Before being eligible for consideration at the Oscars, Shameless was a finalist at the third edition of the Best of Short Film Festival and also premiered at the New York Indian Film Festival. Hussain Dalal was awarded the title of Best Actor at the Filmfare Short Films Awards (2019). Its plot touches on the lack of compassion, with its revelations of technology, entitlement, humanity, and also shows the lack of empathy towards the underprivileged.
Sayani Gupta’s Shameless is a dark comedy
Writer-director Keith Gomes says, “I am extremely glad that the Shameless trailer has been released. I have observed human behavior and I love to honestly show human spirit through my story. This world needs kindness and my film is a reminder that it is so easy to be kind. I hope Shameless will be influential in that context.”
Presenter Shabina Khan said, “The trailer of Shameless truly captures its spirit. The sense of entitlement that today’s young generation of India has, as well as the way the working class is harassed by looking at them with inferiority complexes just to do their jobs, has been projected. Overall, it is a dark comedy in terms of presentation and theme. But therein lies the message of gratitude, hope, humanity and chivalry. The entire team is looking forward to presenting Shameless to audiences across the globe.”
Actors Sayani Gupta and Hussain Dalal jointly say, “We were eagerly waiting for the release of the trailer, and now that it has been released, we are extremely excited to know the reaction of the people. Through Shameless, we have tried to show kindness in ordinary life. Our idea is to recognize the troubles of those people for whom life is not easy. We hope the audience learns from it how to make the best of one’s daily routine with their kindness.”
