With Vistaar as the financing arm and WSG as the production company, it remains committed to backing quality content and has produced a diverse range of quality cinema powered by the conviction of the filmmakers vision.

Led by producer Sheetal Talwar and director, Bhavna Talwar,the boutique production firm under the WSG banner produced its maiden film venture ‘Dharm’ which bagged the indian national film award and was an official selection at the 60th Cannes Film Festival.

Having produced indian language films, the vision of being georgraphy agnostic led to the production of ‘The Joneses’ , the firms’ maiden international feature starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny.

Balancing a steady slate of indian as well as international films since its humble beginnings in 2004, Vistaar / WSG is credited with critically, commercially and poignant cinema such as Ram Gopal Varmas’ ‘Rann’ starring Amitabh Bachchan , Paul Andrew Williams directed ‘ The Eichmann Show’ starring Martin Freeman and anthony La Paglia, south african comedy ‘Finding Lenny’ among numerous others.

It has always been our endeavor to contribute to the society. We have initiated the following groups to work towards upliftment for all.

 

Indian Philharmonic Orchestra

India’s emergence as a dominant economic power is enhanced and supported by the international acceptance and acknowledgement of India’s cultural richness, diversity and depth.

It is indeed surprising that in a nation that boasts of music tradition of over 5000 years and has to it’s merit over 400 unique musical instruments, we do not have a formal face to bridge the musical understanding of the West and India.

With the objective of discovering, nurturing and providing a platform to the unique instruments of music in India and exposing the west to the depth of cultural richness and taken that lies in the hinterland of the country, we plan to discover, form and nurture India’s first philharmonic orchestra: The Indian Philharmonic Orchestra.

This orchestra will be unique in it’s basic composition, such that it will be the first orchestra in the world to have a mix of traditional western and Asian instruments. Something that only India can do. No other country in the world can do this.

As a first step to achieving this objective, we are embarking on a national hunt for discovering the talent that rural India shall be able to provide. Classical musicians, folk musicians, Instruments that provide unique sounds, western instrument players and talent that is waiting to find it’s place under the sun. This 26 week journey shall take us thru real India to discover talent that is pure, unique and Indian. We will hold the 1st concert on 15th august 2017, to commemorate our 70th anniversary of independence.

Indian College Olympics

India needs sports heroes and the way to create, identify and hone them is by democratising the search process. To be held annually, starting 2015, The Indian College Olympics shall invite all the colleges in India on a 25 day sports extravaganza in 14 disciplines to identify the best talent available.
