Chathurangal (The Rectangles)

Chathurangal a story of a woman living in a small town in India. It revolves around her vehemently holding ground against a very deep-rooted orthodox society.
Living in a small town of the Indian subcontinent is Chinta – the divorcee. Chinta – the divorcee was unique to her town, as she was the only one in such a predicament. Chathurangal revolves around her vehemently holding ground against a very deep-rooted orthodox society. She believes in living life on her own terms and the conflict arises when these believes do not fall in line with societal standards. Highly inquisitive moral police of the town, who believe that they are created to balance the pattern of society are threatened by her life decisions. They strong arm themselves and decide to deal with the threat. But, on seeing that the treat is not on morality but on Chinta’s life, they vanished when they were most needed.
The plot is unfolded through magnified, yet framed lens of various people surrounding her and the butterfly effect that a ‘moral’ and ignorant society causes.
