About the project

Titvi - A bright hope is a feature film about the journey of three kids in rural India who aspire to a higher education and their parents who strive, against all odds, to provide it.



The film is set in a village in Maharashtra and has been inspired from some true events of my villagers. Titvi - A Bright Hope is a documentation of the struggle and hardships faced by students and their parents in a village. We want to educate our kids. We want what's best for them - but are the facilities enough? Are our attitudes correct? Are we doing enough to give the next generation the best education?


My niece studies at the government school in my village. She asked me one question -


"Why can’t I speak in English?" 


This is what inspired me. I knew I needed to tell this story! So many children in rural India want a decent education but are not able to get it. Why? Why can’t they have the same education from the government like the urban children? 




This is the story of every family in the rural India, and I want to show it to the world. They deserve better. They deserve to be rewarded for the hard work they put in to succeed in life. 


A Team Effort!


The most amazing thing about this film is that the actors are the villagers from my village! The entire cast & crew is my villagers with whom I joined hands to tell this story! They didn’t need much training because they have faced the struggle themselves. The whole village came together for this film. 

The kids were all first time actors. It was very difficult to teach them, groom them, manage with their needs and requirements. But I'm happy to tell you, that they have created on-screen magic and I can't wait to show it to you! 






What's next?


I want to share this story with the world! This film will be entered to film festivals around the world. We have finished the shoot and production of the film, and in order to start the post production we are in dire need of funds. I have exhausted all my personal money to bring the film to this point.



Why crowdfunding?

Although I have been recognized and awarded for my shortfilms, this my debut feature film. It's the first time I'm trying to tell a larger story. A producer will not support this film because we don't have any famous actors, we haven't had a high budget production. We worked on low budgets, with an authentic, real cast, to tell a deeply personal story. I want to bring this story to world, and only you can help me do this.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 150000 in Shoot and Production

Rs. 170000 in Camera Lighting and Equipments

Rs. 75000 in Editing

Rs. 80000 in DI and Color Correction

Rs. 175000 in Music Folly Songs

Rs. 100000 in Festival Submission


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

Without risk and challenges we can't achieve anything in life. I have risked everything for this film. It was a huge challenge to shoot the film at low budgets, with a cast that has NO acting experience - but we did it! We had fun along the way - teaching, learning from each other, to introduce our story to the world.

The kids were all first time actors. It was very difficult to teach them, groom them, manage with their needs and requirements. But I'm happy to tell you, that they have created on-screen magic and I can't wait to show it to you!

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

I have worked in this industry for years, and have made multiple award-winning short films. This film is a personal project - my family of villagers has worked very hard to make it a reality. I owe it to them to finish the film and show it to the world!
