Hardik Patel


Hardik studied to be an engineer, but figured quite quickly that filmmaking is where his heart is. A director with a natural gift for story-telling, he has a knack for making filmmaking look easy. But the hard work, precision and vision that go into his work is unmistakable.

Hardik has shot extensively over India throughout his career, from small towns and villages in Himachal and Leh, to the ravines of Chambal, and the streets of karaikudi; he has shot with old faces and new; for big brands like HUL, Reliance, Microsoft and Cipla, Parle, Isprava, L&T, GE.

The most unique property of cinema is how it lets you mold time, whether it’s over a long or a very brief period.
