Director Statement

"Nimitham" (Augury) is my Debut Short Film as a Writer and Director. It is a work of fiction that focuses on various elements or concepts which science is still exploring and searching to get the right, convincing answers.

"Nimitham" deals with an unusual theme that depicts the passionate love of a young married couple - Suhas and Malini & the mysterious journey through the past, present and future of 'Suhas' who lost his memory & got trapped in an unfamiliar area.

"Nimitham" was shot in 2 days at different locations in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. The choice of location was really challenging as the theme demanded realistic locations.

Not much directors have come up with this theme and so I hope it will be one of its kind in the Short Film Industry. I have tried my best to relate this work of fiction with our everyday life still maintaining the suspense element.
