January 20, 2017

The first look is out for Kalki, a short film I wrote for director Dhilip Kumar, based on a premise he had in mind. It stars Kishore and Yasmin Ponnappa, and though I wasn’t present for all stages of post-production, it was a special thrill to work with Sreekar Prasad in his editing room, pacing […]

These films are not going to be rigorously curated. The idea is more to help these filmmakers get noticed rather than separate wheat from chaff. But that does […]

I get a lot of requests to watch short films, and I thought I’d use the blog to showcase some of them — this one’s called Kankaanikkum Maranam, adapted from a short story by Azhagiya Periyavan and directed by M Arikarasudhan.
