Mangaluru: Henry D'Silva, a household name in Konkani theatre and movie industry is back again with his new movie "Nirmillem Nirmonem" scheduled to be released soon under his banner Preston movies.
The audio CD of the movie songs which has 6 songs and 2 instrumental numbers with lyrics and tunes by Konkani Music legend, the Late Wilfy Rembimbus was released at a very well attended event held at the St. Sebastian Parish Mini Hall in Bendore on Sunday 14th July 2019. Singer and son of Wilfy Rebimbus, Vishwas Rebimbus released the audio CD (Music by Pappan-Joswin) in the presence of Producer Henry D'Silva, Director Melvin Elpel, Co-Director Norbert John, Lead Actors Prathap Menezes, Hera Pinto, Vinny, and other actors.
Henry D'Silva in his address narrated his experience in the Konkani movie industry which started with the movie Nashibacho Khell. Noshibacho Khell was a hit both commercially and among film critics. "When I ventured into this project, I was worried about what the results would be. But enormous support from the media and the Konkani loving people across the globe made me feel comfortable to make the movie reach to the big audience. The fact that it has crossed 400 shows across the globe, including the US and UK, is a testimony to your support. With this encouragement, I have now ventured into my next dream project. I have kept the budget on a leash, but the quality is even better. I am sure that the Konkani movie buffs will bless me and my team of new technicians and actors with their presence at the movie theaters and spreading the good word. I look forward to that."
Fr Chethan Lobo, of the Capuchin Friars, who was the chief guest and Henry D'Silva's mentor for the storyline and film said that "I have read the story of the movie. I was impressed by it. Every time any good movie of any language is released, my contribution to it is by watching the movie. In the case of "Nirmillem Nirmonem" also my contribution is to watch the movie. If all the Konkani community contributes to this movie in this manner, the efforts and the risk taken by the producer and the whole team will be fruitful".
Vishwas Rebimbus speaking after releasing the movie said "When Henry D'Silva met us about the music and songs for the movie, he said that dad's songs match the movie very well and are also relevant today also. We readily agreed to support his project. We have re-recorded all the 6 songs without making any changes to the lyrics. Pappan and Joswin have given excellent music to suit the current trend and taste. Hope to get people to support to all Konkani musicians by buying original CD's and killing piracy".
Lead Actors Prathap Menezes, Hera Pinto, Bangar Patler famed Director Richard Castelino also shared their opinion on the occasion.
The trailer of the movie was also released on the occasion and gave a glimpse of the film's intensity and intent. The entire media fraternity of the city was present and was felicitated.

The main team - the Producer Henry D'Silva, the two directors Melwin Elpel and Norbert John, the movie lead actors - Pratap Menezes and Hera Pinto took questions (there were many) from the audience and answered them to their satisfaction.
