Exclusive: Was Drained Emotionally By 98.73 Per Cent During 47 Days, Says Actor Satyadev
The divide between parallel cinema and mainstream cinema started with the emergence of Bollywood and it’s star-system. Soon, the idea penetrated into all industries across the nation. Several decades later, the masses and the artists are bridging the gap between these two. Actor Satyadev Kancharana is one of the first names that we think of for taking this movement two steps ahead.
Watch the trailer of the murder mystery movie 47 Days here:
Once again, he graces us with his murder-mystery film titled 47 Days, as a suspended and disturbed cop. He finds his way through misery to calmness and takes us along on his journey. In part 1 of the interview, we spoke about the wait for this film’s release and his craft in selecting scripts. Now, let’s get to know more about his craft of acting. Read the edited excerpts of his interview here.
Q. How is the audience reaction to your recent releases?
A. They all may be thrillers, but they have a different story to tell. Like we have several love stories. Love is a common denominator, but the stories are completely different. Similarly, the murder mystery thrillers that I have done, the tension and thrill may be the same, but the stories are completely different. The audience’s reaction has been phenomenal. I have been getting messages from people telling me that 47 Days is really good. They are enjoying all of it.
It’s nice to be in that space. I have a lot of respect for people who take the time to send a message. I make sure to I respond to all the message that I get. For me, it is a lot of gratitude. The least you could do tell them thanks. That’s the least I can do. I would expect the same, so I try to do it. Sometime you may not reply, but a ‘like’ would make someone’s day.
Q. If you could go back in time and change one thing about this film, what would it be?
A. I would probably add more of the emotional part. I love the emotional phase of Satya’s journey. Being a fan of tragic emotion myself, I’d like to add more of it.
Q. During G.O.D, you mentioned that your energy dropped by 70% after performing emotional scenes. How was it with 47 Days?
A. I would say 98.73%. There were a couple of scenes in the film where I told Pradeep (Maddali, the director) that completely drained me out. You are playing a character who has a tragic loss. It has been only 40 days since the event so the sadness always runs through your face. You have to make sure that it is always visible. Everything adds up and bursts at the end when he finds out the reason.
You would know what this guy is going through if you watch the film. There are a lot of unanswered questions and mysterious elements happening around him. He wanted to know all the answers. Probably that’s the worst thing that could happen to anyone. We shot the climax for 36 hours straight, without any break. I was drained physically and emotionally.
Q. How would you sum up your experience working for 47 Days?
A. It is something that I would cherish for a long, long time. Pradeep had immense faith in me and I had to live up to it. I always enjoyed taking up responsibility. I have known him since Jyothi Lakshmi (Puri Jagannadh, 2015) so, I had an additional responsibility since this is his debut film. Every film I did has a special memory attached to it. And in the same way, I take this film with me.
