100 Years of Indian Cinema

(Commissioned cover art for AGI MAGAZINE)

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.
