Terribly Tiny Talkies collaborates with United Colors of Benetton to bring a heart-warming short, HIND based on a true story this Independence Day. The film is based on a true story about Noorul Hasan, a devout Muslim from Lucknow, who lent a part of his home, and all his support thereafter, in rebuilding a temple.

Noorul Hasan is a quiet man who mostly keeps to himself. This short roughly shows a regular day in the life of this man.

The film is shot across the beautiful city of Lucknow – Hazratganj, Dada Miyan ki Mazhar, Shani Dev Mandir, Chowk, Imambada, Gomti Ghat, and random roads and bazaars of Lucknow.

Chintan Ruparel, Co-founder & Chief Creative Officer shared his thoughts on this unique short, The idea actually came when the three of us were jamming in office one day – Sharanya Rajgopal (Chief Writer and Creative Producer), Sumit Aroraa (Director) and me. We were freely exchanging ideas with each other when Sumit stumbled upon this news article. And the simplicity of his story struck us then and there. We thought an idea like this was asking to be made, and we only paid heed.”

We’ve come a long way with rapid progress in technology, real estate boom, and the likes; but issues like religious tolerance still remain a big question mark, with fear and hatred taking center stage. A piece like this, hence, acts like a timely reminder of the fact that love and faith coexist with hatred and cynicism, just that nobody talks about them in equal measure. So, while mainstream media is quick to lap up negative news about religious differences and blow it up on primetime, here we are, trying to tell a relatively hidden true story which otherwise would never get the kind of importance or airtime it truly deserves,” concluded Chintan.
