PC Sriram with Big B – breaking the conventions
May 05, 2006
Amitabh Bachhan &  P C Sriram
P C Sriram, the ace cinematographer who gave several visual treats like the Nagarjuna starrer Idhayatthai Thirudadhey, Nayagan and Alaipayuthey is making his Bollywood debut with the Amitab Bachhan-Tabu starrer Cheeni Kum. Well, the title means less sugar. How was Sriram’s feeling when the offer came? “I knew that this was the movie I would like to enter Bollywood with and it happened,” says Sriram with his characteristic smile. Cheeni Kum is of course a commercial film but Sriram wouldn’t talk about it.
And how was it working with the Big B himself? “Terrific. Mr Bachhan is a thorough professional and he knows what is expected of him. Give him the reason as why you are doing something in the way you are doing, he is quick to understand and does what he is asked to do,” Sriram says spiritedly.

As he is wont to do, Sriram began the muharat shot differently. Breaking the convention where simple dialogue scenes are shot, Sriram began with Amitab walking to the door of a house with an umbrella in his hand. He enters the house, places the umbrella on a stand and looks back. Cut.

Sriram’s approach to cinematography is different. You can call it sophisticated. Some people say he copies his lighting effect from the works of the famous artist Rembrandt. So for the first time, Bollywood is going to get the taste of P C Sriram. There is already another Bollywood movie waiting for him. This untitled film will be directed by Mani Rathnam and will have Amir Khan in the lead. By the way, Ilaya Raja scores the music for Cheeni Kum.
