Talking about the locations and sets and how they added character to Thar, Director Raj Singh Chaudhary added, “There are two things, one is creating a visual world, which is real, and the other, a cinematic world. Cinema and reality is something that you need to balance out, and the locations that we shot in were imperative in creating the world of Thar. My intention was to show Rajasthan in a way that nobody has ever shown before while also making sure that it resonates with the Western Noir genre. The locations had to be gritty and hard hitting, it had to be tough, while being visually stunning, this is why I call it a ‘character’. We’ve put together each location keeping in mind various factors. For instance, even for a small shot of a jeep driving through a driveway, I have traveled to a location 45 minutes away, just to make sure that we don’t lose the character in any way.”
