A recent review from the Judges of the MIX Shorts 2012 said, "Another Day Another Life is a remarkably fast pace film, the action never slows or halts. The title is an excellent one that implies so many different things. There is no question this a compelling short film".

Made in 2009, ADAL was an Official Selection and premiered at the world famous Short Film Corner - Cannes Film Festival 2009, and received tremendous praise from critics at the festival. Since then, the film has won numerous international accolades & awards and continues its journey to accumulate international admiration, awards and critical reviews. 

When asked to comment on these accomplishments, the Director said, "All these accolades and awards are a form of feedback that reinstates my belief to follow my instincts. I am thrilled and thankful to have met all those involved in creating ADAL, especially New York Film Academy and my Directing advisor Tassos Rigopoulos. We had a lot of fun in the entire process of making ADAL and we just knew that same energy would reflect on screen and in its future. The recognition that these films continue to receive strengthens that belief further".

A New York Film Academy alumni, the talented Gupta's assignment was to make a 5-minute film and thus came about the creatively shot, and now award winning Another Day Another Life (ADAL), that was shot on a basic standard definition Panasonic DVX 100 camera in 7 hours in a budget of $100 and stylistically edited on his Mac Book Pro. ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER LIFE is a short snappy and a thrilling film that depicts a man's tryst with his destiny in turbulent economic times.

"In Another Day Another Life, a man struggles to repress his killer instinct as he approaches the planned killing of his lover. Combining a variety of film techniques and styles, Another Day Another Life is a well crafted, suspenseful short film filled with intensity. The protagonist is enjoyable to watch, the performance well acted. His actions and motives, for the most part, are clear and maintain a simple complexity that is refreshing to see. The narrative remains slightly hazy until the conclusion, keeping the viewer engaged. There is no question this a compelling short film. It is easy to quickly get sucked into the narrative of this short film. " continued the judges review at the MIX Shorts 2012.
