Director Statement

Dear Film Festival Organizers,

I am thrilled to submit my latest film, L.A.C. (now titled Sarzameen E Hindustan), for consideration at your festival. This film is particularly special as it is the first-ever single-shot film from the Hindi film industry and has been shot on real locations in Kargil. The story is based on a battle on the snow-clad mountains between two Indian soldiers and invading forces.

As the writer and director of L.A.C., I wanted to create a raw and gritty style that would keep viewers hooked from start to finish. The film was shot completely on dangerous locations with a Steadicam, adding to the intensity and realism of the battle scenes. It was an incredible challenge to make a single-shot film in such a difficult location, but I am extremely proud of the end result.

I am no stranger to the film industry, having previously directed two successful films - Sayonee (2020) and Love In Ukraine (2022). Sayonee won the best debut and entertainer awards in Middle East Filmfare and Midday Icon Awards in 2021, while Love In Ukraine was awarded the Mid-Day Showbiz 2022 best Writer-Director award in Dubai. Additionally, L.A.C. has already been awarded the Rashtriya Military School award for excellence in portrayal of martyrs.

I have always been passionate about storytelling and filmmaking, and I believe that L.A.C. is a testament to my dedication and hard work. I hope that you will consider my film for inclusion in your festival, and I look forward to sharing it with a wider audience.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dr. Nitin Kumar Gupta
