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.
