How chaotic have our lives become? Chasing big houses and fancy lives, we have forgotten finding happiness in small things in our lives. Depicting our busy lives and showing our neglect towards the old, ‘Barefoot to Goa’, a feature film directed by Praveen, shows the journey of two children going all the way to Goa to meet their grandmother, suffering from cancer.

Speaking about the movie, Praveen said, “The movie will question our lives and make us think if what we are doing is right. At the same time it won’t suggest or give answers; it’s just thought provoking.” Having done rounds at several film festivals and achieved praise, the movie is set for its commercial release in India on April 10. On being questioned how he went about funding for the commercial release of the film, Praveen says, “I didn’t have any idea of having a theatrical release of the film as I didn’t have enough money.

It is when people at the Mumbai Film Festival and Bangalore Film Festival asked me to get ahead with releasing the movie pan India with their contribution, I went about with crowd funding.” What can be called a sheer coincidence is that the first person to fund the movie was from Hyderabad. “Just after three hours of the opening of website, ITC CEO Shiva Kumar fro Hyderabad made the first contribution to the project,” informs the director, adding that a total of 18 people from the city funded for the film.

Expressing his gratitude towards the funders, Praveen says, “These people are not crowd funders, they are pride funders. It is no more my movie, it is the people’s film. I’m very thankful to Hyderabadis for showing such interest in the release of the film; hope I stand to their expectations.” The movie is going to be released in 12-15 screens across the city.
