Sounds echoing memories of childhood frolics introduce us to the world of Games. Here the rushing steps fall silent on the sudden ‘Ready or not, here I come!’. Somewhere in between the efforts to mislead other players and a burning temptation of peeping, the game of hide and seek begins. Once it starts, time ticks away quicker and quicker as if its usual pace was taken over by the excitement of bringing the game to an end. The longer the searching takes, the less chances of winning remain. When voices become more and more distant and all the players are gone the loser gets irreversible excluded. In the constant play of black and white, Games depicts the nature of rivalry and at the same time reveals very primal social mechanisms.
