Delivering the inaugural address, Dr Jerry Vincent Dias said, “I have produced few movies and know in and out of the film industry. For Konkani movies to succeed, the Konkani community needs to view the movie in cinema theatres and hence support the Konkani language and culture. Without the audience, Konkani film industries won’t go forward. If the audience shows their support then more producers will come forward to produce films in the Konkani language.”

“Today we have witnessed the Muhurtham of film Benddkar. If we go a decade back we will know the importance of Benddakar on all occasions. Today people go for DJ and other type of music for various occasions. This film focuses on the life of Benddakar,” he said. He also stressed on the importance of promoting Konkani films, so that it reaches a wider audience.

Speaking on the occasion Walter Nandalike said, “I will support the words of Jerry Dias that audience need to go to the theatre to watch the movie. But if the film brought which will be watchable from the audience. If a new trend has been brought in the Konkani film industry then the credit goes to Harry Fernandes. We need to accept the negative and need to learn something from it and Harry Fernandes. We have taken the challenge to give the best movie in the form of Benddakar. We wish the best to the entire team of Benddkar.”

Varsha Usgaonkar, famous actor from Bollywood in her message said, “Film industry is the industry of dreams but it is a world of gamble. Just like how the government is for the people, to the people and by the people, same way is a movie. But it is the people who decide the quality of the film. Movie can succeed in creating an audio visual impact through which the message will be more strong and effective when it reaches people. This is the third time I am working with Harry Fernandes and I am grateful to him for believing in me. I have got an opportunity to work with him in Zanvoy No 1 team again. I thank him for this opportunity.”

Success is guaranteed. Even late Fr. Alfred Roche’s blessing is invoked by disply. The Roman columns add decorum to the event. God bless all those involved in helping to make this movie become talk of the town. Talents are coming out from under the bushel.
