One word used a lot in filmmaking is ‘cheat kar lenge!’ Meaning you will do something that the audience cannot catch. For example, while shooting, a line was not shot properly or the facial expressions of an artist did not come properly or such small things. When these problems were caught during the editing of the film, without going to the original location, these scenes with the artist would have been ‘cheated’ by going to Mumbai or where he was at that time. This ‘cheating’ equal to salt in lentils did not bother even the audience. But, director Ranjit M Tiwari’s new film ‘Katputli’ is such a cheating from the beginning to the end that people will remember it for years. Producer Vashu Bhagnani has ‘cheated’ the entire Kasauli here and made it in a town near London. But, neither the leaves of the trees lie, nor the buildings nor the soil. If you watch the film carefully, you will understand that the door in ‘Puppet’ is in the hands of the makers of this film and the dancing has been the audience watching it.
