Silent films of the 1920s, such as Baburao Painter-directed Sati Savitri (1927), classics such as V Shantaram’s Aadmi (1939), and various award winning Hindi and regional films directed by veterans such as Satyajit Ray, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Guru Dutt and Hrishikesh Mukhejree, are among the close to 1,500 films being restored by the Centre.
The initiative is part of the Information & Broadcasting Ministry’s National Film Heritage Mission (NFHM) to ensure long-term preservation, restoration as well as digitisation of content in a bid to build the country’s film heritage.

The NFHM plans preventive conservation of about 1.32 lakh film reels and 2K restoration of about 1,145 feature films and 1,108 short films.It also plans to do 2K digitisation of 1,200 feature films and 1,600 short films.All this will be done over the 12th and 13th Plan periods. The Centre has allocated about ₹597.41 crore for the project.

To hire consultancy
The Mission is in the process of hiring a consultancy firm to engage with stakeholders, ascertain best practices of preservation and restoration, develop a request for proposal for indentifying implementing agencies for restoration, among others.
The committee has also decided to assess the condition of films with the National Film Archives of India and identify those that need immediate digitisation and restoration.
It also proposes to form a sub-committee for the selection of films for digitisation, restoration, approval of standards for conservation, digitisation and restoration, as also technical evaluation.

DD National to seek metro audiences in new revamp plan

DD National is set to undertake yet another revamp exercise in August to refresh its look and prime time slot in order to attract more metro audiences. In November 2014, DD National underwent a re-branding with a new logo, tagline, and shows. While the core proposition will remain the same, on 15 August, the channel will undergo a revamp featuring a new packaging and style with different hues. “When people tune in to DD, you need to make them feel that the look is good, and we want to pull those metro audiences across age groups,” informed a source. Show launches to tap new audiences In addition, the channel will launch a host of new shows. 


Four shows will be launched in August, two in September, and four again in October. A similar launch strategy will be adopted in the months of December and January 2016. “The channel head and advisors went through as many as 200 pilots. Thirty new shows were selected, out of which over eight have been slotted from August on wards. Thus, we are launching shows in phases. During Phases I and II, we will also do a lot of promotions,” added the source. The new shows are stated to be a cut above and range across genres. 


There will be a pre-independence drama launching on 15 August. Another show made by Annu Kapoor is specifically meant for viewers above the age of 40. In the family drama space, the channel will launch a show called ‘Beti Ka Farz’ in August, which will revolve around a ‘bahu’ fighting for her rights. It is stated to be a modern take on the ‘saas–bahu’ relationship. “Our current primetime shows are more female-oriented. We will launch these new shows to bring in new audiences. The new packaging and style will further brighten the channel and make it livelier,” a source close to the development said. Kavita Chaudhary last seen in Udaan Besides, the channel will launch family dramas as well as a crime show. The crime-based show will see Kavita Chaudhary returning to the channel as an anchor. She was last seen on the channel from 1989–91 in the show ‘Udaan’, which was written and directed by her, and in which she played the lead role.


“The crime-based show is not a sequel but since Kavita Chaudhary will herself be there as an anchor, it will have a connect with DD viewers,” said a DD National official. In October, the channel will launch a music reality show on the lines of a singing competition. “DD National is a GEC and a public service broadcaster rolled into one. Hence, we have a big responsibility to give a message and entertain too,” the official stated. The channel is presently working on developing the shows that will continue to be launched till early 2016 as well. DD National recently launched four new shows—a romantic drama ‘Tum Bin Jiya Jayena’ at 12 noon, a social drama ‘Adhikar…Ek Kasam Ek Tapasya’ at 12:30 pm, a social drama ‘Pragati’ at 2 pm, and a youth drama ‘Ek Laqshya’ at2:30 pm. “In the afternoon slot, we had old shows running for the past three years. The first thing was to get new shows in the slot which we did and now we will have a good mix,” the official added. Sprucing up its ‘DD Dopahar’ slot further, the channel recently launched a new show, ‘Umeed Nayi Subah Ki’, at 1:30 pm. The show is a social drama based on acclaimed Hindi novel ‘Diwaro Ke Paar Akash’. ‘Umeed Ki Nayi Subah’ is the story of a girl named Vasudha who wants to write a book on the life of a woman. The channel will launch another show, ‘Humnawaaz’, at 1 pm on 29 July. This will be a romantic social drama revolving around two families of opposing views. The story also focuses on the ills of society like rape, atrocities against women, and gender inequality.
