the dream of finding the self…

nrit‘ is my first feature film; the story is inspired from bits & pieces of my own life lived and how I got initiated into dance as a means of self-expression. During the process of planning this film, the story intensified in my mind and grew more metaphysical branches that led to the idea of it being turned into a book first…

Origin of the word NRIT {নৃত্, नृत्}: it is a Sanskrit (संस्कृत्) root word meaning dance, Sanskrit being the mother of all languages. Here ‘nrit‘ symbolizes dance in its most elemental form, omnipresent in the crude creativity of life itself.

Synopsis: When tragedy strikes and takes away the most precious thing from her life, young Rani embarks upon a journey of self-discovery through dance in its most elemental form…

Plot: Rajat and Rani are fast lovers and in the other, each has found the soulmate! So then Rani’s world is shattered when one day she gets the news of Rajat’s sudden demise. Unable to bear the grief of separation from her lover, she runs off to a high bridge to take her own life. As she stares into the deep waters, she recollects a conversation about the dream of finding the self. Crying bitterly she takes off, walking for miles into the unknown; a chance meeting with an old drunkard initiates her into the journey of finding herself through dance. In the noise of the world she hears God’s voice as music to move her body to the rhythm of different elements in nature… thus she encounters the dancer in herself! But can she translate this new language of dance from her inner world into the outer world?
