In conversation with Producer Sukesh Motwani, Bodhi Tree Multimedia Pvt. Ltd.
Bodhi Tree Multimedia Pvt. Ltd., headed by Sukesh Motwani and Mautik Tolia has come a long way in a short span of time with their varied concepts, especially in the diversity in genres they have been able to come up with.
Well, they can be heralded as the one-of-its-kind production house catering to giving audience a youth drama likeNisha Aur Uske Cousins, a horror series like Fear Files, romantic content in Twist Wala Love and Yeh Hai Aashiqui, and comedy sitcom in Tedi Medi Family.
All in all, a complete package, we can say!!
And what’s more? Their recently launched Big Magic show Tedi Medi Family, which has been adapted from Warner Bros’ The Middle has become the No.1 show on the channel.
Tellychakkar.com talked to Producer Sukesh Motwani to congratulate him and his team on the achievement.
Talking about the prime goals of the production house, Producer Sukesh Motwani talked at length, “Our aim has been to make a company which is not dependent on one genre and one kind of storytelling. There was a thought that the company can’t be only driven by me. Hence there was a need to groom a lot of creative people and build a team who can initiate and take forward different kind of work and genres. So the idea has been to make sure that the story tellers within the company are varied in nature.”
On their personal strengths, Motwani stated, “Mautik has always been good in horror, and he is presently building a team that can handle the horror front. I am good in romance, and I have been grooming a lot of writers in this genre. Similarly, we have some really young writers in our team who manage comedy shows. We are glad to have cracked the concept of Tedi Medi Family along with Tarun Katyal and Big Magic on the lines of The Middle. Disney has been nice enough in offering us love stories. Nisha has been a good youth show for us. And of course, with Fear Files also coming into the lineup, we have been able to find a space in all the different genres.”
Sukesh and Mautik have roped in charismatic screen writer, Amitosh Nagpal of Piya Behrupiya for the playright ofTedi Medi Family. On this, Motwani averred, “We are glad that we convinced such a senior writer to get on board. In a way, we can also say that we have been successful in bringing talented people from different spheres. All this has facilitated in our team having a fresher outlook when it comes to cracking new concepts.”
Sukesh who has earlier served as the Programming Head of Zee TV works with one important school of thought. “The school of thought I maintain is that you alone cannot be driving a company. So we move with a mindset wherein we are ready to constantly change and alter, let go our inputs in order to attain perfection.”
Getting back to Tedi Medi Family’s achievement of becoming No. 1 on the channel, Motwani explained, “As I said, this concept has been driven mainly by Mautik and his team. The channel inputs that we get have been awesome, with them being very passionate about this show. The success of Tedi Medi Family has been the result of a collective team passion. The cast has been very apt, and everything has fallen in place. In an attempt of Big Magic to have a family comedy, we really feel they have got a good family property in Tedi Medi Family.”
Coming to future projects, Bodhi Tree is presently working on an exciting concept of lust for MTV, a crazy sitcom for Bindass, huge daily soaps for Colors, Zee TV and Channel V.
On their future goals, the Producer averred, “The real challenge now wil be to build on what we are presently doing, and what we are good at. It will be a fascinating experience to keep the hunger alive, of coming up with that ‘different’ passionate concept that has never been made before.”
Here’s wishing the team at Bodhi Tree all the very best…
