It is truly difficult to describe who Mahatma Shanti really is: he doesn’t prefer to limit his activities by the narrow circle and tries always to beat his own record. That’s the reason he chose the way of a film director, as it is cinematography where Mahatma Shanti can express his lust for innovation, creative search and flight of fancy.
Cinema production is like life: it is full of joy, beauty, sometimes tragedy and drama, but it always brings us to the Truth. To reflect all the life miracles, a film director has to be mature enough to be able to reflect, reveal and convey the inner state of characters and also to be capable of emphasizing. Furthermore, cinema production always requires purely deep and profound knowledge in various fields of science, both arts and technology. And Mahatma Shanti belongs to that rare kind of masters of a great erudition.
