Documentary Short Film

Struggle with Life & Race against Time is finally completed. This initially was a university project, where we submitted a three-minute version. However, individually I wanted to create a longer version, as I had extra, vital footage which was relevant for the story. I am extremely proud of this short Documentary and will gradually share it to the world. Please have a watch and don’t forget to leave your views in the comment box below. Last but not least, share the link with your family and friends!


A Documentary based my Grandfather; Surendrakumar Bhagat capturing his journey from being a helpless, brave Typist to a hard-working Bank Manager. This is a real story of how a simple person’s life began through such struggle and crisis. His journey began with many difficulties. But ended with happiness. Struggle with Life and Race against Time takes you on an emotional journey, bringing an inspiring soul to life.

    1. Thank you very much for watching the film. I am glad you enjoyed it. The emotional journey and true warm ambience was exactly what I was aiming to perpetuate on screen. Gujarati is definitely one of the strengths of the film, as my message was clear and the culture was heightened. Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate your comment, especially being in Gujarati. Thanks!
