Movie will go here…

"Log Line: A fiction (drama) film based on, ‘Chandu ke Chacha ne Chandu ki Chachi ko Chandi ke Chamche se Chutney Chataai’ Synopsis: Two days from now, its Chacha-Chachi’s wedding anniversary. Chandu, Chacha and Chachi realize this and individually plan a surprise for the occasion not knowing that the other two are doing just the same. Meanwhile, Chandi ka Chamcha is furious at Chandu for he has lost his girlfriend, a Chamchi, because of Chandu’s careless behavior. Chandi ka Chamcha seeks revenge. In all this, Chutney acts as a silent observer. She has a crazy ability to read the past and present of all the four characters. Hence she, invariably, becomes the narrator of the story. Everything boils down to ‘the’ day – the occasion of Chacha-Chachi’s wedding anniversary - where the story meets its destined end: ‘Chandu ke Chacha ne Chandu ki Chachi ko Chandi ke Chamche se Chutney Chataai’ "

Gulcharrey is a beautifully told story of Rahim and his past. Narrated more like an anecdote less like a film, it leaves you smiling. Captured vividly against a Mumbai which is both vast and claustrophobic, the film proves that ultimately what you need for a film is a story to tell and passion to fuel it.

Movie will go here…

"Kash - a drag of smoke that satisfies temporarily a person’s innate compulsive need of escaping from reality. This is the story of a mind that takes a drag not of smoke, but of the desire of substantiating its absolute Superiority. The mind in this film contains two different personalities. The one represented by the man inside a Television (with the TV symbolizing the Sub-Conscious), is a simple and submissive personality which has somehow been trapped in the Sub-Conscious by the more intellectual and devious personality represented by the man outside the TV. The room with all the pictures represents the Conscious mind with memories and ideas. In the addiction of Superiority, the man outside the TV hatches a treacherous plan of annihilating the inferior one inside the TV. But a simple mistake of his turns everything upside down and his desire of Supremacy leads to his own destruction. The Drag consumes the addict. An interesting tale of conflict inside a human mind, it will surely keep you curious and engrossed till the very end. "

Movie will go here…

"The story is simple and straightforward. Born into a family consisting of a poor and struggling mother and an alcoholic and abusive father, Shankari has one gift that the world doesn’t know yet. She is unusually intelligent for a young girl of her age. Born into this world like any other child, she cherishes many dreams in her heart. Ever since the day her mother pulled her out of school, she yearns to go back. She yearns to learn. But life hasn’t been very eventful since. All she does is go around helping her mother doing odd chores. But one day is different. It isn’t like the other days. It is that one day that we chronicle in this short film. But do the events of the day change the course of this unfortunate girl's life? Maybe... Maybe not... Poverty and extreme adversity forces many of India’s bright young minds to perish in oblivion. What we fail to understand is that children dream irrespective of their conditions. Every child born into this world cherishes a dream. But not every child can see it come true. Vibha, an NGO devoted to empowerment through education is doing it’s bit in helping children across India. ‘Shankari’, though a fictional short film, is an attempt to get Vibha’s message across by telling a story… "

Directed by Abhijith Yelandur Ramesh
I completed by B.E. in Information Science from UVCE, Bangalore in 2005. It was only much later that I realized my passion lay in cinema. I had always felt a serious inclination to story telling. Any genre of story telling interested me. I chose cinema, for it appeared to be the most fascinating of all the story telling techniques. My repertoire of work isn’t much. I worked as an assistant to documentary filmmaker Pavitra Chalam on one small project. "Shankari" came immediately after that. It was my voluntary contribution to Vibha, an NGO that promotes education as a means of empowerment. A tiny idea that materialized in my mind formed the basis for the short film. As opposed to the regular documentary techniques of creating awareness, I chose to tell a story first and then drive the message through. Shankari was the outcome of this small experiment. It remains my only work as a director. Right now, I am penning the script for a full length feature and hope to make a film soon.
