Shiladitya’s tryst with cinema began at an early age and he became fascinated by the ability of cinema to convey complex stories and ideas in a relatively short span of time. His interest in the medium took him on an exhilarating journey through the world of cinema, wherein he explored everything from out-and-out Hollywood action flicks to the iconoclasm of French New Wave cinema. After completing Bachelor’s in English, Shiladitya went on to complete his Master’s from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences. Over the years, Shiladitya’s love for cinema took on a more academic turn and he started to analyse cinema as a carrier of ideas and a major influencer as well as a reflection of culture. Shiladitya has been writing for Cinemaholic since 2018.
