Director Harry Baweja is keeping his fingers crossed for his most ambitious endeavour. His sci-fi film Love Story 2050 has reached post-production stage, and a fortnight back, the film’s teaser premiered. The futuristic film has ample visual effects to create skyscrapers, flying cars, robots & even teddies.

On Tuesday Baweja was in Town to promote the film and his son Harman who is debuting as an actor with Love Story 2050. Baweja’s daughter Rowena is the film’s associate director. Baweja, who terms himself a dreamer, says he has woven his thoughts into Love Story-2050.

“I wanted our audiences to identify with a sci-fi film. So I used a love story as the platform. The first half of the film has been shot in present times in Adelaide, Australia. The second half of the love story shifts to the future and to create that effect, four international studios, out of which one has won an Oscar, have done the needful using computer graphics and VFX,” he adds.

A slick product is getting ready assures Baweja.

“At par with a Superman film. It has something for all ages-there are children in the film. It’d also appeal the elderly who wouldn’t be there to see what 2050 looks like.”

Producer-director Harry Baweja promises his forthcoming Love Story 2050, about futuristic Mumbai, will be more spectacular than Krrish as he has hired technicians involved with films like Lord Of The Rings.

“Thirty years ago, Hollywood got us Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone doing Terminator and Rocky. It was all about letting the machismo hang out. Today, the concept of the actioner and the action hero has changed.

“Overt beefy jungle-man tactics are out. Today’s audience is the subtle urban multiplex audience,” Baweja told IANS.

After Baweja, Shekhar Kapur will showcase a vision of tomorrow’s Mumbai in his film Paani.

“I’m glad I was the one to bell the cat. Everyone seems to have woken up to the powers of special effects. The audience now wants to see more FX films. I feel after my film’s release there’ll be dozens of such films on the floor. This is the future of Indian cinema.”
