Shadows : Vote for my first film !

Dear Friends !
I’d like to share with you a Short Documentary Film ‘Shadows‘, that I made in collaboration with Ramnath Goenka Award (India’s Pulitzer) winner C.Vanaja [] and has been submitted for a contest organized by ‘One Nation Many Voices : Muslims in America, Stories not Stereotypes’

‘Shadows’ a film by JayaPrakash Telangana & C.Vanaja

‘Shadows’ is a poignant story of A.H.Suri, a Pakistani Muslim who started off humbly when he first arrived in the US. The new paradigm of judging a person on the basis of a stereotype profiling did affect Mr.Suri in some ways as a result of the aftermath of 9/11. Obviously, Mr.Suri dislikes being looked upon as a stranger by the very society, which he has been an integral part for more than 40 years.

Best short film in the contest will be selected based on the number of votes received by the viewers. I’d really appreciate if you (Voting open for viewers from USA only) can take a moment to (register and) vote for ‘Shadows’ before the voting closes (January 15 2008)

Sorry ‘Shadows’ is not Online now, please bookmark this page as I’ll be linking to the video very soon Please Click HERE [] to watch this video and give us your comments or criticism.

We hope you would like the film !

Thank You !
Jp & Vanaja


  1. Just now we finished watching “Shadows”….it’s crisp and right to the point. I wish both of you making this film. All the best for future ventures also.

    Sure, we will vote!

  2. జే or జేప్స్,
    రాజీవ్ గాంధీ చనిపోయినప్పుడు (చంపబడినప్పుడు) నెల్లూరులో వున్న తమిళయన్ షాపులన్నింటినీ తగులబెట్టారు. ఇందిరా చనిపోయినప్పుడు సిక్కులకు జరిగిందేమిటో తెలిసిందే! అలాగే రంగా చనిపోయినప్పుడు oppisiition పార్తీ షాపులకు జరిగిందేమిటో తెలిసిందే! ఇప్పుడు ప్రపంచ వ్యాప్తంగా ముస్లిమ్స్ కు జరుగుతున్నదదే! ఇది తప్పకుండా తప్పే! కానీ ఆపడమెలా?

  3. Your short film is pretty good and well made. It was like watching a Frontline-World episode. Looks like you’ve the potential to make something big, with some training like this fellow at: How long did it take to put it together?

  4. Thank you, Mr Shankar!
    we planned the movie in a week & shot it in 2 days (a weekend). (thanks to Vanaja) the editing took around 2 weeks or so
