An unfocused young man cannot get to grips with his humdrum middle class life and yearns for more. He leaves behind his family and girlfriend and goes on a trip across India to find himself. Mohit Takalkar’s stunning debut is a visual extravaganza taking in the sights and sounds of India, including temples, rivers, palaces and deserts like never seen before. Even those familiar with India will find plenty to marvel at as Takalkar finds physical and spiritual beauty in the unlikeliest of spaces. The story is based on a long backpacking journey around India by Takalkar and leading man Sathaye that led to them finding their inner core.
