Shubham Shourya’s directorial debut silent short film Kaarigar receives overwhelming response

This short film has won three awards at Calcutta International Film Festival 2020 and US Best Shorts Competition 2020

Shubham Shourya is an acclaimed screenplay writer

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], November 27: The short film ‘Kaarigar’ is garnering an overwhelming response from cinema enthusiasts. This silent film won three awards at the Calcutta International Film Festival 2020. Released on 23rd July 2021 on Mx player, it marks the directorial debut of Shubham Shourya, an acclaimed screenplay writer and a recipient of Indian Television Awards.

The film’s plot revolves around an artisan working in a merchandise company manufacturing trousers. His mundane routine life takes a turn when he’s hurt by a needle of the sewing machine. The accident makes him realise that he’s probably not worthy of leading a normal life. Heartbroken and shattered, the artisan is on the verge of giving up his job till something almost surreal occurs.

“Cinema is a director’s medium. Kaarigar will always remain close to my heart as it marks my leap into the direction from the screenplay, and that too in a limited budget. This idea took shape while I was working as a small-time assistant director in Delhi before moving to Mumbai, where I was establishing myself as a writer under major TV and film production house. I wrote this story and narrated it even to those least interested in listening to it and noted their feedback. This made the story more layered and my conviction for directing it firmer and more rooted. Not going with the idea of giving the story a romantic twist as suggested by a big production house in Mumbai made it raw and unconventional. The same could be felt by viewers,” Shubham Shourya, Director, Kaarigar, said.

He is now working on a satirical web series revolving around seven characters from different backgrounds stuck in a nondescript and mysterious village. Another work is a feature-length psychological thriller revolving around a cop. The story is set in a mining company in Jharkhand.
