A National Award winning short film, Ekti Kaktaliyo Galpo – A Coincidental Tale, is a short tale drawing an analogy between life’s coincidences and magical reality
The story is based in Kolkata (Eastern India), but the film was to be shot in a studio in Pune (Western India). The challenge was to truly represent and enhance the vision of the narrative in a studio setup. I traveled to Kolkata to study the look and feel of the city. From conceptualizing, sketching, property sourcing, to setting the streets and interiors, I led the production design effort to realise the vision of this film.
