MEET OUR FILM MAKERS

Our Prayasam creates our “perceptive eye” to identify numerous unrecognized precious talents which are in abundance in our surroundings but are more often than not continue be unacknowledged. Whether we fly off to America or hang around in the lanes of the community- our “searching eyes” keep fuelling our interest. So, for us, every hurdle is like the first rung of the ladder to discover something new. Henceforth, the topic of our adda ranges from cinema to poster or fashion to foreign affairs. Our habitat is our greatest learning storehouse. Every day, every second we learn something or the other. That’s why, for us, Prayasam is a bigger search engine than Google.
