Director’s Statement I believe human emotions are one of the most complex, conflicting and at times, even fragile elements of our universe called LIFE. And, relationships built with these human emotions as the building blocks are equally complex and fascinating. Revelations, my debut feature, is about some very simple people dealing with such complex emotions. Set in the fascinating city of Kolkata, the film tries to explore themes such as guilt, redemption and female sexuality in the context of an Indian marriage.
