Producer Lal Bhatia reflects back when D&G Films started with simple commercials for wines and olives and became formal with the 2018 launch of David and Goliath Films, as a production company that focuses on producing stories. The company's creativity often focuses on the marginalized from within the community, as reflected in ‘Every 68 Minutes’, ‘Suno Na Papa’, and ‘Panah’.
The misunderstood as depicted in A Separate Sky and Chal Sathiyan and its social service with Covid awareness campaigns through Umeed, Samjho Bharatvasi, to the downright remarkable and commercial Tera Mera Rishta.
Over the past three years, D&G Films have won over 36 awards and accumulated approximately 50 more laurels. With successes at Cannes World Film Festival, 11th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival – 2021, California Music Video and Film Awards, Istanbul Film Awards 2021, White Unicorn International Film Festival, London Music Video Festival, and Global Music Awards, to name a few.
"I have always felt shining the light on people who are considered different to others, but if you get to know them, we couldn't be more similar if we tried," says Lal Bhatia, Chairman, David and Goliath Films.
"We choose to use our creative expression to reflect on this reality at every opportunity. That's been our DNA on pretty much every project. Normality doesn't exist — it's an illusion, and it is often our differences that bring us closer together," he added.
