Making of Ashwamedh Kalamanch's Hasya Jatra Episode no. 9 


Ashwamedh Kalamanch's Hasya Jatra Episode no.9 was dedicated to Teacher-Student friendship.Abhijeet Sakpal and Anant Chavan had played roles of student and teacher respectively.Abhijeet Sakpal's acting as a naughty student and Anant Chavan's performance as his teacher both were equally good and the give-n-take, dialogue delivery,timing etc.all were perfect.The overall act was good and interesting was shot in one-take,no retake.But when I saw this act during editing work,I was very much disappointed by watching the 'wrinkles' on background curtains and overall set.We did shooting of all 9 episodes of 'Hasya-Jatra' infront of same BLUE background.So here I thought we must STOP,re-work again on resources, improve our Quality and Standard,change the format of serial and also the level of acts.
So the 9th episode became the Last episode of Hasya Jatra for first season.'Change' is important and …

MAKING OF ASHWAMEDH KALAMANCH'S HASYA JATRA EPISODE 8


Ashwamedh Kalamanch's  first webseries 'Hasya-Jatra' can be watched on our blog  http://www.ashwamedhkalamanch.blogspot.com  .

           Ashish Chavan acted in our promo and webisode no.4 and webisode no.7.
Hasya Jatra's episode no 8 was directed by Ashish Chavan. In this webisode we introduced first girl anchor Rupali More who has also acted in this episode.The chemistry between Rupali and Rakesh Dudwadkar was really amazing during this act. 


       Ashwamedh Kalamanch's  Hasya Jatra's  webisode no.8 is dedicated to the 'POWER OF MONEY'. Rakesh has played the role of 'stylish begger' in this act.He is quite funny in this act.Rupali gets impressed by this begger due to his 'income' and that shows 'Aajkal pyar andha hi nahi...lalachi bhi hota hai :P' - the morale of the webisode. 


       The act was written by Ashish himself,so he had better idea of how to direct this act.He w…

                    "Wo baap, baaphi kya jiski koi beti na ho?             Wo Engineer, Engineerhi kya jise koi KT na ho?"
    Engineers can never forget their college life.75% attendance requirement,assignments,drawings,labs,experiments,projects,vivas,tests,group discussion etc apart from that friends,canteen,peer-pressure,dreams,success-failures,sports,festivals and the list goes on.I know you will say that this is STORY of every students and not only engineers.So what makes ENGINEERS different from others? Yes 'PRESSURE'.They learn how to manage pressure in their work.So many subjects per semester,that too quite difficult to understand.So don't you think 'EXAM FEVER' will be different for them? Definitely,it's different.And if you are staying in hostel then exam period seems like 'SEASON' in the academic year.

MAKING OF ASHWAMEDH KALAMANCH'S HASYA JATRA'S EPISODE NO.6


     Ashwamedh Kalamanch's Hasya Jatra viewership was  increased after first four episodes.We really had very good viewership from India after first four episodes of Hasya Jatra,so my next concern was to increase Blog viewers globally.So we decided to shoot some HINDI language episode. I knew there were 2-3 webseries already running successfully on Internet from Indian serial makers.One of them was actually doing really good.So it was quite a difficult task to grab Hindi viewers to webseries which was lacking in technical aspects.But I trusted my 'marathi speaking' viewers. I knew they will definitely share 'Hindi episodes' as well if they liked it.So we went ahead. 

            Sixth episode of Hasya Jatra was 'Shyamsundar the telecaller'. The making story of Shyamsundar is quite interesting as this episode was only made for filling the gaps and not as a full fledged main act.Infact that'…

Anant Chavan is a good director when it comes to prepare acts which has lots of energy and body language requirements. He has worked with many eminent Marathi stars like Satish Tare,Bhushan Kadu,Nirmiti Sawant and late Laxmikant Berde. The roles which he perfomed in his drama career were very small but all were comedy in nature.So the lessons of comedy which he learned from the directors like Purushottam Berde helped us at every aspect of Hasya Jatra.          Anant Chavan has worked with Laxmikant Berde in 'TUR-TUR', Nirmiti Sawant with 'Jau Bai Jorat' and 'Shyamchi Mummy' and with 'Bhushan Kadu' & 'Satish Tare' in 'Shyamchi Mummy'.He has also done a small cameo in 'Paichaan Kaun' drama. He left the drama field after he survived from the accident which occured with 'Shyamchi Mummy' unit bus several years back.His great escape from the deat…

MAKING OF ASHWAMEDH KALAMANCH'S  HASYA JATRA EPISODE 1 & 2
                       The last week of March 2011 was quite filled with positive energy.All the members of Ashwamedh Kalamanch were charged up after the Muhurat and Shooting of Promo of Hasya Jatra.  April month started with good note. Hasya Jatra was welcomed by viewers of Ashwamedh Kalamanch Blog as well as YouTube and Dekhona.                        'Hasya Jatra' name was purposely chosen as I knew that at some point we have to switch to HINDI language,as the Marathi speaking viewers are only area specific and internet users Marathi speaking people are limited.But as there was not a single Marathi web-serial on internet we decided to keep Hasya Jatra in both languages 'Marathi' as well as 'Hindi'. Writers can express their feelings better in their mother tounge and that was the second reason why we started with Marathi as 'writing script in Marathi' was much easier for all of us.        …
