Over the past six years, Akshay Kumar and Rana Rakesh Bali’s Cape of Good Films Company has been contributing towards producing superhit films that are meaningful as well as commercial. The “Cape of Good Films” sitting quietly with its insignia on the posters of several successful films has a lot to be proud of with the success of the production house over the years. Established in 2009, this boutique content house started working towards creating movies that are meaningful, yet commercial.
Company partner Rana Rakesh Bali says, “Every story can be told through cinema, provided it is sensitive to the audience you are making a film for. No one comes to the theater to learn a lesson by paying their hard earned money, if you want to say something serious, say it in such a way that the audience understands the point even with a smile. And that is the mantra of Cape of Good Films.”
Over the past six years, from Airlift (2016), Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017) and Mission Mangal (2019) to National Award winning and critically acclaimed films like Rustom (2016), Padman (2018), Chumbak (2017), commercial The grosser films Kesari, Good Newwz (both 2019) and the biggest hit of 2021 were Sooryavanshi – all under Cape of Good Films. Cape’s path-breaking films also include Naam Shabana (2017) and Durgmati: The Myth (2020), played by strong female protagonists. The company’s film Laxmi (2020) and the recently released Atrangi Re (2021) are also proving to be the most watched films on OTT platforms by breaking all records. Not only this, it also holds the highest position in the industry when it comes to 2K records in the production of music videos.
Bali further says that, “What stands out about the cape is that it has no face. “It’s just a team, trying to create something they believe in and want to keep it that way. Our feeling is that, the films we make are bigger than an individual and an entity, and should be protected as such.”
The content house is now looking forward to present popular movies like Raksha Bandhan, Ram Setu and OMG 2. It enters 2022 with a firm belief and endorses content that breaks stereotypes, challenges perceptions and excites audiences to love movies more.
