Actor Anshuman Jha is making his directorial debut with Lord Curzon Ki Haveli. The film stars Rasika Dugal and Arjun Mathur in lead roles. The makers have revealed that it is a rare film to be shot entirely in a single lens (of 35 mm). They have also claimed that no other mainstream Hindi filmmaker has ever attempted this before.

Throwing more light on this aspect, a statement from the makers said, “In a time when many filmmakers today are obsessed with amassing gear and stocking up on the latest toys, Jha is setting a reminder on how much can be done with so little, out of choice.”
Bikas Mishra, the writer of the film, has said that Anshuman had made this decision right from the writing stage itself. The two cinematographers of the film, Jean Marc Selva, who is from France, and Ramanuj Datta have called it a “brave and ballsy choice.” Selva added, “He had a very clear vision on the film and is not afraid to take risks as an artist.”
Speaking about his decision, Jha said, “While I had lens options at my disposal, I chose a single lens narrative as I wanted it to be as close to the human vision as possible; consistently 35mm gave me that. A single lens film has a subconscious viewing affect. And I wanted the film to not just look but feel cohesive, a consistent point of view driving the finished piece. Lord Curzon Ki Haveli is a contemporary homage to my favourite film maker, Alfred Hitchcock & his classic film The Rope.”
Lord Curzon Ki Haveli is produced by Golden Ratio Films & Jha’s First Ray Films. It is scheduled to release later this year.
