Now where the location scouting or Recce comes in the picture? Let me give you an example. In 2016 an Indian Marathi language film “Sairat” directed by Nagraj Manjule made the stories of every news channels. Three things were discussed immensely - 1. Location of shoot, 2. Climax of Movie and 3. The Direction. Now the question is why the Location was critically applauded by the critics, even though not even a single photo-shoot was done on that location before?
Let’s discuss this! So the movie was shot at Karmala village and surroundings somewhere in Solapur district of Maharashtra. Now what caught the eyes of viewers was the rawness of the location. Lush green harvest fields, the step well, the old architectural temples gave the vibe of complete originality in the movie. And the movie gathered immense love from the audiences.
