Sleeping Pills

"Sleeping Pills" is a story of two childhood friends who run into each other after ages at a rehabilitation facility.

Director Biography - Sourav Das

I grew up reading detective stories and mystery novels.
Basically, I am an electrical engineering student and after that, I
completed my M.Tech degree from Jadavpur Unversity. Right now I
am pursuing my PhD in IIT Kharagpur. From Prodosh mitter's
"mogojastro" to Hercule Poirot's "order and method", From Bomkyesh
Bakshi's 'penchant for justice' to Sherlock's 'abductive reasoning'; my
imaginations kept running wild... I took an interest in filmmaking in my
college days.In 2012, I worked on my first short film,'Nepothye', as an
actor, writer, and music composer. Since then, I have written, directed
and produced two short films, namely 'CHECKMATE' & '14 FEB'. The
latter was an official selection at the '5th Kolkata Shorts International
Film Festival 2016' and '5th Delhi Shorts International Film Festival
2016 '.I have also worked as an asst. director for a Bengali short film
named Nirob Bosonto.In 2018 my last short film name "Coffeer Daag
memories of an old pincode" was selected in compititive section
indian short films in Kolkata International Film Festival 2018 and
others four international film festivals. Brimming with ideas and
imaginations,I am more than ready to exploit my creative potential.
