Director Statement

Accelerator may appear to be a day gone wrong thriller on the surface, but it is an attempt to analyse the reality of most middle-class Indian men who are oblivious of the pressures they endure. As a byproduct of these expectations, they dream big and make big promises. And how, in their struggle for financial independence and to break free from the middle-class status, they feel crushed beneath the weight of their unfulfilled promises. This film seeks to portray the life of a middle-class man who has been driving his life without pause in order to achieve his goals.He believes that when the sharp turn arrives, he'll be able to make the turn and continue on his path to success. The literal premise of the film, 'a man attempting to flee the repercussions of a hit-and-run,' is a metaphor for his life up to this point. And how this extreme change in the form of an accident exposes everything that is wrong with his life. While continuing to make those great promises, he's covering up all of his bad decisions. It's about what happens when dreams collide with reality and everything comes crashing down. It's astonishing what may happen when things take an unexpected turn that we don't see coming.
