Well recognized movie make-up artist Vikram Gaikwad stated Sunday that make-up for actors is now not about beautification and that with rise of realism in cinema, the problem is to put make-up that can give a sensible look appropriate for the characters.
Gaikwad delivered a lecture on the Pune International Film Festival (PIFF) on the subject ‘Makeup Designer- Creating the illusion’ at PVR Icon. He was interviewed by Dr Jabbar Patel, director, PIFF.
“While engaged on a Caucasian, Afro-American or Mongolian face, you typically use solely two color shades. However, in India, you’ll discover plenty of forms of pores and skin tones and completely different facial and nostril options. Indian make-up designers have to think differently in contrast with international designers. That’s why they’re good even when they don’t use superior form of make-up,’’ stated Gaikwad.
He stated the expectations and desires of filmmakers have modified from make-up designers through the years. Gaikwad stated, ‘‘There was a time in our industry when makeup was mis-conceptualised as beautification. I have seen actors hesitating to put up realistic makeup, but over the years the scene has changed. Actors like Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh surrender to the makeup designer and value the art a lot.’’
Among the movies screened on Sunday had been Widow of Silence and Nirvana Inn.
“A news report about the conditions of half-widows in Kashmir led me to make this film. I went to Kashmir to interview these women and one of them told me that ‘nobody considered them alive’… I did research on the subject and formed the stories of these women into one story,” stated Praveen Morchhale, director, Widow of Silence.
Vijay Jaypal, director, Nirvana Inn, stated, “The title refers to the cycle of birth and death and reincarnation. It is a non-linear film and experienced actors brought a lot to the table.”
