Ram Ramesh Sharma made his directorial debut with this Indie gem titled ‘Kafiron Ki Namaz’. Produced by Bhargav Saikia, who hails from Assam. Probably the first Indian movie which was officially released in Youtube instead of releasing it in theatre.

The story revolves around three people – an army man, a writer and a musician. Each one of them confess their most personal secrets to each other on a rainy Christmas Eve somewhere in Srinagar, Kashmir, while a fourth person, the writer’s camera assistant, stands as a mute spectator and records everything on his camera.

Written and Directed by Ram Ramesh Sharma | Cast: Alok Chaturvedi, Chandrahas Tiwari, Megh Varn Pant, Joydip
