"Kahani" is a Punjabi word that means "story." Storytelling has always played a vital role in Punjabi culture, from ancient legends to modern-day experiences.
Kahani has the power to captivate and transport listeners, making it a natural way for Punjabis to connect with each other on a deeper level.
Sharing Kahani is an opportunity to find common ground and understand different perspectives.
It represents the rich tradition of storytelling that has been a significant part of Punjabi communication for centuries.
The Kahani Approach focuses on the core story of your brand and considers all segments of your audience, allowing you to capture relevant and enduring experiences.
Our process isn’t conflated with production paperwork. We’ve done this before.
Filmmaking is collaborative and exciting; you’re invited to shoots and to the edit suite.
We focus on stories that speak to the heart.
We are platform agnostic. Our films can be formatted for all screens and apps.
Our films are custom made from the ground up. No formulas. No templates. That means each project needs to be properly speculated and will have a unique price.
Production schedules can vary depending on the scope of the project and availability of everyone involved. However we typically require a three week minimum for post production (editing) in order to deliver the highest quality videos.
Yes we can. We have a highly skilled team that’s capable of making things happen as quickly as you need, however we will apply a rush premium of 20% of the total budget if the delivery must be made in under three weeks.
Our friendly producers are happy to lead you through a number of creative processes in order to format your story into a powerful script. We are keen writers and love a good creativity challenge.

Inder is an award-winning filmmaker and co-founder of Kahani Pictures.
Mitch is an award-winning filmmaker with more than 10 years of experience. He has extensive experience in many aspects of filmmaking. Mitch has directed and created films, commercials, and over 200 music videos.
Inder was a pleasure to work with and more importantly he understood the vision and importance of our film. He is very professional, artistic in his own vision and executed our project seamlessly in a timely manner, meeting all deadlines while staying within the budget. I recommend him highly for any kind of filming whether it be a practical how to film or a story to be told.
We wanted to capture a poetry reading at our office featuring Shane Koyczan. Inder filmed it like we asked, and then went above and beyond by adding visuals and music that we would never have thought of doing. He went way above-spec and delivered an incredibly powerful video. It gained over 100,000 views in the first week!
Inder's videos are unparalleled for their high-quality footage, beautiful cinematography, and ability to capture the values of a brand accurately. Inder is a consummate professional. He is easy to work with, understands the video's intended concept quickly, and produces an excellent product. I would unreservedly recommend Inder for any video project.
I’ve worked with Inder on several client projects and each time has been a great experience. One client did not expect to have such an emotional reaction to a video about their products. People were literally crying when the video was shown at the company retreat. This storytelling approach to corporate videos is a sure-fire way for businesses to stand out.
