HAMPI – City of Stones

Who are we? Where do we come from? The rocks know.
Hampi – the city of stone hides many stories. Some of them are not from Earth. Travel with this 2 minute film to the UNESCO world heritage site of Hampi. A geological marvel of nature on our planet.

This short film is an artistic interpretation of the living rocks of Hampi. It fuses the wonders of Hampi with digital art to reveal the stories hidden inside the rocks.

Remnants of a once thriving civilisation in the South Indian state of Karnataka, there are more than 1,600 monuments from the Vijayanagara Empire. It was one of the last southern Hindu kingdoms which ruled from the 14th to the 16th century. By 1500 CE, Hampi-Vijayanagara was the world’s second-largest medieval-era city after Beijing, and probably India’s richest at that time.

On a more philosophical note, the story that is hidden in the monuments and stones of Hampi whisper about the chisel of time and its intricate workings. Those of have the patience to be still and the curiosity to listen will discover the secret that binds all things on Earth – our origin and our final destination.

Hampi is an exceptional place. Every person who visits it, finds something unique. As an artist I have used digital art to depict the stories that the rocks of Hampi told me. This is not a documentary, it is a cinematic short film. No rocks were harmed or moved in the making of this video.

Crazy Gurgaon

This is a story about crazy Gurgaon. Gurgaon, popularly known as the ‘Millennium City’ is a shining example of India’s development and growth. But that is an incomplete picture. To really understand Gurgaon and maybe India, you need to see the crazy side of the city. After all it is the craziness that gives a place it’s character. It’s the crazy Gurgaon that will stick in your head and perhaps if you visit, turn you a little crazy too.

Crazy Gurgaon

Crazy GurgaonPic 1. Beer is available at every corner, but to buy milk you may have to go to a mall.
Pic 2. Developers have used every inch of allotted space to build houses and offices, but they forgot to build the parking.
Pic 3. Forests are dying, but jungles are being built.
Pic 4. Gods and dogs share the same office.
Pic 5. Even the lamp posts are crazy.
Pic 6. Parks and Wildlife – Gurgaon version.
Pic 7. Tractors race along the roads. They are ideal for the potholes.
Pic 8. We live in boxes, with strangers for neighbours.

… to be continued.

‘Bomb’ay – A short film for terrorists

2 young street magicians ‘Raju’ and ‘Kaju’, stop a gang of terrorists. The film is set around the time of July 2006 bomb blasts in the local trains of Mumbai.

Watch the film >>

The making of ‘Bomb’ay:
Raju and Kaju are brothers. They stay in a shelter for boys who were rescued from child labor. The shelter is run by an NGO called Pratham.  Raju (Shahnawaz) is very studious while Kaju (Taufiq) is equally mischievous.

The film was shot over a period of 4 days across Mumbai. In the film, the house that the terrorists stay in, was actually one of the rooms from the Pratham shelter. That shelter has now been vacated as the owners wanted to convert it into something more lucrative. Raju and Kaju along with the other boys from the old shelter have been moved out to another facility in Panvel, which is on the outskirts of Mumbai.
