Veteran film director Umakanth Thumrugoti says people want to see good movies with their entire family, and laments the lack of initiative in their direction.
Thumrugoti, a Disney Feature Animation veteran, recently directed the movie "7 Days in Slow Motion." He was addressing the 40th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here on Friday.
Talking about his film, Thumrugoti, said : "It's a movie on severe academic pressure on children, and it has been told in an entertaining manner."
"The movie involves comedy juxtaposed with drama," he added.
This is the first film that Thumrugoti has shot in India. It won the audience award at Stuttgart's Bollywood and Beyond, New Jersey's South Asian Festival and the Special Recognition Award at Houston's inaugural Indian Film Festival.
