Julia Parker

Sorry, Amit. I have been so busy this last week and a half that I haven't been able to watch it. I'm shooting again today and am away this weekend. Can I still watch it next week when things slow down?

Devin Mills

Wonderful music!

Janet Scott

That, was just beautiful. I loved the sound track that enhanced the emotions. A story told by expression alone. No words were needed. I want to see the entire thing now please...

Janet Scott

Talk about evoking emotion with expression alone...That was sheer poetry in motion Amit

Amit Mehra

Thank you Janet for such kind words. Glad you liked the trailer. Sending you a msg for the screening. :)

Janet Scott

You are welcome, and it is so true. Not one word needed to be conveyed... the soul did the talking. Sometimes it is when we say the least.... we speak volumes.

It seems to be a very good independent movie. I like what I saw and I'd like to see more! Keep us updated! Hope you are submitting to some festivals. Best of luck

Amit Mehra

Thanks Sylvie. sending you a pvt msg. pl check.

Amit Mehra

Thanks Vonn for your messages. Ekanth has been completed. I am doing the test screenings with peers from around the world to get an idea of how it has shaped up and perhaps get some great suggestions that I could incorporate in the post production stage before I release it for the wider audience on the net. This is more of a learning exercise for me as a filmmaker as I start my journey into the world of feature films. I am hugely grateful for all the lovely people here who have taken out time to watch the film and give their honest feedback and some very good valuable suggestions, some of which I am going to incorporate in the final film. Cheers!

Andrew Unvericht

I think that the idea of it is brilliant and I hope it goes well for you. It would be interesting to see a movie like this.

Thank you Andrew. Sent you a pvt message here.

Dear Amit, excellent scenes for our desperate crises in India and around the world. Unfortunately, distribution's a problem as I was just reading. Let's encourage each other to continue our filmmaking until we emerge from the upcoming Hollywood "implosion." Then we could work together. Best wishes.

Yury Krasnopolsky

dear Amit! I allocated time and watched your movie. I will tell the following. you are talented! you wrote and executed in the movie deep thought according to the contents. at the same time, if you want to receive popularity among the European viewer, you should consider to what in Europe the special attention is paid. it is a question of acting. about natural execution by actors of the roles. in my opinion, the best actors of your movie are the boy and the police officer as their characters were the most natural and real in the movie. you should arrive to Russia and Belarus on our festivals of short films and you will see as Russians actors play roles. how many energy and the true emotions in their work. then you will understand what I mean. it is sure that you won the Indian viewer, but you still should win the European viewer. I have no doubt you will succeed, Amit. with deep respect for your director's skill, yury krasnopolsky

Looks interesting !

Milt Barlow

Good luck with this in 2014 Amit Milt www.firstritesfilms.com

Ivan Petric

Amit, looks impressive, suggest you add English subtitles for your audience. And for the background music just low music without the loud vocal, battam, battam, etc., or add some action music during the vehicle scene, etc.... Good Luck.

Milt Barlow

Certainly agree with Ivan on sub titles - a must to expand your audience..Best Milt

Amit Mehra

Emotion in Motion...........

Lee Davis

I would love to know more about the story. Is each person an island? I like the visuals and the soundtrack, but I wish the trailer had subtitles so I had a better idea what the story is about. As I mentioned in my message, please let me know if there is a subtitled version available.

Lee Davis

Very interesting filmmaker. Here's a link to more information about Amit Mehra's films http://www.rediff.com/movies/report/coming-up-a-unique-short-film/201203....

Janet Scott

Thank you lee....

Janet Scott

At first, I thought, that the boy was a vision of the main character as a child. After another watch, I realise that the boy is a separate character. Yet, I still feel the boy was only in the main characters thoughts. So close, and yet so distant. I honestly thought the character was remembering an incident of himself as a child. Until, the boy helps him up and hands him his glasses. Beautifully filmed Amit. Beautiful cast also. The isolation the character felt, was wonderfully captured. Loved the choice of sounds that accompanied the piece also. I just wanted the film to go on... Thank you for sharing....

Amit Mehra

Thank you :)
