Synopsis: In the dark prison of Jerusalem, death by crucifixion awaits a young Rabbi and a notorious murderer. Before Pontius Pilatus lies a choice: to follow his conscience and set the Rabbi free or to succumb to the priests that demand his blood. Rabbi Jesus is declared guilty and Barabbas the murderer goes free. Or does he? Set in the turmoil that follows, “Resurrection” written by Soumitra Basu, tells the story of changing hearts, of struggle, of faith, of cruelty, and of hope.
Synopsis: Questions have to be answered and truth looks right into their eyes when a thief, a mere child driven by hunger and deprivation, breaks into the home of a middle class family. Torn between what they know is right and yet at times knowingly going against their conscience to satisfy their need and greed, Asamay shows the wrangle between ideals and survival.
Synopsis: Time gives and time takes away. Astitwa is a story of loneliness, a story of remembrance, a story of love, of life and loss. It takes us into the world of man encompassed by grief and clutching on to memories that torment him and imprison him in a world away from reality. Shabin is seen to be battling with his wife’s ailment, her loss of reason brought on by the tragic death of their child. But as the story unfolds, the darkness and reality of Sabin’s own demons take over.
