We spent a year working on the India release of The World Before Her. And through all the many ups and downs, Rahul and his team at Luminosity kept us going with their humour, drive and great affection. Can't wait to start our next venture together!”

This is exactly what Rahul and his wonderful team at Luminosity did for CFSI's Gattu, a small film with a big heart. Here's wishing the team the very best."

  • "It was a frightening prospect to bring an independent Hollywood film on a spiritual subject to India, until divine providence led me to Rahul Merchant. In no time at all he had a creative marketing plan, the right team, and doors started to open. I can say that the films title, Finding Happiness, describes exactly how I felt when I found Luminosity."

His leadership and attention to detail was very impressive. He indeed is a man driven by his passion for good cinema."

  • “The refreshing thing about Luminosity is it's team's commitment to quality content. They work a little harder than everyone else because they're convinced about the kind of movies they want to push. They create fresh marketing approaches for every film rather than the cookie cutter approach rampant in today's market. They're legacy driven which makes them long term thinkers and planners. Our journey of taking a film to market, took giant leaps forward when Luminosity came into the picture. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Rahul and Avadhi and hope they'll be around for many more movies to come."
