As we went along, working with the multitalented director/writer Phil and perceptive writer Nimmi who have added so much to the project for it to take the next leap in storytelling.”

“The Arrangements of Love is an intricate and subtle exploration of love; quirky and oddball it tells of the characters all looking for something – and hidden under their stories is the search for love, in its many guises. Love, after all, is the raft we all cling to in this very lonely sea in which we exist. Without it, everything else is meaningless” adds the novelist Timeri N Murari.
