Hi, I’m Ashik.
I’m the writer and director of Munnariv, Kerala’s first iPhone feature film and 10 odd short films. I was the Assistant Director to the award-winning Ottamuri Velicham and countless Ads and short films.
Here I write articles on making a film on your own every Wednesday. Subscribe to my Monday newsletter to see these before anyone else.

A native of God’s Own Country, Kerala, a small costal state in the southern part of India, I love this place, its people and believe it to be a melting pot of religions and cultures, with innumerable stories that a global generation can look up to.
I worked as a Technical Editor for Tata Consultancy Services in Mumbai for three years. As I believed there were better avenues for me and my skills in this world, resigned. I took a 6 month hiatus travelling across India, ‘soul searching’. I have since been writing stories, making short films, helping people and preparing to make some great feature films in Malayalam.
The culmination of all of that so far had been Kerala’s first iPhone feature film, Munnariv.
I am an adventurer soul, filmmaker, traveller, blogger, photographer, teacher, philanthropist, volunteer, engineer and most importantly a student of life, with an insatiable hunger for learning and making new experiences.
Looking forward to helping you become better storyteller.
