Director's Statement

We shot this film without the permission of the Director of our Academy. Cinematography was done by my classmate Baskar Rao who currently works in Hindi films. Baskar was the naughtiest boy in our class, and the two of us joined hands in the sneaking out and shooting venture. The lead actor was Keya - a free of cost actor-friend who helped me shoot the project.

We shot the whole project without the knowledge of our staff members, and lied to them that we are doing some lighting practicals. When the short won the Best Cinematography award in a short film fest conducted by Guru Nanak College Chennai, the letter was sent to our Director, and thus he came to know about the project!

The film left me totally stunned.
The film was crafted with such finesse and the narrative style
was the biggest asset to this short, which am sure will be
enjoyed by film makers across the country.

After making a good short why couldnt the makers take the trouble of creating an original back ground score? Hearing the 'Road to perdition' score did put me off.

Nice work, beautiful cinematography...keep it up guys..
