Director and writer Siddharth Chauhan says, “Amar Colony isn't a typical film. It's a deeply personal project, a world I hold close, filled with characters wrestling with their inner turmoil. Each one grapples with a touch of delusion, and the atmosphere is undeniably absurd. My biggest champions were the producers, who believed in my vision and gave me the freedom to create something truly unconventional.

"At its heart, Amar Colony explores the profound emptiness Devki feels in her restrictive home, the crushing loneliness Meera experiences wandering the desolate corridors and the purposelessness that colours Durga's life amidst her religious delusions. It's a film that delves into the human condition, showcasing it through a warped, yet strangely relatable, lens." he adds.

Amar Colony is a culmination of love and passion and delves into the depths of human desires and anxieties.
