that you din\’t have the script of Sataya. I always thought that you have done extensive research over the subject, characters and storyline. I was always curious how the director of Satya and Company realize these movie on the screen and what was all efforts behind the screen. I\’ll be really happy and in fact waiting if you write \’making of Satya and Company\’ as Richard Attenbourough has written \’In search of Gandhi\’ (one of my favourite books).  

  6. I says:

    Neeta, Here is my seriuos reply I am at peace with myself today. Reading about anything will not make you a that. Other wise we all would be Ram, Jesus, BhagatSingh, Mahatma Gandhi or any of the great men we read about in school, wrote essays on them in exams and played them in annual functions in our school days.Then what makes us what we are?? Nothing…Nothing makes us. Nothing comes from outside.As Osho also believed, every thing that we can have or any one that we can be, lives with in us.Reading or exposure or circumstances and incidents in life only stimulate something which is already within you but dorment. Nothing comes into you from outside. Thats why every one broken in love can\’t be Devdas because every one is different from within so same stimulant stimulates some thing different within us and we become different person than any one else.So reading about Gangsters will not make you gangster unless there is a gangster within you who is awaken and given a strong urge or need to come out. Thats why some will succumb and surrender to the tough situations in life where as some may rise above that. There can\’t be any manual in life that all can read under certain circumstances in life and attain same eventuality.(You can stop here rest is beacuse your question has awaken a thinker within me and its denying to stop here.)
    In CONTEXT OF CINEMA –
    Many times I thought why some actors only look good when playing a comic charater where as some don\’t. Is it acting???If they are good actors and can ACT good comedy why can\’t they act a good ANGER or a good SADNESS? Is it really good or bad "acting" as we call it? yes it is but then it shows clearly. Its Studied,Observered,Practiced,Rehearsed and executed well. All the great actors, in my opinion, never acted actually.All the great acts, as we call it, that moved us, changed us, are not acts for me.They are the happenings..the actors didn\’t act they lived the character.And they could do it because  they had that character within themselves and the story or script is intense enough to give that character insode them and urge to come out. Thats why many greats actors had psychological complications after playing a certain characters because what we actually thought was an act was actually the creation or birth of new person and it now has an existense with in the actor.It denies to go dorment again.With just acting this will never happen.
    SHOLAY AND AAG:
    Thats the reason certain acts can\’t be recreated because they were not acts.Sholay is one of them. AAG didn\’t impact people as musch as Sholay did beacuse AAG tried to recreate the "act" and as I said it was not acting in Sholay so AAG missed that "life".Imagine if Sholay wasn\’t there AAG would be called a good movie but it wouldn\’t have impacted people to the extent SHolay did. Probably it wouldn\’t have impacted people at all.AAG was a nicely made movie, recreation of plot was good.Flesh was created nicely but life was missing. And realising that this is Ramu\’s blog not mine ihave to stop my nonsense here. Proabably I will put my personal opinion and analysis on my blog.
    Sorry Ramu for wasting space on your Blog but as my name says I DO :)And I will keep on doing.
    I DO

    Hi Neeta,

    Ok, with one instance of you sharing negitive info (sensational or not)
    and concluding that your intentions behind it were negitive- sounds
    premature. (but if you do it repeatedly, then its ??) I bet hes a Obama
    Fan!..to add to what  EV has suggested, if you know that your
    real intention was just to ask a honest question then you shoudnt be
    bothered much. ..but what you put out there (your views ) definetly has
    some effect on others..I am witnessing how media brainwashes here in
    US..Ramu is not a gangster, but his movies would definetly have some
    impact…good or bad. Do you know that marlon brando repeatedly refused
    to play the role of the Don..as he dint want to be part of something
    whch glorifies mafia..watch videos of uday hussein in youtube..he just
    acts like marlon :). I dont have a problem with ramu\’s movies, because
    they educate me about mafia and its culture…but who knows how
    everybody else interpret them… Excuse me if i took your topic in some
    other direction……keep rockin…you are the darling of this blog !!

    Sanjay.

    I accept that u are a good director.Eventhough u have a good musical sense proved by ur association with Vishal Bharadwaj,still i feel that background music in ur films are not upto mark.Kindly give more attention to this aspect.

  9. Unknown says:

    hello sir , i dont care what the world says about u .. but , im in awe with ur direction .. ur camera tinges,ur back ground scores, the way ur camera moves.. u tend to say things without much talking.. thats what i love.. u are showing some people (im not gonna name them )how a movie should be shot.. all of them(present day directors) are still a big zero … i watched \’aag\’ first day of release ..i liked some parts of it.. esp court scene of babban, he staring at mohanlal only… sir, hats off.. and im a big big fan of mohanlal too ..and if sarkar would have been made by any other director in india other than u , it wouldn hbe what it was.. it was a majestic,powerfull movie… its one of the best movies india has ever seen

    Its very interesting to know how the mind of a keen observer works and transforms everyday incidents to memorable sequences on celluloid.
     
    Its a case of inspiration at work. Do you watch your contemporary bollywood directors film? Wich of the last decades works by these contemporary directors have you liked and why? A fair answer not sarcasm expected!
     
    Will you take up projects on professional basis? I mean will you take up scripts produced by rival production houses(read dharma Prod, YRF, Bhatt Camp) or prefer to get inspired and make a film with similar story line and produce it?
     
    What motivates you a story/characters or the money generating potential?
     
    What do you think of Hrithik the actor, will we get to see him molded by you into a memorable character?

  12. Aju says:

    btw the casting of sudeep is fantabolous. He is a fantastic talent that has not got the right treatment. Hope he becomes a bollywood regular. But the problem is he in bollywood would be relegated to supporting roles.
     
