‘The Masters’, a unique initiative of Drishyam Films, aims to bring rare and never seen before films of India’s finest cinematic talents to cinephiles followed by an interactive session with the filmmakers. The initiative was launched with a successful screening of Sriram Raghavan’s Raman Raghav which was moderated by Atul Sabharwal.

Shiladitya Bora, CEO, Drishyam Films, says, “through The Masters, we want to bring to the fore those rare films, that will finally get the audience they so rightly deserved. Seeing the first steps of one of your favourite filmmakers on the big screen is a dream come true for the mad-about-movies Drishyam team, and I hope it will be a similar experience for our audience.”

The screening of the film is free and open to all but prior registration is a must as the seats will be limited. The registrations for the non-ticketed screening can be done here-


An urban contemporary film about adultery, murder and betrayal in the film noir style. A simple story to which the director imparts a feeling of unrest and disquiet, catching the city in its various moods. The film breaks generic conventions, notably in the presentation of the private detective through his deglamorized life and his process of discovery of ‘who did it’. It is not constructed through his point of view at all. In fact the policeman and the detective, the fact finders, are in the dark about the crime, to the very end.
