Every filmmaker strives towards making their films as authentic and riveting as possible. Netflix’s upcoming romance thriller Haseen Dillruba is set against the backdrop of a small town by the river. And rafting plays a vital part in the film’s story. So the script demanded a few scenes involving rafting. The makers visited the northeastern states to film these demanding and yet exciting scenes.
Filmmaking is never an easy task, and Haseen Dillruba director, Vinil Mathew faced a lot of challenges while filming the rafting sequences. Since the rafting scenes had to be shot from within the boat, the crew was limited, and hence Vinil had to shoot without the cameraman.
Sharing about how he looked at this unique challenge as an adventure, Vinil said, “We had to shoot a rafting scene in a fast-moving rapid river. Since we could not carry heavy cameras onto the raft, The DOP and I carried portable cameras and got into the raft to shoot the actors ourselves. Holding the camera with one hand and our lives with the other, we shot the scene as the raft dangerously tossed and turned. It was a fun crazy day, at the end of which we were fully drenched.”
