Airtel - No Borders 
(August, 2007)
 
 

The film is about borders between two people, two countries and how we must use communication to cross these borders. Our film endearingly uses two children to show us how boundaries can be broken by talking. And it is through this communication that they eventually overcome the (metaphorical) fence that divides them. 
 
The film is universal and appealing in nature as it clearly resonates with topical issues in our world.
 
The music was composed by A R Rahman, which also lends a special simplicity and mood to the film.

Hutch Boy-Dog
(2005)
 
 

 
The first time Hutch was launched in India - they used a pug to represent what their brand stands for. A film that became hugely popular amongst people all over India because of its simple story telling approach. No gimmicks. Great compositions and a track that was easily hummable helped the commercial gain unprecedented popularity.
 
The film is about a boy and his pet pug as we follow them for a day in their lives. Shot in Goa.
Everywhere the boy goes, his pet follows. The film has charming little moments that made the film memorable and a complete pleasure to watch each time.

Neosports - Gas

Cannes winner - for sound design.
It starts of as a normal day in the  house of a middle class Indian joint family, where every member of the house is engaged in some daily ritual / activity. Slowly, events start taking a turn for the worse. This film will keep you engrossed and on the edge of your seat till the very last frame.
