A short and simple story based on true life event. We all are so busy in our day to day activities and are always looking at the bigger picture but, in the process we sometimes forget that the small simple act can bring smile on someone’s face.

A Joy Unbound[edit]

Directed by: Vaibhav Khisti.

Joy of giving does not always means that you need to give something, sometimes just letting someone enjoy what has brought smiles on their face is more than enough. A Simple short story about the passion of a father and his son, towards the religion named ‘cricket.’ How the journey through the museum of cricket unfurls is what the story is all about.


Directed by: Swapnil Kumawat & Prasad Bhardwaja

If we adults follow the same as what we teach kids while they are growing the world will be so different. Forgiveness, love, acts of giving is what innocently portrayed through kids point of view.
