Perhaps: A short film reflecting the progress of life, catalyzed by the power of hope.


The movie carries different stories, all ending with the wish, 'Perhaps'. Social responsibilities, peace of mind, duties and affection; each of these topics touched by emotions and with the hope that good things will start happening if we make efforts for them, perhaps.

BEING WOMAN: A movie on how much and in what way crimes affect the life of a woman.

The movie highlights the mentality of criminals and how they justify their crimes against women, however brutal they be. It's sad that a country which worships hundreds of Goddesses is the same place where one woman is raped every 29 minutes. The movie has excellent background music, catching up with the theme.

In Search of Life: Movie showing the emotional chaos of a guy, searching for a way to happy life.

In today's world, the cut-throat competition and lack of guidance has mislead thousands of youngsters, forcing them to do even the unethical. The movie shows the emotional turbulence going inside a guy's mind, who is miserable and is losing hope with every passing moment, a hope of searching the motive of his life.

Inner Transitions: A movie questioning whether a woman can expect to be safe in the country.

A thought-provoking comparison of the life of an Indian woman when she's safe in her surroundings and not. The background score is very powerful and matches the seriousness of the movie's theme.
