A Story of Rejection (एका नकाराची कथा)

The story of the film is of one afternoon when a man sits by himself reading poetry. The doorbell ushers in an unexpected visitor and the afternoon take a different turn, perhaps for the better. The conversation progresses to reveal that the visitor is a young woman he had met earlier as part of an arranged marriage proposal. However, things had not worked out between them.

The woman is now visiting him to understand a few things, get answers for some questions and get a sense of closure. The conversation between them aims to be a comment on arranged marriages. By providing different stories by way of its characters, it tries to be an exploration of what all the structure of marriage entails and the manner in which two people come together to make it work.

Director Biography - Vishal Rajendra Shinde

An Engineer by profession and a Film Maker by profession.
I always had a deep inclination towards literature, stories and this unique art form called Film Making.

I started working on my first short film in middle of 2016 and it took me 3 years to finish it in 2019.

I wish to continue and pursue this in the future also, with more interesting and meaningful stories.
