Can you see your true friends
Who are with you till the end?
I’m a high sky rider,
I’ll pick you up for a ride
Through the Clouds, Past the Stars,
Nowhere you could bring me is too far.

His love and passion with acting and creative thoughts fascinated him to Mumbai – The Dream City.
He got some short but noticeable roles in A.R. Rehman’s Musical movie like ‘ADA – A way of Life’ and Ashok Dhingra’s ‘Banegi Apni Baat’.
Short films, documentaries and constant interest in writing really gave him strength and recognition, but his inner desires and fascination to his motherland again turned him to Dehradun in 2010, now he is taking initiative to invite Mumbai’ans to give more opportunities to new comers from Uttarakhand.

The culture of Uttarakhand is hidden in lots of short stories and literature, and with Real Caliber Sudeep is wishing to give an exposure to Uttarakhand Culture through plays, movies and documentaries in front of common man and the rest of the world.
[tour_page title=”Vicky Yogi”]
Mr. Vicky Yogi is a man with the most popular post-modern proponents of cinematic surrealism, whose dedication to the expression of pure art through the filmic medium has remained untarnished in the face of commercial demand for ‘sellable’ product. His characteristic blend with any character complexities, resonant social commentary and subtle, disturbing, dreamlike sequences of variety films have transformed the small-town actor/director into a cult icon, whose films are some of the most-anticipated amongst critics and audiences alike.
Along with the job of a Director he is also playing successful roles of Producer and an Actor, but in his own words he is much fascinated towards direction. As in the movie world, the Director is king. The director of a movie is the commander and chief of a set. What he or she says goes everything from the look of the overall picture to the action contained within. They literally direct the movements of the actors, the choices of the shots, the rewrites of the script and the final edits. The director works closely with all major departments to make sure the project has all the elements they need. From the Cinematographer to the Gaffer to the Editor, they all take their direction from the Director.
Mr. Vicky Yogi (Vinod) born in Banaras, UttarPradesh is an Actor / Producer and an Independent Feature Film Director currently residing in Mumbai and Nainital, nowadays aggressively working for Uttarakhandi and other regional films like Haryaanvi and Bhojpuri for which usually the budgets are smaller, the cast a bit less known and the production support staff a lot smaller. But it’s an opportunity for unknown or less known artists to get an opportunity to show the entertainment community what they are capable of.
Mr. Vicky Yogi very well knows that the job of a Film Director is high profile and highly lucrative with many well known film directors who are just as famous and making as much or more than the stars they direct. Although he never joined a film school but as with any entertainment job, it often comes down to whom you know. Considering many of the other people you meet and work with in film school or in industry will go on to successful entertainment careers, knowing them on a personal basis really helped him as well.
Just to name a few films he did as an actor are – Aaj Ka Rawan, Pyar Kya Hota Hai, Sindur Ki Saugandh, Bahu Ka Kanyadan, Aatank, Gabru Ganwar, Parde Ke Piche, Low Jot Ki, Cheli, Raseele Tohare Khatir, Maa Padmawati, Uttaranchal Ki Sair, Maut Ka Safar, Pyar Se Pyara Hai Tu and Fauji Babu. Out of these movies, four films are produced and six films are directed by him.
Mr. Vicky Yogi has worked with most of the leading theatre groups such as IPTA. He had also been attached with Bharat Gyan Vigyan Samiti and Manav Vikas Seva Sansthan as a Society President for last 13 years. After having taken theatre experience with most of the esteemed groups, he still wanted to explore new concepts to satisfy his inner artist & to prepare a new platform for new talents. So, he kept on working with Nukkar Naataks in many roles from actor to writer and director throughout the India atleast 30 times and also kept on managing events in various places like Uttarakhand, Surat(Gujrat), Chandigarh, Delhi, Lucknow and Mumbai.
This versatile talent is also currently working as an Editor of ‘The Hill Today’ weekly news paper & magazine published from Haldwani, Nainital.
[tour_page title=”Gajendar Singh Rawat (Raj)”]
An Institution, a phenomenon, a King George in the Empire of Music, this is how he is described in his friends and fans. For more than two decades he is admired by his fans and listeners. His extensive body of work for film and the stage earned him a nickname by his several fans, who themselves have already coined him the nickname ‘Raj’.
‘For elegance and purity of style, for richness and variety of store, he stands supreme for more than a decade’ – this is his merit. ‘It looked as though the instrument was invented for him; and he for the instrument’, said Tejoraj Patwal.
Raj is an Indian composer, singer-songwriter, record producer, musician, and philanthropist. Popularly known as Uttarakhand’s most prominent and prolific film composer. His works are notable for integrating all type of music with electronic music sounds, world music genres and traditional orchestral arrangements.
Having set up his own in-house studio called Sonic fields India at Dehradun, arguably one of Uttarakhand’s most sophisticated and high-tech studios, Gajendar’s film scoring career began in the early 1990s with the regional films and jingle making for various organizations. Working in Uttarakhandi and various other regional film industries, national cinema and theatre, Gajendar has recorded more than 110 songs and jingles nationwide of his film scores and������soundtracks as of 2011 for over 20 film scores nationwide, making him one of the Uttarakhand’s all-time top selling recording artists. In a notable career spanning more than a decade, he has garnered particular acclaim for redefining contemporary regional film music and thus contributing to the success of several films. He is currently one of the highest paid composers of the Region’s motion picture industry. He has also become a notable humanitarian and philanthropist, donating and raising money for beneficial causes and supporting charities.
Born on September 03, 1972, Gajendar Singh Rawat(Raj) was a good for nothing lad till eighteen. But now in his professional career Raj has a robust view to ‘keep to the middle of the path. Appreciation of the entire audience is his motto. The odd man is not your target to please’. His father Mr. B. S. Rawat, was a Deputy Inspector General in CRPF. Raj is also a founder member of Real Caliber Productions. He mastered various music instruments like Keyboard, Piano, Synthesizer, Harmonium and Guitar. His curiosity in Synthesizer in particular, increased because, he says, it was the “ideal combination of music and technology”.
‘He often sings as he plays something on the synthesizer but he never uses a tabla or a harmonium as accompaniment as he believes that the Synthesizer is a complete instrument in itself with in-built everything. He never tolerates even a whisper and wanted everybody to be silent at the time of recordings for his total concentration’ – Mr. Vyankat Pundeer.
The volume, spread and continuity of praise drawn by Raj are phenomenal next only to those of many others from the same industry. Raj was heirloom of the family. He has a quite fine voice that blends with Synthesizer to give an idea to the singer. Fine touches, tonal shades, rich music and embellishments made him famous and popular. With his rich repertoire and his style, he kept him place as an eminent player to the last. Melody and all the fine graces – each in its place and in an appropriate measure – marked his works.
His residence is a beehive of musical activity for over two decades. In some of his works he covers the master pieces of all prominent composers. He initially composed scores for documentaries, jingles for advertisements and Indian Television channels and other projects. He is now at the helm till the final destination of the journey.
