I’m a postgraduate student of Jadavpur University (India), currently doing my Masters in English Literature. I want to continue my further studies in the field of academic research. I love reading novels and I often write short stories or memoirs in my free time. You can check out my work on Instagram or WordPress, using the links attached below.
I grew up watching films, one of my fondest childhood memory is that of sitting with my parents to watch a film together. Without even realizing it, I became a cinephile. Shortly after I figured that being a film critic would allow me to write about films, something I immensely enjoyed, I started writing articles for online websites. Recently, I got selected for a workshop organized by the MAMI Film Festival and it gave me valuable insights.
It’s always been very difficult for me to choose favourites, but if I were to name a few, Seven Samurai by Kurosawa, Charulata by Satyajit Ray, In the Mood for Love by Wong Kar Wai, Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen and Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders are some of the films I never get tired of watching.
I’m really glad to be a part of the contributing team under UK Film Review because it provides me an opportunity to discover a diverse variety of short indie films, a genre that I hadn’t explored much before and I’m happy to extend my support to its motto of helping indie filmmakers.
