Shreelancer, a 98-minute feature film is the contemporary take on the life of a freelancer in today’s India. Shreelancer follows Arjun Radhakrishnan (Shree), a Bangalore based mid 20’s freelance copywriter who is battling with nagging self-doubts about his artistic abilities. He does ads for small time ad agencies, but is quite frustrated that the world doesn’t seem to understand or respect freelancers. Unable to concentrate at home, he visits various cafes to find his peace and works from there. Addicted to his cellphone and the social media, Shree’s worldview is shaped by what he reads online, not having traveled much in the “real” world. As fate would have it, Shree gets an invitation to attend an all-expenses paid trip to a college friend’s wedding. And life as he knows it will never be the same again for Shree.
