Film outline

From the director of Gulabi Aaina and Yours Emotionally comes another hard hitting drama about marginalized people. Subverting the Bollywood film genre of song-dance and high drama, this film places characters ignored by Bollywood centerstage – a transsexual bar dancer, a prostitute, a gay couple – to tell their stories of pain and trauma, of happiness and hope, about being HIV+ and marginalized. A searingly honest film about five lives marked by pain and bound by hope – in 68 Pages of a counselor’s diary.

 

Winner of the Silver Remi at WorldFest 2008, Houston, USA

 

Directed by Sridhar Rangayan

Produced by The Humsafar Trust in association with Solaris Pictures

Cast: Moulli Ganguly, Joy Sengupta, Jayati Bhatia, Zafar Karachiwala, Uday Sonawane
