It may be politically correct and ecologically balanced to go green in every walk of life. But the over-emphasized green tinge in the trailer in Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa has been received with whoops of outrage by a section of the critics and public.
Responding to the adverse comments on the green-dominion, Gupta has decided to revise the colour scheme of the trailer. The colour-corrected version of the trailer goes on air this week.
Says the director, “The version we saw is meant for the theatres. On the large screen the green colour that seems so overpowering on the television computer and mobile screen will spread itself out. Here on the smaller screen we did not anticipate the colour’s impact. We’ve corrected it now. A new version of the trailer will go on air this week.”
Sanjay Gupta reveals that the sound quality of the film has also been suitably altered for the smaller screen. “My sound recordist has worked on a different sound quality for the trailer of Jazbaa. In the theatres, the sound mixing would be done to accommodate the digital Dolby and Dolby atmos sound facility. But on the computer, television and mobile screen the sound has to be far less enhanced, much more intimate.”
Having set to rest the criticism regarding the saturated green-centric colour of the trailer, Sanjay Gupta defends his film’s hue and personality. “Every film of mine has a distinctive sound, look, appearance, flavor, colour and personality. In Jazbaa we’ve gone for a particular look and sound. The film’s technique would make itself apparent when the film releases. Why are people jumping the gun on the basis of the trailer?”
