Karthik recently wrote and directed a short film, The Anniversary, which was selected for the competitive section of the PFCOne film festival and premiered on January 6th at passionforcinema.com (Day 2 of the festival). It received appreciation from many bloggers around the world, and also from Sriram Raghavan, an established filmmaker from India, who had this to say:
"for a mad idea that packs in a lot… ANNIVERSARY. the idea works. Though the film is just a minute long…it made me wonder about the story and characters."
Molotov Theatre's production of The Sticking Place got terrific reviews by Tim Treanor and Karthik was a special mention.
"Grand Guignol puts special burdens on the actors to transcend caricature. Among the four actors, Srinivasan is the most successful, and indeed manages to make Richard a complex , multi-layered character."
