Panorama Of Contemporary Indian Cinema


Modan returns home after 15 years in prison for a murder committed to avenge his father’s humiliation. Altered familial equations force him to rebuild his life with his frail mother and a new wife who’s already a mother to a son. In spite of his honest attempts to forget the insults of the past, suppressed anger manifests itself in renewed violence.
