Retake, the national level Mass Media festival organized by the Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia and Communications (B.A.M.M.C) department of L.S Raheja College of Arts and Commerce, is being held on the 27th and 28th January 2023 on the college campus in Mumbai. The theme of Retake 2023 is “Bane of the Benevolent”. The unique theme is an inquisitive dip into the morbid corruption of beloved Disney princes and princesses. It is based on the premise that even the most benevolent protagonists can take a turn for the worst and slip into the abyss of villainy and horror. Over 30 colleges from across India are expected to participate in the event this year.
Retake began its journey in 2015. The objective was to grant budding media professionals a platform to explore their talents and upgrade their skills. Even when the pandemic took place, Retake still went on. Following the motto that the “show must go on”, Team Retake continued to organize the festival with the same zeal on the online platform for two years. In fact, turning the challenges into opportunities, Retake was taken to the national level during the pandemic era.
Retake is a journey for the students of Raheja College that culminates on the main days of the festival. At the onset, Team Retake organizes an Institutional Social Responsibility (I.S.R) activity every year. The initiative aims to sensitize its peer groups by acknowledging its duty towards society. This year, Retake visited the Prerana Anti Trafficking Centre in Grant Road, Mumbai, on 26th December 2022 and distributed Food items and other essentials to the underprivileged resident children.
Following the ISR event, the team organized an exclusive sports pre-event, Quidditch, on 7th January 2023. Inspired by the Harry Potter franchise, it is one of the most awaited events of the year that the Mass Media students look forward to participate in. This year 11 teams from across different Colleges in Mumbai participated. The event was filled with zest and raucous cheers.
Retake has been associated with an illustrious list of sponsors and celebrities for the entirety of its duration. Renowned names familiar in every household, such as Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya, Shailesh Lodha, Shreyash Talpade, Kamya Punjabi and Makarand Deshpande, are some of the celebrities that have been a part of Retake before. Respected and recognizable brands like Swag Box, Station 91, Arena Animation, TVS, Coca-Cola, Josh, VH1, MTV, Rio and more have contributed immeasurably to the success of Retake over the years.
Team Retake, which is responsible for setting benchmarks after each year, consists of an advisory, chairperson, co-chairperson, vice-chairpersons, heads of the various departments and volunteers. Every year, it takes around six months of meticulous planning and seamless execution to present a two-day event in the month of January. The Management of the College, Principal, Teaching and Non-teaching staff have always provided relentless support to Retake.
“Retake has been an identity on its own that our Media and Communication department students have established with their hard work and dedication. It is a festival that encompasses a mix of academic, cultural, co-curricular and extra-curricular events. As the team prepares to host yet another enticing event, I wish all the best to the organizing team and the participating Colleges. I am sure, this year, too, the team is going to surpass all the expectations.” Said, Dr. Debajit N. Sarkar, Principal.
As the days come close, Team Retake is all set to set the Mahol on the 27th and 28th of January, 2023.
