Growing up in Kolkata, his formative years were deeply influenced by Satyajit Ray, a fact that is evident in his artistic creations. In 2007, alongside his wife Monalisa, he established Little Lamb Films. Since then, he has helmed the direction and production of over 600 commercials for renowned brands including Unilever, Google, Pepsico, Coca Cola, Honda, Hyundai, Colgate Palmolive, Nokia, and more. His contributions have been recognised by Impact Magazine, positioning him as one of the ten trailblazers in the field of Indian advertising filmmaking.
In 2010, he took charge of the "Ring the Bell" campaign for Breakthrough, an endeavour that clinched the Silver Lion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Additionally, he became the first Indian filmmaker to consecutively secure two One Show merits in New York and Spikes Asia Golds in Singapore. His prowess shone once again in 2015 with the "Filaria Free India" campaign for Sabin Vaccine Institute, leading to another Silver Lion accolade.
Among his celebrated works is "The Shower," a film under Unilever's campaign, which not only garnered widespread acclaim but also earned him the prestigious National Award at the 67th National Film Awards in 2021. His directorial debut, "Teenkahon" (2014), earned him the Aravindan Puraskaram, the national award for the best debutant director in 2015. Furthermore, "The Violin Player" (2015) secured the accolade for the best feature film at the Durban International Film Festival.
In the realm of documentaries, he stands as the producer of the critically acclaimed short film "Who is This Women's Day for?" and the feature film "The Cloud & the Man." Looking ahead, his directorial pursuits include "Marichjhapi" (2020) and "The Bookkeeper's Wife" (2021).
