About Vandana

I've directed television commercials, TV shows, music videos, and some commissioned shorts in the past. I've worked as a Production Designer on 3 Indian Feature Films; 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' - 2008, 'Shanghai' - 2012, and 'Detective Byomkesh Bakshi' - 2015. I've just completed my first feature film as a Writer/ Director titled 'Noblemen' which is traveling festivals and will release theatrically in India in early July 2018.

    Film by Dibakar Banerjee (Comedy, Crime and Drama) Production designer Inspired by the incredible true story of Lucky Singh, an extremely charismatic and fearless confidence man and thief who socialized with the rich, famous and influential of Delhi society and then proceeded to rob them blind. He was the bête noire of the police and had stolen millions by the time he was caught. A modern day Robin Hood with a twist, he robbed both the rich and the poor without prejudice. Nothing was too big nor was anything too insignificant to escape his attention. The film opens with his trial and charts his rise from the projects of crime ridden suburban Delhi to the very heart of the corridors of power. Along the way he makes lifelong friends, falls in love an manages to outwit the entire law and order machinery. Written by Anonymous
