About Me

Creation is my core

I entered into film making, after working in more than 12 industries –I was searching for something that would fill some emptiness within me – something was struggling to express. When I directed my first film back in 2004, I immediately knew this was my calling – It was evident that I want to do this for the rest my of film.  For me to tell a story visually to create an positive impact on somebody else is fascinating. And my vivid experience of copy writing for brands –working in tv as a channel Producer, working as a Creative Director , Content Strategist, Content Studio Head, Head of a Audio Visual Division , AVP content and creative for leading media and creative agencies gave me in-depth understanding of Branded content and Advertising. This enables me to create compelling vision and visual treatments for the films i direct, and to manage film production projects effectively.

When you next consider your branded content – Hit me up – I would love to share my point of view .

Creative Director - Mccan World

Without a doubt he is one of the most talented directors I have come across, he has an amazing eye for detail. Niddhish is very creative and pushes the envelope to great lengths. Most important part of his work is he strikes right balance between his passion, quality and business needs, without going overboard, which is a rare combination now a days.

DGM-Marketing at Siyaram Silk Mills Ltd

A good director should not just translate a script to a video but also bring the story alive with nuances and flavours. Niddhish did a wonderful film for my team at a previous agency. It was a script that required a distinct local flavor. He almost co-wrote the script with us and delivered a memorable, fun piece. From getting us great actors to adding an audio element that made the jingle more enjoyable, he really brought something special to the film. I wish him all the best in his journey.
