Documentaries to take India's truth to masses

Prachyam is making ten documentaries to bring forth the complex debates on various Indic frontiers, in a succinct, immersive style.  The aim is to create a body of knowledge which is accessible to even the most disconnected viewer.

Origins

An year since we started Prachyam, the tremendous appreciation of the people of India had us our heads scratching - what's the next big thing that we can do for Indic narrative? And that's when this idea hit us. To create something that can be seen as a reference point of discussions.

But who would want to fund an off-beat, controversial, albeit cinematic, but yet heady film on stuff like Aryan Invasion Theory? You guess it right. No one. Hence, we went for the longshot, and logistically complex route - Crowdfunding. And perhaps that's how it was supposed to happen, because the results were purely magical.

Dr. Anand Ranganathan

"The toughest task it to counter the colonial lies that have been internalized by the youth of this country. Prachyam's 10 films can be a groundbreaking step in that direction."

Shefali Vaidya

Author & Political Analyst

"We talk a lot about having an ecosystem. But to have it, we need content creators, filmmakers and bloggers. Prachyam is one such amazing team of Filmmakers."

more about the project

The project will be executed over the length of 2021, most probably upto the mid of 2022. We are trying to create something which will be in a league of its own, within the paradigm of Indology. A team of animators, writers, filmmakers and subject matter experts have already begun shaping the 10 films.

Through a popular culture where ‘Hollywood’ standards of filmmaking class and style are associated with authenticity and social validity, well-produced lies about India and its millennia old culture, have reached the unsuspecting youth as truth.

On the other side, a fusion of awesome filmmaking and scientific research is absent in the Indic space. With these ten films, we aim to start filling this gap.
