About the project


Animators from across the world have come together to make a Sanskrit animated movie called Punyakoti. This movie is based on a popular and beloved folksong from South India. The music album for this movie has been composed by the legendary music composer, Sri. Ilaiyaraaja.

Hello, I am Ravishankar, a multimedia expert with over 20 years of experience in making content for children. I am also presently employed with Infosys. I am doing a unique experiment in Indian cinema - the first crowdsourced and crowdfunded animated movie in Sanskrit, based on a beloved folksong called Punyakoti.

Tell me more about Punyakoti...

Punyakoti is a folksong prevalent in South India, about an honest cow. The plot is set in Karunadu and revolves around a cow that speaks the truth at all times. One day, Punyakoti is attacked by a tiger in the forest. However, she begs him to let her go feed her calf and promises to return. Punyakoti feeds her calf and as promised, returns to the tiger to be eaten. The tiger, moved by her courage and honesty, lets her go never to disturb any of the cows again!

What makes this project so special?

The project is a coming together of a consortium of talented people from film, media and IT fields to bring home the greatness of the mother of all Indo-Germanic languages, Sanskrit.

What motivated me to do a project like this?

God has been kind to me and has given me everything. I want to use this life for a purpose more than just plain survival. I have chosen Punyakoti as a means of self-expression to tell the story of living in harmony with nature.

Is there a greater purpose this project aims to achieve?

The movie brings home the message of living a life of integrity and living in harmony with nature in an entertaining fashion. I hope to take this universal message across the world throgh this effort.

What are the challenges I am most likely to face while making this project?

Finding the right talent and likeminded people for this effort and tracking the entire project through the Internet is a challenge. I am making this movie while I am still pursuing a corporate career with Infosys. Me and my family have made great sacrifices in the last one year to bring this project to this stage. We still don't know where the funds are likely to come from. The team that is contributing to the project are accomplished professionals and are doing this out of passion. We are all self driven. Working as a team from different parts of the world without the motivations of money requires great commitment.

Why crowdfunding?

We owe Punyakoti to the coming generation. Punyakoti will introduce the world's first context free language to our coming generation. Sanskrit develops cognitivism in kids. The message of speaking the truth and living in harmony with nature is more relevant now than ever.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 1200000 in Storyboard & Animatics

Rs. 400000 in Composition & Layout

Rs. 400000 in Studio & Infra

Rs. 1500000 in Music Production

Rs. 500000 in Promotion


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

This is a first of its kind experiment in Indian cinema or perhaps even in the world. The people who work with us do so because they love the concept. We are not their managers; neither do we pay them a salary. We just give them an honorarium. Many of them have offered their services for free. They do this over and above their regular jobs. So there may be delays in deliverables. We do not have a fixed infrastructure. We depend on free Internet to do most of our collaborations.

What happens when I don't raise enough money?

This will prove to be a major setback for the project and will delay the movie release. We will have to continue to appeal to sponsors around the world to support us for funds. We may have to reduce the length of the movie or in the worst case abandon the project. This will mean a loss of several years of collective efforts by talented people.

How am I going to prove that I won't just take all the money and run away?

We have already declared to the world through media that we are doing this. We have made progress in more than 20 scenes out of the 31 scenes already. We have put up all the resources of the movie on our website for the world to see and even update about the progress regularly. We have the support from the faculties of premier institutions and the film world. So it is almost impossible to go back on our commitment now. We did all of this even before we went out and asked for money, because we were clear that we do not want to seek funds unless we ourselves are convinced that we will complete the project.

Will you be releasing this movie in theatres or on Small Screen?

We will use all media to distribute and make it available to a global audience including small/big screens and digital distribution channels. Once the product is ready, we will partner with a marketing agency to meet this objective.

What will happen to the revenue generated by this movie?

The revenues generated, if any, will be used to promote and preserve Indian art, traditonal artists and culture. A portion will also be given as a reward for the artists who participated in the movie.

Who will be the ultimate owner and collecting the royalty?

We have registered a proprietary company, Puppetica Media that will own the product.

Hi Ravi, I came across this on twitter and then I read up on this site. This is a story I was told as a child and recall feeling very emotional about it. Its a beautiful story, and I wish it reaches out to more people, especially children. I appreciate the effort you are putting in this, balancing your professional life and a passion to spread a story with a beautiful message. I make this contribution at a time when I am also dabbling with my entrepreneurial venture, having said good bye to a successful corporate job, and therefore hope that the money will be used judiciously. Once again, appreciate the effort and wish you the very best. Regards, Amit

I really wish you a very good success in making this movie...i really felt happy to know that someone is making a animated film for children in SANSKRIT...but very immediate question that arises is ...can the people take interest in watching this film as no one understands sanskrit?? but still u can make it as it all depends on how you direct the movie....people watch movies of different languages.....u shud have met some giants of different companies to collect money...is dat i feel...i am shocked dat 40 lakhs with such a big team of movie makers is difficult to raise....i love to help who ever does things to uplift our nations culture and traditions..on mu part i am contributing 5000 inr...i am sorry dat iam not able to contribute much to your making of film as i am still very young with many desires...i look forward to help you in the future when you make many other movies in sanskrit.....i really appreciate ur interest for sanskrit as now-a days people think our culture as superstitious with no value especially who are educated and living in cities....may the god bless you all....thank you for giving me an opportunity to fund for this film

Excellent idea Ravi. Punyakoti was one of the stories I grew up with....very literally. It is a wonderful if it reaches more people and an animated movie will do it. That you have intended sanskrit as the medium is "cherry on top" or rather "gasagase payasada mele thuppa"! All the best
