The moon’s at half mast, Probably mirror of the crescent drive. The wood entrance; It smiles at me, seduces me in. I walk amongst the arching greens, Joyous in the divine. To the left, The gazebo embraces the newlywed; The Lord himself is the priest. Onward; A nursery, an orchard, Twinkle a million colours. A […]

Men, women and Stuart MacGill have been calling for Andrew Hilditch’s head over the selection of one Michael Beer for the third Ashes test. Every one of them say that they have nothing against Beer (the person, not the drink), but go on to imply in a rather politically correct manner that Mr. Beer isn’t […]

Three screenplays of wildly varying quality and subject matter, each for a 5-minute short. Two of them featuring extensive dialogue work in Hindi. Recipe for disaster? Kwo-oh-fee! Talaash Putlay

All sane people loath Batman & Robin, love the Nolan Batman movies, casually appreciate Batman Forever, and admire Burton’s Batman. But, no movie from the Batman canon polarizes opinions as much as Batman Returns (1992). No two people in a random room-full of people have ever seen eye-to-eye on this one. Radicals call it Burton’s […]

Originally published on May 26, 2007 on needlessly|messianic. Recently, I got hold of the Jonny Quest theme, and while listening to it, I was sent on a nostalgic trip down memory lane–thinking about all those (great) cartoons I used to watch when I was young. Comparing those to the trash they dish out now, I […]

Dark Matter is a drama with a psychological edge to it. It revolves around an average couple, Jai and Kavisha. When Jai accidently strangles Kavisha, things get really twisted. Jai, crushed under his own guilt, begins a downward spiral, inhabiting a warped world created by his mind where the reality and his perception of reality […]

I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor… […]

For a college assignment, we had to promote any social cause. My team (two more people besides me) chose to promote awareness on homosexuality. For the same, we created a print ad (given below), 3 t-shirts and a promotional poster. God is Bisexual Our t-shirts can be seen in this pic:

Dear respected everyone, Different people have different hobbies—some like to sing, some like to dance, while I like to rectify all that is wrong with the Indian society. It’s my little tuppence for our beloved culture—I strive to get everything even faintly eroding said culture, banned. That is why I’ve founded Pop the PIL (get […]

This is the first draft of a screenplay for a 5-shot movie exploring how a manic-depressive loner finds his emotional release by pretending that he’s the king of an illusionary land. It’s a part of a college assignement. Once again, feedback will be appreciated. Download the PDF version here.

Today I finally got the portfolio work I’d done at O&M. The work includes a 3 ad campaign for Cisco, and 2 posters for Eno. (This one contains a typo, which needs to be fixed–the line should read “Digest anything”, instead of the current “Digests Anything”) I only wrote the copy for the Cisco ads […]

This is an interview I took with Mr. Sandeep Acharya, AME, Air India, about a year ago to understand the nitty-gritties of the AI-IA merger. Reading Mail Today‘s “How to Kill an Airline” series reminded me of it, and I think the time is ripe for a much needed follow-up. Anyway, here is the original: […]

Hollywood seems hell bent on turning everything that’s ever worked into a movie-from pointless sequels to extend franchises well past their primes, to pointless adaptations of TV serials (like the one being mooted by John Stamos for Full House), to even more pointless and silly remakes. But, one series I really, really hope they don’t […]

While going through adsoftheworld.com today, I came across this kick-ass innovative site. It’s for an ad agency called Boone Oakley–a relatively unknown agency from North Carolina. But, the site is so innovative, I’m surprised they aren’t bigger. What they’ve done is that they’ve made their site using only inter-linked YouTube videos. So, typing in booneoakley.com […]

Came across these insanely funny ads for Orange today. These ads give an amazing twist to the “no mobile phones in cinemas” theme, while at the same time promoting Orange. Definitely better than the “the aliens are watching” trash we get shown in India…

This is one of the most innovative ads I’ve seen for a Motorola phone–the editing’s pretty amazing, the idea is killer, and the song’s too catchy for words! The soundtrack’s this song called Just a Song about Ping Pong by the Aussie band, Operator Please. Never heard of it? Neither had I. Apparently, they recorded […]

People in India have a knack of complaining about how every little piece of news is dubbed BREAKING NEWS by the Indian news channels. But, when stuff like this happens, I think news channels are right in dubbing it BREAKING NEWS. Stuff like this really is Breaking News! After all, you don’t have June 31st […]
