Concannim Moviedom

Producing Quality Konkani Films

By Tomazinho Cardozo

"Konkani Cinema Day" was celebrated on 24th instant because it was on this day in April 1950 the first Konkani film "Mogacho Anvddo" was released in Mapusa, thanks to the pioneering efforts of late Al Jerry Branganza. It was a saga of dedication and sacrifice because even at that time one required a lot of money to produce a film. Today, after 56 years, have we made significant achievement in this field? There is no doubt that the answer to this question is negative. The second Konkani film "Amchem Noxib" could be released only after Liberation in 1963. This was followed by "Nirmonn", "Mhoji Ghorkarn", "Sukhachem Soponn", etc. (Panorama, NT)
