‘Fiction.’ is an experimental feature film with a collection of three stories. It is our genuine attempt to make a movie without any commercial constraints or the support of any large Film Production Houses. 'Fiction.' is made in Manipal.

‘Fiction.’ begins with an unnamed man and Maya in a futuristic past, who are aware and accepts that they are merely characters in a story. The rest of the movie is split into two parts. The first follows Gandhi, a pimp and a murderer whose quest for love and redemption leads him on an extraordinary journey. The second, Love Story follows a character, Ansh on the night after he’s dumped, through his disorienting and drug addled journey to salvage his relationship. The story comes in a full circle as we return to the unnamed man and Maya, and we ask ourselves this: Do things really need to happen in order for them to be true? Tales, stories, dreams. Not everything is real. Some things are fiction.

Raj B. Shetty, acclaimed sandalwood hero, writer and director of 'Ondu Motteya Kathe', plays the role of ‘Gandhi’.

Kavya Achar, plays the character of 'Maya'.

Ansh Sethi and Niharika Chevur plays the role of the couple.

Rajeev Ravi, mentor, watching the footage of Maya Teaser. Along with guidance, he offered to give his camera for free for the filming of Fiction.

While drafting the estimate budget, in a hope of getting collaborations we had excluded the cost of Camera and Sound. But in reality, though we managed to get the Camera for free, the additional equipments and assistant charges for the camera and the sound equipments cost us Rs 88,500.

To have a sneak peak into our complete budget breakdown, take a look at this sheet.

We need to raise the remaining amount to complete the making of the film. With the last leg of the film scheduled to be shot in the end of June 2018, the film will enter post-production in the month of July. We estimate 4 - 6 months of post production work. We look forward to release Fiction in early 2019.
