About me

I was like any other child of my times, bitten by the movie bug and trying to get hold of any aspect of this mesmerizing world. My little excursions with my school friends on my way back from school saw me staring at the colorful posters that adorned the walls of the otherwise forgotten lanes. I often stood there mesmerized with the vibrant colours in the posters and the images of my matinee icons. I developed a fierce hunger and craving to be part of this magnificent world of movies. My passion for colours saw me getting into fine arts as a student and later into graphic designs. Movies always beckoned me and I found myself drawn to this dream world, a phase of my life that led me to Ace Cinematographer Director – Santosh Sivan. He became my encyclopedia for movies and on a personal level, a friend philosopher and guide. It is while working with him as an assistant that I realized the intricacies of light, the beauty of the colour black and all the subtle qualities that made a film/picture great. The beauty of my movie journey is also the fact that my flirtations with the various aspects of movie making, has still not taken me away from my first love-Posters. I never considered posters as a mere advertising tool, but for me it is a platform through which, I am able to express the movie makers’ thoughts and fantasies about their piece of art. It helps me create a curiosity and a positive feeling in the minds of the filmgoers about a particular film. I started my poster designing career with a few Hindi films and multilingual art films. It is through the Malayalam movie Pazhassiraja in the year 2009 that I gained immense recognition. Several great offers followed.
