Very proud to announce that my feature PATANG (Berlin, Tribeca, Chicago, Mill Valley, Hawaii, Vancouver) will be coming out on June 15th in the US and Canada in theaters across North America!
Roger Ebert writes "The storytelling is effortless, hypnotically beautiful visuals, a kaliedoscope of colors, music, faces and a little romance. Bhargava is masterful..."

musik dan sinematografinya ciamik. pulang selalu menjadi kisah yang agung.
A wonderful short film that most people can relate to. We are all longing for something in life and often longing for the things that other people have and may take for granted. I like the way the film interpolates images of India and also the scene in Time Square. Good cinematography.
You definately put some work into this! Nice plot, and I think anyone can relate to wanting those things we do not have.
'There's definitely something there, no doubt, but it's not enough.' - i agree.
There's definitely something there, no doubt, but it's not enough.
Beautiful film. More complex, moving and meaningful that most films many times its length. May all your films be this good.
Engaging characters and creative shooting here. I enjoyed the perspective of NYC offered by the film, with its mixture of gaudiness and grime, and the insight into an immigrant experience. Nicely done.
It sucked. Bad editing. Bad acting. Somewhat insulting to watch.
I wasn't going to watch this film, but I'm so glad I did. It's beautifully shot: a wide range of mid-shots combined with close up and point of view shots makes me gain a perspective from Raj's point of view.
I especially loved the unexpected comedy and the sinister turn it takes, simply brilliant.
Beautiful. What an incredible short film. The acting was immense.
Loved this simple short film, which shows two diffrent perceptions of life in India from 2 migrants points of view.
This had me pretty much transfixed. Beautiful and surprising.
beautiful. i fell in love within the first minute.
Good film on both cultural misunderstanding and culture as almost an element of the soul, and on the loneliness of migration and the loneliness of the city. The city scenes and flashes of life are both contrastive and universal.
Lonely reality of living abroad in the eyes of two migrants.
Is very weird how this little short stuck with me. I still remember the river at the end.
Prashant Bhargava's latest feature PATANG will have its north american premiere in the World Narrative Competition at Tribeca. Follow the project on MUBI GARAGE: http://mubi.com/garage/projects/16
I love the way the memory flashbacks look. Some really nice cinematography throughout. Unfortunately I think the acting rarely rises above the page and weighs the piece down too much. A great concept for a short but it could easily be much shorter.
Prashant Bhargava's new film Patang will be premiering at the 61st Berlinale in the Forum Section. Visit www.facebook.com/patangfilm or www.patang.tv
i love this film and now I am soooo looking forward to Bhargava's upcoming feature length- PATANG- set during one of India's largest kite festival!
As a photographer myself, I especially love the powerful images and and the vivd colours.
Wonderful little short, the contrasting worlds brought together by grainy film made exquisite dreamy cinematography.
The story tells of the sad truths of isolation in over populated metropolis areas, something which is a reality for both the landed and natives of the country.
Worth a watch!
A stylish exploration of American alienation and accomplished cinematography keeps this meandering drama together.
