Director's Statement

I was always very fascinated by the fantasy movies. Though, my idea of fantasy was never a fairytale world with leprechauns, wizards or dwarfs. To me, a good fantasy story has to be extremely real. And that is the USP of this film. Also, as a film student we tend to get carried away by gimmicks in film-making. I have tried to maintain a simplicity in the story-flow.

This is a piece of art! It is really seldom that we get this quality of film making from Indian indie film makers. Everything from direction, script, editing, cinematography is of professional standard. Kudos to for bringing forward the shear talent in film making from India!

One of a very few ameteur films that blew me away! Great work!

After watching about 5-6 films back to back on the site I was about to give up till I clicked on this one. This one is as professional as you can get. The acting doesn't feel artificial and the music compliments it beautifully. This short-films deserves accolades!

Loved it! Sheer brilliance!
