Director Bio

Rising Indian writer and director whose first film Kothanodi received the Asian Cinema Fund’s Post Production Grant and premiered at Busan International Film Festival 2015. Ravening is only his second feature film, for which he also wrote the screenplay.

Director Statement

Ravening (Aamis) is the story of two people whom love finds, and yet with too many boundaries between them for their love to find fruition, it degenerates into self-destruction. The film explores a cold nihilist streak of life and has been designed to provoke, not shock. At its core, Ravening is envisaged as being an immersive experience for audiences, where they slip into and walk in the lovers’ shoes and feel what they are going through.
