The Sayani Gupta-starrer, Shameless, by writer-director Keith Gomes is the official Indian entry in the Live Action Short Film category at the 93rd Oscars, to be held next year. The 15-minute film is a black comedy thriller that beat short films including Vidya Balan’s Natkhat in the Oscars entry race.

Co-starring Hussain Dalal and Rishabh Kapoor, Shameless revolves around the theme of loss of human spirit due to technology, while it also attempts to raise relevant questions on issues of entitlement, humanity and empathy toward the migrant class. Jallikattu Is India’s Entry for Oscars 2021: Five Reasons Why Lijo Jose Pelissery’s Malayalam Film Feels the Right Choice!

Hussain spoke of “how clear Keith was with the way he wanted to tell this extremely unique story that communicates the hidden truth in society. We stayed honest to the process, had a blast making it. And then we’re here, eligible for the Oscars,” he said.

“I observe human behaviour and love telling stories about the human spirit. This world needs kindness and my films are a reminder to not get lost into technology. I make films with little funding from family and friends, everyone comes together with loads of love and passion. Couldn’t be more blessed,” said director Gomes.
