  4. nice video
    Keep it up, Sithesh and Nagesh ! You have enriched the contributions of modern GSB Youth.

  5. Uttam (Good). This has come out very nicely. Editing is defintely worth appricaition. As a audience I have suggestions. The first and Last scenes were really came out the best. they spill some rare feeling in the viewer. I appriciate your effort and Wish you all the best for your future projects.

    Please note I am not a technial guy hence excuse me if my comments are trivial.

    1. I think there were more Transformations (Morphs) which may dilute the viewers intensity and involvement

    2. Capture and siplay emotions, as an example, instead of expressionless saxophone player add a shot when the player was displaying emotions. Capture the peoples feeling when they say Govindan Govindo Govinda and pulling the teru. Capture the emotions like that old lady parying to Lord in the charriot.

    3. You can blend the Classical music with the sounds of bell and some kind of music that will go better with the scenes like You can have a Flute, Sitar or such solo instruments overlapped with the actual bell and “Jagant” sound etc. That sound may be studio created

  6. Thanks for all, Suggestions and comments will be always accepted by me with great honour, this shall pave scope for improvisation.
    Thank you once again, wish me luck!.God bless bless.
