21: Lockdown 1.0 Poster
This COVID 19 pandemic has changed the world completely. As Arundhati Roy wrote 'nothing could be worse than a return to normality after this', which is absolutely true and that's what I've tried to capture in this film. The film is about when the lockdown period started in India. The minimalist life and the effect of the isolation in my house and the houses I could see from my terrace. You can call it a documentary film but I would say it's life seen from my eyes.

Director's Biography

Hailing from Varanasi with a passion of cinema and believes in the golden words of Quentin Tarantino- "I didn't go to film school, I went to films".

Director's Statement

For the longest time, I have dreamt of becoming a filmmaker. I have lived a dramatic life, full of ups and downs. But every experience have taught me something. Being alive in this global Pandemic is nothing less than living in history itself, and I wanted to have something to remember this once in a lifetime experience. This film is an attempt towards that.
