A chase with time to reach home and watch TV...sounds passe...but it still happens for people who need to watch programs first....
This TV promo / contest spot (777, 7 shows, 7 days at 7 pm) was shot the day after it was conceived. Chasing down various locales in south bombay, Metro subway, fashion street, marine drive and star tv office buliding...the chase ends in VJ Manish's house where he spells out the contest before switching on his TV cause its time to watch TV...its 7.

Mumbai based band Goddess Gagged wanted a performance video in a shoe string budget.
Sidharth Basrur, the frontman being a good friend of mine, I readily agreed.
The bassist Krishna's house in Kemps Corner was being renovated and the main hall turned out to be quite huge.
We decided to shoot a clean performance video without any effects, camere tricks and the whole shebang.
