About Ruchir

Good storytelling has the power to touch our deepest emotions. I believe that a film that appeals to our deepest emotions, nudges the viewer to invest their heart and mind into the story.

I have always been curious about the extraordinary stories of common people. I feel there is a powerful story to tell about every human. In the last nine years working as a documentary filmmaker, I got the chance to travel the length and breadth of India and have a conversation with thousands of common folk, villagers and city dwellers.

Filmmaking/storytelling is a heartfelt and emotional experience for me. I believe in familiarizing myself with the subject and bringing out the human aspect of each potential story, along with making the subject feel comfortable within a filming environment. This helps me to capture candid and honest interviews of people and weave a sincere and authentic story around the person or the community.

In my last job, I worked as a senior filmmaker for eight years at Milaap, India’s largest crowdfunding platform, where I scripted, directed, shot and edited documentary films to tell inspiring stories about individuals and organizations making a difference on the ground. The videos I made at Milaap garnered millions of views organically on Facebook and YouTube and were able to inspire action and raise more than 300 million rupees for different social causes.

Since January 2021, I work as a freelance documentary filmmaker and use my skills to showcase the work of organizations or NGOs doing inspiring work to uplift the community. I handle end-to-end production of documentaries or videos from scripting, shooting and editing. I am based out of Bengaluru but my work takes me across India in pursuit of stories and conversations. I hope to continue to showcase authentic and inspiring stories that speak to the hearts of the people.