    Hope you use him again with a pivotal role in your future projects.

    @endho -your comment brought it to a diff level altogether. Problem is same you just read it didn\’t grasp it may be because you are not meant to. What ever being hardwired means to you but story telling isnot required circumstances/incidents are required. Further I said "Some" acotrs are good in certain roles only. I mever said all actors are not good.
    Again you just read casually. never mind.
    I DO

    Endo, thanks for calling me a darling of this blog – I certainly like to think laterally – but look what I did! I got you and "I do", going at each other!! Sorry you two – but it adds to different view points! It amazes me how some people are soooo negative in their thought processes, that instead of see the glass half full, they perpetually take the glass as being half empty – I sometimes wonder if they are born miserable – and also if those are the guys who read more into movies like the ones Ram makes, and are they the same folkes who emulate the characters within those movies!? I have been reading a lot on spirituallity – I know a lot of the greatest Guru\’s claim that everything in within us – hence you should look inwards, agree to a certain degree – Yet, I agree with Endho – that environment certainly has a large effect on us! How could you sit and concentrate on your meditation in the middle of a war with bombs are going off in every direction? Love you guys – it keeps my brains active – I think Ram must be a brilliant fellow – I really miss his crisp, sharp sarcastic sense of humour! I totally came here to read his fabulous come backs (Celeste\’s sugg too) – do you know why he has tonned it down? Thanks guy, Ram and Ev too!

    Dear Mr.Varmaji, I am ready to see your Phoonk alone in any theatre  in Hyderabad. Because I have no beliefs in superstitions. I can see a movie as a movie only. You can\’t afraid me with your movie. It\’s my challenge to you. Best of luck.

    Hi All,
    Few days back i Challenged Mr. Ram Gopal Verma that he cannot invite me to participate in this challenge because he scare that he will loose his 5 lac rupees. I openly challeged that day that If i loose the challenge then i will distribute the tickets of this movie \’Phoonk\’ to all of my staff in office.
     
    Today i got the call from 09912876638 and a person told me that you are selected for this challenge and you have to deposit Rs. 10,000/- (non-refundable) for booking theatre. they also said that i have to make the deposit by today and then they will call me tomm for further instructions. I said that i m ok with depositing Rs. 10,000/- but what is the guarantee that they are a right person and not a fraud. When i asked this question they suddenly said "Thank You!" and disconnected the phone. Funny no?
     
    Now there could be 2 cases
    1. That call is from FRAUD person and asking or money illegally.
    2. That call is a TRUE call from RGV Office, if so then is\’nt a really strange that they are asking for MONEY to book the theatre without any base. Does it mean that Mr. Ram Gopal Verma is not confident about his movie and are sure that he have to pay me 5 lac. prize money so he is trying to collect it from us btw: i m 110% sure that even a 10 yrs old child can see this movie alone in a theatre and win the prize money. Their is not going to be any type horrer thing in it which can even scare a 10 yrs old child. 🙂
     
    As i already said that i am 100% sure that RGV is not going to call me for this challenge becuase he knows very well that i m going to WIN this challenge and he have to pay me 5 Lac Rs.
     
    Btw: for the knowlegde i m going to inform the police regarding the fraud phone call becuase they are asking for money without any base. even If its a call originally from RGV office.
     
     
    Anyone can contact me at 09335108415 to invite me for this challenge or for getting the details for the call i recevied.
     
    thank you

    Hi their,Sending this message in Public Interest, I want to let you know that may be some peoples are doing fraud and asking for money illegaly for this competition. I submitted a post few days back for accepting a challenge and got the call today from mobile no. 09912876638 and said that i m selected for this challenge and i have to deposit Rs 10,000/- (Non-refundable) for theatre booking etc by today. When i asked him that "What is the guarantee that u are a right person and not a fraud?" they suddenly said "Thank you!" and disconnected the phone.If thats a TRUE call from your office then you must have to first proof that you are a legal/correct person and then ask for money when u invite us to Mumbai for watching the movie under a challenge.But if its a FRAUD call then you guys must have a legal strong action again that phone no. so that they will not cheat anyone by using ur fame and name
    If you are a serious and cares for your viewers suggesstions then do update me what action you have taken for my this good faith task

    Mr.Ramu gi how can you say that” You can’t believe supernatural forces", without any Clarifications. 1. Coming to the Ganapathi incident "any stone can have ability to shrink some quantity of liquid in to it". 2. About Shiamak Davar why don’t you think like he just made a "Sixth Sense", Seteir on you? You told that you didn’t met again Mr.Shiamak Davar after that incident; at least you should enquiry about him that still he is talking about dead people. 3. Cumming to the Kid, Now a day Generation is fast. When i was kid I don\’t know what the spelling of “LOVE” is, do you believe that 2nd class kid had given "Love Letter", to first class Kid, and it was happen in my School last year. Kid answering to 222*444 is not that much miracle now a days. There are lots of Mathematical techniques available now a days. When the incident happens you must clarify. When Frog in the Well it thinks it is the World. Well is the territory to frog. It cont live beyond the well. Fear is also same. When you have right information you can Judge what is true what is falls. When You have all the information about Universe you are GOD. Lack of information leads to Fear/Belief/Non Belief.

    Samarpan / GaneshHi ramu,Vaastu Shastra was great. Many people didn\’t like it, iam talking about my freiends.I think it was cool, and i suppose this one would be good too. you\’ve touched a good subject, it needs to be understood.Vaastu Shastra effect is still there on me. Iam scared of that thought, that somenone is around in the atmosphere that we are living in. Phoonk on the other is a very nice subject to watch, bu iam not going to watch it alone.Regardssamarpan9821 42 47 43
