Commission work for a documentary on the issue of electricity theft in the city of Kanpur. The poster depicts Loha Singh, a central character in the proceedings who is fashioned on the lines of a danger sign (skull & cross) most related with electricity.
He's almost a Prometheus like figure who steals electricity from the Gods to give it to the lesser mortals for better or for worse!
Check out the trailer here.

The Kiss ~ The idea is to do with the aspect of love in Indian cinema and how it has changed, evolved over the years. The visual alludes to a classic moment in Indian cinema, seen most prominently in Shree 420 and myriad other films. The flowers are used as a montage and reference to the moral censorship in our earlier films which did not allow for a kiss to be shown. In 100 years, the flowers have been drawn, we have move ahead, stayed with the times and may be at times even gone ahead but still 'the kiss' is a much debated, talked about element.
