Welcome to my blog. Yes, you guessed right, that’s me on the left and that title up there as the name of this blog is my name. Thus, to begin with, a face and a name.
Hope you enjoy reading my posts. Mostly I write about the projects I work on, which is writing screenplays. Therefore, I like to call myself a screenwriter.
If my memory serves me right, I have been writing since 1996, I think. Or was it 1994? Or 1995? Or, Nevermind. Since then to present day, I have won a couple of awards, national awards and from time to time I boast about my achievements. Speaking of which, who doesn’t?
My passion is screenwriting. And I also like to believe that I have a great deal of experience in film direction and currently I have been into producing films as well. Not so successful with the latter though. Shhh!
Though my first venture into producing with two of my filmmaking buddies was acclaimed critically but flopped commercially, it made history by becoming the first Dhivehi film to flop big time? No, not really! That film which was called INGILI was the first local film to win an international award. But that was like in 2014. Which year is this now? That’s like, 2014 subtracted from the current year, would be, how much is it? Isn’t it too obvious that I failed in Maths?
Anyways, everything I have expressed and continues to express in here is my humble opinion of what I felt at the time I was writing about whatever I was writing. As you know we all are human and over time, opinions do change. If that ever happens, I am hoping to write a second post. I am yet to publish such a post though.
Before I make this introduction one long read and put you to sleep, I just want to thank you for visiting my blog and increasing the hits count. Just look at that stat right down this page. Yeah go ahead, have a look.
My hits count is embarrassing, I know.
Enjoy reading my posts and please do leave a comment or two, a constructive one at that. I will do my best to improve myself.
