National Award winning duo Sanjay Suri and Onir invite you to be a part of CHAURANGA!
Inspired by a true event, Chauranga, directed by Bikas Ranjan Mishra and produced by Sanjay Suri and Onir, is a fictional account of six days in a dark corner of India. A story of the violence of class oppression that still exists in Rural India.
A fourteen year old dalit boy is growing up in an unnamed corner of India. His dream is to go to a town school like his elder brother and his reality is to look after the pig that his family owns.
His only escape is to sit atop a Jamun tree and adore his beloved passing by on her scooter. His unspoken love is as true as his mother’s helplessness who cleans the cowsheds of the local strongman’s mansion, with whom she also has a secret liaison.
When the boy’s elder brother comes on a vacation to the village, he soon finds out about his younger brother’s infatuation. The learned elder brother makes him realize the need to express his love and helps him write a love letter.
Will things remain the same in the village after this love letter is delivered?
Will love prevail in a system ridden with caste based obstacles?
