Since 1973 it has been a long journey for Amar and Sabyasachi . Sleepless nights and coffee cups are witness to the evolution of some of the most fantactic compositions: The Wild Life Parade, Portraits,Dramatic Sequences of Daily Life, and many other sensational compositions. Complemented with perfectly synchronised background music and ambient sound often provided onstage by the ventriloquist Sabyasachi, the hour long live performance by the duo gives the feeling of viewing an early film.

Their compositions often have a linear narrative structure, and cinamatic techniques like long shot, mid shot,close up, panning and even slow motion are amply used to enhance the story telling, which has duly earned their presentations the complement of "cinema in silhoutte"
