Apaharan -Cinematography is excellent. Although the film has been shot in Wai [Maharashtra], not once do you feel that it's not Bihar.

Dobara - Cinematography is pleasing and captures the various moods well.

Gangaajal - Cinematographer Arvind K's visuals lend tremendous character to the discontented yet deceptively calm temple town (shot in Wai, Maharashtra) where the plot unfolds.

Dil Dosti Etc. - Cinematography is well-done and helps the film in creating the various moods of fun, debauchery, softness, camaraderie as it captures Delhi’s student life.
