Gyan Sahay – Bollywood Director Info – Glamstr Production House 2018
Gyan Sahay had no family background in the entertainment industry. From a family of engineers in Bihar, it wasn’t an easy or natural decision for him to enter the movie world. Joined Pune Film & TV Institute where he got specialized in Cinematography.
Mumbai (then Bombay) was new to him. Fortunately, he got a chance to work with Ace Cinematographer Shri Govind Nihalani as his assistant. With him, Gyan Sahay was fortunate to work in Shyam Benegal’s films. Bhumika was the first film and that film was icing on the cake as far understanding cinematography is concerned. Later he also worked in Junoon, Kalyug and Attenborough’s Gandhi, Govind ji’s own directorial feature film Aakrosh.
Gyan Sahay got the opportunity to photograph few films as DOP. But most of them were not successful. So struggle continued. A successful film not only helps Actors or Directors it helps all. Little later television became big and bigger. He shifted to his Cinematography work to Television and where his work got appreciated and got name & fame there. Television was much organized and disciplined than film projects that time.
A bound script was a rare thing in Films. But now even film projects are also much disciplined. Every project, be it a film or Television “Look” is a regular word being used now. Everyone give a good thought to design a look for any project one plans. Technology progressing fast and so have to adopt newer technology regularly. With digital technology, it is easier to experiment. Camera, Sound, Editing, Lighting every area is developing at fast pace. One has to keep updating.
“Kaalchakra” was his only film which was very successful, and he still has a Silver Jubilee Trophy of the film with him. He was a DOP in the film. It was released the same Friday as Mr.Bachchan’s “Shehanshah”…
Sar Aankon Par, Bairi Piya (Bhojpuri) are the feature film he directed as well. He mostly worked on Television as DOP, as Director, and as Producer too. He is a pioneer in Multi-cam Shows on television and has shot more than 3000 Episodes.
Bournvita Quiz Contest was on Zee which I directed & photographed and was on air for 10 years.
As DOP, Antaksahri and Saregamapa are the two cult musical shows. Both shows were on Zee and for 12 and 15 years respectively. A cult Comedy television show Produced by Smt.Jaya Bachchan and Directed by Anand Mahendroo “Dekh Bhai Dekh” was his first experiment with Multi-Cam Shoot. Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai is also one of his favorite comedy television show he worked. Nanhi Si Kali Meri Laadli on Doordarshan which he Produced and Directed was a great success.
Just completed a Feature Film “A Se Anaar ” which he produced, Directed and Photographed. It has got Official Entry at few International Film Festivals. The film is not a documentation but inspired by a tragedy / real incident happened in Bihar where many children lost their lives due to poisonous mid-day meal. Director Gyan personally believes that any kind of corruption or negligence should not be tolerated in Education and Health department. The country goes back may miles.
“At present Internet /Digital platform are looking good & magnetic. Feature Films, Short Films, TV Series, Web series, Advertising films, Animation Films. There are a lot and lots to do. Upcoming directors have a chance to tell a story they want to say. But it is always better if one gets some education on filmmaking .. Filmmaking is basically a form of art but there are lots science involved in it. Learning will always help. One can learn from various ways. One can join an Institution, one can learn while working with any good craftsman, one can learn by sincerely watching films. But without sincerity, nothing could be achieved. Success lies in the hands of the audience. The audience should get pleased. And to please them content is the star. No other star can guarantee a success.” – Words of an advice of Director Gyan Sahay to the young talented directors.
